We can assure you that no matter what, we will express our honest opinions every time. The decision to post about them is solely at our discretion.
Like what we always say, take anything you see online with a grain of salt. What we mean by this is all our posts here are based on OUR experience. You may have a completely different experience and, thus, have a different view on any food, product or restaurant we write about here. We are not experts, but just two people who love food and its enjoyment. With that said, feel free to share your opinions for the sake of everyone who’ll be reading our posts.
We do give our own criticisms when warranted or justified. But, we do this without the intention of causing harm, defamation or slander towards anyone.
