Many diners were surprised with the presentation of their food.
Twitter user @WeWantPlates put together some of the most unusual ways restaurants serve it up for their customers. In an effort to stand apart from other businesses, some restaurants' entrees look appetizing with a side of whimsy, whereas others are far too ambitious and fail to make a connection with the hungry patron.
In no particular order, here are some very creative presentations. You decide which ones are the culinary triumphs, or the ones that won't make it into your belly.
1/15 Breakfast in a cup. I guess your coffee's on the plate.
3/15 Raspberry crumble, holding onto their title
4/15 When sausages commit acts of treason...you get to eat them.
5/15 In tonight's performance, the role of "Moss" will be played by "Wasabi."
6/15 For a balanced diet, all in one bite.
7/15 "Waiter, do you have the tater tots in my size?"
8/15 Just making it easier for the busboy after you finish eating.
9/15 When the chef makes you do the rest.
10/15 Literally from farm to table. What the "hay?!"
11/15 This is when tempura goes OUT of style.
12/15 From our mouth to yours!
13/15 There's nothing "reduction" about this vanilla sauce.
14/15 Ghost fork says that you must use your fingers instead.
15/15 Now they're just being redundant with the "dining at the table" concept.
Are you full? Or are these restaurants just full of themselves? Sometimes you just want to go in and have a decent meal and not be caught in the middle of the restaurant wars that are vying for your tweets and hashtags.
