Win 5k for a restaurant review?! :O

In the olden times, man had only a few primal needs. Clothing, shelter, food. As evolution turned the homo-sapiens to homo-erectus and beyond, each of these needs evolved with man. Louise Vuitton took the place of animal skins, rustic mud houses turned into villas and creating a simple meal turned out to be one of the highest paid and celebrated professions in the world.

Man’s need to socialize and bond with fellows gave rise to combined dining and restaurants. The earliest restaurants were made by the Romans that date back to 117 AD. As societies around the world evolved, food became a reason for celebration. A region’s cuisine represents its culture. With the world growing into a global village, you can find all cuisines being served all over the world in restaurants.

One of my earliest memories of eating out is of a quaint little fast food joint that served burgers and broasts. As a 90s kid from Karachi, I personally saw with my own eyes how the restaurant industry in Karachi evolved. At first, we were only blessed with heavenly fast food in the form of burgers at the Mr. Burger restaurant. We had no international franchises. And then I remember waiting in lines to get to the shiny counter top of the first Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant that opened up.

From then on, the ride has been a roller coaster. International food chains such as Pizza Hut, OPTP, McDonald’s and Subway opened up all over the country. International cuisines such as Chinese, Italian and Mexican as well as local cuisines such as Hyderabadi, Pakhtun and Gujarati are easily available today in several restaurants all over the city. My favourite place to get the Gujarati delicacy ‘Masala Dosa’ is Mirchi that is a restaurant located in DHA Karachi. Similarly, the best tacos I have had were at Atrium Mall’s food court at ‘The 3 Amigos’.

The latest revolution in the food and restaurant industry has come in the form of food bloggers and food critics on social media networks. Everyone has their own opinions about everything especially food. And when people as a collective group of critics rate and comment on restaurants it improves the foodie experience for everyone.

I recently stumbled upon an online restaurant review video blogging competition called ‘Love or Hate a Restaurant’ on Talent Idols which really caught my attention. As a foodie, I am very keen on participating since my interest for food will be incentivized in the form of cash prizes!
