Download an app, get a free beer. I can hear the stampede already.
A new local restaurant guide, buUuk, comes with an e-coupon for free beer at BQ Bar. There are two catches. The first is that you can only use the coupon once. The second is that you have to use the coupon before it expires, and it is currently not clear when the offer expires.
The free iPhone app has over 4,000 restaurants and bars around Singapore in its massive database. You can look for restaurants by food type, you can look up top rated restaurants, or if you're not so fussy, you can look for restaurants near where you are. You can also use the search function to find restaurants in a particular area, say Holland Village, or if you like, restaurants that serve pizza in Holland Village. Impressive.
After you select a restaurant, you can read reviews and blog posts about the place. There's also a handy map to help you locate the restaurant. The map gives you both your current location (indicated by the letter 'U') and the restaurant's location. If you don't know how to get there, tap on Directions and you will be sent to Google Maps and you can get either walking or driving directions.
I've been playing around with the beta version for a while and it is pretty solid. In food-mad Singapore, I'm pretty sure this will take off. The free beer will certainly help.
