EatWith Turns Homes into a Private Restaurants

by Hazel Chua

When it comes to traveling, half the fun comes from meeting new people, trying out homegrown delicacies, and experiencing the locale’s culture. One thing you can try the next time you fly out is EatWith, which gives you all three of these in one neat experience.


EatWith is a new web-based service that lets wannabe restaurateurs open up their kitchen or dining table to interested travelers. The founders of the site explain that “being a guest in someone’s home is a great way to get an authentic local perspective in a different city or country“, and I agree wholeheartedly.

Basically EatWith will hook up open kitchens with foreign diners and the rest is history. Home restaurants can offer meals that range in price from $30 to $50(USD). It’s not exactly cheap, but it’s still a lot less than what many restaurants normally charge. Cost aside, the experience it gives is more or less priceless.


If you’re sort of anti-social and are just in it for the food, don’t worry because you can check out home restaurants that have hosts that just serve you your food and leave you alone to enjoy your meal. These details are listed under “host style” in the Offering Details section of the EatWith experience page that you’re browsing.

Now before you start raising concerns about safety and security of either diners or hosts, EatWith has arranged for a $1 million insurance policy to protect guests and hosts, and also offers verification services, secure online payments and 24/7 customer service.

This is definitely something I’d want to try out in the future.

    What a neat idea. I had not heard about this before but will look it up next time i’m traveling. I can’t wait until they are in other countries. It certainly makes a very attractive alternative to restaurants! Good luck to this great idea!
