15 Things Fancy Restaurants Are Calling ‘Plates’

I love a good fancy meal as much as the next person, though as someone from the Midwest, I’m also thrilled to pull apart bbq ribs with my fingers or pay $3 for a giant corndog fried in a tent.

Second, is that granite? Poutine goes in a basket, my friend.

Was looking for food on ubereats and a local restaurant dares call this poutine. I immediately mentally banned this place.

It’s technically a food holder (plate) and a food delivery system all in one.

7. His face is all of our faces.

What the hell is happening here. You cannot have sauce without a bowl.
