reviews restaurants asian chopstix houston chinatown food foodie online magazine What Chopstix Is
reviews restaurants asian chopstix houston chinatown food foodie online magazine December 01, 2011
reviews restaurants asian chopstix houston chinatown food foodie online magazine The first question I get about Chopstix is why do this?

The meaning of that question can be branched into several different ways. One, the economy sucks and people have less frequented restaurants. Two, we've already got Yelp. So why another website that reviews restaurants and why is it specifically tagreting one city and one specific subgenre?

In all due respect, Chopstix is not Yelp. It is simply filling in the void that Yelp glaringly leaves out -- a place where good reviews are found on every restaurant it lists. Reading "reviews" by the peanut gallery of Yelp has served as amusing entertainment, the mildly informative, but mostly empty calories. There is a popular commercial going around Houston now that has a day care center hiring robots to replace people babysitting. Yelp is that day care center; its heavy reliance on readers contributing deludes the quality of the site. A good foodie website needs a staff. It needs to cater to those who simply want to read thorough reviews of a local restaurant.

This online magazine is dedicated to doing that, starting with the city of Houston and hopefully branching out to other major cities with a large Asian restaurant population. My desired side-effect from Chopstix's existance would be to help encourage restaurant attendence again. Houston has one of the best Chinatowns in all of North America and its a shame that it's such a mystery to so many people who aren't aware.

We hope you enjoy the spirit of this website and check us out frequently to accelerate its growth as a classy and informative alternative to websites like Yelp. We've got terrific interviews of people in the Houston Asian restaurant business, a charismatic and talented chef, the acute knowledge of a professional alcohol connoisseur and a charming contributing writer in her prime that discusses Asian desserts. We'll never waste your time reading this site. Our method of growth is primarily grassroots, so please tell your friends and family members, holler on your social media accounts, spread the word that Chopstix Houston is a website they should check out and let's watch this baby grow into a national phenomenon altogether.
