We’ve Launched: The Yums

Today is official launch day for The Yums!

I’ve been quietly working away getting this site ready to go, and if you stopped by earlier, you probably wondered what it was all about. Today we’re ready to go, with reviews of all sorts of eateries from around the world.

Looking for the right restaurant, bar, cafe, or bakery?

Whether you’re looking for something fancy schmancy or a food truck, a great place for a morning pastry and coffee or a late nightcap, a quick bite for lunch or a grab-and-go selection, our writers bring you practical, relatable, and reliable information.

We’re more gourmand than gourmet, so our information and recommendations are practical. We’ll let you know what’s worth the splurge and what’s not, and where to get good value for your budget, no matter what your budget is.

We already have a few regular contributors lined up, Donna Meyer (from Nomad Women), Mary Chong (from Calculated Traveller), and Sarah Hughes (from Live Dream Discover), who are here to provide you practical reviews to help you find your new favorite food spot. Interested in writing for us? Drop us a line and we can talk more.

So you know where we’re coming from, our writers occasionally receive complimentary meals, whether because they are asked to review an establishment or are invited to an event. If the writer did not pay for the meal out of their own pocket, you’ll see a disclosure notice as part of the review. We think our writers care more about sharing accurate and credible information than getting a free meal, so we’re okay with that. And they pay for plenty of meals on their own as well.

This site is supported by advertising and affiliate programs. If you click through any of these links, whether to get more information or to make a purchase or booking, it may result in anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars coming our way. We thank you for using our links to show your support of the site. Note that we’ll add a disclosure tag anytime we include such links.

If you have an establishment that you’d like us to review, a recommendation to make, or just want to connect, you can use the contact form here.

Follow us on social media:  Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. And keep up to date with all of our reviews with our free monthly newsletter. Don’t miss out on a single yummy bite!
