Pick a
restaurant

Yelp and Aloqa are
great for user-generated restaurant reviews, but one of the best sources
remains Zagat to Go. The service displays a map with your location and icons
indicating nearby restaurants (as well as hotels, nightlife, and shopping) for
60 U.S. cities and 30 international cities, including Paris and London. Click on the icon and you’ll get the full review, along with the average price of
a meal and Zagat’s numeric ratings for food, service, and décor. You can also
search using filters, such as “open late” or “trendy.”

Cost: $9.99.

Runs On: Android, BlackBerry, iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch, Palm, Symbian.

Runners-up: Michelin Guides ($18.99; iPhone), OpenTable (free; Android,
BlackBerry, iPhone, Palm, Windows Mobile), Urban Spoon (free; Android, iPad,
iPhone/iPod Touch).

Eat at a food
truck

While the
food-truck trend means great meals on the go, tracking down the actual vehicles
can be difficult. Enter RoadStoves, which gives you an up-to-the-minute list of
the nearest gourmet food trucks—along with directions to wherever they happen
to be located. The service is currently available in Los Angeles and coming to
more cities soon.

Cost: $0.99.

Runs On: iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch.
