A good meal is always desired but often hard to find when traveling to a new city or destination. Tourist traps can lure you in with the promise of a 5-star meal and leave you only with the corresponding bill. Thanks to a host of new apps, it is now possible to find great restaurants even when you are not familiar with the area.
Here are three of our favorite travel food apps:
This app and website has just been redesigned to make it even more user friendly from its initial release. The premise is a review site similar to Yelp but with a twist… only local chefs who rank highly in their area can add content to the site. You can even find out which dishes are trending locally without having to follow food bloggers and you can find restaurants within walking distances of your location. While these expert reviews are currently limited to the USA, Canada and London there are plans to expand to many more cities and countries in the coming months.
Viator gives you food and drink itineraries from all over the world, many with special deals and promotions for the users of the app. The app allows you to book directly from your phone and can recommend restaurants based on hotel location with interactive maps.
This app is part of the popular restaurant payment platform, Dash, and allows you to explore the atmosphere of participating restaurants before committing to a meal there. Real time data tells you how crowded the venue is and its integration with Dash makes bill splitting easy.
A great dining experience in and exotic destination can make the difference between a good trip and an amazing trip. Unfortunately, planning your meals can often be left to the last minute with little research going into the decision. These three apps make it easy for you to make the most of your trip with ease.
