We Want Plates is the hilarious Twitter account and website that brings together some of the worst food plating disasters seen in restaurants around the world. We've written about them before on the site and they just keep getting better and better. Seemingly, some chefs just haven't learnt their lesson.
Here, we've collected 39 of the worst food plating ideas ever from We Want Plates – some are a little misguided, some outright bizarre, and others well, possibly illegal, certainly unhygienic. Would you like to eat your breakfast from a dog bowl? No, thought not.
Once you've stopped laughing you'll be sitting there in a state of disbelief, wondering how on earth these chefs thought these food plating ideas would work – that was our reaction at least.
