The legendary 'We Want Plates' Twitter account has compiled the 10 worst ways restaurants served food in 2017

Make it stop.

IF YOU HAVEN’T come across the @WeWantPlates Twitter account before – it describes itself as leading:

And it does a stellar job.

How? By calling out restaurants for going way overboard on their pretentious and comical presentation of food. They do such a good job that they have a book out documenting the horror.

And yesterday they presented their top 10 worst examples from their 2017 collection
