8 Instagram-Worthy Eateries in the East - Singapore

A recent study has found that taking a picture of your food before eating it can actually make it taste better. Now, I have a bunch of theories for why that may be – one of them being, the way your food looks is the first impression you have of it and it also contributes to the entire eating experience. Basically, food that looks good makes you want to take a picture of it because you think it will taste good as well, so it all comes to a full circle!

Whatever the reason is, we are compelled to snap a picture of the plate before eating and awesome food pictures get all the likes! Here are 9 Instagram-worthy eateries in East Singapore to please your eyes (and definitely your stomach)!


1. Brothers in Fine Food

The décor is minimalistic and has an industrial vibe to it with wooden furniture, cement floors and metallic accents in the design. The food follows a similar theme, with titles like “The Builder's Breakfast” and “The Butcher's Daughter”. The restaurant also has good lighting and the delicious food is excellently plated, so get your cameras ready.

Churros, dips, and milk. What more could one want, really? It's this simple, yet yummy formula that has made Chulop, a Muslim-owned eatery, one of the trendiest hidden cafes in the east of Singapore lately. If you've never had churros, they are basically a Mexican doughnut, except they are long in shape, super crispy on the outside, and served dipped in chocolate!
