Take your excitement for trying new places and combine it with your love of food porn, and you, dear friend, have just created Foodspotting.

Foodspotting is a free app that allows users to share photos and short reviews of their favorite dishes at nearby restaurants. With Foodspotting, you cans search for menu items based on your neighborhood, a type of food, or simply the favorite dishes of other people you follow on social media.

It's not a forum for bashing servers or sharing your conspiracy thoughts on corporate chains. It's simply a photo-friendly guide to only the best dishes at restaurants in your area. Think Instagram but with directions.
