Welcome to an online community of globetrotting foodies.
Honest Food Talks is an independent media outlet founded in 2019 that aims to help people discover new recipes, kitchen hacks, F&B entrepreneurs, events and venues.
Founded by Victoria Yap, Honest Food Talks started as a small Asian food blog reviewing London restaurants and sharing interesting recipes. Fast forward to today, Honest Food Talks has a growing monthly readership of 600,000+ based in the UK and the US.
Our mission at Honest Food Talks
Created by foodies for fellow foodies, we set out this online portal with three aims; to increase coverage of local hidden gems, provide frank reviews and source the most authentic recipes.
Honest Food Talks researches the latest food trends and local delicacies. Our dedicated team writes and edits in-depth reviews of restaurants, cafes, and bars that we find intriguing (and hope you do too).
But most importantly, we never mince our words or shy away from our honest opinion about a particular place, whether it is good or bad. It is our motto to talk truthfully about food, 食话食说 (Shí huà shí shuō).
Our work is often recognised and cited by peers in the industry. We have previously been featured on Yahoo, Mirror UK, EliteDaily, Tatler, Morning with Kaye Adams on BBC Radio Scotland, Taiwan News and many more for our easy-to-understand recipes, dedicated research and insightful commentary on food trends and Asian culture.
Who Are We?
Our core team of international writers are located in Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and the UK. All of our writers have the same aim to give our readers the best food and drink recommendations.

Join Our Community
To give back to the community, we aim to give exposure to lesser-known restaurants. Above all, we want to provide a platform for fellow foodies to express their views and write about the topics they love most, food.
We hope that as our community of globetrotting foodies grows, we will feature more restaurants, interviews, recipes, product reviews and guides on our online portal. Sign up for our monthly newsletter to stay up to date with the latest foodie news, giveaways and restaurant offers.
