A Meat Theme-Park? Only in Japan!
A what now? Yes, a meat theme-park in Tokyo. Why? Well because you can, that's why. It is a meat theme-park in Tokyo, with stands that serve meat in many different ways and also offers entertainment, such as a museum, the "Museo de Carne" (the meat museum). You can walk through the park and pass through a Spanish-style village.
Meatrea: The Meat Theme-Park
All the restaurants serve different cuisines using regional meat products, such as BBQ ribs, meat loaves, curry, steaks, etc. The restaurants are like a in a food court so you take your meal and find a place to sit. It's rather inexpensive in general.
Meatrea is located in Minami-Osawa, a suburb 40 minutes away from Shinjuku station by train. It is on the top of a shopping mall and is run by Namco, a game centre behind many other original projects (gyoza statidum, etc.)
They used to sell a "meat parfait" (ice cream with fruits and cutlets of fried pork), but it was replaced with a steak restaurant. I wonder how the flavours mixed?
