There’s no shame in ordering a menu item “just for the photo” — trust us, we’ve been there. In fact, the hashtag #food has nearly 300 million photos on Instagram, so you’re definitely not alone in snapping a pic of your meal before chowing down. We believe that visually appealing foods are just as good, if not better and the presentation of a dish can truly enhance the mealtime experience. That’s why we’ve curated a few unique ideas of totally Instagram-worthy dishes to serve up at your next special event (all with the help of Off the Grid Catering, of course!):

Bonito Poke

The name pretty much says it all. Not only is each bowl is packed with the highest-quality organic, biodynamic and all-natural ingredients, but these poke bowls are just downright good-looking. Each creation is served in transparent bowls so that you can see each and every single layer of eye-catching, colorful poke goodness — you may even hesitate before diving in to eat, in order to preserve your beautiful masterpiece of fresh vegetables, noodles, rice and endless toppings. This is NOT your average grab-and-go poke bowl, and Bonito Poke is sure to be a huge hit (not to mention, something quite out of the ordinary!) at your next corporate function or special event.

The Grilled Cheez Guy

Imagine sinking your teeth into a sandwich overflowing with gooey cheese, loaded with toppings and toasted to perfection – the Grilled Cheez guy is everything that a professional selfie-taker could ask for. These savory, melt-in-your-mouth grilled cheese creations are the perfect meal to share (or not to share!) with your work fam — and they are sure to get the Instagram likes rolling in.

Take your pick of havarti, mozzarella, brie, cheddar or gouda (just to name a few) and toppings that you couldn’t have envisioned in your wildest dreams. The combinations are seemingly endless, and everyone at your event is sure to find something cheese-tastic that they can’t help but photograph, especially when paired with a scrumptious side of soup.

You simply can’t go wrong with serving Tai Chi Jianbing at your next event – or should we say, at your next feast.  Get your special event trending with this unique menu item (and soon-to-be global sensation) that can’t help but please everyone’s tastebuds.
