Bookalokal is the creation of US expat Evelyn White. She wanted to create way for people to connect over food. Her typical bookalokal customers include tourists, travel junkies, expats and local people – people who are wanting to meet new people.

Two of the guests had come completely solo as a way to meet new people. The rest were couples or friends.
