I’m a graduate student currently doing a PhD at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. I love to eat (kind of a dumb statement because who doesn’t?) and have decided to take up a bit of food blogging as a hobby. As the name of this blog suggests, I don’t like hanging around people (I’m very shy and awkward, and I find socializing to be completely, utterly EXHAUSTING), so I eat alone probably 99.99% of the time. Full disclosure: I am NOT an expert critic or even foodie; I’m just an average shmoe with an average palate, so take my comments as worth a grain of salt. Also keep in mind that any opinions I may have about a bakery or restaurant is purely subjective (which really is the case for any reviewer) so just because I like/dislike something doesn’t mean that you will either.
The current way that I’m rating places is based on a score from 0-5. This might change in the future.
0 = Couldn’t Finish (and NOT because of the portion size)
1 = Edible
2 = Okay
3 = Good
4 = Very Good
5 = Life Changing (i.e. get your ass to wherever the place is and order whatever the food is RIGHT NOW)
Cakes, Pastries, Chocolates, Pasta, Poutine, Barbecue, and most other foods that’s high in fat, sugar, and starch
Sushi, most Seafood, Avocadoes (not because they taste bad, but because I’m allergic), Gluten-free stuff (and whatever the next dumb food fad is), salads, smoothies and most “healthy” stuff in general
