We asked Overwatch League players to tell us about a meal that stood out to them. Read on to hear (and see) some of the tasty replies:
Weida "Diya" Lu, Shanghai Dragons
The barbecue in my hometown (Liaoning), of course! The barbecue in the northeast is amazing!
Indy "Space" Halpern, Los Angeles Valiant
Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, up in Burbank.
Jin-Mo "Tobi" Yang, Seoul Dynasty
Scott "Custa" Kennedy, Los Angeles Valiant
I went to a bakery in Adelaide, Australia, got a pie and a sausage roll with a Farmers Union Iced Coffee. Nothing beats that.
Lucas "Note" Meissner, Boston Uprising
My favorite meal so far this summer has definitely been coming back to my dad’s home-cooked pizza. He makes the dough from scratch and adds super fresh and interesting ingredients to make an incredible pizza.
Aaron "Bischu" Kim, Los Angeles Gladiators
My favorite meal was probably the really good sushi place my dad took me to in Korea. I have pictures of it in my Twitter! One of the reasons I love going back to Korea is because my dad takes me to all the good food places. :)
Some GOOD sushi. More to come. pic.twitter.com/x3ZgTDgVUG— Bischu (@BischuGG) August 14, 2018
Pan-Seung "Fate" Koo, Los Angeles Valiant
I went to Japan... everything’s so good.
Byung-Sun "Fleta" Kim, Seoul Dynasty
Beef at the restaurant Jinhwaro was the best.
Matthew “Super” DeLisi, San Francisco Shock
Grilled salmon (antibiotic-free sustainable salmon), creamed corn, red bell cajun sauce, Yukon russet mashed potatoes, and lemon butter.
Young-Jin "Gamsu" Noh, Boston Uprising
My favorite meal this summer was boiled pig feet with sauce. I like the texture of collagen.
Se-Yeon “Geguri” Kim, Shanghai Dragons
Korean cold noodles.
Joon-Hyeok "Zunba" Kim, Seoul Dynasty
Sushi I ate in Japan.
Alberto "Neptuno" González Molinillo, Philadelphia Fusion
My favorite meal this summer has been a chimichanga from a Mexican restaurant in my city.
Joona "Fragi" Laine, Philadelphia Fusion
Probably the full-course dinner we had in Seoul after the Incheon World Cup Group Stage with Bischu, his father, and Asher. Other than that, because I missed the pizza they make here in Finland, I probably had a few too many after I came back.
olen suomarainen (what is 'us' in finnish tho) we had good lunch yesterday with bischu's father pic.twitter.com/25R160QqLY— Asher_ow (@asher_ow) August 21, 2018
Je-Hong "Ryujehong" Ryu, Seoul Dynasty
I think the Korean steamed eggs that my mother made were the best.
João Pedro "Hydration" Goes Telles, Los Angeles Gladiators
My favorite meal this summer is the Chipotle I order three to four times a week—a burrito with steak, rice, and cheese. What’s not to love? It covers all the important categories of the food pyramid!
We asked Overwatch League players to tell us how they’ve been spending their time away from the bright lights and high stakes of the big stage.
Chan-Hyung "Fissure" Baek, Seoul Dynasty
Sushi that was bought for me during All-Star Weekend.
Kristian "Kellex" Keller, Boston Uprising
Grilled pork belly with parsley sauce. It’s a Danish dish.
Sang-Beom "Munchkin" Byun, Seoul Dynasty
Naengmyeon, just because it is cool.
Grant “Moth” Espe, San Francisco Shock
My favorite meal was a big bowl of ramen with pork belly in a bone broth that I had in Minneapolis.
