Currently at 3 and a half years, Harvard’s blog contains more than 3,700 food reviews from all over the world. As someone who lives on his own, Harvard frequents restaurants on a daily basis and figures those experiences should be shared with others. He describes his platforms as “a glimpse of his day to day food adventures.” It is also filled with food shots of various, interesting products, unusual must-go restaurants, and novelty food items.
This all results in a feed which is curated, vibrant and captivating! And next year, Harvard will be organizing food crawls for his followers in key cities in Metro Manila.

8. Karla Niña Mallannao & Christian Corpuz (The Hungry Traveler)

The Hungry Traveler began 3 years ago with Karla and Christian simply sharing their experiences of eating out at restaurants online. After gaining encouragement from friends, they decided to turn those simple posts into a blog that could help others. The Hungry Traveler PH was then born, focusing on food and travel emphasizing what it’s like to have Pinoy taste buds and Pinoy feet.
Their blog has a wide range of contents, from whatever is served on the table, to entire experiences of traveling from point A to Z.
7. Ojie Dominguez (Pigging Out On Sundays)
(IG: @piggingoutonsundays SITE: https://www.piggingoutonsundays.com FB: /piggingoutonsundaysmarjorieportia.dominguez Zomato: /pigoutsundays)
A mom of 4 who loves to eat and chronicle everything (to the consternation of her handsome hubby and piggery), Ojie began posting food reviews on Zomato 2 years ago. But she had actually been documenting her kitchen (mis)adventures under another blog, Food Fiend, for some time before that. She attributes her fixation of putting everything down in writing to a book she plans on gifting the love-of-her-life.
Ojie shares that she’s “still on that project with a chapter on my foodie life aka a ‘perennial’ swimming in a sea of millennials and loving it.”
6. Diane Go (Fried and Prejudice)
(@friedandprejudice and @iamdianenicole)
Fried and Prejudice simply started out in 2016 as a curated album for Diane’s family and friends: a guide of food recommendations around Hong Kong and Manila. 2 years after, she was encouraged to post reviews on Zomato and the rest is history.
Fried and Prejudice is a food blog by a little foodie who stands on chairs to get that perfect flatlay photo. It’s a carefully curated site that features her favorite food (but no beef!). What sets this blog apart is the understanding that taste is subjective so reviews focus more on the experience of eating rather than something being just ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Most importantly, Diane only features honest reviews so if she doesn’t like a dish, she doesn’t write about it.
