I love looking at other local blogs. Everyone has their own writing style and we’re so lucky in this area that there are so many blogs on just local food alone. I’ve made it clear that I’m not a food critic. I’m very passionate about food, especially local but I prefer to just document instead of critiquing. If I’m looking for a few good places to eat, I have a couple food blogs that I turn to for great advice and one of them is DerryX. It’s a little late to use his blog as a resource for Valentine’s Day to make reservations, but Valentine’s Day can’t be the only day you go out to eat on a date, right?
Looking back at my local blog posts, I’m really surprised that I haven’t written about DerryX before. If you don’t read his blog, you may know him from his twitter ( @derryX ), from frequent posts on other local blogs or maybe his blog came to your attention during the time of “Hotel Hell” when he was invited to be a part of one of the dinner nights of the show. Not only does derryX focus on local food made by others (derryX dines) but you can also see what he makes for himself at home (derryX cooks). If there’s a restaurant in the Capital Region that you want to try but haven’t yet, I recommend making derryX your first place to look.
