So you sit down at a restaurant (or in this case the food court at the mall), and the pigs before you did not clean off the table, but as you are moving their garbage to the side, you notice an almost untouched plate of fries and/or onion rings. There is no garbage or half eaten food or anything else gross in proximity to these items. You didn't see who was sitting at the table before you...

Kashrus is not an issue and there is little or no reason to believe the food was contaminated in any way, and it looks completely fine even appetizing....

WWYD???

PS. By some Divine sense of humor or twist of fate, as I was contemplating this very question, some random guy comes up to me and asks if he can take the half drunk bottle of soda that was sitting on the table. I told him be my guest, it isn't mine and he snatched it up and gleefully pranced away...

Ask restaurant staff to clean the table. Or pick a different table. DO NOT EAT IT!

That's much worse, it was IN or "on top of" the garbage. This was just uneaten food on a table...
