Users can keep track of their food and dining experiences with greater ease
You may have noticed some changes when you logged in to your Menuism.com account recently, right? Brighter colors, a few buttons in different places? We’re really excited about this redesign – but not because of the colors changes! We actually did this redesign so that users, like you, can keep track and recall your dining experiences more easily.
Obviously you already know that Menuism.com is the largest compilation of menus on the web and that we are more detailed than other restaurant sites – especially since we encourage you to rate and review both the restaurant and the specific dishes that you ate. Now, however, we are taking this to a new level with a new “dining journal” feature.
A dining journal? What’s that?
So glad you asked! The dining journal emulates a Roladex filled with restaurant business cards. The idea is that when you have a business card, you would write short notes on it, like ‘Ask for Bob’ or ‘Delicious lasagna!’ But with Menuism.com’s new design, you can write as much as you want and always refer back to your notes and photos when you want to remember what you thought about that restaurant.
And now all of your reviews and photos will be in this one online “dining journal.” You can search the journal to find all past reviews of one particular restaurant by searching for that restaurant, but you can also search based on cuisine, tag, or description. If you’re looking for Chinese food one night, search “Chinese” and all of the restaurants you reviewed that are tagged “Chinese” will come up in your search.
Because of this new design and simple search feature, you’ll never forget what you thought of a particular restaurant – and particular menu items. Plus your reviews will now appear at the top of each restaurant’s page, making it much easier for you to recall your experiences. You’ll be able to use your reviews for your own benefit!
We really want you to be able to use Menuism.com as a one-stop shop for all things restaurant-related. And we are really excited about our redesign! We hope you like it as much as we do.
