Instagram was flooded this year with
mouth-watering images of Bermuda’s
food culture. The volume of images
undeniably peaked during Restaurant
Weeks and the Best Fish Sandwich
Competition, but reliably you could
find pictures so tempting no one could
blame us for trying to smell our smartphones. Here are a few local foodie
accounts on Instagram worth following
and tagging (listed alphabetically).
@Bermunchies: The creative minds at
Bermemes are behind this timeline of Bermuda delights. They’re particularly astute on
articulating the cultural aspect of what we eat
and why we like it.
@BiteOfBermuda: The photography is
eye-popping, chronicling Bermuda’s incredible
culinary scene and driving followers to dining
rooms and take-out counters across the country.
@eatoutbermuda: Print magazine & app
with gorgeous photography and mouth-watering descriptions, Eat Out Bermuda restaurant pages feature over 50 local restaurants. The restaurants in Eat Out Bermuda
are divided into parishes, giving a little bit of
local information and history, while the app
features a map view and live links helping
the visitor find exactly where to find the best
meals in Bermuda.
@SweetSaakBakery: Every picture is
like peeping through the glass door of your
nana’s oven, anxiously anticipating the taste
of whatever emerges. Delicious baked goods
are the focal point and in some cases you
can catch a post in enough time to get to St.
George’s before all the cinnamon buns are
@Wild Wing Wednesday: This timeline
proves every day is the right day for chicken
wings. You’ll find wings of every flavour
imaginable, and occasionally local celebrities
who can’t resist the desire to lick their fingers
while enjoying these delicious wings.
Tucker’s Farm Goats Cheese
With three varieties of fresh goats cheese—plain, Marley (

Seal rum)—as well as a more ripened Hay Jude, a surface-ripened blue cheese called Deja Blu and a raw milk version

creations Range in price from $7.50 to $10. Tucker’s Farm
cheese can be found at Supermart, Lindo’s Markets, Harrington Hundreds, Miles, Windybank Farm, Tom Wadson’s

its range to include fresh bottled goat’s milk.
Bermuda’s first mall-style food court opened on the lower

with business ever since. With six different food stations

salads, coffees and desserts), Fresh n’ Chopped (custom
