Mike Dobranski Offers 20 Better Meals Than LVW

New, 16 comments

Last week, Las Vegas Weekly came out with a list of 50 must-eat meals, and food critic Mike Dobranski took issue on Twitter.

Dobranski used to write about his food adventures on the now-defunct Tasting Las Vegas. Here, the blow by blow in 140 characters or less:

“I couldnt put together a worse list than the @lasvegasweekly's "50 Must Eats" if I ate a pen and some paper and shit a list out.”

“I feel so bad for the small restaurants in Vegas without the PR budget to properly suck the dick of the useless food writers in this town.”

“Places that the LVW ignored? Too many for Twitter's 140. RT @MikeUriarte: @MikeDobranski Where do you eat?”

“Only the Las Vegas Weekly can make me angry while I'm at Layers. I was here when that asswipe burger bracket fiasco was released, too.”

“Remove all the comped / blown meals and I wonder how many of the 50 would remain. No integrity whatsoever. Disgusting.”

“I should clarify. Not all picks on the LVW list are shit, just the majority of them. Happy some deserving folks like @fukuburger on there.”
