Adam Roberts from The Amateur Gourmet wrote an awesome article on his blog about thinking of changing how he writes his restaurant reviews- whether food bloggers should visit a restaurant multiple times before reviewing it like newspaper and magazine food critics do:
“What do these three experiences have to do with food blogging? Well, if that third time had been my first time at Chiles & Chocolate in Park Slope, I would have written a savage review. If the second time had been my first time, I would have written it a love letter. But since my first time was my first time, I gave it a half-hearted nod and that’s the review that remains in my archives. ” [link from here]
For me its more fun visiting a restaurant you have never been to before and not knowing what to expect. If your first visit to a restaurant was not up to your expectations would you really want to go back? Not many of us can afford to revisit a restaurant several times just to see if the food and service gets better or worse so its all a matter of opinion but i reckon a restaurant should be fairly consistant in all areas unless its newly opened in which case some areas may be overlooked. Also, some food bloggers may concentrate on reviewing restaurants of a certain cuisine, I for one will hardly ever review chinese or malaysian restaurants because i find it hard to not compare their food to the uber tasty street food ive had in my childhood days… hmm but i think i like taking fotos slightly more than reviewing it. I loooove food and always have an opinion about what my tastebuds do and dont like but my descriptions of food always sounds like the cheesey jap chick on iron chef oooh sugoi desu ne!!!

And for the special few who were invited to celebrate their birthday there were drinks and canapes aplenty. Me and noods were lucky to score an invite and its not every day the restaurant owners recognise the food blogging community so cheers to Peter & Karlene for their support!
Peter and their head chef Alex Hau
Truffle infused Tasmanian Brie with Pear and Walnut- this cheese was my favourite the whole night i was craving more and more of the creamy brie with the rich and earthy truffles. The round balls were goats cheese Petit Fours with Tomato & basil jam.
Crostini with Beef Tatar and fried Quail egg heehee the mini eggs are so cute! Euro Lounge uses Game Farm produce which happens to be one of noods’ clients!
Chilli Salt Squid with Aioli. Spicy but very moreish!
Chicken Saltim Bocca on Lemongrass Skewers. oh so tender chicken with crispy prociutto
Potato crusted Prawns with chilli sour cream and dried Prociutto. i dont think ive ever had prawns with sour cream but it was definitely tasty with a poweful kick of chilli and i loved the crispy potato shell on the prawn
Sydney Rock Oyster Margherita Shots and Oysters with Lemon & Mango Jelly. noods loved the shots but i particularely liked the mango jelly it complimented the oysters perfectly
Tasmanian Salmon Tartar & Scallop Stack with Black Caviar. my 2nd fav of the night the scallop was a juicy morsel hidden under the salmon
Duck consomme with crispy ricotta & chive raviloi mmm soul cleansing
Our favourite waiter who made sure i got the chance to take a foto of the foods before letting anyone disturb it hehe
Our favourite waitress who always greets us with a smile and asks if we’re having the wagyu!
