Blogger shout-out: The Gastronomer takes on the food world

We were poking around for good food places in LA and came across, the brainchild of The Gastronomer, Cathy, and her husband The Astronomer.

The site is packed with a powerful list of reviews delivered in a thorough and compelling manner, and we simply had to share it so you can find out about some fantastic, new places to eat.

She has reviewed places all over the world including Bangkok, Barcelona, Bzeijing, Ensenada, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Manila, Montreal, Tijuana and more. US cities she’s covered include New York, Austin, Las Vegas, Chicago and her hometown of LA.

Beware restaurants—her nickname isn’t “Tuffy” for nothin’, this girl knows her stuff.

For everyone else, you can be sure that if Cathy says it’s good, the place has jumped through the appropriate hoops to get her admiration. Matchbook it straight away.

I’m going to call out her Saigon list specifically. It is impressive and if you love food and are planning on visiting this fine city, you would be doing yourself a disservice to not read through her reviews.

To finish up, Cathy lists her favorite place as Buddakan—and we’re not talking about that one from Carrie and Big’s rehearsal dinner, we’re talking about Philly. Yep, Buddakan in Philadelphia (you can Matchbook this one straight from the button up to your right); I have a feeling I’ll be making a trip there soon…
