Wow, I’m getting a lot of flack from Tasty Nation (that’s what I want my fan club to be called when it gets formed). John, they say, why don’t you ever say anything negative about food? You’re not a real food critic!
Well, they’re correct. I don’t say negative stuff about food and I’m not a food critic. I just write about stuff that I like to eat. If it’s bad food, I just don’t write about it. There’s enough negativity in this world without some dude like me throwin’ hatred on a restaurant that screwed up my burger or didn’t put enough black beans in my burrito. Not gonna happen here, it’s that simple.
Now if you see me at a place and I don’t end up writing about it, you can assume one of three things:
- I forgot my camera. Each food post has a picture, that’s my rule. No picture=no writing.
- I was too embarrassed to whip out my camera and take a picture. I’m a self-conscious guy, what can I say.
- I did not like the food.
If you want critique, check out my takes on golf. I’m more knowledgeable about golf than I am about food so I’m a little more comfortable spewing out some negativity if it’s warranted.
What do you think? Will you still be a loyal reader now that you know I’m not a food critic?
