Abstract: Sundanese cuisine names are popular in everyday social interactions as well as social media, with Instagram being one of them.

All Sundanese food names used in this research are related to certain meals. This paper employs a qualitative method that deals with words, not numbers. The results show that blending is the most dominant type in the findings. It indicates that blending is mostly used by Instagram users in their posts.
