It’s no secret that we Pinoys love our food. Taking photos of our food and posting it on social media for all our friends and family to see? We love that even more!
We have turned to social media now more than ever to keep tabs on the new restaurants to look out for, and all the yummy eats we can try around the metro! Unsurprisingly, then, that tons of Instagram food accounts, all run by Filipino foodies, have quickly risen to fame on the app.
We have here an unranked, incomplete list of Pinoy foodie IG accounts that will just make you drool and crave for whatever it is you’re craving. Gooey cheese? Dripping egg yolk? We are so there.
Cuter than an Instagram couple account is an Instagram couple food account. Mark and Bianca, who call themselves Mr. and Mrs. Eats, are behind this stunning food account, documenting the food they explore on their travels, along with their adorable daughter Sabine.

We’ve always loved the Bald Baker, aka Cy Ynares’ flair for aesthetic, with his well-thought out styling. Check out his yummy baked goods like the bespoke banana bread and rich, chewy craft cookies, which you can order from him!

A coffee shop owner-turned-food blogger, Richard Co, aka talesfromthetummy, has an Instagram aesthetic that would make any millennial green with envy. We love how he puts care not just in every individual photo, but to the overall coherence of his feed.
When it comes to food blogging, the camera eats first. Leslie, who is behind @shootfirsteatlater, is one of the OG food bloggers, and we’ve consistently relied on her honest food reviews and gorgeous photos!

Neil, who is behind the account @spoonsaroundtheworld, seems to have mastered those food porn-y shots that make food blogging so wonderful and crave-inducing, like the dripping of sauce, the oozing of egg yolk, and the awesome cheese pull. Give us s’more, please!

If you’re looking for an authority on food, look no further than @fooddudeph, Angelo Comsti. He’s miles above the average foodie: a graduate of the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu Institute, Angelo is also a cookbook author and a professional food writer. Oh, and it helps that he’s got Instagram-worthy photos too.

Jerrod Santos, the guy behind @gourmanila, seems to go the extra mile with his popular food account. We love that he often involves some sort of human interaction with the food, making his photos come alive.

If it’s picturesque desserts you want, it’s jaw-dropping macarons and pastries you’ll get with Lori Baltazar’s account, @dessertcomes1st. She’s since expanded to include other kinds of food, but our heart still beats still at the sight of luscious baked goods.
