1) what's the ingredients for this dish?
2) what are the ingredients for this dish?

We normally would choose the second sentence as the right one. But I do hear many time native English say the first sentence?
Is the first one just colloquially acceptable?

Why didn't you capitalise 1 and 2?

#1 is only acceptable colloquially.
