In Taiwan, sex restaurants and toilet-inspired eateries are all the rage. Tianjin’s idea of themed restaurant fun is slightly more dispiriting. This past weekend, the city opened its first-ever jail-themed restaurant, which the owner said he’d created so that diners could cherish their own freedom, according to Tencent News. Enlightening.
Each eating room is its own separate “cell” made from iron caging. The interior resembles a water dungeon or themed prison, and cells vary in size depending on the number of customers in a party.
Customers are seen eating in the “jail”.
Naturally, web users had something to say on this matter.
One netizen guessed: “The boss must have stayed in jail before. He has different perception on this after he came out.”
Others agreed: “It’ll be too depressing to eat.”
We just hope it doesn’t inspire more incidents like this. Would you eat at a jail-themed restaurant?
