Everybody Loves Balls!

The estimable food website Serious Eats goes nuts for Angela Garbes’s recent adventures eating balls. Congrats, Angela!

Speaking of food that tastes like balls, please enjoy this pained plaint from the Stranger Restaurant Guide’s Reader Reviews:

As soon as I walked in, the waitress swiped a dirty rag over the surface and plunked a three-fourths full plastic glass of water in front of me, shoved a menu at me, and flipped open her little book. Bad sign. First, in a restaurant the size of a postcard, if the waitress canít remember what one single guest ordered, I expect that the service will likely be terrible. I wasnít disappointed. The coffee that tasted as if it had been brewed two weeks ago and left in the refrigerator, and a dose of corn syrup added to offset the horrendous aftertaste. The stringy, dry chicken, smothered in tasteless peanut sauce, covered wilted spinach drift over tacky, cold white rice. After the glare of agonizing exasperation I received upon asking for a clean glass, I nearly expected to be charged for the box.

But that's what makes it authentic.

What's with disappearing ratings? I know for a fact that one particular establishment had a review and now it has none. Is that just a technical glitch or are/can people remove their reviews?
