10 Most Instagrammable Foods in Chicago

There’s an art to photographing food, and let’s be honest, not many of us are great at it. And, while it’s tempting to take a pic of your plate because you want to show the world just how delicious it all looks, it will probably just end up looking like you threw up all over your Instagram page.

Whether you want to share that greasy burger you already took a bite out of or your beer is catching the light just right, skip the mediocre shots. We’ve rounded up a few places with food so pretty that you simply can’t eff it up.


So, you’re welcome. Here is some really sexy Instagram food porn that’s going to make you eat lunch early today.



Glitter Lattes @ Werewolf Coffee

IT LITERALLY SPARKLES. And those are flower petals floating on top. All edible (I hope).



Unicorn Dreams @ Parlor Pizza Bar

It’s a like a taco but filled with miracles.


ANYTHING @ Gordo’s Homemade Ice Cream Bars

You’ll probably forget to take a pic first because it looks so good.


Treasure Chest @ Three Dots & a Dash

This seemingly endless drink is perfect for sharing with friends and on your social.


Monte Cristo @ Velvet Taco


I mean, it’s so pretty! How could you mess this up?


Cooler Chocolates @ BomboBar

My tooth already has a cavity from looking at this.


Frozen Strawberry Margarita @ Pink Taco

It’s served in a freaking pineapple. You’ll look like you’re on vacation.


The Mac @ Cheesie’s

I’m definitely hesitant before photographing any greasy foods, but I think this is the exception.


Salads @ Left Coast

I don’t even like salads, but this shit looks more enticing than candy right now.


Truly, Like, Anything @ Lost Lake

Most of their drinks come in exotic cups like this, so, yeah.
