Useful Telegram Bot Helps Singaporeans Decide What To Eat

Singaporeans often face the dilemma of choosing what to eat for lunch and dinner due to the myriad of delicious options we have in Singapore.

Sometimes, it is easier to let someone else decide instead. It could be your SO, your foodie friend, or in this case — a bot.

Telegram users, rejoice, for this bot exists on your primary messaging platform. It is created by Reddit user /u/jasaaan, which will help alleviate food-choosing dilemmas from here on.

Let’s check out what this bot has to offer.

In this post, he stated that while the bot is now up and running, it is still in its beta mode. Changes are underway, as he is hoping for more user contributions to make it a more well-rounded bot.

The screenshot he shared showed simplicity in user interface.

And so, the people at MS News put it to the test.
