I believe that food blogging and sharing of new food trends on social media all contribute to keeping this industry on its toes. From the consumers' perspective, we get the chance to see what we can get before physically going down to the restaurant ourselves.
I came across this post by Rubbish Eat Rubbish Grow, and I thought that the review came across a little strong with regards to the tone used (i.e. 'WTF, 'so f up', etc). I understand that the site regards honesty as one of its top priorities, but honestly? There are more professional ways in giving a bad review.
