We eat out. A lot. It’s hard not to, unless your day time job is homemaker and you have time to plan and think of meals. At least, that’s the way I feel about that. With running the web business and chasing after the girl, there are several weeks I go into take-out mode two to three times a week.
The sad thing is, we have done this so much, we’re kinda bored with our local options. So what’s a girl to do when she knows she will need new takeout locations for future pinch situations?
Honestly, I used to just drive by places and hope to see something calling my attention. Hasn’t been very successful of late.
Then, the Clever Girls Collective offered a blogger contest requesting reviews for local restaurants on yellowpages.com. Taking a look at local restaurants, I found there aren’t too many reviewed in my area. I decided to do my part and review a few.
For example, we tend to eat a lot of Chinese, so I created a review for Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant. Their Mu Shu Chicken is full of veggies and the plum sauce is oh so yummy.
Mexican is another we eat often, so I reviewed Los Rios Mexican Restaurant. I love their take out tastes just as good as eating it there.
I only wrote ten reviews and most of these places I reviewed had no reviews. I suspect most other locales are the same. Wouldn’t hurt for you to give your opinion, too.
Have you ever thought of writing reviews for local restaurants?
