New App Helps Foodies on Their Culinary Quests
By Tin Htet Paing 14 January 2016
RANGOON — Fresh out of ideas for Rangoon eateries? Don’t worry, there’s an app for that.
“Foodie Myanmar” lists some 700 restaurants in Rangoon, complete with location, menu, specialties and average prices. Bet you didn’t even know there were 700 restaurants here.
The free app was created by local tech startup Motive Drive, and launched last December. Android users can download it at the Google Play Store, but iOS users will have to wait until next month.
Eateries are searchable by cuisine, type of venue, township or GPS location. It can also be used as a social platform, where food-lovers can connect with each other and share their experiences, photos and ratings. The app also offers a food diary, so users can keep track of their culinary adventures.
Foodie Myanmar will also keep you updated about special events at restaurants, promotions and food fairs. Tips on Burma’s favorite street-side snacks will come later, as will info about flavorful finds in other cities throughout the country.
