What to Do?
You will find the “perfect” restaurant serving high quality and authentic Asian Vietnamese cuisine,write a restaurant review based on the dining experience.
Dining out can be pretty easy these days. We all have our favorite neighborhood spots for Pho that we know and love.Those signature spots are fantastic because they’re easy. They’re consistent. They’re within reach. But sometimes eating at a restaurant can be more than simply fulfilling your basic need for sustenance. It can be an adventure full of new sensory experiences. Every now and again we have to go out of our way for a perfect meal. Sometimes we have to spend a little extra time to find it. Please put in some effort to search for a “perfect” restaurant that is worth a trip from wherever you live in the Bay Area, whether it’s because of overall culinary creativity, unique ingredients or one exceptional dish. You can use multiple information sources for the search, such as online restaurant reviews, food blogs, connoisseur restaurant reviews, or friends with culinary expertise.
You can dine at the restaurant by yourself, with your friends or family. Or you can join your classmates from the same cuisine group to have a group meal. There are forums set up in iLearn for each culture and cuisine group. It is your responsibility to coordinate with other group members to select a restaurant and arrange the logistics in your group forum. The group dining option is highly recommended. It is more budget friendly. You will have a chance to try more dishes and have a chance to meet your peers in a relaxed environment. Please use the Get Connected with Others in Your Group forum in iLearn to get connected.
You need to sample at least one item from every course -appetizers, soups/salads, entrée and dessert. If the menu is not arranged by courses, please pick at least FOUR items from the menu (beverage not included). Can’t finish four dishes at one meal by yourself? Maybe you can take two or three trips to the restaurant. Based on your research in the project, please pick the items that are best representative of the culture and cuisine from Vietnam and interest you most.
What to Write?
Today the Internet is a stew of restaurant criticism, mostly scribbled by amateurs. Their opinions now influence millions of diners seeking advice on Yelp, Urban Spoon, Chowhound and other online sites. Unlike their professional counterparts at newspapers and magazines, these reviewers publish their work immediately and without editing. As a result, online reviews are often badly written and therefore of questionable help.
Imagine yourself as a professional restaurant critic, not an average Yelper. Based on your dining experience, you are asked to write a restaurant review that stands out from the Yelp and Urban Spoon babble. In the review, please cover the following basic points that are relevant to any reader who knows nothing about the restaurant.
Surroundings Describe the area around the restaurant – urban, industrial, downtown, etc. – so that readers have a general idea of what they’ll see when they eat there.
Atmosphere Do your best to write about the décor, even if you are not an interior designer. It’s nice to know if the restaurant is geared for romantic dinners or for family fun. Also, giving the reader a feel for the general floor plan helps them decide on party sizes.
Menu Please do not reprint all the food offerings in your review. Tell the readers what they can expect to order. Cover the major groups: poultry, fish, steak, pork, pasta, vegetarian dishes, etc. This is a good place to discuss the wine list (if there is one) and give the price range for the restaurant. Tell the reader what you had, describe the uniqueness of each dish, and what you liked/disliked about them.
Service For most people eating out at most places, service accounts for at least half of the reason for eating there in the first place. Typically, you can get by with just covering speed, presentation and demeanor. It will be a plus if you can talk about the temperament of the place. Do servers look like they’re having a good time? Are they dressed neatly? Do they seem distracted? Help readers grasp the ambiance on the day you visited.
Exclusives Anything that make the restaurant different from others, like special events, cooking classes, hosted dinners, live entertainment, whatever it is.
Expert Opinions In the process of doing the semester project, you are on the way to become an culture and food expert about the Asian country you are assigned to. Based on your expert-in-progress’ opinion, what do you think of the food, the décor, the service, and the overall dining experience? Authentic or Americanized? Strongly recommend or do not waste your time? In addition, if you know someone who has profound knowledge about the culture and cuisine or complements your expertise, bring him/her.
A Few Tips
Here are a handful tips to make your restaurant reviews sing while standing out as helpful:
Tone it Down Avoid superlatives (“best,” “awesome,” “incredible,” etc.) because they don’t allow for the fine gradations that make reading a review worthwhile. Try, for example, to compare a dish to one you’ve eaten elsewhere.
Avoid Vague Language “Caesar salad was boring.” What does “boring” mean here? Dishes are typically so rich in details that’s it’s worth taking time to come up with a vivid phrase or two.
Ask Questions Your server is a wealth of knowledge about the restaurant (or at least they’re supposed to be), so don’t be bashful about pumping him/her for information. Also, if appropriate, have the Chef come out and tell you a little about himself/herself.
Experience the Courses For a serious restaurant reviewer, due diligence demands you sample every course – appetizers, soups/salads, entrée and dessert or at least one item from each food category.
Avoid Listing Too Many Dishes Cramming the ten dishes you and your group scarfed down into your review makes for deadly reading. Instead, concentrate your efforts on a few dishes: The one you liked, the ones you hated, the ones you deemed off-the-wall. If you only order four dishes, it might be OK to comment on every one.
Collateral Depending on the kind of restaurant, try to get as much literature from them as possible. Take a picture of the menu. Bring home press kits and fliers. Get anything that you might need to review later while you’re writing. There’s nothing worse than being under a tight deadline and forgetting the name of what you ate and not having something to reference.
Please have the following requirements in mind when writing your review:
Your post should be a cohesive restaurant review, not a Q&A session or a flyer with bullet points
If you need to refer others’ ideas and research, please use APA styles for citations an references, However, there is no requirement of references in Part 5
The review should be at least 500 words. However, depth matters more than length
Please edit you review before posting
