Food vlogging in Bangladesh can be considered as one of the most growing industries in the YouTube sector. In the last 5-6 years, the food industry of Bangladesh has grown the most, and thanks to all the food vloggers and reviewers on different social media.
Bengali people have always been considered food lovers since the Mughal and Nawab periods. In the 90s fast food started to get hyped in the youth but back then there were not many restaurants or shops to visit for a quick bite.
Back then they had only a few shops like a Swiss bakery, Hotel Purbani. But, things started to change after 2010 when international chains like KFC, Pizza hut, Nandos started to come to Bangladesh and there were also local brands that were started to gain popularity like BFC, Helvetia.
But still, the concept of going out for a fine dine or a hangout was only limited to Chinese restaurants.
In the span of the last 7-8 years the food restaurant industry in Bangladesh took a huge turn as a lot of youth entrepreneurs started to invest in this field.
People nowadays just don’t go after food. They want an experience; good food, good ambiance, and value for money.
This is where the food vloggers play the part by showcasing their videos to the audience and attracting them.
What a food vlogger does is that they go and explore new restaurants in the town and give a proper review of the place by uploading videos on different social media especially YouTube and by this they generate their money.
Sometimes the food vloggers get invited by the restaurant owners and also get paid to showcase their restaurants to the respective audience this is called a paid review.
In this article, you will get to know about the top 5 food vloggers of Bangladesh that must need to be followed if you are a food lover.
