In Christchurch, a restaurant serves hamburgers at 140 km/h
Serving food at high speeds is possible thanks to pipes! A restaurant in New Zealand has successfully set up an innovative system that wouldn’t look out of place in a science fiction film.
In Christchurch, the boss of the restaurant C1 Espresso had an innovative idea that seems like it should only exist in futuristic sci-fi films: delivering hamburgers from the kitchen to the tables via a system of pipes.
The dishes leave the kitchen through aluminium pipes, which allow the hamburgers to be well-protected and not deteriorate during their short journey. They are fired at 140 km/h through pipes from the kitchen to reach the dining area.
The hamburgers’ journey, at high speed, is a real spectacle for all the customers.
The system works between 3pm and 9pm. Only part of the menu is delivered through the pipes.
The system was originally installed on a trial basis by the owner. It has been such a success that it is still going strong. It allows the restaurant to serve customers more quickly without reducing the quality of service. On the contrary, the innovative nature of the system and permanent attraction it represents has attracted more people to the restaurant.
