The Wildest Restaurants in the World!

 



TALK ABOUT DINING AL FRESCO!

This is too wild! Dinner in the Skyis a Brussels based restaurant that serves dinner for up to 22 people… 150 feet in the air! 

 This is a unique event meant for anyone who wishes to transform an ordinary meal or meeting into a magical moment that will leave a lasting impression on their guests!


The specially-designed table and chairs are lifted by a crane. Dinner anywhere in Belgium will set you back almost 8 thousand euros; other locations are also available.


Remember, you must wear your seat belt, and don’t drop your fork! And please use the bathroom before leaving the ground.

“Cabbages and Condoms” is a chain of restaurants in Thailand. There are condoms on the walls and pictures of condoms printed on the carpets. Instead of after-dinner mints, patrons are offered a bowl of condoms at the counter. Condoms and sex toys are a major part of the decor, hanging from ceilings, embedded in tables, affixed to lamps and imitating table flowers.

As one of the most unique restaurants in Metropolitan Bangkok, the Cabbages and Condoms (C&C) Restaurant has attracted international attention.

Conveniently located near one of Bangkok’s main business districts, C&C is very popular among local and foreign clients.


“Our restaurant was conceptualized in part to promote better understanding and acceptance of family planning and to generate income to support various development activities of the Population and Community Development Association (PDA)
 
Profits from the restaurants go to support the Population and Community Development Association (PDA).”



Creator and owner Mechai Viravaidya was recognized by The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation  with a $1 million award for confronting “taboo subjects like sex and HIV/AIDS directly in order to save lives.”

The funds were used by Mr. Viravaidya, the chairman of Population and Community Development Association (or simply “condom king,” depending on who you ask), to promote birth control, AIDS prevention and other health issues in more than 50 countries. Almost 3,000 people work for his private group.


Have you ever heard of people eating out of a bathroom toilet and having great fun? A restaurant named Marton Theme Restaurant, in Kaohsiung (Taiwan) has a toilet theme and is a great hit among people.

The restaurant has a bathroom decor, with colorful toilet seat being the standard chairs at the restaurant. It also serves food in plates and bowls shaped like western loo seats and Japanese “squat” toilets. Customers sits by a tables converted from a bathtub with a glass cover while looking at a wall decorated with neon-lit faucets and urinals turned into lamps.



The restaurant is named after the Chinese word “Matong” for toilet and is doing really well.

The owner Eric Wang says “We not only sell food but also laughter. The food is just as good as any restaurant but we offer additional fun. Most customers think the more disgusting and exaggerated (the restaurant is), the funnier the dining experience is.”

The meals are cheaply priced with a meal set including soup and ice cream costs from 150 to 250 Taiwan dollars ($6 – $10).


How about dinner in Prison?

If you think getting into some of Paris’s hottest restaurants seems hard, then you obviously haven’t eaten at Fortezza Medicea in Volterra, Italy.

Diners at the high-security prison restaurant (you read that right) have to submit to a background check and receive a security clearance from Italy’s Department of Justice.

Serenaded by Bruno, a pianist doing life for murder, the clientele eat inside a deconsecrated chapel set behind the 60ft high walls, watch towers, searchlights and security cameras of the daunting 500-year-old Fortezza Medicea,  near Pisa. Guards stand watch as sommelier Santolo, who’s serving 24 years for murder, pours Chianti.

If you can look past the paper plates and the plastic cutlery, the Southern Italian dishes from Puglia, Sicily, and Naples are rather delicious.

Under the watchful eye of armed prison warders, a 20-strong team of chefs, kitchen hands and waiters prepares 120 covers nightly for diners who have all undergone strict security checks.

Tables are booked up weeks in advance. Allow about 2 months to book a table. Dinner runs about $35.

DINE UNDER WATER in Maldives. The first-ever undersea restaurant in the world was been introduced at the Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa in  2007. Ithaa (which is pronounced “eet-ha” and means “pearl” in the language of the Maldives, Dhivehi) sits five meters below the waves of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by a vibrant coral reef and encased in clear acrylic, offering diners 270 degrees of panoramic underwater views.


This innovative restaurant is the first of its kind in the world, and is part of a US $5 million re-build of Rangalifinolhu Island, one of the twin islands that make up Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. This re-build includes the construction of 79 of the most luxurious beach villas in the country as well as the Spa Village, a self-contained, over-water “resort-within-a-resort” consisting of a spa, restaurant and 21 villas.

If a breathtaking view is not enough…how about NO VIEW. The first dark restaurant, WHALE INSIDE,  in Asia  opened in 2006. This restaurant, located in Beijing, China, has its interior painted completely black. Customers are greeted by a brightly lit entrance hall,  where they choose from several preset menus, which can include chicken soup with shiitake mushrooms, fried shrimp and sautéed noodles. They are  escorted by waiters wearing night vision goggles into the pitch dark dining room to help them find their seats. Flashlights, mobile phones and even luminous watches are prohibited while in this area. 


The meal will be taken in this environment with the complete loss of vision. By starving one’s sense, your other senses are stimulated to full alert “all so the theory goes” and your food will taste like it’s never tasted before. In case you are wondering about the washrooms, they are all brightly lit.

Bon Appetit!
