Now more than ever, Canadians love eating at restaurants — and if Instagram is any evidence of it, they love taking pictures of what's on their plates, too.
After all, what better addition can be made to your social media feed than you, having a blast, eating something delicious?
As the Globe and Mail recently noted, more and more restaurants are creating "dishes that photograph well and encourage a performance, designed to create buzz that reaches far beyond the envious diners at the next table."
There's the Ziggy Stardust Disco Egg at La Banane in Toronto, over-the-top milkshakes at The Street Eatery in Calgary, and the sundae surprise for two at Vancouver's Ebo. We've even been asked if we'd like to take a picture before the server starts tossing our salad (looking at you, Susur Lee).
But the question that's crossed our mind more than once is exactly which restaurants are getting all the 'gram love, and fortunately, in honour of Canada 150, the social media giant has the answers for us.
Take a look at the most Instagrammed restaurants across Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto. Whether it's because of what's on the menu or the spot's iconic status, here's where you'll find people scrolling through filters and getting the best 'gram possible.
