There's a fine line between being creative and ridiculous, and even some of the best restaurants have passed it. I get it, competition in the food service is high. You need to think outside the box to attract more customers than that Turkish Kebab joint with questionable sanitary conditions around the corner. But that doesn't mean you have to embellish your dining sets with cocktails served in an actual umbrella. Or fried chicken on a sunbathing chair with kitchenware sticking out. Bored Panda has already shown you the 10+ Times Restaurants Went Too Far With Food Serving, but we've found so many more absurdly funny fails encountered while eating out, we just couldn't resist from making a successor list. Continue scrolling, check out the most hipster things that food has ever been served on, and upvote your favorites!

Sometimes words can't convey how you feel when you see something so stupid. This is one of those times.

This looks like an art piece instead of a salad. This is a Salart. This will be a thing now. I invented Salart.

Nop, you aren't in jail, in India most people eat in steel plates like the one in this picture even in some local restaurants they serve good in such plates, it is perfectly normal and honestly stainless steel utensils are best!
