About "Eat My Words"

About this blog

"Eat My Words" is a long time in the making. There is no question that my favorite activity is eating, but beyond that obvious fact, I especially like visiting new restaurants and trying new foods.

That's where the "Adventures in Dining" comes in. I won't be reviewing chain restaurants. The food may be fine, but there is no adventure to a Bob Evans, Applebee's, or Olive Garden! The only time I may blog about one of these establishments might be to comment on something unusual - whether it be good or bad - that may have occurred during my visit. Otherwise, I will be focusing on small, local restaurants that feature unique menu items.

I am not a food snob. I do not have any culinary training. I like what I like and will share my thoughts regarding my meal, a restaurant's ambiance, the attentiveness of the staff, and any other thoughts that may come to mind. Hopefully, readers will enjoy my reviews and try these restaurants for themselves.

Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to share your own feedback!

UPDATE (October 13, 2012): I'm back!! For a variety of reasons (none of them good), I have not posted any reviews for about 18 months. Rest assured, I have continued to eat...just not write! I hope you enjoy my culinary adventures and I welcome any recommendations you might have for me. Bon appetit!

Whereas I do like to eat out and don’t mind spending money, I also try to be cost conscious.  Launched earlier this year, Fudha is a Columbus-based company that provides a service very similar to Groupon.

Almost daily deals are offered for local restaurants – generally $5 for a $10 value or $10 for a $20 value.  After purchasing the deal online, simply print out the coupon and use it within the prescribed time period.  Even better than the deal itself is that $1 of each purchase is donated to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank!

There is no cost to join Fudha.  Join today and enhance your own dining experiences!  Check out the FAQ to learn more!
