Gone are the days of indecisive meal plans when you can now let a bot decide what to eat.

Reddit user u/jasaaan recently created @EatWhatSia, an automated bot on Telegram that suggests food recommendations to users in Singapore.

The bot offers Halal-friendly options and recommendations based on various search filters including location, food type and cuisine.


For the undecided, users can also choose a surprise option or use /Community for suggestions from the community. PHOTO CREDIT: SCREENSHOT FROM EATWHATSIA ON TELEGRAM


A Reddit post on the bot was shared on r/Singapore which has since gathered more than 1,300 upvotes. Many have praised the bot for its ingenuity, with some commenting that it was a “very necessary” bot that they were excited to try.

In response to comments in the thread, the user shared that the bot is currently still in the works and that he was open to food suggestions from the public.

Feedback can be submitted through the bot using /Feedback and users can join the EatWhatSia Community channel for the latest updates.

Deciding on a meal during your next lunch date won’t be so tough after all!
