For D.C. area natives, Justin Schuble posts about the latest and greatest meals that he’s found. As the capital of the United States, D.C. is a multicultural political hotbed.

You never know what you’re going to see, whether it’s a barbeque street fair or a mainstream staple like Georgetown Cupcake, but it is undoubtedly going to make you salivate.

Just looking at this Instagram page will make your stomach rumble. Featuring some of the most appetizing (and fattening) dishes you’ll have seen today, NYCFAT is worth a follow just for how good the food that they post looks alone. A lot of New York staples like delicatessen and pizza are given attention, but they also have some great looking pastas. A recent attention grabber was one of the more interesting dishes featured, “seared scallops and avocado yuzu over cauliflower rice.”
