Appetite for Idaho Favorites List

If I like an eatery, I'll write about it.
If I don't, I won't.
That simple.

I don't like them all. About a third of the food I've tried doesn't do it for me, and that's okay, it might do it for someone else. I figure the inferiors will weed themselves out, while I'm steering you towards the good stuff.

Before trying a place, I avoid food reviews and ignore anything negative I've heard. I want to discover a potential new favorite for myself, and like it for my own reasons. My advice: 'Own your own palate.'

That said, if you want to know what the Appetite for Idaho gal likes, here is my ever-growing list of faves:
