A Selection of the World’s Weirdest Restaurants
Fine dining is one of life’s greatest joys. As Virginia Woolf once said, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” As living, breathing entities, we must eat to survive, what and how we choose to do so is entirely up to us as individuals. Luckily, our colorful world provides us with many opportunities to consume our food in the most interesting of ways.
Here are our choices for some of the world’s weirdest restaurants
- Modern Toilet Restaurant in Taiwan
Situated in the Wanhua District of Taipei City in Taiwan, this novelty restaurant has a toilet theme. Guests are seated on decorative toilet seats and food is served on dishes resembling different kinds of toilet related equipment. The result is a truly unique place in which to dine whilst on a visit to Taiwan.
- Kayabuki Tavern in Japan
This restaurant has been described as a “traditional-style Japanese sake-house” where you can reserve a monkey as your waiter. Located north of Tokyo in the city of Utsunomiya, guests tip their waiters with soya beans.
- The Clinic in Singapore
If hospitals are your thing, then you will want to reserve a table at The Clinic in Singapore. Here, guests are seated in wheelchairs and hospital beds while drinks are served in test tubes. Singapore’s Clarke Quay district sets the scene for this unusual dining experience, which has been designed to pay homage to the great Damien Hirst.
- Dick’s Last Resort in Las Vegas, America
Book a table at Dick’s Last Resort at the Mall of America for a bizarre dining experience where you will be berated by the famously obnoxious staff. Housed in the Excalibur Hotel Casino on Las Vegas BLVD, as well as other locations across the US such as Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Indianapolis, this is the place to go if you are a glutton, for punishment that is.
- Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas, USA
The Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas has to be one of the most peculiar places to dine in the world. Guests are required to wear hospital gowns as they bite into over the top foods like the bypass burger. The restaurant has received huge amounts of criticism for serving meals that are extremely high in calories, the type of food that could lead to a heart attack. Waitresses dressed in provocative clothing spank guests who are unable to finish their meals.
