88 Times Restaurants Went Too Far With Food Serving (New Pics)

What’s important is the quality of the food, not what it’s served on. Right? Wrong! Sometimes, when you’re at a fancy restaurant, waiters serve you food on such weird things and in such strange containers that you pay more attention to them than your dinner. Those are the times that it’s acceptable to bombard your friends with pictures of your food, instead of eating it.

There’s a whole community of people who have banded together to form the online group ‘We Want Plates.’ Their mission is all in their name — they want restaurants to serve food on actual plates, not on “bits of wood and roof tiles, chips in mugs and drinks in jam jars.” This is an internet community that loathes hipsterish trends, and “crusades” for the right to have their food brought to them on plates, as Mother Nature intended.

Keep scrolling and let us know in the comments what peculiar way of serving food you found to be the most amusing. Let us know if you’ve seen something even weirder! Remember to upvote your faves and share with your friends. And after you’re done, have a look at Bored Panda’s other lists about restaurants that have gone too far with food serving and trying to impress customers too hard. Some of these eateries are beyond saving, don’t you think?
