My wife is a French bistro

A while ago Jon wrote an interesting blog post about how you can guess the cuisine of a restaurant just by looking at the name:

At Triposo we have a database of restaurants that we've collected from various open content sources. When we display this list in our mobile travel guides one of the key pieces of information for our users is what cuisine the restaurant has. We often have this available but not all the time. Sometimes you can guess the cuisine just by looking at the name:
"Sea Palace" - probably chinese. "Bavarian Biercafe" - probably german. "Athena" - probably greek.

So based on the technology Jon describes, we created a little interactive feature in our Labs section where you can fill in any restaurant name and see what cuisine it would most likely be. We call it the cuisine guesser. You can type in your own name (I'm an American diner, my wife is a little French bistro), your favorite singer (Shakira does Sushi) or finally find out what they will be serving in the restaurant at the end of the Universe. As the logo below suggests it's American.


Obviously, the mechanism works best if you use real restaurant names and not people's name. It's actually kinda fun we think to just type in restaurant names and see what happens. We think It's most fun if you set yourself some sort of target.

Here are a few challenges we like:

  • What is the name of the quintessential Chinese restaurant?
    You're allowed to use three words only. The score to beat is 11.12 which is the score of "Golden Dragon"
  • Can you find a restaurant name that scores well both on vegetarian and on bbq?
    You're allowed to use four words here. So far I have not been able to come up with something better than "Vegan Salad BBQ" scoring just over 4 on bbq and under 2 for vegetarian, so I guess there is room for improvement there.
  • Can you find a restaurant that scores high on eclectic?
    The best I could do was "Djanidjan" which has a score of just 2. But I'm afraid it's not really a restaurant name but just a made up word.

"Hung Dynasty" returns a score of 12.13 as a Chinese restaurant, despite being neither a dynasty or a restaurant (as far as Google is concerned, anyway).

Yet it was the first phrase that popped into my head as the "archetypal Chinese restaurant" name.

Don't know whether that makes me incredibly weird or incredibly normal...

I think that in this century which is full on the newest technologies, it is very convenient to have such app, database of restaurants, when you are away from home or in a city center and you don't have to wait for a long time to search for a certain restaurant or cafeteria. Just go to your mobile travel guides and within a few minutes you know where to go and what is more - you already know what cuisine the restaurant has. I love new updates. Well done, guys. I will let people know about this necessary app on my writing blog. This will make people's life easier.

Yet, to compensate for that, there are various land advances that you can look over. Ensure that it is you who gets the chance to choose at last which arrive advance is more feasible and helpful for you. car title loans

Banks will credit cash to buy the land and the trailer simply like they loan to individuals who are purchasing a home on an establishment. You can get one advance to pay for both land and trailer, or you can get two separate credits. One to pay for the land and another to pay for the manufactured home. Cash Advance Chicago

I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
