The Rising Popularity Of ‘Toilet Restaurants’ In London

The Rising Popularity Of ‘Toilet Restaurants’ In LondonWhen the first toilet-themed restaurant, Modern Toilet, opened in Taipei in 2004, public reaction was mixed.

London Restaurant Lets You Burn Calories While Eating

London Restaurant Lets You Burn Calories While EatingMost people dread a visit to the gym after eating a heavy meal but a pop-up restaurant in London says diners can enjoy their “calorie neutral” menu that allows them to burn off 573 calories while eating. The restaurant called Steam is opening on Wednesday to promote German appliance manufacturer Miele’s new steam-cooking line, which will be used to cook the steamed meals created by chef Frederick Forster of The Boundary.

The 48 diners, who were chosen by random lottery, are advised to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes for the 90-minute experience. Upon entering the restaurant, they’re offered metabolism-boosting green tea and cold liquids to prep them for their workout. Next, they partake in an standing-only 40-minute exercise class that promises to burn 300 calories called “Body Balance”, a Pilates, yoga, Tai chi combo designed by former Olympian Les Mills. The room is also kept chilly so patrons won’t sweat before dinner and to enhance calorie burn.   Read the rest of this entry »
