Best Vegan Food in the World
That is just one of the questions I want to answer with my recently launched mobile web app Best Food Near Me.
Back in 2005 I had taken a trip to Rome. I can recall I was walking around one night in this beautiful square with a beautiful fountain. I asked a local guide where I could get some really great food. She told me about this great little place that was hidden behind square. I can recall the amazing homemade pasta and this wonderful sauce. This is a place I would definitely recommend to any friends traveling to Rome. My only problem, I can’t remember the name of the place or the dish or exactly where it was in Rome.
So what did I do, I built Best Food Near Me so that you could save all these wonderful food dishes you discovered across the world. When you sign up, every food dish you add gets saved under your profile. If you discover a food dish posted on there by another user, you can add it to your bucklist to try later.
If you find a dish that you try and fall in love with, you can add it to your favorites list. All of these lists are easily accessible under your account.
The app is super simple, and it is only focused on food and drink. Its different than posting food you like on Facebook or Instagram because it does not get lost in your timeline with other posts.
Deciding where to eat and what to eat is still an incredibly hard problem to solve. In New York City alone, there are over 25,000 restaurants to choose from. You could spend days reading reviews, but is that really fun?
Have you ever tried to write a review online, but didn’t know what to say?
This happens to me all the time. If I eat at a new place and love the food. I want to help the restaurant out so they stay in business and continue to cook the amazing food that they do. I just do not have the words to do it. I decided make a better way. No reviews, simply enter the food or drink name, the restaurant name and location, and optional picture of the dish. That to me was way easier than trying to think of what to say in a food review.
For those foodies with a special diet, allergy, or lifestyle, the site let’s you tag the food so others like yourself can find your suggestions. So if you have found an amazing vegan food dish in New York City, other vegans can use the site to see your suggestions.
Here is an example of the Best Vegan Burger in New York that I found while visiting one of the annual food fairs in New York.
When people visit the site and grant access to the device location, a button will appear. Clicking on that button will show all of the dishes others have posted in your surrounding area.
You can also search by a specific city to see all of the dishes that have been added there. The auto suggest values in the search box will only show cities where dishes have been entered.
I built this great tool that can be used by foodies, travelers, chefs, and restaurants. There is one big problem I have not figured out how to solve.
Right now, I only have a few amazing food dishes entered into the app. I need your help entering your favorite dishes.
You might ask, what’s in it for me? We’ll its a network effect. If you share just one single dish, that one dish that is your ultimate favorite, then others share their one favorite dish. Soon you have some great suggestions of places in your area that you would have never known about.
Just think, if your vegan, or have a peanut allergy or are on a macrobiotic diet, you might have trouble finding places to eat out. More trouble than the average person that eats anything. Most restaurant review sites do not mention the best dish, let alone the best vegan dish.
Sure you could always cook at home, but there are times where you just want to relax and have someone else cook for you.
Best Food Near Me will always be free to use. We want to make it easier for you to find amazing food where ever you happen to be in the world. We would love your recommendation for an amazing food dish. Please visit the site and add your favorite dish today.
