The Casual Restaurant Critic is an idea that got underway more or less around the same time that the NotTheNews idea began.
The Critic gets a lot of flack for trashing the occasional restaurant that just doesn’t cut it. Usually it’s the service, sometimes it’s the food and occasionally something else. Funnily enough, a lot of the trashed restaurants are usually out of business within a year or two, proving that the Casual Restaurant Critic is not that far off in assessing their culinary merit.
There are, of course, some gems in Merida that one should not miss and the Critic points those out as well so if you are local and are getting your fustan in a twist, relax. It’s just one persons’ opinion and if you really like the place that the Critic has just trashed, go eat there daily to keep them in business!
All posts are combined on this new blog. The regular “Life in Merida” posts together with the Critic’s reviews. In order to make it easier to get to the Casual Restaurant Critic’s reviews, they have been labeled or categorized as such. If you click on the Casual Restaurant Critic category, all the critiques should show up. If not, let me know. At the bottom of the main or home page, you will find ‘categories’ and if you click on the Casual Restaurant Critic category, those posts made by the cantankerous Critic will appear.
At the moment, I am thinking about (and have already done a few) moving all the older posts from the previous blog here, the Critic will continue to post both to the old blog and this one and after a while, according to reader preferences, the old one will either be eliminated or not.
