We could care less about plating skills as long the food tastes good. But, er, there’s something to be said for at least making a dish look vaguely attractive. When inju posted this shot, he blamed the look of this plate on poor service resulting in an effect we’d describe as melty. But, honestly, we’re not sure this plate would have called out to us even if that ice cream had a little more perk to it.
Tbp278 calls this “the most disgusting ‘cheese’ sandwich and rotton quiche.” Is that a French accent we hear creeping into the spelling? In either case, we agree: FAIL!
Look around the Internet and there are quite a few entries in the Most Disgusting Pizza Ever competition. On looks alone, however, this pie served up on emily.beeson‘s flickr feed may just be the winner. No, I don’t want fries with my pizza. Not ever.
Think you’ve had a pizza that’s even more disgusting? Send it in and we’ll post it!
When you’re tired and hungry at the airport, you’ve got some options. Unfortunately most of them are lacking in flavor and color, like this unbelievably plain bagel from coffee-powerhouse Starbucks. Sure, the coffee woke us up, but the boring bagel made us slump right back down in those pleather chairs.

We came by this photo on the flickr feed of petitgateau. Title: Most Disgusting Pizza Ever. Hmmmm… we see some gnarly looking jalapeno pepper, some poorly melted cheese, and definitely some anchovies. That’s where the image-quality fails us, and we kind of have to take a guess at the remaining topping… Pineapple? Unmelted cheese? Hunks of lettuce? In either case, a definite pizza failure.
Hey, we make no secret of our love for Mission Chinese Food. But this dish, their Kung Pao Pastrami, for us mere mortals at least, is just too damn hot. Don’t get us wrong, there’s plenty of flavor there, but when your nose starts burning as soon as the plate hits the table, you know you’re in for some trouble. Actually eating the food turned our sweat glands to max flow, and by the end of the meal we all quietly slunk away to shower off. Essentially, with this one, Chef Danny Bowien blew the Scoville Scale up.
The folks over at Tailgatingideas.com use this image to explain why it’s better to cook up your ballpark food while tailgating than it is to trust the concession stands. The juicy details as to how this particular hot dog developed such a bad case of fur go unreported. Either way, it’s kind of shocking, because we’d always assumed that the chemical make-up of a proper hot dog made them resistant to mold, bacteria, digestion, et cetera.
