This week I read so many good articles and pinned so much delicious looking food, it was hard to narrow down the best links to share with you.

A ramen festival in Tokyo had a white table just for Instagramming bowls of ramen. Is this taking it too far?
Chat with me:
What is your biggest phone danger? Thoughts on food festivals having designated Instagramming areas? Are you leaving the house this weekend? What else did I miss this week?
