Inspirational Instagram – Calvin-Aung Myin Thu

Calvin-Aung Myin Thu is first and foremost a food photographer. His work is eye-catching and will make your mouth water. With an Instagram follower count of more than 94 thousand, it’s obvious I’m not the only one who enjoys his photography.

The images he shares always inspire me to read his captions so I can discover what restaurant or chef created the mouth watering morsels in front of Calvin’s lens. So far, in my explorations of his feed, I have not been disappointed.

The food accounts I follow on Instagram inspire me. If I see any creative dishes posted by other food pages, I will request restaurants in Yangon to make it for me so that I can take photos. – Calvin-Aung Myin Thu

Calvin’s goal, in his own words, is to “Capture drool-worthy images.” I recommend heading over to his Instagram page to see for yourself.

Calvin is a Myanmar native and until very recently, lived his whole life in Yangon. As a parting gift to his followers in Yangon, Calvin took the time to list all the restaurants he took photos at and reviewed.The list is extensive and yet only scratches the surface of all that Yangon has to offer. Check out the list below, how many have you eaten at?
