5 apps every traveling foodie needs

ADVERTISEMENT


For many travelers, their next vacation spot is not just about the scenery, the shopping or the sightseeing. In fact, for many the local cuisine and the food in general is the main focus of their trip. People would actually buy a plane ticket, pay for a hotel room and go through all the ‘burden’ of planning a trip just to go and, we guess, eat. We can totally understand that passion for food and for trying out new things and enticing your taste buds all so very often as we also love the idea of traveling for food. While for many tourists (or even local) going out to a restaurant is just another way to ease their hunger and continue from there, for others it’s really a mission to try out as mush as they can.

What makes one a foodie? We mean, there’s really so much more to being a real foodie than just snapping awesome and Instagram-worthy pictures of your dessert or dinner. It’s actually a deep dedication (and passion) to the colorful culinary world. It seems, though, that these days we are swamped with food and drink-related apps. We don’t know anymore if it’s an app that is all about restaurants and how to find the best one according to your preferences in your area, or whether it’s an app that is about booking the best seats at your favorite place. The choices are endless, the concepts are cool and appetizing, but if you’re looking for specific apps that will match your inner foodie when you travel and make your dining experiences even better, then we’ve rounded up five of the best and most useful apps to help you in that area.

Off the Menu

Every foodie knows that a big part of sharing your dining experiences is about those unique things that happened to you during that time or special dishes you tried that no one else would even dare to try. Well, with Off The Menu you will get to see secret menus and special items that restaurants wouldn’t necessarily offer its guests. With this app you will get a ticket to the backdoor of every important kitchen across the U.S and Canada and will get to try out new things like no one else. This is your way to stay hip and trendy in the restaurant world.

Happy Cow

Being a vegetarian or a  vegan these days does not mean that your options are limited. On the contrary, it seems like there are more and more veggie restaurants rising and with the help of Happy Cow, you can now find them easily around the world. The main purpose of the app’s founders was to make healthy food more accessible and easy to find.

Roaming Hunger

Now this app is one of the coolest food-related apps we have ever seen around. The Roaming Hunger really combines one of the biggest trends in the culinary world these days and that is the wheeling trend of food trucks. With this app you will be able to locate the closest food trucks in your area. There is something so neat about food tricks and their concept that some places are actually worth traveling for just for their mobile food stations.

Foodspotting

Foodspotting couldn’t be more specific as it’s not about the restaurants, it’s actually about the dishes. Sure, these two go hand in hand, but the app focuses on specific dishes and their visuality rather than the quality of the service. By using the app, foodspotters can share pictures of their meals with other users and recommend about these dishes. It’s like sightseeing, but just about food.

No Wait

Every professional foodie knows how hard it gets to try and score a table at a popular restaurant. In fact, there is nothing more disappointing than to travel to a place just to realize you can’t find a spot at a restaurant you’ve been dying to dine in. With NoWait, you will place yourself on the waiting list from pretty much anywhere. Users will be able to see real-time wait times that will save them a lot of time and energy.

‘Jersey Shore’ Star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s Troubled Baby Mama Explains Exactly What She Needs To Get Out Of His Life

Just days after Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and his girlfriend Jen Harley announced that they were happier and more in love than ever, the two got into a vicious social media war with Instagram stories. And, it all started when Ortiz-Magro accused Harley of neglecting her kids, so she could go out and drink.

In a series of now-deleted posts, Ortiz-Magro accused Harley of leaving her 12-year-old son home alone while she went out partying with friends.

“Left 12yr old son alone while she went to drink” read an Ortiz-Magro snap taken at 6:38 am on October 21st. “This is why i had the baby bc she wasn’t home at 630 am and her son alone until 930 am.”

It wasn’t long before Harley started firing back, writing that her daughter was screaming and crying under Ortiz-Magro’s care, and she was scared because she never cries like that.  “I’m so heartbroken,” wrote Hartley.

According to Radar Online, it was at this point that the feud started to escalate. They brought up their fight on Jersey Shore when Harley made a scene and stormed off after a night of drinking with Ortiz-Magro and the rest of the cast. And, Harley accused her boyfriend of never wanting her to be part of the group.

All of this played out on the most recent episode of Jersey Shore. They were all enjoying a night out at Harrah’s in Vegas to see DJ Pauly D, but a hotel rep showed up to let Harley know the property had banned her. But, Ortiz-Magro convinced the rep that everything would be calm, and they allowed her to remain on the premises. She ended up getting drunk and fighting with Ortiz-Magro before ditching him and the rest of the cast.

Back to their social media feud, Harley also asked via text (Ortiz-Magro posted screenshots) for the reality star to give her $ 20,000 so she would leave him alone.

“Pull out 20K, and I’ll go,” wrote Harley.

After accusing his girlfriend of giving him a black eye, Ortiz-Magro then posted a creepy video (which he has since deleted) where fans could hear harsh sounds inside his home. In the caption, he wrote that the sounds were of an assault with a weapon and hands. He added the hashtags #BatteredMen, #MenLivesMatter, and #AbuseOrNah.”

Harley and Ortiz-Magro have tried to make their relationship work after the birth of their daughter in April. But, even with counseling and anger management classes, they still can’t seem to get along. She even claimed on Instagram that Ronnie Ortiz-Magro took their daughter a few days ago and has refused to give her back.

New episodes of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation air Thursday nights on MTV.
