If you are as big of a food lover as me, then it’s likely that you eat with your eyes before you eat with your mouth. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite Chicago food instagrammers that consistently showcase the best food pics in Chicago. Better yet, many of them are bloggers and have some amazing recipes, restaurant reviews, travel tips and more on their websites!

MushroomStew the foodie and fashionista behind the lifestyle blog Sed Bona has the most clean cut and gorgeous food shots I’ve ever seen along with her latest outfits and of course lots of pug pics!
