Food on Call – Reloaded

I was browsing through the archives of KMB and this post caught my eye. Misha ceated a database of restaurants which offer takeaway or delivery services here in Karachi. It was a good idea. Sadly, since it was a)very early b)required her (sorry abt that misha) to update the list manually, it quickly went out of notice. I thought i would revive it and add a little dynamism to it. After the huge success of Wikimapia, this would be a good ground for another collaborative effort. Below is a summary of places already entered. Use the form provided below to enter any place you know about. (Open the complete entry to access the form).

Note: This database is for places which offer delivery or takeaway only. Another resource on dining out places in karachi is here.

    Hey Mansoor.
    How about adding the link to the view of the location of each Restuarant from Wikimapia. that will be a wonderful add-in. That will be a good application for take-away food.

    For instance;

    Hot and Spicy http://wikimapia.org/#y=24813711&x=67049236&z=18&l=0&m=a

    Brilliant idea! how about giving it an easy-to-remember URL of its own and adding it to the Pakistani website directories?

    Great idea!!

    Do we have tiffinwalas presence in Karachi as par with
    Mumbai?

    Here is a shorter link…

    http://karachifooddelivery.here.ws/

    Feel free to distribute it whereever you like.

    Mansoor Nice application. Please add one more field.. “Coverage Areas” these delivery services only serve selected areas.


  12. SWA (unregistered) on July 25th, 2006 @ 11:24 pm

    @ Mariam: I think Karachi’s culture is a bit different than Mumbai. Everybody mostly eats out instead of having tiffinwalas bring them lunch from home.
