The food trend that looks like garbage
Would you try a garbage plate?
FOOD Garbage plate
In Rochester, NY the late-night food scene took a turn for the ugly. Dubbed the garbage plate, this junk food dish is undoubtedly a change from the photogenic foods that have become increasingly popular.
Want to try some garbage? Here's what's in it: Start with a base of macaroni salad, baked beans, or both. Then add a layer of potato, either french fries or home fries. The toppings are where you have room for creativity. Some favorites include crumbled hamburger, sausage, eggs, or a grilled cheese sandwich. Then comes the sauce, either mustard, ketchup, relish, hot sauce, chili, or all of the above.
The trend was created by Nick Tahou, who trademarked the garbage plate during the Great Depression, according to NowThis. Decades later it has become a local drunk food phenomenon. Available in restaurants all around Rochester, eating garbage has never tasted so good.
Bon appétit—you now have a plate of garbage.
