Someone who truly understands the definition of #yolkporn. This calls for a visit to Nellcôte, stat.

@mallorykorol

If only liking this photo meant we could find out what a rainbow grilled cheese tastes like.

cheetos

@chelsias

Because we needed someone to taste test a hot Cheetos-covered sushi burrito.

crilled mac

@windycitydinnerfairy

Another pastry chef who understands the power of savory. (Are you gonna finish that mac-n-cheese grilled cheese?)

@ChicagoFoodAuthority

We gotta hand it to this pizza—it certainly knows how to pose for the cameras.

@VegTourist

Vegetarians don’t always have an easy time of it in Chicago, but Sapna’s looking out for you, telling you about things like Takito Kitchen’s unbelievable black bean and kale tacos.

Van has a serious case of wanderlust, and we’re glad we get to follow along on her ride through the city (like this Filipino breakfast at Uncle Mike’s Place in West Town).

buns

@MushroomStew

We’re not quite sure whether we follow her for the pugs or the gorgeous photos of her food. Either way, we love both.
