The restaurant concept is all about meeting new food, meeting new cultures, and having a new world experience. The restaurant is set up by refugees, and the employees are refugees, from all different cultures. In the world map on the wall you can see where they come from, this stimulates to talk about the different countries, cultures and habits. On the conveyor belt there is food, from different cultures. Every continent has an other colour bowl. This food will make a round though the “Restaurant of the world”.
