We Want Plates is a community of both regular people and dedicated foodies who are joining their forces to make restaurants serve food on actual plates, not on bits of wood and roof tiles. To do so, they are shaming all the ridiculous food presentations they are receiving online, and their crusade has made them quite famous.

Founded in 2015 by Ross McGinnes, We Want Plates already has 157K followers on Twitter, 100K on Facebook, and 30K on Instagram. However, the biggest unit of their army is located on Reddit — over 650K troops. I think it's safe to say that the growth of the project is a pretty good indication that restaurants should think twice before serving cured meat on a bone or pouring a cocktail into a baby bottle. At least I hope so.

They're trying to mimic a specific BBQ place that serves their sharing meals on a bin lid. But those are clean, and from what I can tell, specifically tweaked - no handle so it sits flat on the table properly like the oversized plate they are being used for.

This is the traditional way to drink Sake. Maybe they're going for a fusion thing. It is a silly thing to do for many drinks, but if woodiness is part of the flavour, it's a great option.
