Hilary is the proud owner behind Singapore food Instagram - @sgnomster. She does her best to put the food she comes across in their best light. Hilary also ensures to write an honest review, regardless of whether or not it is a positive one. One of the things she does constantly on her page is to feature less common foods from around the world. For example, Hilary visited Kazakhstan in May and shared some little-known but absolutely delicious eats that can't be found in Singapore.

Being the go-to person for food recommendations, Hilary decided to share her secret spots and reviews on social media to help others decide what to eat and never looked back since.

When you started, did you create an elaborate plan or was it very casual?

It was definitely very casual. I was more passionate and interested in creating beautiful images of the food that I’ve tried in my life and sharing my honest opinions on them.

Do you have any inspirations you look to for your content?

What are your top 3 favourite dishes and which place served it best?

1. Prawn Noodles - Albert Street Prawn Noodle

2. Duck Rice - Heng Gi Goose and Duck Rice

3. Mentaiko Pasta - Keria

If there were a dish that was your nemesis on this food journey, what would it be?

Not a particular dish but I really can’t stand the taste/smell of coriander.

What advice do you have for those who might want to start food blogging or Instagramming?

There’ll always be a list of places that you’d like to visit but at the end of the day, you shouldn’t be so fixated on where you went or didn’t go. I think you also have to enjoy the process of taking and editing pictures of the food at any location. It could be a hawker center, coffee shop, cafe or a high end restaurant, so that it’ll never feel like a ‘job’.
