With so many bars, restaurants, and delivery services on offer in Hong Kong, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when it comes to choosing one. Luckily, there are a plethora of food and drink-related mobile apps that can help us out. Whatever the occasion, these trusty apps offer plenty of options with just a few taps on the phone.

Before you place your order, be sure to make a note of any food allergies for the restaurant to be aware of, as well as delivery instructions for the riders.

The Gulu

Instead of waiting for hours queuing up at a restaurant, get your phone to do it for you! The Gulu app allows you to remotely get yourself a queuing ticket with real-time queuing status, and push notifications to remind you when it’s almost time for your ticket to be called. You can even see restaurant menus and place your meal orders in advance. So you can use the app to get a ticket while you’re still at home, and have your table and food ready for you as soon as you arrive. Brilliant. Download for free on the App Store or Google Play.

If you’re like us, you’ve found yourself browsing the wine list at the restaurant, or staring and the wine isle at the supermarket for long painful minutes, with absolutely no idea what to pick. With Vivino, you can scan any wine bottle label, or enter its name in the search function to learn about the wine’s origin, value, taste characteristics, and aromas! What’s more, you can read reviews, save bottles you loved or want to try in “My Wines,” and get delivered directly through the app. Download for free on the App Store or Google Play.
