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.

We’d be willing to argue that there’s no dessert more perfectly Instagrammable than a Baked Alaska. Here, @hongkongfoodie digs into the “S’mores Alaska” at newly opened Hunter & The Chase — a riff on the classic with a dome of chocolate ice cream served with graham crackers and torched meringue.
Although Five Guys is just about to open in Wan Chai, @thisgirlabroad was tucking into her favourite burger over on Lockhart Road at neighbourhood staple, Burger Joys. Who could resist those colourful layers in this classically constructed cheeseburger?
@myfoodiediaryyy popped by the new Morpheus hotel in Macau to check out the sumptuous pastry treats and desserts by renowned French pastry chef Pierre Hermé. The highlight of the meal? Cracking open this shimmering chocolate disc with a small hammer, designed to mimic the stunning geometric exterior of the hotel.
At the top of the list of the most Instagrammed dishes in all of Hong Kong — Wagyu beef bowls almost always make for some irresistible #foodporn. This one from Inakaya, captured by food blogger @saiileee, features just-cooked slices of beef topped off with a soft onsen egg and generous shavings of white truffle.
Since closing shop at Rhoda, chef Nate Green has been keeping busy in the kitchen with his new gourmet burger and sandwich line, Harley’s, now available at all Cali-Mex Bar & Grill locations. This double-decker shot of Green’s mac ‘n’ cheese burger by @gutakesworld has us salivating at our desks — a seemingly genius combination of everyone’s two favourite comfort foods.
