0 My City Cuisine Review

Hi everyone!
I was approached by MyCityCuisine to try it and write a blog post about it, so I'd like to share it with all of you. 

MyCityCuisine.org is a Wiki project dedicated to helping answer the question 'What Should I Order?' when you travel to various cities. The project's goal is to help travelers discover local foods from all over the world, and MyCityCuisine aims to become a comprehensive source for this information.

People can contribute to MyCityCuisine in the following ways:
  • Write a new dish description
  • Expand an existing dish description
  • Correct mistakes in an existing dish description
  • Suggest a new dish to be included
  • Upload a new dish photo
This site is for those interested in tasting local food, not for someone looking to cook it at home, so recipes aren't required. Visit MyCityCuisine.org to add a dish from your city.

Currently they are looking mostly for people to contribute photos and descriptions of local dishes to the site. Here is a link to our page that describes what we're looking for in a bit more depth.

After using the Wiki project a bit, it was evident that it is not a place to mention restaurants, as the primary focus of MyCityCuisine is the local dishes. According to the creators, the aim is to be general enough that you could take the information and use it whatever restaurant you decide to visit in a particular city.

For those interested in trying, here is a brief summary of how to contribute:

To start adding to a page, you first need to create an account. You can do this by clicking on the Log on/Create account link at the top right-hand side of the site. Once you have an account, you can search for a city using the search bar on the left side of the page and can then click the Edit tab at the top of the page and go to town. If you are unfamiliar with adding pages to a wiki, you can use the submission form here.

Feel free to try it out, and share with others as this project has recently started up!
