If you’re like me, you’re always on the lookout for new restaurants and food experiences in Austin Texas… and one of the best tools to keep tabs on what all your  foodie friends are eating is Instagram.

Everyone knows that Instagram is great for sharing pictures, but for me the best way to find new people and restaurants is by taking advantage of hashtags.

So, What are some of the best Austin Food hashtags to use and follow?

Two that I like a lot are:

Besides the benefits of finding new food, there’s an added bonus of getting more exposure for your social media accounts… especially when using #Austin360Eats.

Addie Broyles of the Austin American Statesman created this hashtag a while back…  and every week she likes to feature the Austin food and the people behind the hashtag.

Recently myself (@supertsai) and @mjsoko were featured in the Relish Austin blog for our photos from Taqueria La Escondida and the brand new Patika coffee bar on South Lamar (one of our new favorite spots).  If you want to be featured too, just tag all of your food photos on Instagram with #Austin360Eats.
