Today's Food section of the LAT waded into the subject of blogs about food that can be found around the web, to a mixed reaction from the locals. Deep End Dining loved it (they were mentioned). la.foodblogging didn't like it (they weren't mentioned.) No comments at all yet from Chowhound, Eating L.A., Erin's Kitchen, Daily Gluttony, The Delicious Life, Monster Munching and Cheap Eats. Candy Blog, the L.A. site by Cybele May, got a mention and she posts about it. One of the bloggers mentioned, Pho-king, was happy at all the new traffic that found his blog today but was struck by how many factual errors were in the piece:
The author seems to believe that the editor is someone named Diamond Dog. Actually, DD is a reader who submitted a few reviews a coupla months back, but I myself, JLT, am the editor, chief eater, and biggest pho fan within a few miles of Sacramento CA. Too bad the LA Times budget woes made them cut back on fact-checkers.
L.A. Ritz has an ironclad excuse for not posting any reactions: she is off eating her way through South America.
