Why would you serve chips on a log? To disguise a portion that would fit inside a cigarette packet? Because nothing says “tasty” like a tiny recreation of a freshers’ week piss-up? Or is it because no one’s been kind enough to say: “Dude! You work in a greasy spoon!”?

Restaurants across the world, have seemingly ditched the humble plate in favor of a variety of weird and wacky receptacles — putting the “tit” in bon appétit in the process. But the Internet isn’t letting them get away with it. We have compiled a list of 100 pics from restaurants who are trying to stand out by serving their food in something other than plates and in the process making their customers look like idiots while eating.
