Cameras first, our stomach second — this is a typical day in the life of an Instagrammer. Instagram addicts, you’re in luck today! KKday explores New York City for 5 Instagrammable food that taste as good as they look, absolutely none of those overhyped food that makes you question your life decisions.
1. Rainbow Bagel @ Bagel Store
It seems like our own version of rainbow bagel left our sunny shores now that Hari Raya is over and Geylang Serai Raya Bazaar has packed up and gone. But the craze is far from over with the entire world is still obsessing over the rainbow bagel store in Brooklyn. Stuffed with cotton candy and cream cheese between the rainbow cake, this rainbow bagel is, in fact, a work of art that’s too beautiful to be eaten.
Address: The Bagel Store @ 349 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn
Opening hours: Mon to Sun: 7:00 – 17:00
2. Milkshake @ Black Tap
Milkshakes offered at Black Tap are not the typical ones you see on during your cafe-hopping trips. Elaborately decorated with candies, biscuits and snacks, these calorie-laden milkshakes here are not for those watching their diet! Popular flavours include The Cookie, Cotton Candy and Sweet N’ Salty.
Address: 529 Broome St, New York, NY 10013, United States
Opening hours: Mon to Sun: 11:30 – 00:00
3. 10Below Ice Cream
This eclectic place is god-sent for ice cream aficionados — New York’s first Thai-inspired ice cream rolls, 10Below Ice Cream is made on the spot hence, no preservatives or stabilisers are added!
With Thai ice cream stalls popping up everywhere in Singapore, why go all the way to the Big Apple for an Asian creation? What sets this store apart from the ones we have are the flavours offered, like Key Lime Pie, Matcha Made in Heaven and S’mores Galore.

4. Dough Doughnuts
Opened in December 2010, this establishment offers doughnuts of different kinds – yeast, doughka (twisted yeast loaves) and cake! Made in small batches daily to ensure optimum freshness, the brioche-type dough is then fried to perfection before it’s glazed in different colours. Not only does the glaze acts as a finishing touch, it also highlights the array of unique and gourmet flavours available. We recommend Hibiscus, one of the top favourites of many!
