It’s no secret that I love food. More than mere sustenance, food is one of the greatest pleasures of life. Or rather, it can be. And dang it! It should be! But I digress… As a food lover, I constantly search for the best fill-in-the-blank around. Whether Thai street food, alligator sausage or a good ol’ cheeseburger – I want it to be delicious, y’all. It feels awful to spend time and money on bad food.
I know there are a plethora of websites out there, rating restaurants and dishes and providing info at the snap of one’s fingers. But I rarely use these, as I don’t always trust the reviews as being honest. There are far too many stories about fake reviews for me to deem some of these sites reliable.
Instead, I turn to Eater. And I love it. Not only am I signed up for Eater Los Angeles and Eater National posts, I also check Eater when I’m traveling. Most major US cities have a dedicated Eater section. And when Mister and I were in London recently, Eater London’s Heatmap was a godsend.
I tell you this for no reason other than to share information. If you eat out – ever – I encourage you to go to Eater, find your location and sign up for regular updates. Honestly, I’ve learned about so many new restaurants I can’t keep count. And some of the posts are just plain fun. For instance, last week there was a post about the best places for Mac and Cheese in Los Angeles. Mac and Cheese! That one broke me, as you can see from the above photo.
Again, I encourage you to try Eater for yourself. I rely on it more than I probably should. But you know what? I don’t care! I love it! Woo-hoo!
