A pretence at pretentiousness

Strip by: Ian Boreham

{A hipster waiter is taking an order from a suited customer.}
waiter: Our first special is the slow-pulled pork with male kale and sun-dried wholegrain coconut.
customer: Slow-pulled?
waiter: Over 8 hours, Dude.
waiter: Our other special is the steak grilled over propolis flames with ethical krill and corn kernels from the south side of the cobs.
customer: Is the steak single origin?
caption: At hipster restaurants, I try to keep up, but sometimes I can't tell which of us is faking it more.

The author writes:

These dishes started sounding like something from Mezzacotta Café.

I was tempted to decorate the restaurant in hipster style too, but that would have taken time, research, imagination and so on, so I went for a generic restaurant look. It might have been easier if I'd actually ever been to a hipster restaurant. Maybe they don't even exist.

I have to admit, I don't know about kale sexing, so "male kale" might be an entirely imaginary ingredient.
