Do you consider yourself a fearless foodie? Would you ever take your taste buds for a walk on the wild side by eating ice cream out of a “toilet bowl,” sampling chocolate covered scorpions, or eating in total darkness? In pursuit of extreme eateries and restaurants with “personality,” TripAdvisor’s TripWatch team is shining a spotlight on with the Top 10 Wacky Restaurants in the World.
Running the gamut from gimmicky to gourmet, Taipei’s Modern Toilet tops the list for creating a restaurant that encourages travelers to indulge in bathroom-themed food while seated on tables and chairs that look like toilet bowls and bathtubs. Also offering a themed dining experience is Ninja New York in New York City, which offers Ninja-approved Japanese cuisine including sushi and the “ultimate Ninja weapon” dessert called the Ninja Star, which is surprisingly chocolate mousse cake!
On the other side of the culinary spectrum, The Fat Duck in Bray on Thames, England, boasts a Michelin star and treats travelers to a spectacle of the senses by serving up creative cuisine inspired by molecular gastronomy. Also producing an intense sensory experience for patrons is O.Noir in Montreal, Canada, where diners eat in total darkness, forcing them to focus more on the taste, flavors and textures of the food.
