Discover New Dishes with Helpful Apps

As anyone who is going to have a vacation once or twice in a year, I usually have a careful preparation for this event. I’m looking forward the trip choosing the place where to go, thinking over what to take with me, and planning my everyday activity. I want it to be perfect, without any stress. Just me, my friends, a new place, and a new culture. I am always excited about future trips and finding out something new. Food plays a huge role in getting a good experience from the trip. As a part of the culture, traditional food tells a lot about the people who live there, about local values and it opens the doors to a new world. That is why, planning my trip I always think of places where I might have a meal, read reviews and visit forums to gather the information about the perfect cafe for breakfast before long and eventful day, a cosy coffeehouse with desserts, a splendid restaurant for the farewell dinner. As technology moves forward, and software development companies create more and more useful apps, it is becoming easier, and I would love to share with you those apps that helped me a lot during this process.

Jetzy

The app itself is great for travellers, it connects people letting them share their recommendations and inspiring travel images. And it also rewards its user with pleasant things such as spa vouchers, hotel stay, dinner for two, or even free trips to Tahiti. When you sign in you choose your travelling style and get the options where to go.

Meal Sharing

Where you can taste a real traditional meal if not in the house of local people. Well, with Meal Sharing it is becoming possible. People who tried it usually leave positive reviews and share it with others. So do I. Enjoy the comfort of the local’s home and get the authentic dining experience.

Ness

Ness is your personal advisor in finding new restaurants you will love. With a rating system, you just mark the restaurants you liked and next time you are looking for something it will suggest a place for you. The longer you use it, the better it gets. That is why never forget to rate the place. In addition, you can find there useful reviews of various users, check the menus, Instagram photos, and make a reservation via OpenTable.  

Foodspotting

A visual guide, like Instagram for food, will help orient in all this variety of dishes any restaurant offers. Being a great tool for recommendations, it helps to find dishes your friends found good and share what you liked.   

Chefs Feed

If you are a real connoisseur of the restaurant meals then you probably will be interested in tips from those who are professionals themselves. Chefs Feed shares a professional opinion on favourite dishes of well-regarded chefs in 16 global cities.

Bar Roulette  

The combination of Yelp reviews with Uber will provide you with intriguing and safe night experience. It chooses a top rated bar for you and orders an Uber to take you there not telling you where exactly you are going. A fun app to get acquainted with city’s nightlife.


Get new experience, discover, and learn more about new places and culture through the cuisine. I hope this list of applications will help you to enjoy this process.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
