There are no apps available.


Just as Lyft and Uber have replaced taxis and Airbnb reduced demand for hotel rooms, Traveling Spoon may be the smart service that is having a massive impact on the restaurant industry.

The site connects diners to pop-up dining experiences and provides hosts with a platform (and even physical space) to promote themselves and their unique themed dinners.

They now have hosts, 85% of whom are women, in 110 cities in 44 countries (including India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Morocco), dishing out more than 1,000 different dining experiences.
