33 One-of-a-Kind Theme Restaurants

— September 4, 2008 — Lifestyle
Forget about the food--these 33 theme restaurants are destinations in their own right. Whether you're sitting on a toilet seat eating chocolate soft-serve ice cream out of a suggestively-shaped miniature toilet bowl in Taiwan or customizing your meal's taste with a bevy of flavored oils in Germany, a meal at one of these restaurants is an experience of a lifetime.

Some restaurants are vanguards of the next modern restaurant, like the Instructables restaurant or the zero-waste Sprout restaurant. Others are just plain bizarre, like the Japanese maid cafe or the coffin-themed restaurant.
