Key features of MVP include 'Food Selection' feature and 'Planning with Friends' feature


This project started when I asked a friend what we were having for lunch. There were simply too many restaurants to choose from. When there are hundreds of options, it can be overwhelming to try and pick just one. Everyone also has their own individual taste preferences when it comes to food, so it can be challenging to find a place that satisfies everyone's palate.

Choosing a restaurant can also be hard if you're eating with a group of people who all have different opinions or are indecisive. Trying to make everyone happy can be difficult and time-consuming. This led to the second key feature which was planning a meal with friends and choosing a place where everyone could agree on.
