Food Douche

A “food douche” is a “food snob” or food “know-it-all.” The term “douche” is related to “douchebag,” meaning an offensive or obnoxious person. “Douche” is stronger (and more offensive) than the word “snob.”

The term “food douche” achieved popularity on August 26, 2009, when the Urban Dictionary made it an “Urban Word of the Day.” “Food douche” has been cited in print since 2007.

Food Douche is In
Okay, so here it is. If you need help to find a place to eat, check this shit out. I will try to update this space with reviews of local restaurants. Why the name “Food Douche”? Well, because I am a pretentious douchebag and I love to eat at pretentious restaurants. So spare me now for what soon will be seen as blatant hypocrisy.

The food at the restaurant was great. Fancy-pants stuff, but it had substance to go with style. We had stuff like arugula and pear salad with peppered goat cheese, grilled red snapper, risotto, etc. But this isn’t a food douche blog. Let’s get to the beer.

lazy texas and the atlantic food douche
I don’t typically waste my breath spewing grouchiness about some random dude’s opinions but I guess every now again I can break my rule. The Austinist posted an article directing attention to a recent story on The Atlantic which discussed the writer’s viewpoints on Austin’s sidewalk vendors vs. restaurants, specifically (I guess) in terms of being employed with immigrants and not regulated by the health department.
