Mamakoo is a food travel app.

Our founder traveled solo around the world for over a year. After falling into tourist traps and missing out on the must-try dishes and restaurants, she has joined forces with local foodies and industry experts to create a reliable go-to guide for discerning diners who want to take their trips to the next level.

What to eat in NYC besides pizza and steak?
What other Korean food besides Korean BBQ?
What if I don’t know what I want?

With Mamakoo’s curated guides, you know what to get (ex. regional specialties) and where to get it (ex. local favorite restaurants like hidden gems off the eaten path). Join the global community of Mamakoo Insiders for genuine recommendations and stay up-to-date on the food scene.

Easy to see what’s the best local food

I’m a New Yorker who love NYC local food and enjoy to discover the great restaurants. This app is good for someone who like to know the best local food not just whatever restaurants from the advertising. The app design is so cute and easy to see and I like the part that I can read the history/ background of the food. This app still seems new and not many listings are showing yet but I feel like this can be reliable app for who wants to find real / good / local / hidden restaurants.

Clean and Sleek! A must for Foodies!

Moving beyond Yelp reviews, this app is dedicated to foodies and folks who are looking for reliable recommendations to eateries in metropolitan areas.

The app is easy to use: select a city and you’re offered a list of places to eat and notable dishes that are part of the local cuisine.

If you don’t see one of your favorite spots, simply type it up. Once it appears, hit the ❤️ icon and your stamp of approval is given! Future versions should include the ability to manually input restaurant information, especially if the spot is off the beaten path.

Thoroughly enjoying this app and looking forward to contributing to its growth!
