Dictator Ben … I’ve been called worse

I’ve reached dictator status. And if this was about a WWII video game I would be so stoked right about now.

But actually, I’m a contributor to this new site called 3 Buck Bites, created by the people behind Citysearch. The site is perfect for today’s economy because it features food finds for $3.99 and under.

For the past month, I’ve been sending in my “discoveries” from around the Bay Area that are $3.99 or less. And let me tell you, it’s a real challenge to think of good food worth talking about in that price range for this area!

I’m not sure why, but 3 Buck Bites call all their contributors “dictators.” I guess it’s because we’re dictating what’s worth eating, or maybe it’s because we’re just generally pushy people and know it alls?

So far I’ve been posting food I’ve blogged about, like this pizza slice, this ice cream hot spot, this macaron in Napa or this sweet corn tamale. If you have any suggestions, feel free to post a comment or send me an email. For now, check out the site because if you want to see food porn every day, it’ll be front and center with each closely cropped photo! Consider that an order! ;-)

From one Dictator to another (am I the only one who feels weird about this title?): Arinell plain slices ftw! You really should try Pie in the Sky in Berkeley (located conveniently around the corner from Arinell and a few blocks from Triple Rock) if you haven't had the chance to check it out yet.

Thanks James. Never heard of Pie in the Sky, but then again I have to explore Berkeley more. I'll check it out the next time I'm in that area of the bay.
