These places will unleash your inner photographer – get snapping!

It is true when they say “our phones need to eat before we do”, all thanks to the social media phenomenon we’ve come to know as “Insta-worthy”, where eateries, bars and cafes in our city need to be more than just a delicious menu.

Keeping up with the phenomenon, we’ve compiled a list of four eateries with extraordinary interiors that will be sure to enhance your next meal.

BRYCG New Orleans Cuisine, Ampang

With BRYCG’s (pronounced bridge) motto being, “Bridging cultures the New Orleans way”, your attention will be drawn to their bridge beams arching over you as you savour their hearty gumbo and jambalaya.

Accompanied by brick walls, dark wooden furniture and more beams, the urban industrial vibe that we love comes together perfectly – making it perfect for Instagram postings.

Chocha Foodstore, Petaling Street

Cho Cha’s exterior is disguised as a prewar shophouse, formerly known as ‘Mah Lian Hotel’ and even now, you’ll see that much of the hotel’s original decor are preserved.

Peeling walls and vintage glass lamps also add to the old world charm as you sample their Asian soul food and sip their range of teas.

And for you food photographers, their courtyard seating area lined with pots of green will be your most strategic spot as you’ll get all the natural sunlight you need for that #foodporn shot.

PS150, Petaling Street

From teatime at Cho Cha’s, we now take you into the night for PS150 – a much-loved cocktail bar in Chinatown and just right next door to Chocha.

In here, be greeted with old world Indochine charm of vintage sepia-toned portraits, hanging Chinese umbrellas and even an Opium Den (with no real opium of course), all cloak in dim red lights.

As if bringing us into a romantic Wong Kar Wai production (think Chungking Express), this sensual and vigorous setting makes the perfect spot for vintage-esque photo shoots.

Stubborn Joe Café, Petaling Jaya

Branding themselves as a design café, Stubborn Joe offers infinite possibilities for Instagram-worthy shots – where do we even start?

For starters, sit by their construction blueprint walls to toy with their extendable shower head wall lamps and then maybe request for the private area to admire their hand-sketched KL city mural.

Better yet, lounge on plush sofa chairs by the wooden manikin wall and snap away. Like we said earlier, the choices are limitless!

Common Man Roasters Coffee, TTDI

And finally, we have a new player in town that has rocked the foodie scene this past month – Common Man Coffee Roasters.

An extension from its Singaporean founder, Common Man boasts of a Titanic-inspired interior that has everyone in awe, especially the architectural coffee counter.

With plenty of natural lighting, a wall of Titanic-esque photos and chic decor, this is the new favourite among fashionistas. Side note, even the surrounding area of the cafe is completely #Instaworthy.
