When thinking of food, what you’re craving is likely already satisfactory in taste. Even so, many of us may find ourselves looking for new recipes, finding new restaurants to explore, or simply just drooling over food we see throughout social media. One thing that simply makes that item look more appetizing is the aesthetic.
Whether it’s the photo angle, the way the food is set up, the silverware used, or just the cleanliness and neatness of the particular picture, this will most likely tempt the ones behind the screen to discover and want to devour that certain meal or snack. Here are seven aesthetically-pleasing Korean food spreads from Instagram!
