If you go into a café and order a sandwich, you’d expect your order to come back looking pretty standard.
Just your favourite filling between two slices of bread. It shouldn’t be too complicated, right? Wrong.
One person has uploaded a picture of what they claim their cousin received when they ordered a sarnie from a café in Sydney.
Reddit user MiloXF uploaded a photo, which shows a completely deconstructed meal served in two cardboard boxes.
Instead of being presented with a straight forward ham sandwich, the customer was given all the ingredients laid out in the box – there were two slices of bread and some butter, plus ham and various salad items.
Most bizarrely of all, in the centre is a little pot of mustard with a small gherkin artfully placed in the middle.
People on Reddit have slammed the café for the "stupid" sandwich – which apparently cost a whopping $17 (£10).
"If I wanted to make a sandwich myself I would have stayed at home and done it," one user said.
"This is the worst sandwich I have ever seen, I don’t understand the appeal of deconstructing food at all," another wrote.
Others were more baffled by the salad ingredients sitting beside the sandwich.
"Who the f**k has strawberries on a sandwich?" one Reddit user asked.
Another agreed, writing: "The stupidest thing of all in that pic is the dumb strawberry!"
Not everyone criticised the deconstructed sandwich, with some saying they thought the meal looked perfectly fine.
One said: "I’m fine with this too.
"This thread is just people trying to look clever by slagging off something for looking trendy.
"Just pop the ham on the bread with a bit of mustard and enjoy a nice salad. I’d actually prefer this over a sludgy and heavy sandwich/burger lathered in sauce."
It’s not confirmed where the sandwich was bought from by the original poster’s cousin, but several people suggested it’s a café called Bread & Circus.
One person who claims to know the spot, commented: "Your cousin ordered a menu Item called "Sandwich Box". Box. Stop being outraged for nothing."
Mirror Online has contacted Bread & Circus for comment.
