Tack and tech collide,
a fusion, not of flavour
but science and myth.
In the restaurants of Britain and Europe chefs compete to reinvent and re-energise food, turning it from raw ingredients into high tech concoctions. In Tokyo’s Robot Restaurant hardly anyone bothers to buy the picnic, the science is all around, eating would be a distraction from the future.
Tanks, swings, chariots, horses, floating stages, strip lights, rollerskates, angels, devils, snakes, pandas, pantomime cows, lights and glitter and dancing; it’s all here. Lit by LED, lantern and laser, dancing to the tune of a drumming, pumping Gangnam beat.
Oh, and the robots. Unbelievably huge in a tiny space, they just keep coming.
