Travel Topics
Almost all online travel agencies and travel guides, both online and in print, have a section on restaurants.  Wikipedia has a nice article on restaurants and fast food. Here are some good sources for U.S. and worldwide restaurant information. Sometimes, the easiest way to find a restaurant is just to do a search with the name of the city and the type of restaurant you are looking for (e.g., McDonald's Tallinn Estonia, Rome cheap eats, Paris best restaurants).
We take you to the Amazon Travel - Dining Book section with results for the above search words or directly to one of the books shown.
Once there, to find restaurant guides for a specific country or city, use their search box on the page as follows
  • If you want to use the guide series shown just add the Country or City name to the search words already there and click Go.
  • If you want to find all restaurant guides, just replace the search words with the name of a Country or City name + Restaurant Guides. (e.g. Rome Restaurant Guides)
  • To find a pocket menu reader for a specific language just add the language name to the search words already there.
