10 Singapore foodies to follow on Instagram

#foodporn is officially one of the most popular Instagram hashtags, and no meal can start without the smartphones ‘eating’ (ok, taking a photo) before we do. Singaporeans take their food seriously and we certainly don’t have a lack of options in the dining scene.

While you might have your fair share of #foodporn on your social media feed, we recommend taking a cue from these 10 Singapore foodies — from food bloggers to chefs to celebrities, their recommendations will certainly provide more fodder for your restaurant hit list. Bon Appétit!

Lawyer-turned-restaurateur and chef, Willin Low is the owner of successful fusion restaurant Wild Rocket, and is also known for his appearance as a judge on local television’s Wok Stars.

While Willin’s restaurant serves up fine dining cuisine and he is often the guest chef for high-end events such as private dinners, the man himself is a big fan of hawker fare and his Instagram posts bear evidence of that.

@immichellechong 

When actress, director and host Michelle Chong isn’t busy filming or hobnobbing with other celebrities, you can be sure that she’s eating up a storm — either feasting with family (her dad seems to be a very good cook) or having a sumptuous meal at a hawker centre or restaurant.

With her voracious appetite, it is quite puzzling how she maintains her slim figure.

@misstamchiak 

For a food blogger, Maureen Ow has a very apt social media handle — tam chiak actually means greedy in the Hokkien dialect.

One of the few food bloggers in Singapore to start blogging in Mandarin, Maureen also regularly shares recipes on Miss Tam Chiak with fellow foodies who are as tam chiak as her.

@danielfooddiary

This is quite an irony, but even as Daniel Ang tempts us with drool-worthy shots of whatever he’s eating, he’s also an advocator of healthy living as a fitness instructor. Seems like ‘everything in moderation’ is his modus operandi.

Daniel’s Food Diary was started out of Daniel’s passion for food, and is actually a hobby project of the full-time polytechnic lecturer. He chose to blog about food as he felt that it’s a timeless topic and one that’s close to the heart of Singaporeans — we concur.

@ieatishootipost 

A firm advocator of never wasting calories on “yucky food”, Leslie Tay’s I Eat I Shoot I Post  site is one of the pioneers of the #foodporn phenomenon in Singapore.

@myfoodsirens 

Kaelyn Ong, the petite lady behind My Food Sirens shares that the name of her blog was partly inspired by Greek mythology, where “sirens are creatures sweet voices that lured sailors into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.” To her, food is like the sirens in so many ways –“Intoxicating, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you.”

While most food bloggers say that they eat literally everything, Kaelyn is not shy about being biased towards certain foods — she’s a pescetarian and has a weakness for Pierre Hermé’s macaroons, Hidemi Sugino’s mousse cakes from Tokyo, and anything with pumpkin, black sesame and chestnut.
