• Celebrating Year Two

    Foodspotting turned two in January and we celebrated all month with eatups around the world. In San Francisco we threw a Foodspotting Ball Ball for our birthday and to toast to the release of our redesigned iPhone and Android apps.

    Thanks to our awesome sponsors Beretta, Hog & Rocks, Chef Michael Hung and Lemon Z Limoncello, we served delicious foods in our favorite shape, like bourbon cheese balls, whole grain rice onigiri with black truffle and Dungeness crab arancini.

    Everyone also adored the treats provided by our bicoastal birthday cupcake sponsor Sprinkles Cupcakes, some which even featured our new logo!

    In New York City, a new artist loft space-bar called Kinfolk Studios opened its doors to foodspotters and a Filipino feast of longanisa sliders (sweet sausage) and arroz caldo presented by one of our favorite East Village restaurants, Maharlika.

    From London to Istanbul and Philly to Sacramento, Foodspotting ambassadors and users got together to celebrate our second year and spot food. Even during a snowstorm, Seattle spotters met at Chino's for cupcakes by Cupcake Royale, Mini Mai-Tai and Gua Bao...

    Philly foodspotters gathered at beloved Khyber Pass Pub for drinks, an almond birthday cake with strawberry and buttercream, and cupcakes custom made by Cupcake Karma. Read the recap on bridges, burgers & beer and see more pics by foodspotter Mikey Il.

    Meanwhile... in Silicon Valley, Foodspotting ambassador and super spotter Randy collaborated with his all-time favorite restaurant Alexander's Steakhouse in Cupertino to make the night extra special, complete with a "meat and greet" with executive chef Jeffrey Stout, champagne and dessert tasting!

    Our DC ambassador Lisa ate this entire cake by herself...

    Just kidding! Lisa was joined by loyal spotters at H Street Country Club and the cake was created by Whisked DC.

    Los Angeles and OC foodspotters celebrated with this amazing-looking chocolate powder covered behemoth. Read the recap and see more pics by foodspotter Steven...

    Last but not least, we're still blown away by this birthday brunch spread and two-tiered cake created just for us by Delish New York Bakery in Orlando! Don't miss the wonderful write-up by our Orlando ambassador Julius on his food blog, Droolius.
