Hoppit API: Choosing Food Based On Mood

What makes a trip to a restaurant a great experience is not just the fact that they serve delicious food and good wine, but it has a lot to do with the atmosphere and overall 'vibe' of the place. Of course, a 'good vibe' means different things to different people (some like it chilled and some like it loud and bustling), so imagine how cool it would be to be able to browse through dining options based on the exact atmosphere you're looking for. That's what Hoppit is all about; finding restaurants by atmosphere. Hoppit's API provides access to this handy functionality.

Restaurant Ratings By Real Restaurant Goers: MenuMania API

For those who love good food and great dining, a good restaurant guide is key. What would be even better is if that guide could tell you where the restaurant is, what it has on offer and what everybody's saying about it. That's pretty much what MenuMania does; it's a customisable, community-based restaurant guide for discovering new places to eat within New Zealand. MenuMania also provides the MenuMania API, allowing developers to access the database of restaurant information for display on other websites and applications.
