Bacon-and-Egg iPhone Cover!

Yes, this is my iPhone cover. I got it in the Akihabara electronics district in Tokyo, in the 10-story electronic store. I love it! For example, look at what happens when I take a picture of “The Bean” in Chicago…

Just a nice, normal shot…but, because of my iphone cover, this is what you will see when I take a self-portrait…yep, there’s the bacon-and-egg cover….

While it is certainly unique, it turns out I should have kept shopping in Tokyo, because there are TONS of cool covers I could have bought!

Thanks to the great website “Tofugu.com”, I found more wacky iphone covers, all thanks to the ingenuity of the japanese….

Zushi Sushi!

Here is another unique iphone cover…Chirashi zushi is a “scattered sushi” dish which has sushi rice as well as other toppings normally found on sushi.

Or, if you just need your sushi plain and simple, then you can use this iphone cover:

Unagi On Line One!

I am a big fan of sushi, and I love unagi as well…had I seen this iPhone cover sale, I would have jumped on it:

Forget The Call, Let’s Grab A Toilet And A Bite To Eat!

As much as I love a wacky iPhone cover, I truly love wacky restaurants! Like this one!

Yep, it’s a restaurant in Taiwan that is all toilet! You sit on one and eat out of one…how can this be wrong? Check out the video!

They are clearly in on the joke, as this is the front page of their website…go there to see this place in all its glory!

I love the idea of a restaurant that so brazenly embraces their crazy side…I can only imagine how great the food must taste when it shows up at your table looking like this:

And if that’s not enough, there’s a book that celebrates the wackiest of Tokyo’s restaurants!


Crazy, Wacky Theme Restaurants: Tokyo – by La Carmina

wacky tokyo restaurants

Think you’ve seen it all when it comes to restaurants? Do foie gras, lobster and truffles strike you as humdrum fancy foods served in predictable settings? Looking for totally unique and bizarre restaurants? Then Crazy, Wacky Theme Restaurants: Tokyo is the book for you!

But that’s not all, look at these unique restaurants! Let’s start with a roller coaster ride!

roller-coaster-restaurant

The Long and Winding Road!

Culinary Concept: Roller-coaster service. At this futuristic eatery in Hamburg Germany, the waitstaff is a thing of the past. Guests place their orders via a touch-screen computer at each table. When the food — which, according to the restaurant, is based primarily on local, organic ingredients and cooked with minimal fat — is ready, it zips to the table along a twisting track from the kitchen above.

dinner-in-the-sky restaurant


Restaurant: Dinner in the Sky!

Culinary Concept: Suspended supper. Dinner in the Sky brings new meaning to alfresco dining. If you have $40,000 to spare, you and 21 of your closest friends can lavishly dangle 150 feet above any city (or golf course) while conspicuously consuming beef and foie gras mille-feuille (savory layered puff pastry) and sipping Dom Pérignon.

Stop Your Wining!

And finally, time to get a buzz on by going back to your diapers…

baby bottle wine restaurant

Restaurant: Le Refuge des Fondus, Paris, France

Culinary Concept: Bottle service. As rumor has it, this favorite tourist attraction in the Montmartre neighborhood first began offering patrons wine in baby bottles as a way to avoid the French tax on wine served in proper glasses. While sucking down the grape juice, winos can fill their bellies with toothsome cheese or beef fondues.

So there you go, hope this helped you work up an appetite!
