    It should be on the menu as "Roast for Pretentious Cunts who like High Tea and cakes, and also can't decide between beef and pork, but still want the yorkies just in case - with shit baton carrots and what looks like Aunt Bessie's roast potatoes"

    Or the customer who actually has to eat it.
    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    Who needs a plate for a curry when you've got a tray with a bit of a lip around it.
    This is our love, and it knows no division.

    That's the whole point.

    It is relatively easy (especially for a skilled chef) to create art in the presentation of food. ON A PLATE.

    This fucking nonsense is, most of the time, covering up other inadequacies in the chef by going to shock value and wow factor.

    Also a quick way to get people to notice your restaurant via social media. Get a dish that is served on something daft and it's across Facebook and Twitter very quickly.

    Not using plates is hardly new though. Loads of restaurants went down the piece of slate route years ago.

    I had a Thai chicken dish the other night that came out in a hollow pineapple. Didn't think to take a picture for the thread but as non-dishes go I thought that one was pretty tasteful.

    There's a place round here that does that. Can't think where it is but it was advertised on FB a couple of days ago. Supposed to be quite nice.

    What the fuck????

    Just seen the hollowed out pineapple one above as well. Squeeze had a thai curry served that way in a truly fucking sensational restaurant in Barbados on our anniversary a few years ago. It was the night when I said "bring the Dom Perignon" without even looking at the menu, and ended up nearly shitting myself at a bill of over £500 for the meal...

    Not bad with a Dom at an exlcusive hotel included! Must have had a posh meal deal on that night

    It was a nice restaurant down the road. Squeeze thinks the bill was more. Possibly £800. I know it hurt

    My bar bill at the end of the ten days was around two grand. Barbados isn't cheap.

    Pad likes a drink + bar prices in (very) decent hotel, no real shock there

    Just seems mental.

    Even at £10 a drink you'd have to be knocking them back every 45 mins for over 12 hours to hit that mark.

    No way I've got that sort of shift in me these days, I'd be a mess in half that time at that pace.

    Don't think I even drank that much across an entire week when we went to Portugal earlier this year. Just wouldn't find the time.

    Fun fact - Last time I ordered Dom was at a run n' tug parlour in Stockholm.

    We've just come back from Barbados for our honeymoon and it definitely isn't cheap.

    I was kind of prepared for it as a mate went about a year ago and warned me. I think I must have been to the same restaurant and the Mrs had the same meal as I didn't see many Thai places around. Quite enjoyed the flying fish and sword fish on the Friday Fish fry.
