A friend of mine writes a foodie blog in Cincy that’s pretty serious: Wine Me Dine Me Cincinnati, and she’s pretty serious about her reviews. If you are looking for the hot places to eat in Cincy, this is the site. She’s a big fan of independent local places and tries to avoid the chains. She’s also a big believer in “if you don’t have anything nice to say- talk about the decor or the service”- so, you can tell if the food is worth the trip with that little hint.
Dayton doesn’t have a foodie blog- but, I’m happy to see one that’s about dive places to eat. My favorites are Taqueria Mixteca on E. Third Street, The South Park Tavern featuring Dayton’s Original Pizza Factory Pizza, Blind Bob’s, Jimmy’s Cornerstone, Tanks, etc…
Here is the Diving through Dayton intro:
This blog is to discuss the best restaurants in the Dayton region with a particular focus on the local dives. Living and working in the city of Dayton, and rarely traveling outside of the Dayton Region for work, allows me to visit a lot of local restaurants. I appreciate finding a dive restaurant that does something well and sharing that restaurant with other people.
Let’s be honest, this blog is a narcissistic platform for me to talk about all of the great meals that I eat.
Not a lot there yet, but he’s got Wa Fu written up, which has been around the corner from me for over 22 years. I don’t think there is cheaper Chinese this side of the Pacific- although my tastes run a little more gourmet when it comes to oriental cooking. Take a look, I’ve added it to my blog roll.
Just another Dayton Original doing his thing online to keep Dayton weird.
