If you read the Chowhound LA message board, you may be wondering why you should pay money to get the same information from Chownews. Well, I've been reading both the message board and Chownews for several weeks now, and I can testify that Chownews is well worth the money. Reading Chownews, I realize just how much I miss on the board.
What's more, Chownews filters the best parts of the board based on the Chownews editor's experience of which posters are most reliable. If you're short on time, Chownews is definitely what you want. It also includes addresses and phone numbers that the message board postings often lack. It even includes links to maps! Very convenient.
I've been to at least a dozen restaurants now that I heard about from Chownews, and it has really improved my knowledge of Los Angeles, as well as introducing me to a lot of high-quality chow.
Besides, Chownews is way cheap. I really think you should subscribe.
