The photo-sharing social network Instagram has just widened its addicting potential by making member profiles visible on the Internet instead of only via mobile apps. This means that we can enjoy widescreen food porn from some of San Francisco's leading tech-savvy chefs. These are the top five who consistently make us drool:

5. David Bazirgan

The executive chef at Fifth Floor offers glimpses of behind the scenes woes (i.e. the front of the house always loads up their staff meal plates first with the biggest quantities), produce freaks of nature (i.e. phallic carrots), and intricate new dishes. If you're following him on Instagram, you also get bonus cute baby boy photos of his smiley son.

4. Richie Nakano

Following Hapa Ramen's leader gives you the first peek at new ideas and his always-sassy Ferry Building specials board; last week's Election Day board offered "fuel to help kick Mitt in his giant face," for example. Nakano also sneaks in some cute kid photos in there as well.

3. Brandon Jew

Bar Agricole's chef documents his adventures behind the stove and in other restaurants where he is the customer. Lately, he's been fond of posting collages that illuminate his crew's process in breaking down whole animals.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
