7 Instagram Accounts to Follow for Philly Food Inspiration

By Corinne Sinesi | February 6, 2019 | Food & Drink

Whether snacking is your guilty pleasure, health food is your hobby, or the usual Philly spots are starting to bore you, there’s someone on this list that you should follow. Here are seven Instagram accounts for food inspiration in Philadelphia.



You will have serious cravings upon viewing Hope Cohen’s Instagram feed. This Philly-native masters the eater’s point-of-view at refined local favorites like Barbuzzo and Res Ispa Cafe, along with cultural indulgences from her worldly travels. Cohen’s photos will remind you why you crave Philly, too.


Madeline Tague is a chef in the comforts of her kitchen with an Instagram feed as colorful as her spirit. She battles an autoimmune disease disorder, but allows food and positivity to ease her pain. If you want to know how smart meal prepping can boost your mood throughout a busy week, Tague is your go-to girl.


For those who love to indulge in chocolate chip pancakes and loaded waffle fries, this account was made for you. Owner Mollie Dronson is popular for her sweet and savory digital overload, which will likely urge you towards restaurants like Zahav’s modern Israeli cuisine.


You’re going to have to wash down all of this food with something. Paul MacDonald is a leading Philadelphian bartender at Rittenhouse Square’s buzzing bar, Friday Saturday Sunday. He posts aesthetically-pleasing pictures of mouth-watering drinks that he stirs up and names himself. Follow MacDonald for dazzling photos of classic drinks and his one-of-a-kind concoctions such as Fire Insurance and The Emperor’s New Laundromat.


If you are interested in what the diet of a nutrition consultant in Cheez Whiz city is like, look no further. Amy has her own cookbook out on the shelves, but her Instagram features more easy-to-make recipes such as lunch bowls filled with farro and avocado, and summer salads with red onion and blueberries. Amy will show you the right way to eat through Philadelphia.


Not only is this account dedicated to food, but it also highlights the owner’s top rated food tours around Philadelphia’s Chinatown—highlighting plates from favorites like Nam Phuong Restaurant and Delightful Garden.


There’s a new Philly-food influencer in town, and luckily she covers all of Philly’s trendiest spots. Although photos from west coast travels and Eagles games occasionally make an appearance, there’s a strong emphasis on food such as tuna tartare in Old City to gourmet eggs benedict in Manayunk.
