TasteAtlas (“atlas of taste”, translated into Spanish) is a global map that aims to provide information on food, ingredients, recipes and characteristic restaurants of each region; It was created in 2018 by the Croatian traveler Matija Babic.
The project originated in response to the lack of data regarding the gastronomy of the countries and the shortcomings of traditional tourist guides. Since then, he has regularly run popularity charts and numerical scores based on a scale of five of different food and beverage categories.
In addition, to date it already has specifications for 10,714 dishes, 5,940 endemic ingredients and 22,669 restaurants.
