10 Weirdest Places to Dine
Stumbled upon this when hearing a reference to Nyotaimori - body sushi - and couldn't resist the rest of the list. What do you think?! - The Green Goddess
Fine dining and cooking are always associated to life’s greatest pleasures. This article will break this tradition by presenting to you our interesting list of top 10 weirdest restaurants.
1. Nyotaimori Restaurant
There is this unique practice in Japanese dining scene known as Nyotaimori. This involves the use of naked bodies mostly of women as the food serving medium. This live sushi platter, if you can call one as such, undergoes extensive training before he or she is made to lie down the table for long hours and totally immobilized while diners feast on their favorite food and everything that goes with it.
2. Hitler’s Cross
The Hitler’s Cross is a famous café located in Mumbai, India. It takes on the Third Reich theme quite seriously and even displays prominently the swastika in the restaurant’s logo. However, because of the intense pressure from Israeli and German diplomats and the ADL, the restaurant’s name was later changed to “The Cross.”
3. Modern Toilet
There is really a Taiwanese restaurant that goes by the name Modern Toilet. Diners are made to seat on a stylish toilet, with the lid down, which has renaissance, seashells or roses accents. The dishes are served in mini-toilet bowls and drinks in plastic urinal which customers can take home as their souvenir.
4. New Lucky
The New Lucky Restaurant is the opulent and bustling dining place in Ahmadabad. It is famous for its specialties, the graves, buttered rolls and milky tea in between tables. This unique restaurant was built at the very spot where an ancient Muslim cemetery is sited.
5. Christian Café
Christian beliefs and practices are still considered novelties in Japan. This is the main reason why a Christian-themed restaurant was established in Shinjuku. The Christian Café makes a striking image of habitués drinking cocktails in a party place predominated by elements that are associated with the Christian faith.
6. Hobbit House
The brains behind this concept restaurant believed that great things come in small packages and sizes. The Hobbit House is located along the busy Malate district of Manila. The Hobbit Restaurant is managed and operated entirely by midgets.
7. Dinner in the Sky
The Dinner in the Sky is the perfect choice for those who want to get a new high from their dining experience. The diners of this unique restaurant are seated around an enormous table that is perched at high altitude being suspended from a powerful crane. This is a must for those who want to eat with the adrenaline rush.
8. Eternity Restaurant
If you like to experience dining while being surrounded by caskets, then your dream can be realized in the famous Eternity restaurant in the Polish border town of Truskavets. If you enjoy this morbid dining experience, then this coffin house must be included in your itinerary.
9. Dick’s Last Resort
Dick’s Last Resort is a small restaurant and bar in the US which was made famous by its open and liberal use of obscene and obnoxious designs and vulgar staff. If you want some real rough treatment in your dining experience, then nothing can beat Dick’s Last Resort.
10. Dans Le Noir
The literal meaning of the French term “Dans le Noir” is “in the dark.” This is basically what the experience is all about. You will literally be made to enjoy, if that is possible, your dining experience in total darkness.
If you are watching what you eat during the holidays, it can be a difficult to avoid meals that are loaded with sugars, starches, and saturated fats. Sure, you really want those candied yams loaded with brown sugar and marshmallows, or your mother’s buttery mashed potatoes topped with savory gravy, and a huge fluffy dinner roll to mop up your plate. But you also don’t want to spike your insulin and start a whole new round of sugar craving that put you right back to square one of breaking your sugar addiction and losing the weight you had just lost months previously.
Yes, I know I am not painting a pretty picture. I hope I got your attention because my goal here is to point out that:
- Food addictions are real: And food addictions are pernicious, meaning that just when you think you have them beat, they sneak back up on you. That goes the heart of what makes up an addiction.
- All that food sounds good, at first: Yes, you really will want all that sugar, and starch, and fat. You REALLY REALLY will want it. And you will reason out with yourself, “What’s the harm in just a little bit?”, or you will say to yourself, “Moderation is the key, and I can manage just a small piece.” This is the time you must be honest with yourself. Can you really moderate yourself? Do you really need to give into the temptations and erase all the hard work you have done to this point? The food will feel right when you eat it, and you will feel awful 15 minutes later. Discipline, discipline, discipline.
I know, you are thinking, “But we have all of these food traditions in my family. How am we to have Thanksgiving without potatoes, stuffing, bread, and sweet desserts?” If you are feeling that you are stuck food traditions for Thanksgiving, then consider why it is we have a Thanksgiving holiday. Thanksgiving is about people coming together, whether as a family unit or a community at large, and giving thanks for the blessings in their lives, and offering a prayer for further blessings. Thanksgiving is not about food. Food is a feature, but it is not the reason for the holiday.
Another way to look at food traditions is this If Thanksgiving was only about food, we would likely be eating far more wild game during the celebration, just like the Pilgrims did. But we don’t, because traditions change. And you can change, too.Giving Thanks: The Reason For Thanksgiving
How about some good news? (Oh course! Please!)
The folks at Cooking Light have put together several Thanksgiving side dishes that use many of the traditional holiday meal elements, but they are prepared in a manner that should easily complement the hard work you’ve taken to manage your diet and your weight. The complete list of 110 recipes is here: https://www.cookinglight.com/thanksgiving/best-thanksgiving-side-dish-recipes
I have combed through the list and found the recipes that I believe eliminate unwanted sugars and starches. They are also bright with color and flavor. Any of these side dishes should be a beautiful complement to your Thanksgiving turkey. Bon Appetit!
These are not your average run of the mill wilted iceberg lettuce and tomato salad. Instead, there are a variety to colorful dishes that bright, light, savory, fruity, and just DELICIOUS!Radicchio, Frisee, Apple, and Manchego Salad. Photos by My Recipe.com

PAN ROASTED VEGETABLES
Pan roasting vegetables is a great was to keep the vitamin and minerals that are lost in boiling vegetables. While eliminating fats and sugars that are used in other processes like baking. Nearly any vegetable can be roasted, and the seasoning flavors are as endless as your imagination and spice rack. Don’t hesitate to experiment with different flavors. Below are some examples of roasted flavors you may not have considered, but they sound outstanding.

Who says that stuffing must primarily made of bread? This warm pancetta, kale, and raisin stuffing breaks with tradition with a smoky, salty, bitter, and sweet stuffing that you will not mind having a second helping of later. And if pancetta is difficult to buy in your area, bacon is good substitute.
Are you tired of Thanksgiving vegetables being overcooked and then being smothered in some cream of soup sauce (ugh!). I know I am. Green bean casserole? Get away from me, Satan! Check out the below recipe that delivers big flavor and all the nutritional goodness that you want.
