After reading the comment from Wibia (who has a pretty cool blog also btw) I thought it would be a good idea for me to go ahead and address the metrics that I use to rate the food I eat and review on this little corner of the web. I have decided to go ahead and remove "randomness" as a rating and just throw little comments or asides into future reviews regarding this aspect. As for taste and value and I think either one could be more than a little subjective.
What tastes good to me is most often times things that are hearty and rich and come in generous portions. I can't think of a time at a restaurant where I've been upset that I recieved more food than I could eat. I have particular proclivities towards seafood of all types, pizza, and Chinese food. Most of all I like bold flavors and I'm not afraid to shy away from items that have spice or tang. Other than that I guess figuring out why I liked or didn't like something is a reason to keep coming back here.
Value to me is basically the nexus of price, portion size, flavor and service. On this blog value will always be graded on sliding scale comparing the meal/experience I had at a place compared to what I would expect to pay for a similar experience at another similar restaurant. In other words a Chicken McNugget special from McDonald's might the get same good value grade that a good steak from Texas Roadhouse might get. That doesn't necessarily mean that I think the two are similar in any way shape or form.
I hope this explains what I'm trying to do a little bit and thanks for reading.
The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere.
