  1. Hello Wendy,

    I hope you’re having a great week! Apologies for the long comment, I couldn’t find your email!

    My name is Lee, and I’m the Community Engagement Lead for Zomato in Portland. Zomato is a popular online and mobile restaurant discovery platform and social food network with a presence in 22 countries and over 500 cities!
    I came across your blog LocavOregon and I would love to meet for a coffee to discuss the Portland food scene and some of the blogger features we offer on Zomato!

    Since we’re very different from other restaurant discovery platforms, I wanted to share a few key points that I think differentiate us.

    We physically collect information from every single restaurant/cafe/bar in town (menus, photos, pricing, hours, etc) and ensure this information remains up to date. Always!
    Our users, better known as “foodies”, have the unique opportunity to interact on our platform. Foodies can rate and review restaurants, upload photos, follow other foodies, and create a trusted network of people whose opinions they value, all of which is based around one common interest and love…Food!
    You can also like reviews and photos of other foodies, connect your Instagram/Twitter/Facebook account(s), check-in at restaurants, tag friends, and essentially use Zomato as your own personal social food network!

    We’d love for you to be a part of our Zomato Portland community! I look forward to hearing from you soon!
