20 Insane Dishes That Prove Instagram Has Ruined Food Forever

In the social media age, some people value sharing their experiences online more than simply enjoying being in the moment.

While there’s nothing wrong with documenting happy times and memories, I think many of us can agree that some take it way too far, especially when it comes to food. A quick search through Instagram yields thousands of images capturing pretty presentations of meals. Unfortunately, restaurants have caught on to this culture and taken an extra step to serve their dishes in increasingly creative forms — most of which don’t include regular dinnerware.

There’s no denying that these 20 unique dishes are interesting to look at, but it’s a safe bet to assume most customers would rather have simple plates.
