About Me

So you want to find out a little bit more about me, huh?  Who is this man and should I trust his restaurant reviews? Can he even cook? Okay then! Let’s get started. My name is David Opancha and I am a New Jersey-based food blogger, Restaurant Blogger, Restaurant Reviewer, whatever you want to call me, just don't call me late for dinner. I have been writing restaurant reviews for well over a decade. I have eaten a Hot Dog on the Streets of Chicago  all the way to an Omakase at The Tsukiji Market in Tokyo
I started this blog in 2009 as a creative outlet for me to express my love for all things food, eating, and drinking. I am nowhere near a professional writer, half of the time my reviews will make no sense, the other half of the time you will be wondering where I got my grammar skills from. Insight of that I felt like the bigger online review sites were very misleading. I can't tell you how many bad reviews I read on Yelp where someone left 0 stars because the restaurant forgot to bring them extra Ketchup. This is what makes my blog unique, I do not write bad restaurant reviews. That's right, good vibes only here! I don't feel it's my place to judge another person's business, anyone could have a bad day, week, month, or year. If a restaurant is really bad, it already has sealed its own fate. Food is a subjective matter, what I like, you may not, and vice versa. 
I welcome your suggestions, comments, and tips about local restaurant recommendations you feel I definitely need to try. If you would like to get in touch, feel free to post a comment, questions, or if you prefer an email
