Meet a Member of the Nuba Team – Malloreigh Hamilton

  Meet a member of the Nuba team! Malloreigh is one of the managers at our Kitsilano location.

 

My name is... Malloreigh Hamilton.

At Nuba I...

do everything! From planning big, splashy cocktail parties for our guests to training our staff on Nuba's beautiful organic cocktails to ensuring that each and every plate of food that goes out to guests is up to Nuba standards. My job at Nuba is to make sure that all of the little details are taken care of.

My super power is...

I have a fantastic memory for numbers and facts. I can recite all of the ingredients in any of Nuba's signature dishes when asked by a guest, or tell you the phone number of the person I had a crush on in the fourth grade (even though I never called). This skill comes in pretty handy on the floor on a busy night.

When I'm not at Nuba I...

just finished a degree in communication and political science at SFU, so now I have time to get into local politics and throw vegan supper clubs in East Van whenever I'm not slinging falafel. I also love riding my bike, reading in Vancouver's many lovely parks, spending time with friends, and participating in events that celebrate local and ethical foods.

The last book I read was… George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series for the second time. (Those are the books that the TV show Game of Thrones are based on, for the uninitiated.) My favourite book that I'm planning to re-read next is Ursula K. LeGuin's "The Dispossessed." I love chatting about books so come in to the restaurant and tell me about your favourite series!

My dream Jeopardy category is…

Feminist Sci-Fi! I'm an expert!

My favourite thing to do with an out-of-town guest is...

while there are plenty of cultural institutions in Vancouver that are worth a visit (the HR MacMillian Space Centre and the Museum of Anthropology are two of my faves), I usually prefer to go for long walks along the seawall, 10th avenue, and other scenic routes in Vancouver when I have out-of-town guests visiting. We live in a beautiful city.

My signature dance move is...

called the "skanky leg", according to an index of Beyoncé dance moves.

I never leave home without... a metal water bottle full of Vancouver tap water. Even better if it's infused with fresh organic cucumber.

When I'm eating at Nuba I order... the vegan stew plate with potatoes is my favourite lunch choice and at dinner I am always looking for a friend to share La Feast with.
