Instafood of the Year 2016! 15th to 20th place
Instagram has completely become the go-to communication platform for foodies all over the world. Various delicious-looking food photos have adorned our timelines this year as well. In this post, TokyoTableTrip shall rank the most impressive food on Instagram. Let’s have a look back at 2016 with these mouthwatering-looking food photos that will make you want to have a bite at once.
20th Shiawase no Pancake “Shiawase no Pancake”
This soufflé pancake has captured the hearts of nearly all females that visit Tokyo. The image of the thick and syrupy-looking pancakes stacked against each other garnered a huge reaction on Instagram. The original whipped butter, made by mixing cultured butter and manuka honey, that is served with the pancakes here is also an absolute delight. It is indeed as its name “Pancake of Happiness” describes, as a smile will escape from your lips with every bite.
19th Uni Murakami “Additive-free Uni Don”
In 19th place is this restaurant in the popular tourist destination in the north, Hokkaido. The donburi with lots of uni (sea urchin) on top of white rice makes the perfect picture. This is a restaurant that is operated directly by a sea urchin processing factory, and the quality here is guaranteed. It is slightly pricey (4,320 yen), but enjoying lots of sweet uni without any additives as a donburi is definitely an experience that can only be found in Hokkaido, where it is produced.
18th Henry’s Burger “Henry’s Burger”
This is a wagyu beef burger made with the help of the yakiniku restaurant Sumibi Yakiniku Nakahara, that is widely popular among foreign tourists as well. This generated much talk on Instagram when the restaurant opened in summer. The patty, made from only wagyu beef without using any other fillings, is minced coarsely, giving it a solid and substantial texture. The burger enthusiasts looking at TokyoTableTrip should definitely have a go at this amazing burger full of meaty goodness instead of going to Shake Shack.
17th Yakiniku Jumbo Hanare “Tenderloin Takikomi Gohan”
This is a reservation-only special menu available at the super popular yakiniku restaurant located behind Tokyo University. The soft tenderloin meat cooked together with the rice in vegetable bouillon looks simply mouthwatering, and has become one of the signature dishes on the menu with its appearance on Instagram. For those wanting to visit, don’t forget to request for this dish when making your reservation!
16th yorgo “Beef Tenderloin Rare Katsu”
This restaurant from the land of food in the west of Japan, Fukuoka has made its way to our list. You just know that this will definitely be good by looking at the photos of the soft tenderloin katsu served with a thick sauce. The staff at TokyoTableTrip have actually yet to try this dish. We have to try it asap in 2017…
