At the Kayabukiya Tavern in Tokyo, you will be served drinks by two Japanese Macaque monkeys named Yat-chan and Fuku-chan. They are both certified employees who receive their wages in the form of soya beans.
The Human Banquet
Some of you probably know that Nyotaimori (meaning female body plate) is a popular method of serving sushi in Japan. Well, recently, the Japanese took things to the next level by not just eating off of the bodies but by eating the bodies themselves. Don’t worry; we’re not talking real cannibalism here; the bodies are edible creations made in the kitchen by an artistic staff. At the table you are provided with a scalpel and a plate. You and your party of faux cannibals are then left to dissect the “body” and eat its innards. Beware, things can get messy as these bodies “bleed.”
New Lucky Restaurant
Maybe in the United States it would be seen as a bit morbid. In India however, a country with over a billion people, death and graveyards are not as separate from society as in the west. So when Krsihan Kutti Nair started a successful tea stall outside a cemetery in Ahmadabad not too long ago, and he needed to expand, there was only one logical option…the space between the graves (painted green).
The Pop-Up Diner
The Italian town of Ferrara recently introduced an interesting concept. For 60 Euros you can buy a dinner for two and then, on the scheduled evening, receive a text disclosing the location of the meal/table, which inevitably will show up somewhere on the historical streets of the town.
Sounds of Silence
The only diner on our list that is located in the middle of the desert, this roofless dinner experience takes you into the middle of the Australian Outback right next to Ayers Rock and gives you a view of the stars that you could only dream of.
