With so many food spots in Manila, local foodies depend on news sites and apps for the best recommendations. One of their trusted apps is restaurant aggregator Zomato.

“Goodbye Metro Manila,” its website presents. “It has been a great run but we have, sadly, stopped our operations here! You can still explore dine-in restaurants and order amazing food on Zomato in India and UAE.”

Known before as FoodieBay, Zomato was launched in India in 2008. Since then, it has been used to connect diners to restaurants and delivery services. As it became a hotspot of hidden gems in the food industry, Zomato made its way to the Philippines, giving Filipinos access to “read and write customer-generated reviews and view and upload photos, order food delivery, book a table and make payments while dining out at restaurants.”
