Known as a major foodie hub in the USA, Chicago is home to some delicious, unique treats. Numerous instagrammers/bloggers have dedicated their lives to trying the yummiest options Chicago has to offer and have been chronicling it all through there instagram accounts. This Chicago Food Guide through the Instagrammer’s eye will give you a look into the food culture of chicago.
Update: I originally posted this blog post in November 2015, but figured after 2 years it was time to give some newer bloggers/instagrammers some love. With ever changing restaurants, and new trends, this Chicago Food Guide definitely needed to be updated.
Quite honestly, all of these are my favorite accounts that I personally use when choosing where to grab a bite to eat in Chicago.
Chicago Food Authority at @chicagofoodauthority
This is the original, Chicago foodie guide. Back when Instagram still let users look at someone’s photo map, I would open up Chicago Food Authority and take a look at what was around me in any particular neighborhood of the city. My favorite thing about this instagrammer? She interacts with her followers and even listens to their recommendations!

Kips loves to eat her way around Chicago. The Hungry Hungry Kippo posts about her chronicles trying new restaurants and returning to the ones she loves most. I follow her to get a sense of what to try on every adventure into the city.

Me, the Jet-setting Spirit, at @jessslanger
You knew I had to plug myself, right?
While I don’t ONLY post pictures of food and Chicago, when I find a cool/yummy/unique place, I am always sure to share it. My instagram is a photo diary of my life, much like the My Year in Review Posts on this blog!
