    These are the crabs arranged to look like a centipede by some unknown dining establishment in the world. I'm guessing somewhere in Japan. Would you eat it? Of course you would, they're just crabs. I would, but I'd have to close my eyes when it came and have a friend put all... / Continue →

    Because Hello Kitty has already run her course, Taiwan just opened the very first Barbie Cafe in Taipei. Now I know what you're thinking, and no, it's not a bootleg -- Mattel actually licensed the restaurant. "I'm shocked." No, you're just kind of racist. Now let's hear wha... / Continue →

    Did you know it was hamburger month? Neither did I. But apparently White Castle has licensed burger-scented candles to celebrate the occasion. That's cool. Granted not as cool as the fact I live just a hop, skip and jump from the In-N-Out on Sunset Blvd., but SUCK IT I EAT ... / Continue →

    Tired of drinking wine straight from the bottle? That was rhetorical -- it never gets old. But N2Wine decided to make these Wine Globe systems anyways. Cheers, Jesus. Want to teach me how to fish? Wine globes are glass containers capable of holding 33 or 70 bottles of wine... / Continue →

    I don't have much more information on this except apparently there's some Asian restaurant with a monkey waiter that brings your food and drinks. If that's not freaking crazy, I don't know what is. Just look at his cute little -- BASTARD JUST THREW A TURD AT ME! Youtube Th... / Continue →

    Buns and Guns is an actual freaking restaurant in Beirut and I would totally eat there. At the "Buns and Guns" fast food restaurant, deep in Beirut's Hezbollah-dominated southern suburbs, the chefs wear military helmets, the food is wrapped in camouflage paper, and the motto i... / Continue →

    As a man who frequently blogs and eats his lunch on the john, I know all about the benefits of canning your food (!). And now there's a restaurant in Taiwan that is cashing in on what I've known for years -- eating on the throne is the shit (!). Patrons sit on toilets for sea... / Continue →

    The women's room at Mumin Papa Cafe in Akashi, Japan is pretty awesome. It's a monster aquarium that completely surrounds you. The owner of the cafe says it cost $270,000 to build, which is pretty damn expensive for a single bathroom stall. It's filled with all sorts of exot... / Continue →
