Dining out simply isnât the same anymore compared a few decades ago. Now that technology in the form of handheld devices have become more than for telecommunication and entertainment, you can be able to make use of your own to enhance your gastronomic adventures.
This digital age has initiated a shift in power from restaurants to the customers they serve. These days, you must be served the way you most desire or else your more than a thousand friends in social media will know how crappy the service of that restaurant is (even if itâs just made up).

Take a look at these apps that can help you love dining out even more.
