5 more Awesome iPhone Apps for International Cuisines

Here are 5 more iPhone Apps on top of the previous 5 Apps for those of you into international cuisines:

1. Yum Cha Dim Sum

Those push carts with the steaming bamboo baskets are such a beautiful sight and smell. But when that cart comes by with the mile-high stack of steamers, the lids come off and it can be hard to know what exactly you’re looking at. The Yum Cha Dim Sum app is a great dim sum decoder, and even provides color photos, calorie counts and key ingredients for a variety of dim sum fare.

Cost: $2.99

2. Sushipedia

Sushi is so commonplace now (please refer to earlier drive-thru reference), but with myriad raw fish options such as hamachi, kanpachi and mebachi, not to mention the numerous maki sushi options, you begin to realize that sushi goes far beyond California rolls. Sushipedia is a great app that provides color photography of sushi varieties, descriptions and even fun facts –- and it’s free.

Cost: Free

3. GlobeTipping

For those fortunate enough to travel internationally and experience these cuisines in their native countries, it is important to know how to tip appropriately, since each region is different. Did you know that tipping is not the norm in restaurants in Indonesia and is even considered an insult in China and Japan? Now you do. The GlobeTipping app is a must-have app for any world traveler.

Cost: $0.99

4. Korean Cuisine

Korean food has grown in popularity, thanks in part to celebrity chefs like Bobby Flay who make bulgogi (marinated, grilled beef) and side dishes like kimchi (pickled cabbage) on the Food Network. Like all world cuisines however, it goes far beyond the two or three dishes it is best known for. With some similarities to Chinese and Japanese food, but still quite different, Korean food is still a mystery to many. With this free Korean cuisine app, users can learn more about the ingredients in 52 different dishes, how to make them, and how to eat them.

Cost: Free

5. FoodFinder

What are you in the mood for tonight? Cambodian, Ethiopian or how about some Peruvian? Whatever your palate fancies can be located with the FoodFinder app. It provides an A through Z listing of foods from every country you can imagine, and then maps the restaurant nearest you via Google. FoodFinder also provides phone numbers for each restaurant so you can place and order or reservation directly from the app.
