An Actually Healthy Restaurant?

Maybe it is possible.

This one's in Tokyo and it was designed by the Tanita scale corporation.

According to this tiny news item,
"Each table is fitted with a weighing scale to ensure healthy portions can be measured out, while a timer tells the diner when the optimum duration of 20 minutes for completing their lunch is over. Professional dieticians are also on hand to provide free advice on eating regimes in a special counselling room."
Sounds fabulous to me (other than that weird timer thing).

  1. A friend of mine once asked "how much time do I have?" when we arrived at an "all you can eat buffet".

  2. I'd love to hear what you think of this place in Redmond, WA, USA:

    Their tag line is "Revolutionizing healthy eating," and it looks pretty good. I've heard only good things from friend who have gone. But I've wondered what you would think, since it still isn't you cooking your own real food at home.

    1. I can't figure out the revolution. Menu looks lovely though.

      Restaurants are part of my life too - but as a rare treat and not a regular occurrence.

  3. Sounds a bit clinical to me. Part of eating is actually enjoying the experience...and for me that is key in eating healthy. Otherwise I end up dissatisfied and end up trying to fill the void with additional calories that I don't need.

  4. This sounds a bit strange but the intention behind it is good... at least I think. I think we'll be seeing more of these types of places as the world becomes more health conscious.
