My little hiatus & Yummy Vancouver, a food & drink search engine side project

Hey everyone,

Lack of updates recently, mainly due to me being sick for the past three weeks. I've also been busy with a lot of non-food related stuff.

On a more food related matter, I've been working a little project called Yummy Vancouver. It's a custom google search engine designed to search through local food blogs and websites (like dinehere, tasteof604, etc). With some help and ingenuity, I managed to include all the (mostly relevant) discussion topics from the British Columbia and Western Canada topics of both Chowhound and eGullet.

Yummy Vancouver, a food & drink search engine for Vancouver, BC

There are a lot of great resources on all things food & drink in Metro Vancouver, but you often have to know where to look. I thought that by compiling a database of these resources, the result would be a more focused alternative to simply using google. Anyway, try it out and let me know how it works for you!

If any food/drink blog or website owner wishes to be apart of the database, leave a comment here. Read the "About" section on the Yummy Vancouver website though!
