Singapore has long been established as the melting pot of cuisines. From Chinese, to Japanese, Korean, and Mexican cuisine, we have it all.

With this explosion of cuisine variety, many people have taken to social media to review their meals. Which eventually resulted in the birth of the term, “Foodie”.

So if you’re a self-respecting foodie, these are the dining apps that you should have.

Burpple

Burpple is an app started by 3 Singaporeans back in 2012. It connects people who are looking for a place to eat, with restaurants that are recommended by other Burpple users.

Launched in 2012, the app allows users to make reservations at a particular restaurants, as well as leave a review of their meal after.

It is now the food discovery platform of choice in both Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, with over 6 million users.

“What deals are there?”, I hear you ask. Burpple Beyond members will get to enjoy up to 4 choices of 1-for-1 mains or fixed set menus at partner restaurants, bars and cafes.

Upon bill request at the restaurant, members can complete the deal redemption in app to enjoy the 1-for-1 deal.
