2. Explore nearby

Every time I visit a new city, I look up a ton of restaurants ahead of time. But, when the time comes, usually I haven’t mapped out a plan in advance, so when the hunger hits, I just need to find a decent place nearby. 

When you open Google Maps on your phone, there is a small bar on the bottom that you can open to see food and drink places nearby. Sort by lunch spots, coffee, cheap, etc, and see all the reviews at the same time. Also, you can quickly search on google with "restaurants near me" which will bring you the nearby restaurants and the distance from you.
