Cell Phone Camera Tip: Remember Restaurant Menus

I have a habit my boyfriend hates, but it's really hard to stop. Every time I pass a restaurant on the street, I have to stop and read the menu. I can't help it. I've learned to do a really quick glance for the most important things — type of food, prices, all while keeping pace with my impatient boyfriend.

Then it struck me the other day when a menu caught my eye, doy, I'll just take a pic of it (my cell phone's camera never stops being useful). I get to satisfy my street menu urge, and even better, when I plug my iPhone into my computer, iPhoto '09 and Picasa geotag it, so I know exactly where I saw it.

P.S. Menu type too small? Snap a pic of the restaurant's sign and look it up on Yelp later.

Great tip - you can also upload photos of menus to a restaurant's page on Urban Spoon (although it only seems to cover major cities, and they seem to be pretty fussy about the quality of menu photos).

Great tip! I do that too – looking at menus of restaurants that look interesting to me – but never thought about taking a pic of them. Seems so simple! Hahaha. Thanks for the tip!
