Words that Annoy You in Restaurant Reviews

michele cindy | May 19, 2011 10:06 AM

Lately certain words have begun to annoy me, in reviews, articles etc. For instance, whenever I see the word "gem" in a restaurant review, such as in yelp, menupages, etc. I immediately think it's a planted phony review. I also cringe if someone writes yummi"ness", good"ness", gooey"ness" etc. Anyone else feel the same way or have other words they find bothersome in food writing? "Foodie", is also another annoying word, but we've covered that one here pretty thoroughly before.
