I am sure many of you living in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune or Kolkata and are food lovers, are familiar with the name Foodiebay.

Foodiebay is a portal (www.foodiebay.com) which is all about food and where we can find the best of it. It has been providing information from the nukkad wala dhaba to the swankiest restaurants in our town for some time now. The information is not only useful but is reliable too. It provides all the info we may ever need: menus, reviews, ratings, contacts. Other than this it also searches for the nearest restaurants needing to our taste. Be it any continental cuisine or Indian.

I personally use it always to look for new outlets within my range and surroundings and have tried many restaurants recommended by it.

But the news is, Foodiebay.com is now Zomato.com (based on the word Tomato, with a Zing)

As the Foodiebay team writes:

We have some exciting news to share with you today!

Starting today, you’ll notice that when you type in foodiebay.com, it magically transforms to zomato.com. That’s our rechristened name and we thought you should be the first to know about it.

Our initial offerings centered around Food and Restaurants only. That’s how the name Foodiebay was born. And we have always served you the most comprehensive online food guide. But we couldn’t stop the itch to expand into territories beyond just restaurants (yeah, surprises coming up soon!). It was therefore necessary to re-look at our name and we thought the best way forward was to rename ourselves.

Personally, Zomato didn’t excite me when I first read it. Foodiebay was relatively more suitable for the foodies but may be the stock owners have something more in their minds.

Let’s hope the company touches skies with this new branding.
