Food Porn

[food porn archive]

We realize that Buffalo Eats has not invented the term “Food Porn” (Anthony Bourdain deserves most of the credit) and we also realize that using a 3 megapixel iPhone to take pictures (often in a dimly lit area) isn’t exactly the same as a $1,000 Digital SLR to capture the amazing quality of whatever we are eating.  But I like the term Food Porn, it allows us to write about restaurants without getting too serious.  And I like taking pictures with my iPhone because I don’t want to draw attention to myself by using a digital camera with a flash.

Buffalo Eats was originally designed to give Western New yorkers an archive of various restaurants in Buffalo.  We are trying to introduce restaurants that don’t have a large internet/advertising presence and could be unknown to most locals.  So while we may not be living up to the title “Food Porn” we are taking a fun look at the restaurants in the area.  We tend to have a positive, optimistic atmosphere in our reviews and are not overly critical or cynical.  However if something sucks (service, food quality, parking, whatever) we will openly talk about it.

So please, enjoy our articles and if a place sounds like something that interests you, please try it out.  As residents of Buffalo we are incredibly lucky that our city is filled with a remarkable amount of good restaurants, it would be a shame to only eat at the same restaurants over and over and miss out on something.  Additionally we try to avoid national chain restaurants.  However we have some exceptions on the site, but if your looking for a review of your favorite TGI Fridays you should probably stop because it’s not going to happen.

    • agreed, its so good that their owner doesn’t need to go around advertising in the comments sections of food blogs.
