San Francisco restaurant uses iPads as plates to serve food

Yes, you read that right. It appears that the Quince restaurant in San Francisco has found yet another use for the iPad. While it's a great platform for both entertainment and work, the iPad seems to be the perfect way to complement a very special meal too.
The Michelin star awarded restaurant offers a meal called “A Dog in Search of Gold”, which a famous chef by the name of Richie Nakano described as “white truffle croquettes on iPads playing videos of water dogs on the truffle-hunt”.
So, basically what you get with this meal is not only exquisite dinner, but also its backstory. And while this might seem like an interesting idea for truffles, we'd rather skip on the origin story of our not-so-vegetarian meals.
However, considering the iPads are working when the dish is served, we can't help but to wonder how exactly they are washed. Since you can't wash them in the dishwasher or sink, we honestly hope that the iPads are thoroughly sanitized through other means.

No matter how exquisite, I wouldn't want to eat off of an electronic device.

Huh...why do I feel like this restaurant will soon take it a step further by offering Apple Pencils as chopsticks...

That's disgusting. Electronic devices usually have more germs than toilet seats (according to several studies) and it's not like the restaurant can wash the iPads. And if they "sanitize" them it will probably be just a quick wipe with an alcohol pad which will do close to nothing.
