30 Times Restaurants Tried Being Unique But Failed Miserably

Published 5 years ago

Much like people, businesses often strive to appear unique – after all, that’s what makes them stand out from the rest. And restaurants are no exception. However, sometimes restaurants get a little carried away when trying to appear unique, leading to some pretty confused customers.

People online are documenting the weirdest ways they’ve been served food in an online community called “We Want Plates” and it appears that nothing is too extreme for some restaurants. Fishbowls, shoes, urinals – turns out anything can be a plate if you’re brave enough.

Check out the weirdest ways people have been served food in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
