Oh we aplogize for this such low-class food that you can't stop thinking about yiplong. We were unaware that every food that is invented has to be a "crown jewel".

The Garbage Plate is so bad that a number of celebrities talk about how much they loved it. Adam Levine has raved about it. When Kevin Hart was on Jimmy Fallon about a year ago talking about his tour, Jimmy heard he was coming to Rochester and was going on about the Garbage Plate and how much he loves it. There are millions of views on youtube for different recipes. I know it must really **** you off that so many people do enjoy it

Look the other way yiplong. This low-class Rochesterian here is going tonight to get a tasty garbage plate from Don's Original.

Pick almost any dish from French food, Italian food, Japanese food, Southern food or any other respectable cooking tradition, and it will be 100x better than this aptly named plate of literal garbage.
Meh, it’s a funny regional specialty that some people very much enjoy. I don’t know why that’s got you so pissed or why it’s supposed to represent the totality of what foods you can find in Rochester or upstate in general. Also keep in mind that a lot of larger cuisines have regional dishes that are either kitchensink hodgepodges that are generally hearty and well-liked and/or names that are on the outset sort of unappetizing.

Another interesting thing about the Garbage Plate and the video I posted earlier from Binging with Babish. Even though he's from Rochester originally, the premise of his channel is about recreating foods from movies and television.

So the reason why he was able to recreate his version of the Garbage Plate is because the Plate is mentioned in the movie The Place Beyond the Pines.

LOL And Don't forget the Sterns--husband and wife food critics and authors of Roadfood, which they wrote after traveling the country and sampling regional dive food. Yes, they stopped at Nick Tahou's for a Garbage Plate--and declared it to be... a delicious mess LMAO.

As for the sour naysayers, they must not get out much to diners. If they did, they'd notice trash plates, junk plates, scrap plates lol--we even saw a garbo plate--Tahou's trademark makes for interesting menu items--and they appear across the country, BTW.

I'm not the meat-eater in the family, but DH and the kids love those plates.

I love the fact that you can combine 2 of Rochester's culinary delights and enjoy them both at the same time. Enjoy your garbage plate with white, pop-open zweigles hots

Not specific to the garbage plate, but when I had furniture delivered a few days ago, I thought about this thread.

The drivers delivering were from New Jersey and they come to the Rochester area twice a week delivering for Pottery Barn Kids. They told me they love coming to our area for our food. They said that it just wasn't the same in New Jersey lol.
