Chancing upon good food while traveling is mostly a hit-or-miss, but technology can help make finding the best restaurants in your area better.
Here are 4 practical tips you can do:
Look Around Online
It’s easy to check out what the best restaurants are in your location using the internet. Your smartphone can connect to a cellular network, and there’s Google as well.
To complete an online search, just type in ‘best restaurants in Accra’, for example and click on the first or second link. You’ll get a good idea of which ones are highly rated and the menu they offer.
Check the Online Review
When you have a restaurant you fancy, go ahead and check what people are saying about it.
Online reviews are very useful since the customers there have already laid out the groundwork for you. They will tell you what they like, e.g., the ambiance, menu selection, wine, service, etc. and what they didn’t like.
You can also sort by stars- the more stars the higher the likelihood that you’ll enjoy dining there.
Get Some Coupons
Coupons can make your dining experience more affordable and allow you to sample more food. It’s easy to get online coupons for most of Accra’s top hangouts, for example. There are many websites that offer deals in a daily basis, so you can check it out anytime.
Make sure to see how you can get the coupon for a particular restaurant. Some will require you to print them out, so have it ready as you arrive.
Again, your smartphone will be your best friend here. Open Apple Maps or Google Maps, or something similar and enter the restaurant’s address. Then, depending on the mode of travel, follow the directions and you should arrive to your destination without too much trouble.
