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!

StrangeFoodChicago posts Chicago’s most unique hidden gems, ethnic foods, and cheap eats! Before following StrangeFoodChicago I had no idea the range of food Chicago had to offer!
As I mention 10days ago bluecrabs will be in $4.99 lb. that means Saigon bistro crawfish should have some n they make the best sauce for it. The viets really know how to season their food. Every market in viet town will have them, the cheapest, biggest, cleanest n most egg sack is hoa nam. Oh h-mart will have them too.

Sherrie Tan is an amazing pastry chef and baker at Sweet Mandy B’s in Chicago and her attention to detail translates into some terrific food photography!
Every party that serves sausages and soft pretzels should have housemade Mustard flights, don’t u agree? There are 5 different kinds, ranging from the Classic Yellow, creamy Herbacious (loaded with fresh herbs), Bavarian style (slightly sweet), Aquavit (with alcohol) to the spicy Whole Grain kind. They are all so unique and special in their own way. P.S. I am currently begging Chef Blake to do a supper club someday so that all of you guys can try his insanely delicious creations. Have a great night, Instagrammers! A photo posted by Sherrie Tan (@sherrietan43) on
