Met Gala 2023 food menu called 'disgusting' by netizens, not worth for event selling tickets for Rs 41 lakh
The Met Gala 2023, the biggest fashion night, took place on May 1 in New York. Celebrities dressed in couture and posed on the carpet of The Metropolitan Museum of Art while cameras went on clicking picture after picture. This year's theme paid tribute to the late designer Karl Lagerfeld. Well, the fashion game was on point. But was the food? Several pictures of the food served at the lavish event went viral and to say the least, netizens are barely impressed.
Photos of the menu card on Twitter featured dishes such as chilled spring pea soup with baby vegetables, lemon creme fraiche, and truffle snow. For mains, the guests were served Ora King salmon. Additionally, guests were offered wine and coke on the drinks menu. Reports claim that the dishes on the menu were also a tribute to Lagerfeld as those were his favourite dishes. Pictures of the food were also circulated widely on the internet. Meanwhile, netizens were not having it. Knowing that the tickets to the Gala cost a whopping Rs 41 lakh, the internet was not convinced with the food served at the glam event hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
People could not believe the menu.
Many took to Twitter to comment on the food. One user wrote, "The Met Gala food is so appetite suppressant." Another person stated, "The food?? omg y’all better be kidding #MetGala." A third person commented, "The only thing I want from this menu is Maluma."
