Why are moms fond of food reviews? Easy. Because as mothers, we want to be able to order the best-tasting food within our budgets. No matter how lavish our desire to spend the day in a good-looking restaurant, the bottom line will be the taste and the price. Right? And the best sources to get information for these crucial details will be none other than the food reviews written by persons who were actually there, persons that we know and trust.
Restaurant business is the most active business here in the Philippines and you will see new food spots sprouting here and there. Almost always we feel surprised that our favorite burger joint has a new branch just around the corner. By following our favorite foodies, we instantly know where to go and the right places to check them out. Saves us a lot of time and gas!
The Right Price
Food reviews give us an idea what we should order before heading out to a restaurant. It’s not that it saves us time when we dine in but very useful in budgeting. It’s so easy to go overboard when you are already inside a restaurant, you wanted to order already, and you just don’t have the time to check everything on the menu.
The Right Taste
The most important reason of all, the taste! Most moms aren’t very much complicated when it comes to food. But when you have a family to bring in, taste issues become a little bit difficult when you want them to eat healthy too. Food reviews guide mothers to know which of the dishes on the menu will fit into her delicious but healthy category.
Know The Difference Between Food Bloggers Vs Food Promoters
The internet is already full of food bloggers actually but we all appreciate these because they provide us more than enough information about all kinds of food. The problem is sometimes, we don’t know which one of them gives honest reviews or they were just paid to give good feedback. Tip: Check out how often they use superlatives (best, amazing, superb). You can quickly decide if the writers used these words just because their vocabularies are limited or if they are just trying to lure you into dining in.
Recently, we found out about Zomato, an online restaurant review site which covers not only the Philippines but 18 more countries as well. Within this site are thousands of food reviews for over 329,500 restaurants (Zomato stats display here). Just type in a specific restaurant or browse on the categories, and you’ll be able to see so many local reviews per branches with photos and rates. A Zomato mobile app is also available if you want to use it on your phone.
If you want to share your own experiences, you may create your own account and write your own reviews. What’s more unique is that all these reviews can be shared with your friends. You can all network with each other, follow your friends and other food bloggers to be constantly updated on where they went and what went on on their food trip. There’s nothing like knowing who to trust when it comes to food, right?
So next time you’ve heard about a new food spot, an upcoming food fad, or maybe curious of something new to eat, type in and search to read quality food blogs or food reviews. Or type in Zomato.
