Who should you follow to get the best on Brisbane's food scene?
Dining options in Brisbane have exploded in choice since I first started writing about it seven years ago. I've seen lots of food bloggers come and go, but there's always those that stand out from the crowd.
When I choose to read a food blog, I expect to find interesting and truthful commentary that goes beyond the ordinary report on what was eaten. Something that gives an insight into the venue, the food style and chef's direction. I want a blog that takes me to new and back to established places that are worth visiting, and gives tips on what to order or how to get the most from the experience.
If the post is written from a hosted experience, I want to know about it and expect disclosure. It's only good manners. I don't place much value on websites and newsletters that are written as advertorials when this is not disclosed to the reader, although they can be useful for keeping track of new openings.
Here are my 10 top pics
