Please help us to help you. We have helped you find GREAT Chinese Restaurants with our “Official” reviews of Chinese restaurants that we have posted on The Chinese Quest. But, we have also “unofficially” dined at other Chinese restaurants, and have written about them as well. Though those “unofficial”, unsanctioned, visits are never “rated”, and don’t appear on our Official Ranking of Chinese Restaurants on Long Island and New York City, they could definitely be of interest to readers who might live in those areas.
Finding a Great Chinese Restaurant
Recently we published an article “Finding a Great Chinese Restaurant Just Got a Whole Lot Easier” that announced that we created an interactive map of all the Chinese restaurants that we have officially reviewed. That article, and idea, was met with a tremendous response and all positive feedback. On the map were “push pins” that you could hover over and show you the name and our rating of that Chinese restaurant. And, if you clicked the push pin, the address of the Chinese restaurant and a link to our review appeared in a bubble above the push pin.
Feel free to scroll. Zoom in. Work that mouse! Move it all over the map.
Find a Chinese Restaurant
What would you think if we augmented the map to include all the other Chinese restaurants that we have written about? We could alter the color of the push pin so visually you would instantly know which Chinese restaurant was officially reviewed, and which weren’t. And furthermore, since these non-sanctioned visits don’t have ratings, we would indicate such when you hover over. For example, we could write “XYZ Chinese Restaurant (NOT RATED)” to denote the difference. Or, us “N/R” or “UNRATED”.
I want to hear your thoughts before contemplating this chance. Obviously, I wouldn’t want to clutter up the map with non-rated Chinese restaurants, so you can find the creme de la creme of Chinese food (at least according to The Chinese Quest), yet I can’t help but feel you might want to read what thought of other Chinese restaurants that we have dined out.
Oh the conundrum!
