Everyone likes themed restaurants. If you don’t, you’re one of those prissy sourpusses who demand that their steak is served blue and that there are no lumps in your cranberry jus.
However, themes can sometimes be a little…how do I say this? Boring. You get your standard Mexican themed restaurants, with a mariachi band and a bunch of busty, loose women. There are German restaurants which are weirdly similar to Mexican restaurants, except that they have an accordion band instead of a mariachi one.
But then, there are some really strange themes – like these ones below…
The A380 Kitchen, Taiwan
Because who doesn’t love airplane food? Sweaty, tasteless stuff served to you at 30,000 feet (where the altitude dulls your sense of taste, natch) is the ultimate dining experience. This restaurant in Taiwan replicates the experience without having to actually fly anywhere.
Fortezza Medicea Restaurant, Italy
Because who doesn’t love dining with the constant fear of being shanked? This restaurant is based in a real life working prison, and the food is cooked by the prisoners. Waiting lists to get in here stand at months (which is longer than some of the inmates’ sentences).
