I'm inclined to agree that you may have a focus issue, both from not being in macro mode and maybe auto-focus issues but other factors may affect the picture as well.

Your shutter speed was 1/20 so motion blur may be contributing to the image softness if you weren't using a tripod.

After doing some sharpening it does that appear that there is a plane of sharper focusbounded by the rear visible edges of the saucer and the front visible edge of the rice plate. If so then stopping the lens down should improve the DOF.
