Singapore’s huge variety in our dining scene is proof that we love our food. On top of that, dedicated food Instagrammers have grabbed our attention as they document their adventures, whether they’re cooking or baking up a storm, giving reviews, scouring for the hidden gems of Singapore or just chillaxing with #foodporn on your feed. From chefs and patisseries to bloggers and students, here’s our list of 15 Singapore foodie Instagrammers to follow.

How Clara Bean, the NUS student behind @explodingbelly can juggle between school, staying fit and yet consuming all those yummy dishes is amazing. But what amazes us more is how she goes to such lengths to show off and review the best places around Singapore to fulfil your cravings. We are not the only ones thinking that with her following of 29k showing just what is so good about her pictures. Want a recommendation on which café gives you the most bang for your buck?

Mrs Braverman's Cheesecake (you know, the one Chandler and Rachel were fighting over) from Central Perk Singapore, which launches this weekend at Central Mall. The cheesecake itself was soft and surrenderingly mousse-y, whilst elsewhere the tart lemony top added a gentle, non-intrusive zing. 3.8/5 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ This was a hosted meal, courtesy of Central Perk Singapore.
Think lawyers are boring people stuck looking at documents or fighting for their client in court? Shawn proves they are just like any of us, with his obsession of food. Injecting humour and current Singapore pop culture references into his reviews and captions, we were as much entertained as we were informed while scrolling through his feed. We are not the only ones thinking this way with his 18.5k following agreeing with us.

Was craving for this Thai Green Curry Chicken ($8) so I struggled to the car and swung by to pick up my orders from @roythaikitchen. So comforting after eating this, the taste very close to what I learnt in Northern Thailand. Hopefully the herbs inside will do my knee good! Yums! 😋 ••• Roy Thai Kitchen Add: Blk 106 Hougang Ave 1 Coffeeshop ••• #eatwithroy #foodporn #foodgasm #foodstagram #foodpics #sgig #singapore #ieatisnapicrap #iphonese #supporthawker #supportsghawkers #hawkerfood #hawker #supportlocalsg #roythaikitchen #Hougang #houganggoodfood #thaigreencurrychicken #sgthaifood #thaifood #thaicuisine #aroimakmak
They say never to trust a chef who doesn’t eat his own food. With Roy, you can definitely trust him what with Roy being the café owner and barista at Black and Ink. In addition to that, he also blogs about his culinary journey. Posting pictures and reviews of local delights in Singapore as well as featuring some food featured in Black and Ink, scrolling through his feed gives you a very comforting feeling. 14.3k of his followers have found comfort in his pictures, join them now.
There is something just so deeply satisfying about reading poetry, and with @hiamjio, reviews and captions are all in poetry. It injects fun to the picture and brightens up your day. 8.6k people stay tuned for the rhymes, and so should you.

Genki [$16] Bowls seem to be in such a trend right now. You've got lunch bowls, poke bowls and even Ninja Bowls! It's pretty hard to find good unagi these days but just take a look at this beaut! Consisting of Yaki unagi, roasted pumpkin, beansprouts, onsen egg and pickled beets, good Lordy, can someone deliver this to me right now? Sidenote - I've just got word that I've been listed in FoodPanda's "Top 50 Food Bloggers Singapore" at number 15! I'm truly honoured to be even considered and I'll like to thank both FoodPanda and everyone of you guys who have been supporting me from the start!

9. Dionna Lee (@tofurier)
There is something whimsical and out-of-this-world with Dionna’s pictures that enthral us. Every photo tells a story about the scene and the subjects which make us see the food in a different way. In fact, it doesn’t even look like food with how surreal they look and that’s how you know the pictures are great. Step up your Instagram feed with Dionna on your feed along with 52.6k other people.
10. Willin Low (@willcookwilleat)
Chef Willin Low left his law career to open Wild Rocket and we are thankful for that. His Mod Sin cuisine won over the hearts of many, and so has his Instagram feed as well. His 32.9k followers would agree. He is a Singaporean through and through with many of his pictures hunting down local and heritage food, and his own cooking.
11. Janice Wong (@janicewong2am)
Galaxy, abstract art and the whimsical come together in Janice Wong’s desserts. Scrolling through Janice’s feed is like walking through an art museum with just how stunning every photo is. The best part? These are all edible! Take all our money! She’s already taken over the hearts of 27.7k followers, add your own name to that list.
It all looks so glamorous from the outside, but what if we had a way to really see what happens behind the scenes? One of the faces behind Sin Lee Foods is our eyes into Singapore’s F&B industry. Speaking the truth about what we don’t see, his photos give a realness that draws you in and hooks you with his sometimes snarky commentary about the hard work put into making it. He has inspired 4k people, let yourself be inspired by him.
13. Ng Li Tying (@nglitying)
Li Tying is #goals with her story of being a self-taught baker to becoming a baker at The Spatula & the Pen. Her baked goods leave us drooling and dreaming of being only half as good. Did we mention that she makes matcha Nutella salted egg brownies? She had me and her 15.3k followers at matcha.
