Let­ter writer asks: ‘Why is it that food blog­gers never have a bad meal?’

7 Days in Dubai - - ENTERTAINMENT -

“As a food blog­ger my­self, I must as­sure you not all of us are cut from the same cloth. Though I have re­ceived more than a fair num­ber of in­vites and obliged them; I have openly given the res­tau­rant my cri­tique and so do a lot of my peers both in a blog post and in per­son. Please re­mem­ber, we’re blog­gers not beg­gars. A lot of us don’t do this for free meals, we do it be­cause we do gen­uinely love food. That be­ing said, ev­ery­one’s taste pal­ettes are also dif­fer­ent and that should be kept in mind. We are not obliged to do any so­cial me­dia or con­tent for the restau­rants that do in­vite us. Let’s be clear here, a lot of us do dis­close if we’ve been com­pen­sated in any way, kind, or form in our own posts.”

“Ac­tu­ally this is the dif­fer­ence be­tween a blog and a mag­a­zine – In fair­ness if you go to the best places in Dubai it is hard to find a bad meal, but you do find them and they are writ­ten about if you read the right food web­sites.”

“I wanna eat where th­ese so called awe­some meals are...all I’ve seen is medi­ocre meals with high price tags.”
