Anyone else despise food being served like this?
Here in London nearly every restaurant does this. It was probably the biggest insult in my life having my food served to me in half a wellington boot or having my chips served in a little metal basket (which allows the chips to touch the filthy table below it). There's really nothing more humiliating than the giggling as people stare at your culinary abortion presented before you and then degrade yourself as you eat out of a fucking dog bowl, dust pan, boot, mirror or whatever they can think of. It's pretentious and embarrassing.
I've made a habit of taking these non plates home with me. If I take enough of them home hopefully restaurants will have to resort back to using normal plates.
