Why you should visit it: Eric, who updates the site every couple weeks, uses great art to show readers the meals he's writing about. And even though he's not a professional food critic, his writing is intelligent yet conversational, and it's evident he's a bonafide foodie judging by the personal anecdotes he mingles with the reviews. Most of what Eric writes about is in the Valley, but he also posts food experiences he has from around the country, which might help if you're going on vacation.
