Twenty-four year old Carolina Kreckler, Hostess at Nick Haque Koi in Los Angeles was named the Hostess of the Week by Esquire Magazine. Carolina moved to Los Angeles when she was 16, her father was a diplomat. She loved sushi and wanted to get into the restaurant business so she got a job at Koi. Carolina says, “I decided to come back to L.A., and wanted to get into the restaurant business. Koi was the hottest thing that was going on, and I love sushi, and I had a friend who worked in the office.”
In her interview Carolina talks about some Argentinian food habits saying, “Argentinian people don’t like spicy food. That’s a big difference. Whenever I say, “I don’t like Tabasco,” people look at me like, “But you’re Latin, you’re from Argentina.” Honey, Argentinians like a lot of garlic, and lots of steak — meat, meat, meat. No spicy food, though. You’ll never see Tabasco on a table.”
When asked about LA stereotypes, Carolina said,
“The thing about men in Los Angeles is that they all love the big boobies, the lips, all that. Which I hate. I’m the opposite of that. But it amuses me. Instead of thinking, “Oh my god, I wish I had that,” I’m like, “What is this woman doing with her life?” I think being natural is the most beautiful thing ever. But yes, it is true. Women in Los Angeles are obsessed with perfection.
Oh! And also. Let me tell you. We have a lady that works the bathroom, and she speaks Spanish. Hardly any English. She told me that there are always girls that come out and look at themselves in the bathroom, they look at her and say, “Am I too skinny?” Ninety percent of the girls who walk out of the bathroom ask this poor Mexican lady — who I adore — Am I too skinny? just to hear what she has to say. So that’s L.A. for you.”
