14 times restaurants lost the run of themselves in 2015
What a year it has been.

2015 HAS SEEN the rise and rise of ludicrous plate substitutions in restaurants everywhere.

And with thanks to Twitter crusaders @WeWantPlates, these horrors are being documented on a daily basis:

1. There was this clipboard/plate monstrosity


2. And a place that served sambos on tennis racquets

3. Often, it can be confusing

4. That time fake newspaper was deemed to be the perfect accompaniment

5. Never forget the dessert that was served on a rusty saw

6. The mini shopping trolley happened in 2015

7. And this trowel was all sorts of wrong

8. The soup in a stiletto arrived to this table

9. And the glass + slate combo looks here to stay

10. Actual clogs were used as vessels for food here

11. That time a full sink was planted in front of someone

12. In one place, the flat cap had a comeback

13. And there was that time the chef was too busy to make the food so it was plopped right on the slate instead

14. And finally, the place that served its desserts on a piece of wood that just wasn’t designed for liquid at all

What next?
