  • 10 Unique Dining Experiences Around The World

    One of the best parts of travelling around the world is getting to experience new and amazing food, from grubbing it with the street foodies or to the more elegant fine dining experiences. And then there are some unique restaurant ideas where not only is the food amazing, the concept itself is so weird, exciting, cool, bizarre, etc., that you're not likely to find something similar anywhere else.   Here are 10 of the world's most unique dining experiences!   1. Dining in the Dark   Yes, it is exactly what it sounds like! You might have stumbled around the dark when one of those midnight cravings hits you, but this is a whole other ball game. Dining in the dark is a concept that removes one of the senses that we use most – especially when it comes to food – our sight and heightens the rest of them to make one of the world's most unique dining experiences. Here are a couple places where you can find this cool Halal food experience around the world:   - Dialogue in the Dark – Pan India   Website:   *Note: They are not Halal-certified, but most outlets make assurances of Halal food only being used. There is also no alcohol or pork involved in the preparation (*again, most outlets). Please do find the closest outlet to you and contact them directly for more information. They also have a vegetarian menu.Click here for more information about Dialogue in the Dark – Pan India   - Dining in The Dark KL     *Note: They are also not Halal-certified, but serve Muslim-friendly food, which means they use Halal meat and refrain from pork or alcohol. However, alcohol is served on the side.

Dining in the Air   - Dinner in the Sky Website:   Dinner in the Sky is a company that brings to you one of the world's most unique dining experiences – having a gorgeous meal with a gorgeous view below you as you float in the air! This amazing concept was brought to life first in Belgium but has since been expanded to over 40 countries, including Malaysia, Dubai, Australia, India, United States, Canada, and more.   *Note: Certain countries have Halal-certified menus, like Malaysia and Dubai, but please do check with the branch in your country. You can find the contact information through their website.   3. Dining with Pets   If you're a pet lover, you might be interested in the bizarre yet unique restaurant concept of eating in a pseudo-pet shop, because that's exactly what pet cafes are! That's right, you'll get to enjoy tea and snacks while sitting amongst cute, domestic furries like cats and rabbits, watch birds flutter around, or even have a live snake slither around on your table. Tokyo is famous for this unique dining concept, and there are various animal cafes you can find, depending on your pet preferences.
