#FoodPorn: 15 Mouthwatering NYC Foods You Don't See on Instagram (But Really Should)

This isn't another article on New York City's "craziest" foods, because let's be real, how many times can we read about that damn Cronut, those mundane Magnolia cupcakes, or that wormy Ramen Burger?

But I'm not hating on them, because it's not very often that dishes in NYC make headlines.

All I would like to do here is to introduce some foods that deserve a little more Insta-credit because of their mouthwatering deliciousness.

And although not everyone is into Instagrammin' their food, there are millions who love doing so (just check out #foodporn if you don't believe me).

But for those people who love transforming the food in front of them into wonderful pieces of Insta-art, here are 15 foods you need to find, capture, and then devour as soon as humanly possible.

1. "Mac 'n Cheese Burger" at The Ainsworth (122 West 26th Street)

In fact, we're simply eggstatic about it.
