10 Favourite Food Photos

Chocolate Cake

I’ve often been asked to share my secrets of food photography, but to be completely honest, there is really no secret to taking good photos. You just need to practice more and find your own style.

Today, let me share with you 10 of my favourite food shots. Do leave a comment and let me know which is your favourite photo.

For those of you who are on pinterest, you can also check out some of the popular pins on ladyironchef posted by other readers.

The cover photo for this post is taken during a shoot for a client. I love it because I composed it from scratch, and I managed to get a very nice shot of it.

Salt Grill

I do not mind eating salad everyday if they are as pretty as Salt Grill’s Salad – seasonal baby vegetables, slow poached egg, buffalo mozzarella, walnuts.

Brasserie les saveurs

I know this is not a food shot, but it is one of my all time favourite photos. Brasserie Les Saveurs at The Regis is easily one of the most romantic restaurants in Singapore. If you ever go there for champagne brunch, I think you will fall in love with it too.

Best custard bun

A good custard bun (also known as Liu Sha Bao) has soft pillowy dough which is filled with egg custard and salted egg yolk. Taste Paradise’s version has it all – definitely one of the best custard buns in Singapore.

Pierre Hereme Macarons

Who needs love when you can have macarons from Pierre Herme?

Baked Lobster

“EAT ME!” That was the first thing on my mind when I saw the lobster at Don Quijote Spanish Restaurant.

Mandarin Grill

The flower pot salad from Mandarin Grill in Hong Kong is one of the most stunning things that I’ve ever eaten.

Max Brenner Chocolate Cake

A really good chocolate lava cake from Max Brenner. The picture tells you everything.


There is only one word to describe the ├ęclairs from Chihuly Lounge (The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore) – wow! I posted this photo on instagram and it received more than 500 likes within the first hour. The best part is, they taste as good as they look.


I am not a fan of ravioli, but the one that I had at JAAN Restaurant – with organic hen egg, artichoke, melanosporum truffle – was phenomenal. And of course, it was a bonus that the dish was beautifully plated.
