Cuisine Safari is a local group that explores ethnic food from various restaurants in the Central Pennsylvania area. This is a monthly profile on the members who are a part of the group where they can share their experiences and insights. This month we will be interviewing Alex Borodin. 

CS: How long have you been a member of Cuisine Safari?

Alex: A little over a year.

CS: What interested you in joining the group?

Alex: I have always been an ‘adventurous eater’ interested in trying different cuisines, and pushing my comfort zone to new and interesting experiences, especially when it comes to food.

CS: Where are you originally from?

Alex: I am originally from Russia, and have moved to the United States almost 13 years ago.

CS: How long have you lived in Central Pennsylvania?

Alex: I moved to York, PA in February of 2014. It was the first time I lived in the East Coast.

CS: What is your occupation?

Alex: I am a Supply Chain Manager for Graham Packaging Company, a plastic packaging container manufacturer.

CS: What is your favorite place that you have visited with the group?

Alex: There are several places I visited with the group I really enjoyed. Two of my favorites were Hans Dynasty in Exton, PA and Chez Nous Caribbean, a Haitian restaurant in Lancaster, PA.

CS: What is the most interesting meal you have had with the group?

Alex: I would say it is between those two places, Conch at the Chez Nous and Beef Stomach at Hans Dynasty.

CS: Have you traveled internationally? If so, where?

Alex: I traveled quite a bit for work and personally. I have been to most of Europe and some of Latin America. I will be heading to the western Caribbean for the fourth of July. After that my target would be to visit Asia like China or Hong Kong.

CS: What cuisines are you hoping to try in the future?

Alex: I would love to visit a place with a traditional Jewish cuisine, though the closet ones are either in Washington, DC or in Philadelphia. Page:
