Legitimacy & Lunch at Delarosa
Posted on April 1, 2013
As luck would have it, I was recently informed that someone other than my Mom reads my blog. But wait, wait, get this. Not only do other people read it, they want me to help represent them. Today is a big day. Vagueness aside, I’m now going to be a featured blogger critic for Oomea alongside some of my new blogger goofball friends. See look: I have a legitimate, professional headshot proving that I am not making this up.
From their website: “Oomea is an innovative restaurant review platform that challenges diners to try new cuisines and open their palate to global flavors and original dining experiences. Through this culinary exploration diners can learn about different cultures right in their own city.
Our reputation ranking system ensures that reviews are accurate and fair; the higher your reputation, the higher the impact of your reviews on a restaurant’s ratings. Users who achieve a high reputation level become Oomea critics; they are trustworthy food bloggers who know all about the best spots and following them will guarantee you great dining ideas.”
I’m really pumped to be writing about and reviewing new restaurants/cuisines here in my new town. Be sure to click my “follow” link on my blogger profile page to get a notification every time I write a new review. I know you can’t wait to hear all about my latest beet burger and arugula salad explorations.
After our mini photoshoot at the Palace of Fine Arts, we walked over to Delarosa for lunch. Oomea was kind enough to treat us to a beautiful 459 course (I lost count) lunch.
Lunch with food bloggers is such a casual affair. I promise we spent some time actually talking to each other.
