Eat Your World (http://eatyourworld.com), a global guide to local food and drink, has launched a newly designed mobile-optimized site to grant users an improved on-the-go experience. Besides the ability to search the website’s database of regional, traditional, and iconic dishes and drinks from 125-plus destinations around the world, users can now enable GPS to “Find Local Foods Near Me.” Those signed in to Eat Your World can also upload photos of their own food finds directly to the mobile site from their smartphones.

The GPS sources from the hundreds of featured food and drink entries penned by Eat Your World staff as well as thousands of contributions from site users, all of which have been vetted by Eat Your World to ensure they fit the website’s criteria of being true local food. The resulting spread of quintessential eats—a mix of iconic traditional dishes, must-try neighborhood gems, local breweries, and farm-to-table favorites—helps answer the foodie-traveler’s burning question: What must I eat here than I cannot eat elsewhere?

“The new, simplified mobile site makes it incredibly easy for travelers to locate the best local foods near them, whether they’re in New York, Amsterdam, Detroit, or Dakar,” says Eat Your World co-founder Laura Siciliano-Rosen. “Moreover, our users can now contribute content to Eat Your World seamlessly from their mobile devices, something that they’ve requested of us many times in the past.”

In addition to the website’s vivid photography and extensively researched “What to Eat” editorial content, other content readily available on the mobile site includes How to Burn It Off (activity tips) and Where to Stay (hotel suggestions), all of which are linked to Google Maps for easy locating, and the EYW Blog, covering food and travel topics from Cape Cod to Cambodia.

“It’s the same great content repackaged for the mobile user,” says Eat Your World co-founder Scott Rosen. “We’ve just put it all at the fingertips of anybody with a smartphone.”
