The Clinic in Singapore

The Most Unique Restaurants Around the World

Unless youre actually afraid of hospitals, lunch or dinner at the clinic in Singapore should prove to be a very interesting eating experience. Here, the food takes the shape of science experiments. A food critic called it a “molecular gastronomy” as chefs and waiters dressed up as hospital attendants serve you food made from the restaurants open-demo kitchen. To top it all off, this demo is illuminated by operating lights.

The menu is interesting, to say the least. Among the yummiest concoctions in its 13-course list include the Dashi soup which with has soba noodles made from olive oil. The noodles are “self forming” produced by squirting olive oil on a bowl of hot liquid.

The food will be served to you on a surgical table, and youll be sitting on a gold-plated wheelchair while you dine here. If the experience isnt too bizarre for your taste, youll probably come back and bring friends just for the fun of it. The place probably has full bookings during Halloween.

Were talking about ‘s Baggers owned by Michael Mack. This restaurant owner probably got tired of hiring waiters, or he listened to his past customers and designed one which is free from surly waiters and waitresses.

This restaurant is located in the outskirts of Nuremberg, Bavaria, and while the food is still cooked by humans, orders are taken my touch screen monitors on the table and served by gravity. Yes, gravity. All over the restaurants are spiral conveyer belts which deliver the food to hungry customers once theyre done. Talk about efficient.

You wont get bored, either, because these touch screen menus are connected to the internet. The restaurant lets customers check their emails and SMS through the machine while theyre waiting for their food. Mack has already claimed the patent for this automated system. It wont come as a surprise if more and more restaurants use the same serving system.

The best dish in the house is Frankische Kanneloni. These are pancakes which are stuffed with kraut and mincemeat. This restaurant is not so odd as it is impressive.

Take a peek inside the resto through this video.
