Foodies of Instagram Top Picks (and pics)

Some of the best pics on Instagram are pics of food.   I never post what I cook and rarely post what I eat.   But I love looking at others pics.   I started following this food account and learned that it’s created by two high school students.   I asked them to send me a list of their “Best of Westchester” and here’s what they think is the best.   Some are good old fashioned favorites like the Candlelight Inn and some are old-turned-new, like the new breakfast menu at the Scarsdale Metro Diner.   They’ve shared the best bacon-egg-cheese sandwich, pizza, wings, burgers, guacamole, baked goods and more. This list would take the average Westchester-ite years to compile.  Not the healthiest, but these basketball playing student athletes work plenty of calories off at practice and games each week!   Their account on Instagram is below, along with their pics and list of favorites.

This account all started in Lancaster Pennsylvania. My friend and I travel a lot for our AAU basketball team and in doing this we visit a lot of new and delicious restaurants. We were in a diner eating cheesecake and taking pictures of it when our mothers suggested we create a food account on Instagram to post all our pictures on. At first, we made a joke of the idea, but then we actually considered the possibility and then we created f00diies_.

It took us a while to gain fame and get more followers, however after a while we slowly gained fame. We would have never expected to have over 5,600 followers when we first made the account but now looking back I am glad that we did. Posting the pictures and eating all these delicious foods has been a lot of fun. People tag us in and send us pictures and the time and feel honored when we post their pictures. We hope to continue to gain followers and share our delicious meals with our awesome followers.
