Google Maps provides restaurants within a certain cuisine you want, but if you're looking for a specific dish, or if you have allergies, you don't know if a restaurant has the dish you want or not.
What it does
With this web app, you can select a certain dish and ingredients you want / allergens you don't, and you will be given a list of nearby restaurant that fit those parameters (with key information including company name, menu item name, location, key ingredients, price, price rating).
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into challenges with cleaning the data, as each column presented different challenges. Reading through and selecting the nouns was difficult, and determine the best method to find price averages required many iterations of testing. For the back end we had to coordinate carefully with the web app to make sure all important metrics were given and most importantly, displayed properly. Formatting the web app required a lot of trial and error.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud of our web app and the clean, easy to use interface it has. We are also proud of our method of filling empty price averages by using the zip code. We are confident in the cleaning we did to the data and our back end work that allows it to be utilized by the web app.
What we learned
We learned about coordination between 3 different jobs as we had to code for a piece of the puzzle that wasn't completed yet.
What's next for Fiesta Finder
We're hoping to reapply our results to different data sets and find a solution that can be redeployed rapidly and with more menu items / ingredients.
