Twitter is campaigning for food to be served on plates again

If you've visited any restaurant that isn't your local greasy spoon café of late, you may have noticed a dangerous trend.

The humble plate is no longer the serving vessel of choice for most restaurants – you can now expect to receive your burger on a slab of wood as standard, with your chips in a tiny metal basket, and your cocktail in anything from a ceramic vase to a teapot.

Now though, the people of Twitter have spoken, and they want this madness to end.

A new account called We Want Plates is crusading for the return of the good ol' white circular plate, with followers sending in some of their more bizarre meals.

From bangers and mash in a wine glass (ew)…

To tartare sauce in a watering can…

…It's clear this trend has gone too far!
