Are These Hipsters Ruining the Restaurant Industry?

If you want your sandwiches on plates and your drinks in cups, you're gonna have a bad time.

Have you ever gone to a restaurant and wondered "What the hell were they thinking?" Well, there's a subreddit for that!

We Want Plates crusades against the serving of food on bits of wood and roof tiles, chips in mugs and drinks in jam jars.

It's good to get creative in the kitchen, of course, but these chefs and restaurant owners have crossed way too many lines. Here are 27 of our favorite ridiculous FML-worthy food and beverage presentations from r/wewantplates!

 

My food came in a bag from WeWantPlates

Other redditors defended this one as the traditional way to do a "boil" but I don't understand why they wouldn't just dump it into a dish after cooking it.

 

I'm speechless from WeWantPlates

This one's plated but still... Atrocious.

 

My pizza came on a floor tile... from WeWantPlates

I'm too worried about calling this thing a pizza to think about what it's sitting on...

 

Is that thing dishwasher safe? from WeWantPlates

This one actually looks kind of fun... but also pricy.

 

What if I want to start with the burger? from WeWantPlates

...or the fries? What then???

 

Taco in a milkshake cup, a little known Mexican food delicacy from WeWantPlates

I haven't seen anything this unattractive and impractical since my 12-year-old self tried to wear high heels for a middle school chorus concert.

 

Pasta carbonara in a wax paper bag from WeWantPlates

The limp sprig of thyme really ties it all together.

 

Kids "plates" for our recent event... from WeWantPlates

It's like Andy and April!

 

Strawberry Gelatin served à la carte sur Maxi Pad from WeWantPlates

This is apparently from a restaurant in Tokyo that does all kinds of crazy presentations. Here's another page from their menu:

This scotch egg served in a trophy from WeWantPlates

Ok this one actually made me really happy.

 

Appetizers and a whole chicken, over a glass... from WeWantPlates

A whole chicken??? Are you kidding me???

 

And last, but certainly not least, the pièce de résistance:

 

All that for A strawberry cut in half. from WeWantPlates

He looks just as confused as we are.

Thanks for reading, guys!

Me: “I didn’t know Strawberry Gelatin leaves such big red stains behind.” Waiter: “I’m sorry ma’am, we ran out of maxi pads, so I had to use my wife’s old ones. I hope you liked the unique flavor.”

Mhm. When wannabe in-restaurants are so deep into decorating their servings that they totally forget about taste or practicability. Really guys, a nice meal on a simple, clean plate is enough to make people happy.
