Traveling for work is something that’s becoming increasingly common. Whether you’re a proven work ‘road warrior’ or packing up for your first business trip, there’s one question everyone has when traveling – where do you go to eat?
If you’re staying at Radisson RED, obviously your first choice would be our amazing OUIBar + KTCHN; but we understand sometimes you want to shake things up a bit. Fast food, fast casual, fine dining…where do you even begin when narrowing down your choices? Especially when you’re in a city you’re not familiar with.
Don’t worry fearless foodie, just keep scrolling to read some of our favorite apps that’ll help you keep your belly full, and your mind firing on all cylinders when traveling for work.
We all eat with our eyes first, so it’s no wonder that there’s an app that lets you check out user-uploaded photos of restaurant’s menu items. Eaten is perfect for locals and travelers alike who want to know what tasty treats they’re in for before they even step foot through the door. Find and share hidden gems, keep a record of your foodie finds and view them on your ‘Eaten Map,’ or search for the best places near you. Available on iOS and Android, this app is a useful addition to any foodie phone.
Find a restaurant, book it and get loyalty points (they call them Yums) all from your smartphone. TheFork has over 40,000 restaurants in major cities all over the world, so it’s perfect for those who travel and eat out a lot for work. Big discounts + full bellies = happy workers. So open up your App Store or Google Play and get to downloading.
Need to get food delivered when you’re traveling for work? Zomato’s got you covered! Search for restaurants to eat out at or order in from. Browse through restaurant menus, photos, user reviews and ratings to decide where you want to eat. This app is perfect for business travelers that are short on time, but still have big appetites. Available on iOS and Android, so everybody’s happy.
Not a food app per say, but a really handy way to keep all your favorite places stored on your phone for when work takes you to the same destination more than once. Mapstr works everywhere in the world, and helps you save and share your favorite finds with colleagues or friends (restaurants, bars, etc). Or try the ones you didn’t get a chance to visit last time!
Foodie – Camera for Life
Alright, this may not be an app for finding food, but we couldn’t leave it off our list. What’s better than getting delicious food made for you? Well, nothing really…but taking an amazing photo of it comes pretty close. Foodie – Camera for Life is a must for those who love to share photos of their food almost as much they love eating it. With 30 filters, smart guides for taking top-down photos and a timer to make sure you get that perfect shot, this app will take your foodie pics to the next level!
Don’t forget, you can download the Radisson RED app and use our ‘Grab & Go’ feature that lets you automatically order from our OUIBar + KITCHN direct from your smartphone. Pretty cool right?

It may be a bit further out from the city center of Cape Town, but the South African Cheese Festival (April 26 -28) has been going on for 18 years and has everything from cheese carving competitions to live music and, of course, cheese tasting. Or, if you want a proper shisa nyama (South African barbeque) experience, there’s no better than Mzoli’s. Buy your meat from the attached butchery, then hand it over to be cooked for you. No plates or cutlery here though, so make sure your hands are clean…Finish off your foodie adventures in the ‘Mother City’ with a stay at the Radisson RED, Cape Town.
