Geeking out about Food

Okay, I'll admit it - I'm a foodie! I love all types of cuisines, and can hold a lengthy conversation regarding the best pancakes/migas/shrimp stuffed jalapenos. So imagine my excitement to hear a friend decided to start a website dedicated to finding favorite dishes! It's starting in Austin, but members/critics can submit dishes from anywhere - which is great, as a large number of our mutual friends travel internationally for work. And NO, I don't get a kickback or paid, just a cool site to share. More details from a press release:

"When an obsessive craving strikes, where do you find your hunger's holy grail? Suddenly, you can't quit thinking about a juicy bacon cheeseburger, plump pillows of gnocchi, a crispy samosa or an insanely moist slab of chocolate cake. Your average restaurant guide will point you to a cuisine, but it won't necessarily help you find exactly what you want to eat. Enter the Dishola..."

"Dishola is a dazzling new user-driven website devoted to the best dishes in top gastronomic destinations across the country. And it's fun. Users can sign on to track down what they're craving (gotta have fish tacos), read smart reviews by Dishola editors, industry professionals (cooks, bartenders, dishwashers), and members—passionate eaters across the country. Then they can add reviews of their favorite dishes, and they can even upload photos of them..."

"Plenty of other cool features abound: Dishola members can create a running list of "future feasts" (discoveries they just gotta try down the road), learn about cool food safaris (amazing dishes that warrant a road trip) and convene with friends or "tablemates" to gab about food and decide where to meet for dinner...The result? You'll arrive at the door of a new restaurant and know just what to order; life is too short to eat an uninspired version of any dish."

Look for my reviews, my profile of course is - snax!
