Imagine this: you are a tourist visiting Porec
area and you are getting hungry, but don´t feel like going to a restaurant or cooking. So what do you do? Then you order via Mealmade of course
Mealmade is an online food ordering platform
, connecting visiting tourists to local restaurants. Mealmade is a multilingual platform,
which means every tourist can order in their own language - easy, right?
Mealmade is partnering up with My Istria
to deliver the best food ordering experience to all our guests. Especially challenging these Covid-19 times.
So if you are visiting Porec this season and you are in the mood for some good food, you know where to go: www.mealmade.eu
Mealmade is a startup founded by 3 Dutch guys
, all with different backgrounds, coming from the field of business and HRM and also mechanical engineering. They are starting Mealmade this season in our beautiful coastal town of Porec, Istria.
We asked the founders of Mealmade how the idea for the platform came to life:
“Last year, in 2020, we were enjoying our holiday in Porec
, for the second year in a row. After having a couple of beers by the pool, we got very hungry. So we decided to order some food online.
Unfortunately, there was no service like this available in Porec
. We couldn’t find a website or app to order some food and the restaurants weren’t very findable on the internet. So we decided to make this happen, for us and all the other tourists visiting the beautiful country of Croatia.”
After enjoying some beautiful weeks on our coast and coming up with the idea of Mealmade, the founders of the platform traveled back to Holland and started building the platform immediately.
They are already planning to expand further throughout Croatia
to deliver this service to as many tourists visiting Croatia as possible, as well as throughout other countries if the concept proves to be a good one.
We wanted to know what makes Mealmade different from other online platforms:
“As mentioned above, Mealmade is focused on tourists.
We eliminate the language barrier
and make it as easy as possible for tourists. So they can order their favorite food in their own language at local restaurants
, when in a foreign environment. “
You are probably wondering how Mealmade works. It´s pretty simple: With Mealmade you can set the website in your own language
, choose between all the participating restaurants
and choose your favorite food. You confirm and pay
the order and then it's only a question of waiting for your food to be delivered or pick it up at the restaurant.
Also, an important thing to mention for all those using the platform is the fact that on the app you can toggle through all the food items and can check ingredients.
Or you could add a note for the restaurant to check for you. In case you have certain dietary restrictions or are simply avoiding some ingredients, this will help you make a better choice.
Some of the restaurants in Porec area
they work with are: restaurant La Riva, UMI street food, restaurant Marina, restaurant Willy, Fast Food Johnny, and restaurant Mamma Mia.
