GRUB & GARB dossier / Lady Dug
October 4, 2014 § Leave a comment
I work in a wild restaurant. There are a thousand bodies coming and going.
It is always busy and there will probably be a line out the door. Entering the dim, glowing establishment, one is likely to happen upon Amy. She will instantly make you smile.
She is petite, yet she is giant. Her personality and attitude are the most amazing. The more I get to know her, the more I see how truly talented, creative and hilarious she is. Amy Dug. Lady Duggy. Whatever you end up calling this glittering, musical delight: she is superb.
So, as my first GRUB & GARB profile, I could not be more excited. Drumming, grooving, styling on her roller-skates—this girl is a shimmering sight.
NAME – Amy Duggy (Lady Dug) AGE – 24 OCCUPATION – Musician, waitress and host
From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day? My ideal soul food day would consist of Puerto Rican comfort food all day long! Fresh fruit, guava and a cheese pastelito (baked puff pastry). For breakfast, a café con leche. Plus, some freshly baked, sweet bread from a panadería. I wake up famished most mornings.
For lunch, a fried feast of alcapurrias (fritter dish), empanadillas and coquito (eggnog like beverage) to drink!
For dinner, arroz con gandules (rice, pigeon peas and pork), lechón (pork dish), yucca mofongo (root vegetable mash) and fried breadfruit.
Limber for dessert (flavored ice).
Favorite cities for food? Arecibo, Puerto Rico and Chicago, Illinois.
Favorite splurge? Eating out and retail therapy.

5 things you can’t live without. I’d like to think I don’t need anything, but right off the cuff…
