What ever happened to food just being served on a dish?

Or a platter? Or a bowl?

Well, I’m here to inform you that those days are long gone, my friends…

Because there’s a major trend that’s sweeping the nation and I’m not convinced that it’s a good one…

For some strange reason, restaurants have taken to serving their food in the most ridiculous ways possible…and it looks like there’s no end in sight.

If you haven’t seen this phenomenon yet, feast your eyes on the photos below and let us know what you think in the comments…
