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 we’ve come across this week to inspire your next meal out.
Jet-setting foodie @nomnomomo found herself at fusion favourite Second Draft this week, crunching into their irresistible fried chicken on hotcakes. The monochromatic nature of this dish is key to its photo-worthy composition, highlighted only by the bubbles of extra fried chicken fat on the crackling skin.
It’s not hard to make sushi look good due to its inherently artful nature, but we’re particularly drawn to this mouthwatering sashimi arrangement courtesy of Xuan Sushi‘s expert chefs. @eatnfat has nailed the overhead shot, with each ingredient popping from the bowl in a vibrant array of textures and colours.
A good tamagoyaki (rolled egg omelette) is the mark of a great Japanese chef, and we’re loving the fluffy, sunshine yellow look of newly opened ramen eatery Nojo’s version, captured by @littlefthunter. In case you’re craving more — check out the restaurant’s own Insta account here, where they’ve absolutely nailed the #foodporn.
Something about this pic by @mohkc makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It’s the quintessential Hong Kong shot taken at the nostalgic Kam Wah Cafe: complete with golden egg tart, a soy chicken leg and Black & White milk tea cup.
