A meal is the album of your dining experience in a particular restaurant. When you click on Create Meal, you first have to add a photo. Then you are redirected to a new page where you can choose a restaurant, add more photos and a description, classify your meal as breakfast, lunch or dinner, add a date, insert tags or tag other users, or rate your meal on a scale of 1 to 10. Lastly, save your meal as a draft or share it as a public post.

Add Meal Photo(s)
By clicking on Add Meal Photo(s), you can add a photo, dish, beverage or ambience to any of your meals. A Dish entry, for example, is a sub-album of your Meal where you share different photos of the same dish and add additional information to this entry - a title, description and rating.

When you click on the Plus Button, you have several options:
You can create a new meal as described above or add photos, dishes, beverages or ambience to already posted meals.

You can either delete or edit your meal including your description, photos, tags, dates, rating, category, or meal status.
It is up to you whether you want to add a description to your meal. Keep in mind, though, that most users find posts with descriptions much more interesting and useful. We also don’t like to write on phone screens, but we think of it as helping a fellow foodie to make the right choice about a dish or a dining place. Moreover, when people see a meal photo, they will be curious to know what this meal is.
The text limit for a meal description is 500 characters.
We do not have any requirements to the photos you upload, but we do recommend that you use high quality images. We support .jpg and .png file formats.
