Introduction

Eatoutzone is about eating out. It provides a highly interactive online platform for the Restaurants and its customers. It has a searchable data base of restaurants of Indian origin located across the world. Visitors to the site can brows for detailed information on any listed restaurant. They can Rate as well as Read and Write reviews on a restaurant. Owners can register their restaurant online. They can also edit the information of their restaurant displayed on the site. All these services are absolutely FREE.

Most web sites dealing with the subject invariably provide details of the top end establishments only. This is fine as long as you are looking out for an eating place for that special occasion or on a short visit to the city. Every city worth its name has a plethora of eating places serving delicious food at reasonable prices. At times, even the natives may not be aware of the existence of such places. Eatoutzone has not only made it easy but also highly affordable to for every restaurant to be online. A restaurant can register online and display all the details about itself through a dedicated individual page, free of cost. Our readers will also be privy to detailed information on these eateries though special articles posted on this site from time to time.

Eating out on special occasions has acquired the status of a ritual among the advanced societies. What started as a business of feeding the traveler or an alternative to cooking at home has taken a rather complex shape. Where you eat is often more important than what you eat. A restaurant, sans a review by an authentic critic, is seldom patronized by the men who matter.

An example: A friend of mine, taken in by recommendation in a travel magazine, took me to a restaurant in Goa. It turned out to be a seaside shack made of a thatched roof over a low brick wall. Furniture consisted of tables and benches, crudely made from discarded packing wood. Menu was scribbled with chalk on a worn out wooden board, originally painted black, hung on one of the bamboo pillars supporting the roof. Every bite of the food needed the helping of some liquid to push it down the throat. That’s how my friend tackled her dinner while I enjoyed a warm beer direct from the bottle. It was a place I would eat in after going hungry for not less than a month. Thanks to the Lonely Planet, every table was occupied by the elite tourists and creatures of lower biological order.

Food
  • It divides humanity into the largest number of groups
  • It is the oldest and basic occupation of all living things.
  • Plants, probably, must have started moving in search of food and become animals.
  • Even to this day, people die of starvation in some parts of the world.
  • The rich eat when they want and the poor eat when they can.
  • Man has come a long way from plucking fruits from the trees in jungles and eating to satisfy his hunger. We have GM (genetically modified) foods today. Faster growing plants, higher yielding crops, seedless fruits, larger sized vegetables, low fat milk and the list is endless. Japanese have gone to the extent of growing the watermelons into cubic shape to facilitate efficient transportation of the same. Advice on how not to eat enough has a fashionable name called Dieting. Know more about it while you are at it. Eatoutzone will bring interesting facts on food to you through “food trivia”, a page dedicated to this subject.

    Drinks
    Noting lives where there is nothing to dirk. At least, that is what our scientists tell us, as of today. According them, planets with no water are not likely to support life. But then we are not talking of water here. Luckily, we have more than water to drink on our planet. We have poured them all into “beverages”. As you must have rightly guessed, we have sub-classified them into Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic. With time, we will be further sub-classifying them. Click on “beverages” to know more about wines and whiskies.

    Cuisines
    Countries, and often regions within the countries, take pride in offering distinct ways of cooking their dishes, albeit with similar ingredients. They take great care to train their chefs to recreate the traditional tastes. Connoisseurs not only appreciate but are often fussy about the delicate difference between regions. Eatoutzone carries a vast variety of cuisines of the world, more will be added in due course of time. It is a gargantuan task, please bear with us.

    Food Variety
    While Cuisines associates foods to certain cultures and regions, a link from Food Articles titles Food LIst takes you to a detailed description of various dishes popularly known across the world. Recipes are deliberately avoided as there are umpteen number of resources already dedicated to it on the web.

    Etiquettes
    If man has perfected one thing, it is the art of complicating simple tasks in life. In the name of culture and etiquettes, the act of eating and drinking has been refined into an art. Apart from a general article on etiquette, some foods and drinks discussed in this site will have a note on specific ways of serving and consuming them. What is considered as good manners in one culture can be highly offensive in another. Next time you are visiting a strange land, it will help to know some of their etiquettes beforehand.

    Customs
    Most societies, due to religious, social or traditional reasons, have certain self imposed customs and rituals when it comes to eating. One’s custom may be in conflict with another’s. Unless it causes severe trauma, it is better to do in Rome as Romans do. It may some times be better to totally avoid such eating experiences. After all, the phrase “can’t be swallowed” didn’t drop from the sky.
