I had made a request to buddy Anand Jain who dropped me an email yesterday to inform about the launch of Burrp Delhi. Wow, internet junkies were expecting this from quite sometime, apna(english : our own) desi (english : local) site is here.
- Imagine your uncle is in town and he wants to check out the best restaurant around Pitampura for example. You donot need to worry as burrp is there for you. Log on to burrp Delhi and read the review and send the restaurant details to your uncle right on his phone using Burrp’s SMS feature.
- Searching for Sandwich plaza across DLF? No problem Burrp’s here.
- Burrp Delhi has an extensive listing of food vendors, restaurants with different delicacies. No matter where you’re burrp Delhi is gonna take care of your eating worries.
Some one referred Burrp as the web-based version of Times Delhi Food guide. Probably, he might be correct but then users generate their own content give their own feedback. Also you might want to add the vast variety of restaurants and eating places which is definitely missing in the newsletter which have been published. The content in such guides is dead, it is too static. For an ordinary user, Burrp works well as it is neat and provides the information you can connect with.
Although Burrp has been around for quite sometime, it’s Delhi version is probably the first time I have checked it out.
Someone raised another question which might have been already answered or probably lookined into. The gentleman politely said,”So what’s the big deal about user generated content?”. “This looks like a focused version of mouthshut and we already have several directory listings like Indiamart. So according to me Burrp is a mashpup of a directory listings + user-reviews + web2.0 philosophy”.
