At The Restaurant of Order Mistakes, you might receive the wrong entree, but it will be delicious and delivered with laughs.
In most dining establishments, it’s a real frustration when the wrong entree is delivered in the place of one that was ordered. At The Restaurant of Order Mistakes (a spin on the book The Restaurant of Many Orders), customers don’t only expect to receive the wrong food, they take it with grace and laugh at the ordeal. This is because the pop-up restaurant in Tokyo’s Toyosu district only hires waiters with dementia.
As Spoon & Tamago reports, the restaurant was in a trial period from June 2 – June 4, 2017. Food blogger Mizuho Kudo raised awareness about the concept when she visited The Restaurant of Order Mistakes and had a jovial time. Reportedly, she ordered a hamburger and ended up with gyro dumplings. Everything was delicious, however, and she said the atmosphere prompts plenty of smiles and conversation.
The restaurant concept helps raise awareness about what it’s like to live with the brain disease and as a result, helps one cultivate more compassion. Additionally, it also proves individuals who suffer from dementia can be functioning members of society.
Now that the trial period is over, Maggie’s Tokyo (Japanese version of UK’s Maggie’s Centres) is planning another similar pop-up event to take place on World Alzheimer’s Day (September 21st).
