A fun and informative listen!

Love the humour and cleverly placed and sourced sound bites! A great daily listen on my commute home from a long day’s work. If I could make one recommendation - please consistently mention at the start of the resto review, where in the city (closest major intersection would be ideal) the resto is located. Would save me from googling! :)

Fun and informative

Okay I’m changing my review a bit because I LOVED this podcast at first. I really liked when Dani interviewed people who owned the restaurants. This new way that we get a very informal chat from one of the other writers is less good, but still informative. It’s cool in that we get an informal chat with like a friend to hear what a place is like however it’s not as good as hearing the owners or creators explain their own vision. I worry that the experience the reviewers have at these places is different than the average joe’s.
