Finding somewhere good to eat

I've seen this done with other areas of interest, but never with restaurant recommendations:

The question at hand was how to find good restaurants, and his answer was to take the city you want to go to and just google up some restaurant names that serve the dish you're after. Then got to chowhound or another foodie site, and rather than asking about restaurants, you put up an enthusiastic post talking about how you just had the best whatever you're looking for at one of these restaurants.

At that point, [..] the nerdfury will begin. Posters will show up from nowhere to shower you with disdain, tell you how that place used to be good but has now totally sold out and - most important to your quest - will tell you where you would have gone if you were not some sort of mouth breathing water buffalo.

For gamers, this process works in a similar fashion. If you ask a question in, say, one of the World of Warcraft forums or chat channels and no one answers, get a friend to reply with an incorrect response; within seconds the correct answer should be posted along with a fair amount of invective about how utterly useless the earlier reply was.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
