Most Popular Foods on Instagram

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

Snap, post, love.

Those are words that were unheard off years prior – if you were eating at a restaurant and a diner was taking pictures of their food, it would have most likely caused a spark of curiosity around the room. Why bring a camera? Were they reviewing the establishment for a magazine? Wasn’t their dinner getting cold?

Welcome to 2015 and our camera of choice these days is the smartphone, and our film is Instagram: the app with the retro filters that makes food photographers out of everyone from amateurs to star chefs.

Instagram is the perfect medium to find mouth-watering, finger-licking inspiration but has also become a great resource for foodies when exploring local culinary scenes and discovering new hot spots to try out.

From classics to local favorites – as tagged on Instagram – I bring you the most Instagrammed foods: 

1. #pizza



A dietary staple for some, pizza is a little slice of heaven beloved with a blend of ooey gooey cheese, sauce and crust. Whether you love old school toppings or gourmet highlights to satisfy your craving, a pizzeria will most likely always be just a few steps away!

2. #sushi



Sushi cravings or indulgences happen to the most of us and I’m sure you’ve come across worthy spots that mean serious business. So whether you’re a local or tourist, make it a mission to go on an adventurous culinary experience. Step outside the box and try something new – especially sushi as it encompasses an entire realm of epic sensations.

3. #burger


Burgers are truly mouth-watering icons. Add Instagram into the equation and, oh boy, you’ll be drooling. Whether you’re loyal to something that resembles an American classic topped with cheddar or looking to sink your teeth into an innovative new creation – perhaps sunny side egg, onion rings or foie gras – burgers of Instagram are as decadent on screen as they are off.

4. #bacon


Smoked, Canadian, applewood or candied – the list goes on but do you need a bacon intervention? Bacon mania is upon us and has moved from a breakfast delight to a food trend touching an incredible selection of consumer goods from fast-food burgers and bacon-infused desserts. This has hands down become the defining food trend of a society obsessed with food trends. Maple bacon cupcake anyone?

5. #donut


French cruller, Boston cream, vanilla frosted or glazed – donuts have become an ever-changing staple that brought a smile to the morning commuter but it has unexpectedly hit the next level of lavish treat. Carbs and calories? Or sprinkles and creamed filled? I’ll go with the latter!
