Quiet eating is a blog dedicated to travels in search of quiet eating. What’s this you ask? Originally conceived in January 2010 to mark the start of my (Chris’) sojourn to Japan, this blog has now evolved to mark the memorable food and the ancillary steps I (Chris) have taken to find it. I (Chris) have now taken the step of making this site more “professional” (futile as that may be when considering my (Chris’) writing style) by collaborating with a friend (Patrick). Together we think that greater stomach capacity makes for more objectivity.
But why name it “quiet eating” rather than “partaking in sustenance” or “stuffing one’s face” or other permutations? My (and now our) intention is that for this blog the text will not be overwhelming but rather instead complement the photos, hence allowing for peaceful enjoyment without the incessant cackle of a verbose discourse (or at least only during contemplation of witty prose). Posts are constructed through photos first and words later in keeping with this ethic.
There are no advertisements on this site (as we find them annoying) and all posts are made based on our own opinion. We (or at least Chris) take joy in providing unsolicited commentary. Actually, that is not strictly true anymore as we are being requested to review restaurants but we will still provide witty, elegant and amusing reviews. Objectively of course. So although we may be invited, our views are strictly our own. More on this in the page “about the quiet eater and contact“.
With this in mind, happy (quiet) reading.
This rhino in particular epitomizes the quiet eating doctrine. I didn’t hear much of anything as he grumpily waddled away into the underbrush after I rudely interrupted his meal.
The majority of the photos on this site are taken with a Olympus TG-3, Nikon D90 with 35mm or 18-200mm lens or my (Chris’) new toy, a Canon 7dmkii with 24mm, 18-135mm or 70-200mm lens. Some are taken by *shock* *horror* a camera phone when circumstances deem otherwise. I (Chris) do try to limit this though even though others (Patrick) try to resist this.
