Yelp is awesome! It obviously ranks first when it comes to finding almost everything – not just restaurants, pubs and pizza outlets! In fact, Yelp is so famous that Siri on iPhone 4S gets you listings and reviews fetched from Yelp when you ask it about that italian shop you want to try, or some pizza outlet you want to know about!
Almost every know who’s been using iPhone knows Yelp – and it is obvious that we put it at the top spot. If by any chance you haven’t tried it yet – that’s a very rare case, right? – we ask you to do that immediately. Yelp gets you not just the address and rating for a particular restaurant or pub you are looking for, but also shows suggestions when you just want to search for some shop/outlet, and gets you local reviews and more details.
Now this is one app you’ll love like crazy if you haven’t already heard about it. OpenTable is one-stop-app for pre-booking seats in nearby restaurants even before going there – and at the comfort of your house.

Roll that all into one app – and you get Foodstream – one of its kind. If you got information on Yelp and booked seats on Epicurious, all that was fine. But getting time-sensitive information like offers and deals is Foodstream’s specialty. That’s why it’s a popular app amongst foodies. It helps you save money too.
Vegetarianism is very good. And if you’re vegan and would like to eat out – here’s an app for that too. This is an app which pulls listings of all vegetarian restaurants nearby you. It’s free too.
One good thing about Vegman app for iPhone is that it also shows if the restaurant is just vegetarian or pure vegan. This is an app that would fit vegans perfectly well – and would also come in very handy if you need to get to get some vegetarian dining for the evening. It’s an app in progress – so more restaurants are being added every day.
Thousands of bloggers, thousands of recipes – but above all, thousands of mouth-watering photos of very delicious foods. All you have to do is, choose whichever photo looks delicious enough to vet your appetite and then just find out how to do it by clicking it! It just can’t more graphic – or more delicious.
Foodgawker is what makes you gawk at photos of foods and lets you know the exact recipe – so that you can make it on your own right away and enjoy some awesome delicious food.

9. Cor.kz Wine App
So after all that food, wouldn’t it be time for some wine to top it off with?
Cor.kz Wine app comes with something like a database of 1,000,000 wines and even more reviews.
