Food talks! We as Malaysians have one thing in common, one which unites everyone, and that is the FOOD that we love. Another thing would be our smartphones which never leave our side. Introducing the latest upgraded OpenRice mobile application, combining the convenience of technology to locate and read about the latest and greatest food spots in town, or overseas for that matter.

The easiest way to find good food would be to head to the Editor's Picks section. For sure the picks and choices there are better than average. One of the useful feature includes the part where OpenRice partners with restaurants to bring you good deals and promotions. It varies from one deal to the next, including limited time offers, but they're all good. Check out a sample of the current on-going promotions to be found in the app.

Scrolling and tapping your way in the OpenRice app is fairly easy, and once you've found the restaurant you're interested in, there's a function to actually invite your friend to try it too! A new function specially created for this, aptly named the "Meal Invite" function enables you to to choose your day, time, and you may invite your friend to join you! Great food is best taken shared!

Not just useful to find good food locally, OpenRice is a hit overseas as well, with a comprehensive and interactive database overseas as well. When you're travelling to Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Thailand and Singapore, open your OpenRice mobile app, and use it like you normally would. Check out below for the screen showing good food in Taiwan. It's as easy as choosing the country you're in, from the dropdown menu.

You can use the filters to narrow down your choices, from location, down to the type of food you're looking for. So versatile, I can actually look for my favourite cantonese noodle cuisine in Taiwan just by using these filters. So what are you waiting for?
