Watch Out, Hipster Restaurants Are Taking Things Way Too Far With Our Food

Owning or working in a restaurant is pretty crazy. Sure, you have to put up with customers, but you need the right people, menu, and a way to stand out from other food joints. Standing out is a great way to express yourself, and the restaurant industry is perfect for that.

It’s almost like a race to see who can create the most bizarre, yet intriguing idea when people bring food to your table.

Sometimes though, it seems like some people are thinking outside of the box. Hipsters are slowly changing the way people eat, and not always for the better.

It’s Prosciutto Barbie!

brokenankleZ/Reddit

I’ve heard rumors of putting shrimp on Barbie, but never prosciutto. I don’t know about you, but this is one of the most unappetizing meals of all-time. Like, is this supposed to be artwork for a restaurant?

Either way, five-year-old girls are going to have nightmares when they see this for the first time.

Broccoli Trees

juangutip/Reddit

Oh my, food that looks so much like the trees I drew in art class. As you can tell, I wasn’t the most artistic person. It’s like my least talented skill was brought to life for some odd reason.

But, I had crafty hands for things like gift wrapping and playing hockey.

You Okay Over There?

@JulieVis

It may take a while for you to open up about it. Someone was served this food in Cuba, and I have no idea why. Like, this could have been a new urinal, but it just lost its original purpose for good.

Come on, man, this clearly isn’t a good look.

Read ahead to see who thought it was a good idea to mock a Canadian DJ.

The Year Is 1800

hitorinetoyota/Reddit

That’s some grade A hipster try-hard stuff. It’s hard to disagree with the statement because some hipster went above and beyond like nobody else ever would. I would be shocked to see this as my bill.

But, I would be quick to ask “Is this the year 1800?”

Drinks Are A New Whole Challenge

I_Crush_Your_Head/Reddit

Serving food is easy, but bloody marys in a fry basket is a different story. Because any hipster will be like “Oh that’s different from any other mainstream restaurant!” I don’t think I would be happy that this is considered a bold move.

What’s next, gin and tonic in bucket hats?

Deadmau5

Realwomprat/Reddit

Ummm what? I understand the scenario with the rat and cheese, but there’s no need to mock the Canadian DJ. Like, he can go off on a tangent sometimes, but that’s just apart of who he is.

The only acceptable time do this would be on Halloween, and that’s it.

What’s the deal with chips on hangers? You’ll find out soon enough about the weird story behind that.

The Pillow Was The Only Good Thing

Couldnt_think_of_a/Reddit

So really though, that’s a weird way to use a pillow. Some of the local hipsters in the nearby area may be all for it, but part of me is ready to nap after having a meal at this restaurant.

But, next time, this place needs levitating plates for an authentic look.

Butter Rock

unfrufru/Reddit

Toss away the butter dish because this rock has taken on a whole new use. For once, a rock with butter on top is the cherry on top for your breakfast. I’m sure whoever came up with this was fantasizing about this since they were a kid.

This could become the norm for butter.

What The…?

corkboy/Reddit

Okay, what’s with food and hangers? I don’t get it. This ruins clotheslines for me and for the next generation too. There always has to be someone who thinks “Oh you know what be could cool? Hanging food off things.”

It’s one of the most hipster things ever.

Uh oh, it looks like another restaurant just ahead is following suit on this idea!

Overcooked Much?

Lerrcey/Reddit

It’s hard to tell if the place you’re eating at is being nice or in a rush. It seems that they were in a hurry and the cook doesn’t know what over easy eggs are.

I would tell them to make it again because I wouldn’t pay to eat that.

The Upside Down Plate

Jotapeme/Reddit

At least the food is actually on the plate. It seems like a trick when it comes to portion control, but I feel like this restaurant is a ripoff. All they did was flip over a plate, and you’re supposed to eat this?

I’ll gladly eat a Big Mac instead.

Six Chips On Hangers

mmonzeob/Reddit

You’re going to lose your marbles if your order chips on a hanger. Also, that’s way too much sauce for six chips. You’d be lucky if you can dip an entire chip in there.

This is nothing but madness, and Gus Fring wouldn’t have this at Los Pollos Hermanos.

Have you ever seen food served on a shovel? You’ll see what I mean shortly.

Egg Cartons

anukka/Reddit

Well, it’s one way to save the environment, right? You’re using a used egg carton as something to hold onto the appetizers. There’s nothing wrong with this at all, but it will suck once the carton gets covered in grease.

Either way, more restaurants should follow suit on saving the environment.

Speechless

xiupng/Reddit

Is this a board game or food? It looks like a board game, and you could market this just in time for Christmas.

It sucks we can’t have nice things. Honestly, how are you supposed to eat any of this? This is just a mess waiting to happen.

Shovel Pizza

VivaanTheBlaze/Reddit

It’s not every day you walk into a restaurant and have food on a shovel. Hopefully, the shovel was handmade and not purchased from a gravedigger.

That would be so awkward to eat the food off of something that someone used to dig up a hole and bury people in.

The next one ahead may be a tribute to the X Games or Shaun White stopped by for a bite to eat.

Chips In A Dog Bowl

eszd/Reddit

The only way a place would do this is if they allow dogs. Most restaurants aren’t all for the ‘bring your pet’ thing unless you’re disabled, which is understandable. But, I can’t help but think that someone believes people are like dogs.

To be honest, they’re not because we’re all over the place.

Food On Tablets

itsjacques/Reddit

It’s no different than your kid after they’re done playing with the iPad. Now that I think of it, it’s pretty sad kids today get to have toys like this. In my day, we had bikes, scooters, and PlayStation 2.

This wouldn’t even be a thing if we were in the year 2002.

Snowboard Pizza

HarryFlashman1927/Reddit

I’m hoping this was at a snowboarding event like X Games. Other than that, I guess someone was looking for a place to park their snowboard. To be honest, I would eat this pizza, especially since it’s on something I enjoy doing.

But, it would cool to see Shaun White indulge on this too!

Foamy Cheese

TheSoulOfTheRose/Reddit

You can save money on plates when dining here. All you have to do to beat the system is to serve people cheese onto their hand. The gooey deliciousness will make them think twice before they walk into your food joint.

But, make sure the cheese is room temperature.

The Wheel Of Meat

Imgur

Vegans are going to be offended by this, only because there’s not one vegetable on this all-carnivore wheel. I’m sure other places have vegan wheels, but that sounds more hipster than anything else.

Although, this would be cool to witness at a state fair or something like that.
