The Land of Food Blogs

Zhongg Internet Digest (http://www.zhongg.com/linkfest/the-ultimate-list-of-malaysian-food-blogs/#comment-16959) has identified more than 65 active food blogs here in Malaysia – and this amply illustrates why eating is indisputably our national No. 1 pastime. Still, I hear from the grapevine that a food blogger (www.foodposition.com) has indeed heard about us, and is definitely going to drop by and check out what we have to offer at HICT's Blackout Bistro. Tan Wei Wei and Toh Chin Hooi: You’d better believe this… Although this place is closed during December – most students are on a long break – it will, however, open its doors for 2 days (13th and 14th) in December 2008 because the college is having its Open Day & Career Fair on those stipulated dates. Just knowing Rachel Tan is in charge of the kitchen, can create sufficient kinetic energy to push moving objects (e.g. hungry people) to head for this little charming place on Level 5 of Klang Parade. Simple but interesting food beckons…

I am thinking out loud here, but there are so many food blogs out there that many a time, it is difficult to quantify the given feedback. When someone says “the food is good” – just what exactly does he or she mean? I too am not certain. May I suggest that food bloggers should take a leaf from Michelin by awarding stars to restaurants offering the “finest” cooking? The Michelin Guide awards restaurants between one and three stars, and they are coveted. 3 stars means the restaurant merits a special trip; 2 stars indicate the restaurant deserves a detour; and 1 star means that if it's on your way, you should stop. I think this is a great suggestion, don’t you think?
