Poll: Do you mind your food being served on things other than plates?

Give it to us straight. Be honest.

ACROSS THE WATER, people in the UK are demanding that their food is served on plates in restaurants – and not in shoes, dog bowls, plant pots or other gimmicky items.

In a YouGov survey, 2,030 participants were asked what serving vessels were appropriate for use (the unconventional options were taken from the popular We Want Plates Twitter account).

Circular and square plates were given a resounding thumbs up but Brits were less enamoured with wooden boards, plant pots, jars, shovels, dog bowls and shoes.

The phenomenon of unusual serving methods is a common one across the globe (one Michelin-starred restaurant in San Francisco even gives you your food on an iPad) so Ireland hasn’t escaped.

Is it something that irks you?

Today, we want to know: Do you mind your food being served on things other than plates?

Poll Results:

Yes, plates only. Please and thank you (5093)
I can stretch to a wooden board or slate but nothing else (4678)
I love getting my food served up in unusual ways (940)
