Tips / Other

Truly immersing yourself in a foreign culture is one of the main reasons to travel, whether you’re learning a local dance or sipping wine with a vineyard owner in Italy. Traveling outside your comfort zone also involves sampling local cuisine, but if you’re visiting a major city like Rome or Paris, eating like a local usually means stepping far out of the city center, where eateries tend to cater to unadventurous tourists. But finding a worthy eatery can hog hours of your trip time as you pore over listings on TripAdvisor or Yelp.

 

A mobile app called OodyMate is a helpful tool to not only find the best local grub but also to enjoy that grub with a resident. To use the app, travelers log in a request of what they’re looking for in terms of food, plus their travel destination and dates. The app connects them with a nearby local whom they can meet in real life to try out local cuisines. But the app doesn’t just pair you with anyone; it also takes your budget, gender, diet and interests into consideration, finding you the perfect local counterpart with whom to share a delicious and authentic meal. You can even decide in advance who will pay for the meal or whether you’ll split the bill.

 

The app caters to both planners and last-minute decision-makers by allowing users to book a meet-up up to 30 days in advance, but the maximum time to make a request is seven days, with requests expiring when the trip end date has lapsed.
