In today’s snap-happy digital age, any Hong Kong foodie knows that you haven’t truly eaten something until you’ve taken a picture of it and documented it on your FB/IG/Twitter feed. Let’s face it, though: Not everyone is a pro when it comes to taking expert food photos. That’s why we’re bringing you Insta Eats, a weekly roundup of drool-worthy #hkfoodporn showcasing our city’s best dishes from those who know just how to capture epic food photos that will get your appetite going. Without further ado, here are the 10 best Hong Kong #foodgrams posted this week to inspire your next meal out.
It’s the perfect season for a warming bowl of snake soup as the weather gets colder. e_ting tucked into this version at Cuisine Cuisine, which is made from five types of snake following the recipe from legendary Chinese culinary master Jiang Taishi.
Travel and food blogger @chocolatemuimui celebrated her birthday with this epic white truffle pizza at Macau’s Casa Don Alfonso. With the supply of the fragrant white tuber dwindling around town, you’ll want to get your white truffle fix here before the season’s up.
Shake Shack recently opened its second location in Pacific Place, and the queues are already snaking out the door. @thisgirlabroad stopped by during the grand opening last week to chow down on the Shack Burger, SmokeShack and Shroom Burger (pictured), all washed down with the Hong Kong-exclusive milk tea shakes.
@littlefthunter started the day off right with a fibre-rich breakfast of yogurt, blueberries and granola at Blue Supreme in Sheung Wan. We love the simple and minimalist presentation here, with the bright trail of blueberries popping off the plate.
Gordon Ramsay’s new Harbour City restaurant, Maze Grill, serves up stellar bistro-style fare, steaks and a side of panoramic views. @hkfoodsnob took advantage of the spacious terrace to enjoy a leisurely weekend brunch, with a fresh spread of salads, tartare and eggs Benedict.
Sometimes there’s nothing better than a home-cooked meal. We’re loving this food mag-worthy photo from @yewwooi, who was busy in her kitchen this week whipping up an autumnal treat with seasonal stone fruit sweetened with cinnamon, sugar and fresh herbs.
@gutakesworld caught this drool-worthy shot of melted cheese at Central favourite Check-in Taipei. The quirky restaurant serves twists on traditional Taiwanese street food, such as these egg pancake rolls blanketed in melted cheese for an East-meets-West twist.
Shaved ice desserts don’t get better than this monstrous construction from Japanese import Nakamura Tokichi. @hkfoodlover captured the vibrant colours of matcha and red bean syrup, topped off with tapioca balls and a scoop of decadent soft serve ice cream.
Tong Chong Street Market has returned for the season, with over 40 food stalls popping up at Taikoo Place every Sunday through 17 February 2019. Stop by to nab everything from fresh farmers’ produce to creative dishes from the city’s top chefs. Be like @cray4food and try Teemtone for everything from peanut butter to truffle ice cream.
@foodaholicshk was chowing down on this scallop sashimi with pickled fennel and cilantro at chef May Chow‘s Little Bao. Paired with fried wonton skins, it makes for the ultimate crunchy, zesty and mouthwatering bar snack at the perennial favourite.
