Taranta is a Boston restaurant that aims to offer customers more than just a high-quality brick-and-mortar dining experience -- it also aims to educate customers on pretty much every possible aspect of the food that they're eating so they can get more out of the experience than just a single delicious meal.

The Peruvian-Italian restaurant, located in the North End of Boston, does this in a most ingenious and unusual manner -- by stamping QR codes on plates using squid ink. Diners can use their smartphone QR code readers to scan the inky code to access a world of interesting information.

Diners can read about the ingredients' sourcing, try their hand at its recipe and learn about related sustainability issues.
