The site is quite easy to navigate in that all you have to do is look for the city that you’re headed to and check out what are some of the recommendations there. Since we know our home country a little more, let’s find out where the guide highlights as some of the recommended food places in Singapore…

Once you click on Newton Food Centre for instance, Expedia will let you know essential information such as its location, opening hours and average prices there.

After navigating through the website, we discovered several pros and cons…

Pros

1. It is a one stop site where one can go to see all the food recommendations in Asia. This will be a convenient first stop to check out before travellers head to a new destination.

2. Essential information such as location, opening hours and prices are presented so travellers can quickly decide if that’s a venue that they can/should be headed to.

Cons

1. Obviously at this point in time, choices are still relatively limited. Major cities such as Beijing and Tokyo are noticeably missing from the site.

2. More details could be added to illustrate what is recommended at the location. For instance, sambal stingray or fried hokkien noodles could be highlighted as part of the receommendations at Newton Food Centre

Nonetheless, this is a great start and perhaps in the future, foodie travellers would start to use the guide as an essential part of their travels! Could this also spell the end of the relevance of food blogs? Hm…
