The chef craze in Montreal has gotten out of hand. So much so, that many of you actually let your food get cold at restaurants because you HAVE to post the absolute perfect Instagram picture... of food... that you didn't make. Okay guys, let's face it, very few of us are chefs or photographers, so sadly, the pictures we post are probably sub-par smartphone quality, and for no better reason than to show off what your eating to the vast amount of strangers who follow your Instagram account.
Instead of publishing the calories you intake, I suggest following these insanely good Montreal chefs to let them post delicious food pictures for you. This way you can go to bed while scrolling your food filled Instagram feed as you also swipe right -or left- on Tinder, DM your crush and FB stalk your ex. Yeah, we all do it. No shame.
