The Week In (User) Reviews

Every Friday, we provide you with the best–and the worst–user reviews from the week. The following reviews are real, valid, submitted, unedited (except where marked) reviews from our various sites.

Sometimes, it’s hard to pinpoint the exact essence of a dish. Recently, we had a very nice meal at a local Italian restaurant. It was fine, nothing particularly special, but a dining companion of ours ordered a pasta dish that included duck that had an odd flavor. Nothing spoiled or anything like that, just … odd. It didn’t taste like duck or sauce or rotten-ness. Finally, after much deliberation and mastication, we hit the nail on the head: it tasted like Teflon (from the frying pan, we surmised).

Anyhoo, it’s always fun when reviewers compare pedestrian dishes with creative and unusual “flavors.” It allows the reader to sit back, reflect and think “Hmm, I can see that.” Here are three of our favorites:

And it’s really all about the cheese. It takes like it’s made from melted used combs with flavor & color added. It’s heavy with little flavor. The tom kah gai is not worth ordering– it tasted like sunscreen mixed with chicken broth.It followed the traditional diner pickle taste … For those of you who don’t know this taste is like placing a preserved and chilled animal organ from a failed and forgotten lab experiment into your mouth.

Thanks for all the great reviews this week. Until next week
