Facebook may be for old people (unfortunately, that most likely includes your very august selves), but Instagram is for everyone. At least, for the moment.
As we whittle away what little unoccupied time we have scrolling and tapping through our instagram feeds, just for once let Instagram feed us with inspiration for our next meals!
Food is an addiction. The love of the dining experience is as captivating as heroin, only the syringes are stuck in your poultry or come served as pretentious appetizer if you’re at one of those joints that deconstruct food (in case your stomach acids are incapable of such a feat, apparently).
But we all need our vices, so why not let yours be the pursuit of the epicurean pinnacle? Whether your dining goals be lofty, or your cravings be sudden, or probably because you’re bored - let these local foodagram accounts point your tastebuds in the right direction.

Willin Low, Singapore’s very own celebrity chef is a media savvy kitchen Kaiser and has quite a following online. Since he is a great maker of cuisine, unsurprisingly he is also a great lover of food. His Instagram is constantly updated with whatever delectables he either indulges in, or is in the process of creating.
Tan Hsueh Yun is primarily known as a food reviewer for the Straits Times, but she has found a loyal foodie following on social media, and is probably the human equivalent of your local dining bloodhound.
She traverses our highways and avenues, digging deep into the nook and crannies of our otherwise unimpressive neighborhoods to find the best of local and international fare on our small little food mad nation.
Dr. Leslie Tay is Singapore’s hawker food authority, having published four books on the matter and led us on a recent hawker food trail.
He is however not a doctor of food, but a real family doctor. So if seeking out all the hawker fare on his Instagram starts to cause you a mild case of obesity or very possibly gout, we reckon he’ll be able to sort you out. Don’t quote us though.
