There’s only one thing better than tucking into delicious local food on holiday, and that’s planning your itinerary on Instagram. Following foodie Instagrammers is not only a great way to get excited for your trip but to research and create a list of must-try dishes and restaurants.

Here we’ve put together a hand-picked selection of our favourite foodie Instagrammers from across the globe, who showcase delicacies from a traditional Neapolitan to Australian Tim Tam funnel cakes. Time to tuck in!

1. Girl Eat World @girleatworld

What do you do if you don't like taking selfies? You take pictures of your food, instead. Mel from Girl Eat World documents her travels through food photography and has amassed an impressive 397k followers doing so. Her most recent destinations include Taiwan, Bali, Japan and Singapore.

Her photos are bright, colourful and always feature her chosen delicacies centre-stage. She has a penchant for desserts (who doesn’t?), with one popular picture featuring a Japanese creampuff, oozing with Hokkaido cream and sprinkled with toasted almonds. There's also Takoyaki, a famous street food in Japan which features octopus, onion and ginger crammed into fried batter. If you’re planning on an Asian cruise, @girleatworld is a must-follow.  


2. Food Feels @food_feels

The face behind the @food_feels account is James, whose foodie adventures have taken him from London to Sydney and plenty of places in between. His stylish and artfully composed food shots have seen his following grow to 133k and counting.

Recent location spotlights on the Food Feels account include the Greek island of Santorini. The images perfectly capture the fresh whitewashed walls of the tavernas, the topsy-turvy streets and the pure cobalt of the ocean - but most of all, the beautiful simplicity of the island's seafood. Food Feels is an inspiring account to follow whether you're looking for recommendations on where to eat in London, or somewhere further afield.
