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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
