Can You Tell What These Hipster Restaurant Dishes Are Meant To Be?

You either resist the latest food trends, or live long enough to see them deconstructed.

  1. What is this supposed to be?

    Twitter: @VSmaz
    A crab mousse
    A Caesar salad
    A flowerpot that fell and almost killed a diner
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's a goddamn crab mousse!

    Here's a proper crab mousse, by the way.

  2. Do you know what this is?

    instagram.com
    An Oreo cake
    A mozzarella and celery cake
    A grasshopper pizza with corn dough
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's a grasshopper pizza.

    From one of the most hipster pizza restaurants in Mexico City.

  3. What's this dish meant to be?

    Twitter: @boynextRAWR
    A Vietnamese sandwich
    Rascasse cake
    A work of art by Zaha Hadid
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's a bánh mì.

    It's a Vietnamese sandwich, but it's been "deconstructed", so it looks like it's been plated by Miró.

  4. What's in these test tubes? Surely not food.

    instagram.com
    Detox juice
    Artisan beer
    A urine sample
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's beer.

    A bar in Melbourne thought it was OK to serve it lab-style instead of IN A GODDAMN BEER MUG.

    It's beer.

  5. OK, we've got some more test tubes here:

    Twitter: @IncrediblyRich
    Black coffee
    Wine reduction
    Chicken broth
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's a fucking black coffee.

    And they only needed FIVE containers to serve it! It's certainly a step forward from the simple espresso cup.

    It's a fucking black coffee.

  6. What's happening to these prawns?

    instagram.com
    They've been left to marinate in a shot of Jägermeister
    They're part of a modern spring roll
    They killed themselves because they couldn't stand this mixed-up modern life
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's a spring roll.

    Although I would understand if those prawns had killed themselves.

    It's a spring roll.

  7. What's in this glass?

    Twitter: @WeWantPlates
    A Bloody Mary
    Your typical British dish of bangers and mash
    A tiramisu
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's sausages and pureed potatoes.

    It doesn't make sense to us either, honestly.

    It's sausages and pureed potatoes.

  8. What's this?

    Twitter: @rocketandsquash
    A dish of deconstructed bolognese
    Elver marmitako (tuna pot)
    I DON'T KNOW! MY EYES HURT, I DON'T WANNA SEE ANY MORE NONSENSE.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's a dish of deconstructed bolognese.

    Which is only €29 in a French restaurant. Ugh.

Can You Tell What These Hipster Restaurant Dishes Are Meant To Be?

You're clueless.

You'll obviously eat whatever the hipster chefs put in front of you. They're gonna con you at every fancy restaurant you go to.

You know your stuff.

They still rip you off with some bullshit-topped gourmet burger, but generally you know well where to eat without being conned. C'mon, recommend some restaurants to us.
