Instagram has been such a big part of our lives nowadays that we always find the need to share every little interesting thing that we see to our followers. Whether it be the last adventure that you had, your cute #ootd, or just a fun night out with friends, a post on Instragram is always there to follow. This is why were always on the lookout for the next best restaurant or a hole in the wall that nobody knows about yet. Whether it be famous restaurants or not so famous ones, this list is here to help you plan your next photogenic food trip!

 1  Rustic Mornings

Rustic Mornings gives you a certain vibe as if you're not actually in Manila and that you're somewhere far from the busy city, enjoying heartwarming breakfast food. The rural design of the place, as well as the little details around the area, adds to its charm.


Location: #11 Isabelo Mendoza St. San Roque, Marikina City.

 2  CO/OP

You don't have to go in to see how Instagram-worthy this place is. CO/OP is a lifestyle store and café that is filled with quirky and unique finds.

Location: 189 A. Mabini, Lungsod ng San Juan, Kalakhang Maynila.

 3  Le Petit Soufflé

The dishes at Le Petit Soufflé perfectly match the restaurant's design. As you may describe the food as colorful and animated, those adjectives can be used to describe the place as well. 

Location: 3rd Floor Century City Mall, Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City.

 4  Industriya Marikina

Before Industriya Marikina became what it is now, it used to be a shoe factory. There are fragments around the restaurant that help retain a piece of its past which also adds to its appeal.

Location: 23 M. A. Roxas St, Marikina, 1801 Metro Manila.

 5  Susi: The Key to Sustainable Living

Susi is an all-vegan and gluten-free based restaurant by Bianca Mabanta. The wooden paneling as well as the DIY features create the perfect environment where you can enjoy their healthy and fulfilling meals.


Location: Burgos Circle, Forbes Town Center, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila.

 6  12/10

12/10, despite it being a restaurant, can easily pass as an art gallery. Their beautifully curated dishes, accompanied by the perfect lighting, makes it one of the best Instagram-worthy restaurants.

Location: 7635 Guijo St., San Antonio Village, Makati.

 7  The Girl + The Bull

We thought The Girl + The Bull couldn't get any better, and then their renovation happened. Thankfully, their fried chicken as well as their faux twix are still on the menu. But the revamping is definitely an added bonus as to why you should check this place out ASAP!

Location: #346 Aguirre Avenue, BF Homes, Parañaque.

 8  Señor Pollo

Aside from the mouth-watering chicken that they're famous for, what sets Señor Pollo apart is its interiors. Dee Jae Paeste's graffiti murals surround the place, giving the whole joint a lively and colorful vibe.

Location: 5767 Ebro Street (near Kalayaan Avenue), Makati City.


 9  Your Local

Your Local is considered a hidden gem because of the fact that it's a little bit difficult to spot. Although once you have, the countless amounts of U-turns and wrong directions will be worth it. Every dish is like an artwork, that a thousand pictures of it will never suffice. They may even be too good to touch but are definitely too good to pass up as well!

Location: 106 Esteban, Legazpi Village, Makati, Kalakhang Maynila.

 10  Salcedo Saturday Market

Technically, the Salcedo market isn't a restaurant but it does have great food! What's interesting about this place is that you'll never know what you'll be able to find. The market itself looks like any other outdoor market but what's Instagram-worthy about this place is its interesting and unique goods!

Location: Jaime C. Velasquez Park, Salcedo Village, Makati, Metro Manila.
