Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Is an M16 Carbine meat sandwich what you fancy? What about a vegetarian side called a "Terrorist Meal". If you answered yes, you can come on down to Buns and Guns Restaurant in which Middle Eastern city, devastated by a war in 2006?

Answer: Beirut, Lebanon

Everything is military-themed inside the restaurant, and patrons can listen to the sound of helicopters in the background while eating their meal. The restaurant's manager Yussaf Ibrahim says that his eatery tries to reflect the mood of the Lebanon capital during the 2006 war with neighboring Israel in which Beirut was leveled by Israeli bombings. Take caution however, a poster at the front of the restaurant simply states the company slogan that "Sandwiches Can Kill You".
2. While in Tokyo, how about a stop at "Nyotaimori". The name makes it sound like a nice place you think. But "Nyotaimori" translates into English as "female body plate". This restaurant takes to the tradition of eating what off of a nude women's body?

Answer: Sushi

The concept of "Nyotaimori" is taken to a whole new level. An edible body, with skin made of dough and sauce looking like dough is wheeled out on a hospital gurney. The hostess (or nurse) then cuts into the body with a scalpel to open it up, and letting customers dig around with the edible organs.

The practice of Nyotaimori is not common in Japanese culture but has gained notoriety worldwide for what it is.
3. A restaurant with a death theme isn't the most ideal place to have a meal, but if it is you can head to the Eternity Restaurant in Truskavets, Ukraine. What is this building shaped like?

Answer: Coffin

Built by a group of undertakers, the restaurant opened up in 2008 near the Ukraine border with Poland. The coffin isn't that big (20 meters long x6 meters wide x 6 meters tall), but it did grab the title as world's largest coffin when it opened. The coffin is made completely of pine, and visitors can dine on a meal called "Let's Meet in Paradise".

Inside, wreaths line the walls and there is one candle on each table, adding to the funeral feel.
4. This next restaurant angered lots of people in the nearby area when it opened. The restaurant "Hitler's Cross" is oddly not in Germany, or Europe for that matter. In which city was this restaurant?

Answer: Mumbai, India

The o in cross was designed to look like a swastika and the restaurant displayed a giant picture of the German chancellor when it opened in 2006. It only lasted a week however before the city ordered them to get rid of all Nazi and Hitler memoribilia.

The cafe then became the "Cross Cafe". The restaurant's owner told the media that the name was chosen because "We wanted to be different. This is one name that will stay in people's minds ... we want to tell people we are different in the way he was different."
5. Long before the Lord of the Rings movies, there was the Hobbit House in Manila, Philippines.

Answer: True

Most of the staff were rescued from the slums and streets of Manila by Turner himself.

His staff won't just serve tables, they'll entertain. The Hobbit House frequently has hobbit jugglers, magicians, comics, dancers, flame-eaters and quite possibly the world's smallest Elvis impersonator.
