My name is Angie. I am not a professional food critic. I’m not a chef, a connoisseur, or an expert of any sort. My only qualifications are that I like to eat and I like to type. This is a Bay Area food blog for the masses. It’s not formal, it’s not professional, and it’s not even always fair (though I certainly try to be). This is a log of me patronizing different local restaurants and telling the internet what I think about them.
If you are affiliated with a restaurant that I have reviewed, please feel free to comment, email me, or link to the post (assuming it’s good). And, if you don’t like what I’ve said, I’m sorry, but it’s just my opinion and I’m fairly sure that I’m still allowed to put those on the internet, right? They haven’t taken that away yet?
Thank you for visiting, I hope that you can find some assistance or at least amusement from my efforts. Happy eating!
I am also the San Mateo Restaurant Examiner at Examiner.com!! Please come by and see what I’m writing about!!
The Name: Why Broccoli and Chocolate
I wanted to create a food blog where I mostly review restaurants and talk about food, but also where I can be funny and rant about random food-related things. I wanted a clever name, something that was catchy but not common, and perhaps something that would make the reader say, “what?”. I was throwing together different items of food and wanted chocolate to be one of them, because, frankly, chocolate should be one of everything in my life.
Veggies and chocolate don’t really go together, so I started going through veggie names and came across one of my favorites – broccoli. I like the way those two words sound together, the “oc” noise that they each have – something in common between two otherwise completely opposite things. A poor (wo)man’s alliteration, I like to say. And hence, Broccoli and Chocolate was born, a food blog and restaurant review site that’s a little wacky but a lot of fun and, hopefully, always a laugh.
And now…for the web crawlers…ahem:
This website is a dedicated Bay Area food blog specifically for Bay Area restaurant reviews. It’s true, I’m not a professional critic, but I do love Bay Area food, and I do love to review Bay Area restaurants on my very own Bay Area food blog. There are other Bay Area food blogs around, and if you’re the author of one, please let me know – I’d love to exchange links! For now, I’ll keep on writing the Bay Area restaurant reviews and I hope you can keep enjoying my Bay Area food blog which focuses specifically on reviewing all the best Bay Area restaurants!
