As the restaurant guide war heats up, WOM (Word Of Mouth) boasts that its new foodie digest is now bigger than ever. Literally. Co-founder Samanta Pong said that while the original idea was to make a pocket-sized guide, customers told her bigger was better. So the fourth edition of the survey-based book, to be released tomorrow at IFC Mall's new Bookazine shop, is 'bigger and wider'. 'A lot of people use the book. I hate to call them the older generation, but some folk are still not too tech-savvy so they're not going to log on to our website but they will buy the book.' In addition, Pong - with partner in dining Fergus Fung - is currently revamping the website. It's all about staying fresh and appetising, given the sudden glut of gastronomic guides such as the Michelin, Miele and Zagat, now booking Hong Kong tables. However, Pong isn't too worried. 'I'm a fan of the Zagat,' she says. 'I used them when I lived in the States. The Michelin is Europe-based so I will use them there. But the one in Hong Kong, looking at the panel of judges, it's difficult for them to give a fair account of local Chinese restaurants. I don't think they're as good as the WOM Guide. But it's healthy for Hong Kong to be considered. It's competition for us, but it does put Hong Kong on the map.'
