If you love eating or preparing gourmet meals, then it’s not so easy to find restaurants or recipes that align with your exquisite taste. Luckily, there is a convenient solution nowadays in the form of apps. Realistically speaking whenever you need something there is probably an app for it, and gourmet food is not any different in that aspect. Here we will go over some of the top picks for apps that either help you prepare food or tell you where to eat, whether you are home or in a foreign country,
Yelp is probably the most popular app on this list, and you use it to find out the quality of food you can expect in a particular restaurant. The good thing about Yelp is that it covers a massive directory of restaurants all over the world, so regardless of where you are, chances are you will find restaurant reviews for that location. The bad thing about Yelp is that it is not 100% reliable, since anyone can leave a bad review out of sheer spite, or someone can pay or treat the reviewers to boost their score. In other words, whatever you read, take it with a grain of salt.
Yummly is like a search engine specifically tailored for food recipes. You might think that you can use any search engine to find recipes online, but Yummly comes with a fantastic advantage. Your search results are way more personalized than with regular SE. You make inputs like what kind of diet you are on, or if you are allergic to a particular food group, and Yummly will apply that information as a filter to the search. This way you find recipes that are ideally suited for your lifestyle right from the get-go.
This is a travel app that can list out all of the restaurants in the area based on their rankings. So it is an excellent app to have if you are traveling and do not want to miss out on the best places to eat. As you can see, it is similar to Yelp, but it seems that TripAdvisor has a higher rate of trustworthiness than Yelp. So, maybe the best practice is to have both apps and compare results. If both Yelp and TripAdvisor are pointing to a stellar review for a restaurant, chances are you won’t be disappointed.
Tasty is an excellent app to help you cook. It contains an extensive database of recipes, step by step instructions, and it keeps your phone screen on while it guides your cooking process. Moreover, you can also personalize your recipe feed so that it filters out the food you are not interested in seeing.
