If you enter these unusual restaurants you are sure to have the most peculiar meal!
Restaurants are more than food on a plate. The essence of the industry is to convince us exactly of that. On the one hand, we go to restaurants because we are made to believe that the food is better, being prepared by highly skilled people. On the other hand, we go for the social aspect of sharing a meal with others. But what if the restaurant, or the food, or both, is a bit… odd? Well, these restaurants sure live up to that!
1 – Ithaa Undersea Restaurant (Rangdi Island, Maldives)
Opened in 2005, this all-glass restaurant is a gorgeous and intimate underwater place that is more than 16 feet bellow the sea level. Encased in a transparent acrylic roof, you can enjoy your meals surrounded by a striking 270º panoramic view of sea life circumnavigating the transparent structure underneath crystal clear sea water.

The venue is used exclusively for private functions and events. From canapés to petit fours, you won’t be disappointed with the food they’re serving!
3 – Modern Toilet (Taipei City, Taiwan)
The guy who came up with this restaurant did so when he was reading while… well, sitting on a toilet. Initially, the place only sold chocolate ice cream in containers shaped like toilets, but once the humorous spin became a success, it became a full eatery and is now a restaurant chain spread throughout many locations across Asia. You can expect to sit in non-working toilets and have your food served in toilet-shaped bowls. We’ll leave it up to your curiosity!

Located in Tokyo, this is a place for you to spend time with friends of the feline variety. You’ll find yourself in a joint where cats appear from everywhere!

If you visit in the evening you’ll have a chance to witness the cats’ dinning ritual in which the small felines feast in circle formation from their respective food bowl.
