It’s getting hot in here: Hong Kong’s Foodporn chroniclers
Let's be honest, we've all been there. You're having dinner and a dish arrives which is sinful, sexy and outrageous, so good you absolutely, categorically have to...photograph it. Yes that's the world of foodporn we live in, where the calories can be virtual and the food hasn't been eaten until you've shared it with your followers.
Some Hong Kong folks are masters of the art, serving up snaps so tasty you'll be drooling over your phone or keyboard. Here are some of the finest celebrating the city's best places to get your eat on.
Hungry Hong Kong
“Exploring Hong Kong and the world one bite at a time” is how Daniel Haddad describes his mission. It’s been a successful one with more than 70,000 followers on Instagram regularly salivating over his beautifully-lit pictures of fine dining and street food alike.
His focus is primarily on Western cuisine, but everything he shoots is XXX rated when it comes to food porn.
That Food Cray!!!
Three exclamation marks are the calling card for That Food Cray, a global food, travel and lifestyle platform started by Hong Kong-based Canadians, Nicole Fung and Eugene Kan.
They chronicle their eating and travelling through strong visuals and have their work cut out updating their Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and more, but it’s Instagram with almost 100,000 followers where they’ve made their mark. They’re big on video ensuring fans get to see the food in action – who can’t resist the allure of katsu sauce being poured over a tonkatsu breaded pork cutlet?!
Chocolate Mui Mui
She may be Ling to her friends, but to thousands of followers on multiple platforms she’s better known as Chocolate Mui Mui. 20,000 fans on Facebook, more than double that on Instagram and thousands across other platforms means she’s one of Hong Kong’s top foodies.
Her photos tell the story, whether cutting into an oozing egg crepe in Macau, or pouring green sauce over a green tea matcha brownie, you leave her photos even hungrier than when you started.
