Dietary requirements

Vegetarian and vegan food was previously indicated using the cuisine key, but that practice has now been replaced by the more comprehensive diet=* key.

Semantic issues

cuisine=indian;vegetarian - is it place with various vegetarian cuisine and various indian cuisine? Or is it place with vegetarian indian cuisine?

This case can be handled by using diet:vegetarian=*, by making it more clear:

cuisine=seafood;regional - is it place where focused on a regional seafood? Or is it place with regional dishes and various seafood?

cuisine=chinese;japanese - is more clear as this can be interpreted only in one way

See also

  • It was suggested [1] to use culture=* instead of cuisine=* for other ethnic, cultural and/or regional services like hairdresser or clothes.
  • drink=* Describes which kind of beverage is available
  • diet=* Describes dietary options.
  • origin=* Describes the origin for the goods of a shop.
