    19 Hipster Food Atrocities That Will Make All Scots Go Fucking Radge

    Most of these edible abominations happened in Edinburgh, unsurprisingly.

    1. This Maryhill café that serves its juice in a shoe.

    Facebook: surfacepluscafe

    "Have you finished your drink yet? I need ma trainer back."

    2. And this Glasgow bar, which serves up food and cocktails in vintage gramophones.

    3. This "let's-play-up-to-tired-stereotypes" dog.

    Have some self-respect, James.

    4. And this haggis dog served on a beef slider served on a cucumber ball served in a Bloody Mary.

    That's no way to treat our national dish. And yes, of course this was in Edinburgh.

    5. This reheated rip-off.

    Lasagne, served in its microwaveable plastic tray in a billiecan in an Italian restaurant, Edinburgh. @WeWantPlates

    How much cheekier can hipsters get?

    6. A Glasgow pub that serves 40p sardines for £6.

    Twitter: @CityliciousUK

    Ah, so that's how cheeky they can get. Never mind.

    7. This deconstructed flat white from an Edinburgh café.

    Do you just chew the coffee while downing the water and sipping the milk?

    8. And this deconstructed hot dog.

    Twitter: @jeanne_darc1

    That's not even a flipping hot dog bun. FOR SHAME.

    9. This so-called "full Scottish breakfast", served to an unsuspecting diner in Edinburgh.

    Twitter: @Scubee

    Link sausages? Potatoes? Pancakes? No. Where's the lorne? Where's the tattie scones? Where's the humanity? *Calls the police*

    10. This haggis bonbon hanging over a spinach velouté.

    Twitter: @sezl

    What's wrong with neeps, tatties, or plates?

    11. Not to mention this bizarre presentation.

    Croquettes served on a picture in a frame... Uh I think @WeWantPlates! #Edinburgh

    It's not even a nice picture.

    12. This "kale salt" at an Edinburgh deli.

    Twitter: @glynhudson

    "Do you know what this salt needs? More kale." – No one, ever.

    13. This deconstructed Glasgow cheesecake.

    Twitter: @Mawheid

    "I'll have a jar of cream and some crumbs on a slate, please!" "Coming right up."

    14. This ludicrous mugotto from an Edinburgh pub.

    "Our special today is risotto in a mug." "Why is it special?" "It's in a mug." (Pic: @AFraserAllen)

    15. This frankly insane way to serve broth.

    @WeWantPlates chicken broth, "percolating" in Edinburgh. 😐

    It's hot chicken water, not a pour-over, single-origin Macau espresso.

    16. These flower pot chips from a Glasgow bar.

    Twitter: @sheby

    Mmm, soily.

    17. This pint of haggis in a sweaty glass.

    Twitter: @deaddawg64

    With a mysterious sauce that looks like blood or tar. So traditional!

    18. This bollocks.

    *Shakes head so violently it falls off*

    19. And, worst of all, this "cup" of "tea".

    Twitter: @robmanuel

    Some people just want to watch the world burn.
