To get you started on your gastronomical adventure, here are the top 15 food blogs in Singapore for you to explore and gain culinary inspiration! 

 

The Top 15 Food Blogs in Singapore 

1. Lady Iron Chef 

Having started his blogging journey back in 2007, Brad Lau a.k.a. Ladyironchef has pioneered Singapore’s food blogging industry and paved the way for newer entrants into the scene. With years of experience under his belt, Brad covered almost all the best eats in the country from local eateries to fine dining restaurants in the form of guides, honest reviews, and video content as well. 

In fact, the blog has grown to be so successful that it now has an estimated readership of 3 million users a month with half a million followers on Instagram
