Atlas Obscura A Cardboard Restaurant in Taiwan

Taiwan is home to many unusual themed restaurants, but the Carton King Creative Park could perhaps take the biscuit. All its furnishings, decorations, and even plates and cutlery at this whimsical cafe are made of cardboard. 

Snuggle up in the cardboard seats, wait patiently at the cardboard tables, and enjoy your meal out of cardboard bowls or off cardboard plates. If you’re worried about your cardboard seat collapsing during your meal, the bulkier chefs are willing to pull out a seat and demonstrate the cardboard’s sturdiness, even with a waitress perched on their laps.
