In Japan, a restaurant which uses tinned goods as ingredients
Fancy going to a restaurant to eat tinned food? It’s possible in Japan. And the concept is very successful.
Tinned food is usually associated with quick food for easy dishes, whereas in restaurants we expect fresh products and home-made cooking.
Mr Kanso restaurant offers an innovative, audacious menu made up only of tinned ingredients.
When a customer enters the restaurant, they instantly spot that the walls are covered with tins. There is a lot of choice: nearly 300 types of tinned goods, from Hokkaido beer to French peas, even American beef. Picking out your tins is reminiscent of play tea parties from your childhood.
Once the tins have been chosen, you simply have to take them to the barman who will open them and prepare in front of you.
Contrary to popular belief, the concept has been a runaway success with no less than 17 franchises established in Japan.
