Restaurants love to be hip and trendy, but at what cost?
There are two types of people: those who photograph their every meal, and those who just eat the food. Food bloggers and amateur photographers alike love to snap pictures of what they’re dining on, and post photos to their socials for the whole world to admire. However, it’s not exactly original to post just a plain old hamburger. No, your followers want to see you eat the weirdest stuff, it must be eye catching. That’s the only reason I can fathom why these restaurants decided it’s okay to skip out on plates, and instead have their customers eat off shovels and rocks.
I really enjoy creative plating, but it should at least match the viscosity of the food you’re chowing down on. For example, ice cream gets melty, and anyone over the age of 5 can tell you it should go in a bowl. Common sense seems to go out the window for some restaurants — they’re really serving up ice cream on flat slabs. One place even put numerous scoops of ice cream in a “flight” on a flat surface. I can’t begin to imagine how the waitstaff and bussers must feel about tables who leave half eaten ice cream. It must drip everywhere! If you do work at a trendy Instagram-able place, keep the faith — these trends won’t last forever.
Up next, this woman was so annoyed at a hotel clerk that she tried to get her fired, but the clerk had a great idea for how to deal with the customer.
