That picture doesn’t look like it has anything too strange going on, but look closer. Everything – the booths, the decorations, the tables, and the supports are all made of cardboard. It’s one of the stranger ideas in the world of food prep. Plates, cups, chairs – it’s all cardboard.
It’s part of Carton King Creativity Park, which has many attractions made out of cardboard like a brown, miniature Eiffel tower. The main idea behind the park and restaurant is environmentalism and an understanding of how creativity can be used for good. After you use something, you can use it again.
The Snow Hotel Lumilinna in Kemi, Finland
Structures built entirely out of ice have been popular for some time, but they're usually confined to castles that you can visit for a little while. However, in Kemi, Finland, there is an entire hotel that is made of ice. Finland, being one of those countries that have much cooler temperatures, it is a much better idea than other places in the world.
Inside that hotel is, like all fine hotels, a place to eat. Do they serve hot food? We hope so. You can also visit the snow chapel, and see the nearby frozen sea.
The Conrad Hilton Resort on Rangali Island, Maldives
The Maldives are an exciting place, and that's not just because the food is good. If you want to be wowed by the atmosphere of a one-of-a-kind restaurant, the Conrad Hilton Resort on Rangali Island is the place to be.
You can enjoy some fresh seafood while looking up at the clear blue water and teeming sea fauna that surrounds you. You might not even be able to keep your eyes on your plate. Not many will be able to eat here, but if you get the chance, you should probably take it.
The Robot Restaurant in Tokyo, Japan
Past a pair of sparkling robot girls in the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo, you are ushered into one of the most fantastic things about Tokyo – and that's really, really saying something. You're liable to get nauseated just from entering the place and sitting at the bar, and children need to have hearing protectors.
This place is one of the most insane places in the entire country, and that is ABSOLUTELY saying something. There is undeniable energy here, practically enough to power Tokyo itself, even if the quality leaves a little bit to be desired. If you want a flashbang to your senses, go to this place.
The Witches in Britches Theatre Restaurant in West Melbourne, Australia
Calling itself “Melbourne's most wicked night out,” this Halloween-themed restaurant has more than just spooky good food. It's a lively musical-theater restaurant that has witch-themed shows playing, and there are plenty of previous examples: “The Millenium Bug,” “My Big Fat Witch Wedding,” “Crazy Rich Witches,” and more.
There are special events for holidays like Valentine's Day, event packages, and – as you can see – lots of great outfits. It's been running since 1990, and it's still going strong. Actors and actresses from Australian television are common sights, and there's even a disco.
