Next Week: How do you enjoy street foods in Việt Nam?
Instagram, a community of more than 300 million who capture and share the world’s moments on the service, has emerged as a creative crowdsourcing tool for finding food vendors by clicking and sifting through hashtags like “#Vietnamese food”, “#feastagram” or “#Hanoifoodie”.
The Vietmomom Instagram page, operated by a couple from the US, has become popular among expats and tourists getting acquainted with Vietnamese cuisine. Many kinds of Vietnamese street foods were showcased on the page with clever captions and addresses detailing where to find the food. And the page attracted 5,400-plus followers.
Do you use Instagram to learn about local cuisine? What do you look for in a Vietnamese “food experience”? What do you think about street food in Việt Nam? Which foods are your favourites?
