What’s wrong with a plate? From crudités on barbed wire to sauce poured into a diner’s hands, snaps reveal restaurants’ VERY bizarre serving methods
From pieces of meat served between the pages of a book to spaghetti meatballs offered up in a martini glass, social media users have shared hilarious snaps of the odd ways restaurants have served food. The entertaining foodie pictures from across the globe, which were collated in an online gallery by Bored Panda, include a Barbie doll covered in ham, while another shows an upside down glass with a liquid cocktail concoction inside. Other bizarre snaps show a helmet with a bronze tongue that has a single truffle placed on top. Here are some of the strangest examples, including chicken wings on a garden shovel…
While the idea might have been to make dining more playful, a meat-covered Barbie doll really misses the mark.
This liquid ‘dessert’ not only doesn’t have an appropriate serving bowl, but the person serving decided to pour it all over their customer’s hands—at least she looks happy.
This helmet with a single circular food item is not only insanely big for the meal size, but wholly unnecessary too.
Sharing dinner with friends is lovely, but usually there are dishes involved. One has to hope this table is clean.
Barbed wire hors d’oeuvres anyone? This is certainly the most dangerous way to serve food, and it’s not sightly either.
An upside down glass of liquid presents a very awkward problem—leave your drink alone or get covered in it.
Well that’s one way to save on washing the dishes! Apart from the fact that this seems unsanitary, the frying pan looks quite used.
While this might be one of the milder restaurant contributions, icing the lid of a jar seems odd if not totally useless.
The spade option is one of the more widely known version of the plate replacement—but that doesn’t make it any more impressive.
Fish in a bottle anyone? This offering is one of the least harmful on the eyes, but good luck eating out of it without it rolling over.
Flying noodles? Or a great way to ensure your food gets cold before it arrives at your table?
How strange! These pieces of meat were wedged between the pages of a book at one restaurant.
Meatballs are always delicious, but serving them up in a martini glass is an odd look.
This huge spoon must have looked ridiculous on the way to the table, and the bets are on the server not enjoying carrying it over either.
