FANCY A CANNIBAL MEAL THIS WEEKEND?

There are rumours of an alleged “cannibal restaurant” opening soon in Berlin based on the Wari culture of endocannibalism, the reverential consumption of a member of one's own society after their death! Whether true or not, Shaka Zulu restaurant (above) has just opened in Camden, London, offering an authentic taste of Africa (grilled zebra, anyone?) in an atmosphere of Zulu extravagance (but definitely no cannibalism! Not that is, unless the chef falls out with the commis and throws a strop...)

But you don’t have to look far for other themed food joints. Have you heard of Marton, a "Modern Toilet Diner" in Taiwan? Here, customers sit on seats shaped like lavatories, consuming carefully sculpted chocolate ice-cream (think!!) out of mini toilet bowls! Then there used to be Eternity in the Ukraine, which was cosily located inside the world's largest coffin (but business died) and a restaurant in Ahmadabad, India which is actually inside a Muslim cemetery.

But that’s not all. Fancy eating in a prison? Well, you’re spoilt for choice! There’s Chain Cool in Beijing, The Jail in Taiwan (again), and even in the UK, The Clink where not only are you dining inside an actual prison (High Down), but you're served and catered to by actual prisoners!

WHAT'S THE MOST BIZARRE THEMED RESTAURANT YOU KNOW OF, AND HAVE YOU EVER HAD A DECENT MEAL IN ONE?

Happy Six Word Saturday!
Other great posts @ Show My Face.

Have a good weekend and see you again for Ruby Tuesday.
Mwah!
XOXO LOLA:)

I went to a minority restaurant in China once where overall the food and entertainment (minority dancers) was great, but right in the middle of the meal we heard a scuffle near our table and looked over and there were our waiters killing a snake to drain its blood to serve us with alcohol!

All I can say is that it had women with a tight budget for clothes who liked to cane the naughty boys who ate school dinner meal( and no I never ate there and it didn't keep in business long!)Hope your week goes. My 6WS.

Life for some people can be sooo weird! But maybe mine seems strange too. :)

I have seen the toilet restaurant on television. It seems that Taiwan is inclined more toward the "bodily functions" type of shock factors than any other country.

As for cannibalism restaurants: Soylent Green can't be far behind.

Melody said...

Where do you find this stuff? Wonder if they serve a pork bbq in the Indian Resturant..hehe
I guess if you're gonna get robbed by a high priced Resturant, might as well be a jail theme.
Cannibal resturant wouldn't surprise me....Blood Bars are said to be in some cities here in the States...all Vampires welcome 8]
Yum, after all this I could go for a snack!

Jenny said...

Yikes. I think I'll just stick to plain old Mexican restaurants!

Berlin said...

Eww, a cannibal restaurant?!
I have seen the prison restaurant on the TV program 'Hero to Zero', it's interesting!

Weirdest restaurant I saw yesterday was 'The Pork restaurant', guess it's all about pork.

Have a brilliant day,
Berlin

Lola! You find the most interesting stuff! We just eat kind of normal things around here...xoxoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Draffin Bears said...

Oh dear Nora and Lola,

I am so glad that cannibalism is not still going on.
Such an interesting post with all the authentic delights and thanks for sharing.
While we were away there were all sorts of meats on the go - alligator, kangaroo ~ I did try a little of both, but think I will stick to what I know and enjoy.

Happy week
Hugs
Carolyn

Hiya Nora - yes, I remember hearing about this and then being mighty relieved when it was discovered just to be a bogus story. Whoever dreams these things up?

Kisses to the lovely Lola and one for yourself as well

Everywhere I've eaten seems so tame. My husband has had some interesting dining experiences in China and South Korea but nothing out of the ordinary to the locals there. Interesting post, thanks for playing 6WS!
