and Android smartphones and tablets. I’ve been wanting to convert our restaurant guidebook into an app for years, and I’m grateful to Yacine Merzouk for making that dream come true!
Just like the book, the app includes mini-profiles of chefs and restaurant owners and their food. Filters enable users to search by location as well as for breakfast, lunch, dinner, price range, dress code, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, my favorite dining spots, and more. “How to use this app” offers an overview; how restaurants are chosen; and definitions of useful icons. A map shows nearby restaurants that are listed in our guidebook and a “more” tab includes a Hawaiian food glossary and an introduction to the Hawaiian language.
Flexibility in revising apps enable us to make updates faster than we can with print and ebook versions. So if you download the app, expect free updates every month.
An you may already know, I highlight those who are dedicated to real Kauai cuisine — from food trucks to the fine dining. I have a passion for sustainable agriculture and applaud those who make the effort to source fresh, locally grown food and prepare meals from scratch.
I’m really excited about this. There is so much great food on Kauai and I’m thrilled that it’s now digitally accessible. I find myself using it all the time. It’s instant gratification because it’s always current and filters make it extremely easy to find what I’m looking for, and I wrote the book!
The app can be downloaded at for $9.99, or by searching for “Tasting Kauai” in the App Store. As usual, a portion of all proceeds are donated to the Hawaii Foodbank, Kauai Branch.
