We had the good fortune of connecting with Kaci Goff and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kaci, how do you think about risk?
Risks are a part of life and it’s something I don’t shy away from. Stepping out of your comfort zone and what may be the safest choice isn’t necessarily the right one you must make for yourself. You have to do things that you can grow and learn from even if that means you fail. Every time you fail you are a step closer to success.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Wolf and Woman is my pop up restaurant I serve Malaysian-Tamilian cuisine based on my heritage. It’s a combination of southeast Asian and South Indian flavors and food and it’s an exploration of my identity that I share with others. Everything is locally sourced and inspired with a Californian flare.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Lunch- The Friendly, Sam Woo BBQ(99 ranch market) Activity- Balboa Park, Ocean Beach, Hillcrest Farmers Market, Zoo
Dinner- Wormwood, Hoxton Manor, Lionshare, Callie
Drinks- Sycamore Den, Polite Provisions, Vino Carta, The Fall Brewing, Setting Sun Sake

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
There’s has been many people that have come and gone throughout the last four years that I have been running Wolf and Woman that have contributed their efforts and time because they have believed in me. As much as I stand alone in many parts of my life there are a few people that show up and help, and I’d like to thank them all. I think the one person I’d like to thank especially is Cari Bernou. She is my best friends mother who passed away two years ago and she was a huge support system for me and I considered her a second mom. I know she’s still with me pushing me to keep going.
