How to talk about food in Singapore:

With so many sources, it's almost impossible to find a consolidated platform that's specifically dedicated to the one thing we all need: food. The very same people behind smartlocal has now kickstarted a new initiative called '', a food review website which proudly displays its code of ethics.

One of the articles which caught my eye was the ROOTS Kitchen Bar Review. Here's an excerpt from their article:
"Instead of a typical airy-lightness, the bittersweet cacao mousse component had an interesting density – being velvety and almost cloying, rather than melt-in-your-mouth. The richness of the mousse was cut by the tart blackcurrant granita. Sharp and refreshing with a balanced natural sweetness, the granita held its own in terms of flavor, and did its job in lifting up what would have otherwise been a too-heavy dessert."

4. Too busy to read through? Just check out the summary at the end!

An easy way to gauge the quality of a restaurant / cafe / hawker stall is the summary at the end. However, I just think it might not be too fair to give a verdict just after a single try (and also not trying every single item on the menu). After all, having a score of 5/10 might really crush a food's owner / chef's spirit terribly. Hopefully, there's a way to encourage people to cook more passionately with love instead of penalising them!
