In the age of Instagram, food must not only taste good, it also has to be Insta-worthy. In Dubai, there’s no shortage of restaurants and cafes serving delicious food, but there are a few that set themselves apart from the rest by making their meals look as incredible as they taste. This way, Instagrammers can ensure that all their followers know their meal is #delicious.

This creative cafe serves delicious Mediterranean dishes that are worth your IG photography. However, what really makes Tub of Butter Instagram heaven is the fact that this home-grown restaurant offers coffee art like no other. Whether diners want to grab a coffee with Drake, Justin Bieber of Marilyn Monroe, Tub Of Butter baristas put the face of their favorite celebrity on the actual coffee. This exciting new trend has got everyone with their phones out and caffeine levels at an all-time high.

Black Tap‘s milkshakes definitely bring all the boys (and girls) to the yard — or to Jumeirah Al Naseem Hotel. This New York restaurant has recently come to Dubai and has made Instagram waves due to their beautiful milkshakes. Black Tap offers delicious burgers and craft beers, but diners must save space for dessert, as the colorful and creative shakes are not only mouth-watering, they are also picture ready.

This Indian molecular gastronomy restaurant hit Dubai at the end of 2016 and didn’t take very long to impress with its tasty vegetarian dishes. SpiceKlub Dubai originated in Mumbai and offers North Indian cuisine with a molecular twist. Most dishes here look like scientific experiments and make for great Instagram material, inciting curiosity and making followers feel excited to visit this new hotspot. After all, it’s not often that restaurants offer chocolate desert in the shape of a plant pot.

Dip N Dip

Let’s face it, no food is more photogenic than chocolate. This is why Dip N Dip is one of the best places to photograph desserts in Dubai. This chocolate cafe proves that everything tastes (and looks) better when dipped in chocolate. Although the cafe offers beautiful milkshakes, the chocolate dipped desserts take the cake. The blend of milk and white chocolate form a kind of painting that is pretty to look at and delicious to eat.


It’s not surprising that Armani Hotel would offer beautiful dishes. Being one of Dubai’s most popular hotels, Armani Hotel offers several restaurants with various cuisines and elegant yet delicious dishes. But it is Armani/Lounge that sets itself apart by offering a Golden Cappuccino. This cup of Joe is different from the rest as it is covered in 23 carat gold flakes, and will make anyone’s Instagram page a little shinier and more luxurious. The perfect way to illustrate a trip to Dubai.

Food doesn’t always need bells and whistles to make waves on Instagram — that’s definitely the case at SALT. The burgers and fries look so delicious that everyone is posting pictures with the hashtag #findsalt. This food truck proves that a good burger is beautiful no matter what, and the pictures will definitely leave everyone’s mouths watering.

It's the simple things in life that are the most enjoyable. Happy weekend, Salters! ✨🍔 #findsalt
