Google today have announced a new update to the “explore” option to make life easier for food goers,however this update will be just for the UK and the US first,this might be a nice idea if you are stuck for choice or want to let Google decide for you,there is already similar options available on the likes of Augmented reality app City Lens  from HERE maps which is also a very handy app on Windows Phone ..try it out… For now this update only applies to Android only and no word on iOS…

Google say

Starting today in Google Maps for Android in the US and UK, you’ll be able to uncover the best your city has to offer with our updated explore feature. And in NYC, San Francisco and London, you’ll enjoy curated recommendations from Google Maps. Now you can discover what is unique (and delicious!) about the neighborhood you’re in — whether it’s pre-theater dining in the Theater District in NYC, Dolores Park picnic fare in the Mission in San Francisco or centuries-old pubs in The City in London.

Once you pick the category that suits your craving, you can see in-depth details about each location. Swipe through photos, get details (family-friendly? quick bite?), and check out ratings and reviews from Google and other diners. And for select spots, you also discover why it may be particularly relevant to you: for example, Google Maps may recommend a place that’s popular with other diners who visited a place you’ve been to in the past.

So there you have if,off with ya now and find some food if you are hungry,tell us how it is…
