Peasant palette is the new foodie...
Ever since Matt met me, he’s always said I have a peasant palate! For most of my life I never ate red meat and stuck to simple food with no dressings! It wasn’t completely all bad, but I never cared for restaurants and would rather put my money into my closet. Being half Italian he’s a massive foodie and a total freak about it, reading reviews, subscribing to cooking channels on Youtube and analyzing everything! So, you can only imagine why he thinks I have a peasant palate lol. It has it’s bonuses though, when we order at restaurants I always get him to choose something that’s ‘piggy friendly’ as I can never decide with all the options, unless it’s off the drink or dessert menu, of course. Though, we do like to get a few things and share so we can try a bit of everything and because it’s his thing, I’d rather him decide with what he’s craving.
I have started eating meat again but it took baby steps, I'm still a bit funny about steak and a few bites is more than enough for me! On our recent trip to the US I was travelling with boys who eat way too much and of course, we used a lot of reviews to decide where to eat. It got me thinking…. So, I decided that most reviews I read are wanky and leave out the people like me who cut straight to the point; it has to be freakin amazing for me to be happy to spend money there and to rate it and to get my approval!! screw the snobby vocabulary, the question is, would I be happy with this or adding to my shopping budget…hmmm tough decisions?!
So follow me as I review all the places we ate at, keeping it real amongst a bunch of foodies that like to eat heaps! This one’s for the girls/guys like me out there ;p
