In today’s world the first thing a connoisseur of good food, also called a foodie or a hard-core traveler who just dined at the newly opened sushi bar in town will go write a review and post it on his blog. People will view it, share it, talk about it and use it for their reference when they plan their own dinner and lunch outings.
