Favorite Orders for Our Dishes, also known as F.O.O.D., is the foremost service for reviewing restaurants and their best dishes.
OriginsF.O.O.D. began when Forvan Redfury found himself and his restaurant, the Forest After Dark, to be lacking customers. He knew his food was quality, and knew that more customers would go just to a place they knew they could eat at. So Forvan gathered food critics that he knew and suggested an idea to them. To form a company where they can all get their names out there as reviewers, and also promote smaller restaurants. The first restaurant they reviewed: Forvan's Forest After Dark. It was difficult getting their review published at first. Not too many newspapers wanted to listen to amateur reviewers and a no-name chef. Forvan and his compatriots sat for weeks thinking of what to do to get their reviews published, and decided that they would have Forvan hand deliver the reviews. Then, he would whip up his cuisine for them with his Food Magic. This was a success, maybe more of one than they wanted. Every newspaper they sent it to, on every corner of Totania, published it, and Forest After Dark has not been empty since that day. The reviewer's names became synonymous with critic culture around the world, and F.O.O.D. was instantly skyrocketed to prominence as the absolute say on whether a restaurant was good or bad. For a taste of the original review, an excerpt is included below:
"Forest After Dark is not just a restaurant or a hang-out, it is the full package. Excellent food, atmosphere, and service from a single, charming, hard-working man. Normally a one-man restaurant would never have such quality, but Forvan Redfury has captured the essence of what a restaurant needs, and has perfected it. If you haven't been to Forest After Dark, stop on by for the greatest culinary experience of your life. It's so good, you won't believe it's not magic!"
ProminenceF.O.O.D. went on to review every restaurant on the planet, even going to dangerous places like Orc and Lizardfolk restaurants. When they went to more dangerous places, they managed to get an escort of military personnel, as the reviewers were that sacred to the people of Totania. But F.O.O.D. found themselves at odds with a certain chain, who considered their practices scummy. This was fast-food chain McDales, who already were popular and were simply given negative reviews by F.O.O.D. for that reason alone. Forvan himself even admitted he founded F.O.O.D. to fuel competition against McDales. However, Forvan would later go on to say that the negative review was more than just a disdain for McDales' popularity.
