Today, I was excited to come home to a present from J – a copy of The Fearless Critic San Antonio. The Houston version was my dining bible so I was super happy to get it! I decided to see how my scores stacked up the the Critics’. It seemed we were generally on the same page, but there were a few restaurants where our scores were very different. Check out my comparison chart (yes, I know I am a nerd).
Surprisingly, only about half of the restaurants I reviewed are in the book. Because I am a nerd, I did a quick comparison chart. Overall, the Critic is much nicer than I am. I was most shocked that the Critic liked India Palace so much! I think J and I (at least J for sure since he is Indian) have more street cred with regard to Indian food. I was also surprised at the Los Barrios food score, which was a full 3.2 points higher than we gave it.
On the most delicious list, there are several I definitely agree with (we’ve eaten at a few great places before I started the old blog), including Dough, The Lodge (sadly, closed), Biga and my fave – Gwendolyn!
love the comparison chart!! i have Fearless Critic SA at home and often question its ratings. sometimes i think it’s way off!
Thanks for the note! I agree… sometimes the Fearless Critic is way off. I’ll keep taste-testing and comparing!
