When you go out with your friends, your significant other, (or why not, by yourself!) you’re only looking to eat some great food and unwind for a couple of hours. Sometimes you’re only looking for a place that serves good food and isn’t too expensive. But when it’s time to go to a restaurant, there seems to be a trillion options to choose from. That’s one of the many reasons why restaurants are trying to impress us with the elaborate way they’re serving their dishes. And while we do admire the fact that they’re trying something new, it kind of seems like they’re trying so hard, that the dishes ended up being way too goofy, even for the most pretentious of customers.But what is it half full of? Ramen noodles and beer? While the restaurant does get extra brownie points for trying, we’ll say this is just a big glass of NOPE.
While these little cheese appetizers look deliciously sinful, the price to pay when you grab them is a bit too much. Ouch!
Seriously though, bear traps and burgers don’t mix, have never mixed, and they will never mix. So stop trying to make bear trap burgers happen, it is not going to happen.
The little scallop on top seems to be small enough to leave you wanting more, but the skull it was being served on? Well, that might throw you off food forever!
But this lovely little gimmick probably comes with a price tag, as the fancier it looks, the more you’re going to end up paying. Is it really worth it?
Imagine going into this zucchini, beef, and mix of greens salad and accidentally cutting yourself with that busted down can of Coke? No thanks!
Maybe they’ve run out of plates?
This creepy fish skin dish is scary enough to throw you off seafood forever, as it’s being served on a taxidermy piranha. Is this what nightmares are made of?
Do you care to find out how they did it? Neither do we! This one’s just super cool!
Having to get a tetanus shot after eating them off a tinfoil can.
This bizarre creation is being served in an ashtray with sesame ash that seriously makes it look like the real deal.
Apparently, these are fried ravioli getting served on a clothesline, because duh! The chef was running out of ideas, evidently.
Well, according to a Reddit user, the same tiles could be seen in the bathroom. Speechless!
Still, when you’re enjoying a nice plate of cheeses and meats, the last thing you want to look at is a weird mouse sculpture that looks like it just died 10 minutes ago.
There’s no way that placing all this delicious seafood didn’t end up tasting like the toolbox it got served on. Why ruin a good thing?
That’s an apple pastry dessert that is being served on an image of a plate…but wait! What’s that underneath the image of a plate? A freaking iPad. Wow.
But what is this dish? It looks like grilled or roasted chicken that for some reason is sunbathing…near two eggs that are suspiciously uncooked. But this one’s definitely a culinary adventure!
While it is somewhat shaped like a pizza, we can’t help but wonder…where’s the crust?
We know there’s some sort of sauce inside, but seriously, syringes and tinfoil cans don’t mix, y’all!
Caviar is fancy, but among the many beautiful plates and dishes they could’ve used to serve it, how did a wooden hand end up being the winner?
This dessert looks so much like the real deal, that you could’ve left it in the garden and no one would’ve been tempted to take a bite.
Seriously, sometimes less is more, guys!
Somehow, we don’t think 2007 Britney would not be too into this shot.
This restaurant is going for that “prison cafeteria-chic” style that’s trending pretty much…NOWHERE!
Thankfully, this restaurant is just serving steak and mashes potatoes inside this tiny martini glass, but hey! At least their tiny portions help you stay on your diet.
We would’ve immediately asked for plates, Coke cans, tiles, anything other than eating off the table. Yikes.
They mixed a little bit of witchcraft and meringue to come up with these floating meringue fingers on pillow. Seriously impressive. Almost too pretty eat, don’t you think?
They should refrain from making their dishes so hard to eat. This dessert was served in a glass head that was so inaccessible, it had to be eaten with long spoons.
But this restaurant thought they’d leave a nice impression if they served their drinks on measuring glass cups… did it work? Well, it’s on social media so….perhaps, they knew what they were doing.
Seriously, who comes up with these? The smell of rubber must’ve taken away the lovely aroma from the flowery decorations on this healthy-looking salad. We get it guys, you’re so creative! Now let’s go back to regular plates, please!
