68 Of The Worst Dishes That Shouldn't Exist Yet Someone Had The Audacity To Serve Them, As Shamed On This Instagram Page (New Pics)
If you’re eating something right now, the best thing to do would be to stop right now before scrolling down any further. Trust us, Pandas, what you’re about to witness might really turn your stomach and ruin your appetite for a sizable chunk of the day. Done? Good, let’s go.
One Instagram page has its finger on the pulse when it comes to the most disgusting dishes to ever be made. It’s not just the horrifying visuals—the ingredient combos are mind-meltingly bad, too. And we’ve collected some of the very worst offenders to share with you. It’s one giant warning of what not to cook. Ever! Oh, and don’t forget to share this brilliant project with all of your snacking coworkers, family members, and fellow students! We’re pretty sure they’ll thank you.
Got some room for a spot of ‘yummy’ dessert? No worries, we’ve got you covered. When you’ve ‘enjoyed’ this list to the fullest, have a nibble of Bored Panda’s earlier 'delish' post about the Instagram page right over here.

At the time of publishing, the notorious gastronomy page had 19.3k followers on Instagram. Slowly but surely, it’s been continuing to grow over the past year.
While we’d absolutely love to mention the name of the project, our social media and AI overlords frown upon certain words. So you’ll just have to click on the link and follow them on IG if you enjoy the type of aesthetically-challenged food pics that the project shares!
The profile photo used by the account’s founder really says it all, doesn’t it? Legendary TV chef Gordon Ramsay, staring off in the distance with a soulless look that practically screams disappointment, desperation, and disillusionment. It’s ‘fudge me, now I’ve seen everything’ encapsulated in a single pic.
We would absolutely love to hear Gordon’s comments about some of these dishes. Perhaps an honest critique (in a raised voice) might shake a few of these horrid amateur chefs into raising their standards. Though it’s doubtful that it’d work on everyone.

The last time that Bored Panda wrote about this IG project, the founder of the page opened up about the inspiration behind it, as well as the importance of balancing aesthetics and taste.
“Before I created this account, I was following many food pages on Instagram as well as subreddits on Reddit,” they said.

“Occasionally, there were posts that really looked disgusting and I thought to myself, 'Why not make a whole page about disgusting-looking food,'" the page founder told Bored Panda what finally drove them to take the first step and start posting weird and horrible food pics on social media.
"Many followers are sending me submissions about bad food, so that’s what makes me keep going," they said that the project is very community-driven. Followers are encouraged to engage with the page.
And the best submissions actually end up getting shared! So if you’ve spotted a terrible dish that you think might fit, Pandas, say ‘hi’ and send it to the founder. (Though be sure to check if it hasn’t already been posted before.)

According to the mastermind behind the Instagram account, it’s essential to find the right balance between the taste of the food and how the dish looks, aesthetically. "It’s a mix of how it looks, tastes, and costs," they shared that the appeal lies in these factors.

"For Instagram, how it looks is the most important one obviously. A dish could be the most delicious dish you’ve ever eaten, but if it looks bad it ruins everything, in my opinion. I think most people think this way too,” they noted that when it comes to posting on social media, obviously, you have to focus on how everything looks.

History is no stranger to bizarre food items. We’ve covered some of the most peculiar vintage items before on Bored Panda. And though many of these dishes might make you raise an eyebrow (or two if we’re honest), it doesn’t mean that all of them taste bad.

Professor Nathalie Cooke, from McGill University, pointed out that taste combinations like savory and sweet (found in tuna waffles, as well as in ham and bananas) are familiar to modern tasters as well. Meanwhile, sweet and sour combos (like may with lime) are also something that technically work… even if the aesthetics of it all might make us want to run for the hills!
