bizarre garnishes

goodhealthgourmet | May 10, 2008 06:58 AM

ordered in last night from a local nyc place that delivers both chinese & japanese [i know, i know].

the barbecued prawns arrived on a bed of iceberg lettuce with a couple of lemon wedges - pretty standard. however, right next to the lemon wedges was a single maraschino cherry!


it seemed so out of place i had to wonder if someone had tossed it in there by accident.

the artificially-colored "juice" had begun to bleed onto the lettuce & prawns, tainting both the color & flavor [which, needless to say, did NOT make me happy].

what's the strangest/most incongruous garnish you've ever been served?
