A new ‘Tinder-style’ app is hoping to revolutionise the way that Londoners find restaurants by learning its users’ tastes in real-time and delivering personalised recommendations.

FOODMOOD allows users to YUM or YUK pictures of delicious food and the app technology will instantly understand the food mood the user is in and recommend restaurants they will love.

The FOODMOOD team, Charles Fattouche and Mehdi Kehloufi, who describe themselves as foodie geeks, spent the last 12 months designing a search engine smart enough to learn in real-time.

Fattouche said: “When looking at a dish, the human brains instantly captures multiple features from the type of cuisine to minor details such as the use of specific ingredients or the way they have been cooked.

“Our algorithm is designed to mimic that behaviour. It uses more than a hundred food features to analyse each yum or yuk and ultimately root down what you are in the mood for.”
