It's also packed full quirky eateries that are as interesting as the food they serve. If you're looking for fantastic food in a weird and wonderful setting, check out San Francisco's 6 weirdest restaurants.
1. Brainwash Cafe and Laundromat
Want to wash your delicates while you enjoy a high quality entree? Look no further than brainwash cafe and laundromat! Something of an accident in its inception, Brainwash has developed into an unforgettable eating experience. You can enjoy a delicious coffee or a stack of pancakes from the menu, while your clothes get clean in one of the many washers.
2. Tonga Room
Get yourself in a tropical mood with supper at Tonga Room. The whole dining room is done out in a kitsch retro tiki theme. Your dinner time ambient music is provided by a band playing on a thatched barge adrift on the lagoon that dominates the center of the floor. Oh, and come prepared to get wet – every half hour you'll be treated to a mini hurricane! The tiki cocktail menu is unmissable too.
Get ready for a heightened sensory experience at Opaque. This restaurant serves its delicious food in the dark. We're talking really pitch black, can't see the person you're dining opposite dark. All the serves at Opaque are blind and by going out to eat at the restaurant, you're invited to a night experiencing food just as they experience it. You'll notice the flavors and textures more than you ever thought possible.
You've heard of breakfast in bed. Well, at Supperclub you can enjoy your entire meal in bed. The restaurant has no tables or chairs – if you go there to dine, you'll be seated in a large white oversized bed. You'll enjoy a four course meal, and you'll definitely want to sample their cocktail menu, all while lounging around in the kind of comfort you'd expect from your bedroom. If that wasn't strange enough, you'll be entertained all the while by an acrobatic, trapeze and burlesque show.
5. Forbes Island
If you've ever wanted to travel to dinner on a boat and eat under the water, Forbes Island is the eatery for you! Diners are picked up by boat and ferried to the man-made island. You'll spot a wealth of seabirds and maybe even some sea lions along the way. Once you reach your destination, take some time before dinner to check out the lighthouse with its stunning views. When it's time to sit down and eat, you'll find yourself seated in a cabin below the water with portholes so you can enjoy the sea life while you enjoy your meal.
6. Red Door Cafe
Not for the faint of heart, the red door cafe is an eating experience quite unlike any other. Catering to parties of two only, the Red Door Cafe is extremely gay, extremely flamboyant, and extremely fun. The owner, Ahmed, is an eccentric one of a kind who sporadically interviews potential diners at the door to make sure he likes them. The decor features a brazen collection of adult artifacts, so this is not a place for the easily offended. As well as being utterly unforgettable, The Red Door cafe, offers up an eclectic menu of delicious food.
If you're feeling hungry in San Francisco, give the chain restaurants a miss and try one of these eateries for a dining experience you won't forget in a hurry.
