Remember the best dishes at your favorite restaurants

When you are at restaurant take a quick note of what you ordered. You can also include a mini review of what was good. The next time you go back to that restaurant you can easily remember that dish you especially liked and steer clear of ones you didn’t.

*Pro Tip: If you use Evernote on iPhone or Android any notes will automatically include the location the note was created. This way if you return to the area of the restaurant you can call up the notes created close by.
