Name:thisisarestaurantblog
Birthdate:Feb 13
Location:Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States of America
THIS IS A PROFILE:
I like to go out to eat and I like to tell people about my opinions.

This is a place where I can synthesize the two!

THIS IS A RESTAURANT BLOG is a blog where I post reviews of restaurants. I currently live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, but I just moved here from Vancouver, Canada and have also lived in China and Taiwan. Wherever I go, if I go out to eat, I like to look online to see what people recommend. I hope that my blog will give people some ideas of where to go. :D

THIS IS A GUIDELINE:
1. Unlike many other restaurant blogs, this blog is focused on tasty text, not palatable pictures. I frequently a) forget my camera b) remember my camera but forget to take a picture until the food is half-eaten c) accidentally erase my pictures d) take pictures that are out of focus. Please don't judge the food by my flavorless photos. ^_^
2. Addresses and names and so on are right according to my memory (and usually a cursory Google), but places can close and I can get things wrong. Caveat comestor! ;)
3. I speak English natively and Mandarin Chinese more or less competently. These reviews are going to be in English, but if I review restaurants in Taiwan, I will mention if the menu has English or not. Sometimes they do not. I'll try to give Chinese names of some favored dishes in that case, if you are an adventurous non-Chinese speaker who would like to print it out and take it to the place. :D I also often use Chinese when ordering or conversing in Chinese restaurants in North America. This sometimes results in better service because Chinese people tend to be very welcoming of non-Chinese people who make an effort to learn the language. And also I'm just plain cute! XD

THIS IS AN ABOUT ME SECTION:
I'm a 23 year old American woman. I like many different cuisines and I'm not particularly picky, except for a few hard dislikes (cilantro I'm looking at you). I have a particular soft spot for Taiwanese-style Chinese cooking, cheeseburgers, potatoes in all forms, and German-American home cooking (I love you mom). You can read more about me at my personal blog.
