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?

    Correct!

    It's a goddamn crab mousse!

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

  3. What's this dish meant to be?

    Twitter: @boynextRAWR
    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.

    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.

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

    Twitter: @IncrediblyRich
    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.

  6. What's happening to these prawns?

    instagram.com
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's a spring roll.

    Although I would understand if those prawns had killed themselves.

  7. What's in this glass?

    Twitter: @WeWantPlates
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's sausages and pureed potatoes.

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

  8. What's this?

    Twitter: @rocketandsquash
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's a dish of deconstructed bolognese.

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