Plating can make or break a meal; no matter how tasty the food it’s not a fine dining experience without an exquisitely plated dish. Restaurants world over have jumped on the plating bandwagon and try to outdo each other with interestingly plated fare. However, some plating styles are completely impractical while others are just flat out weird. Hence, a Twitter handle @wewantplates was created to mock restaurants that have taken whimsical plating a little too far. Here are some of the strangest tweeted to and by the account.
1) Bread in Shoes
I don’t want my bread where my feet go. Is that really asking too much?

2) Bread in a cap
A little better, but still no.

4) Salad in a plant pot
If this is how it is maybe we should just stay at home and eat straight out of our gardens.
Ordered a side salad with dinner at the pub last night…Was given a pot plant, some scissors and an empty bowl. Wow. pic.twitter.com/H3bkQG2TiI

5) Cocktails in a Jar
This would make for some very sloppy drinking especially if you’re already a couple of cocktails down.

6) Eggs in a Skillet
Straight off the stove and onto the table. Height of laziness.

7) Cake with Sauce on a Board
This is so impractical.

8) Vegetables in a Marrow Bone
What about actual vegetarians that ordered this dish? What about them?!

9) Food on a Clothesline
Repeat after me. Clotheslines are for clothes. Plates are for food.

10) Pork Medallions in a Toilet Bowl
The only acceptable time your head should be anywhere near a toilet bowl is when you’re trying to ward of a hangover. Not while eating lunch.
