    Pshh! Who ever heard of German cuisine??!!!

    I’ve heard it said that the true driving force behind German militarism in the past was the search for something to eat that wasn’t stuffed in a sausage casing.

    At one time I had proposed to myself to write a book, and I had an idea for a scene in such a member’s only restaurant. A very posh, stylish (and dimly lit) restaurant, where people would sit down to eat after having some part removed. Or the top of their skull, a la Hannibal. The idea frankly sickened me a bit too much. But I fancied that the most expensive dish should be the heart of the chef. Yeah, I wish I could get that scene out of my head, the hospital smells from anesthetics mingled with blood oozing from fresh amputations onto evening dresses and tuxedos, and some very, very pale patrons.

    I’m reminded of the Dish of the Day in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (or maybe Courtship Rite by Kingsbury).

  5. Rob Cruickshank says:

    It’s a great little spot, but dinner costs an arm and a leg.

    For the people getting upset, the food is voluntarily provided. So you don’t have to lose your head about it. And besides, I bet the wait staff in such a place is trained to be very disarming with their more irate patrons.

    They’re just responding to demonstrated German market demand, y’all:

    Ah, at last a restaurant with real heart! I hear the kitchen staff uses a lot of elbow grease. We went there the other night because we were having friends for dinner. I’d recommend the lady fingers served with head cheese, followed by filet of sole. But avoid the Napolean dessert — I hear it’s not fresh. :-)

    Cannibalism with voluntary donors? It could start two trends at once: new cuisine sensation, and new far-out death ritual. If it ever became legal, it should thrive.

    Eddie? That’s a rather tender subject.

    I find this story and the attendant commentary puns in poor taste.

    Oh, why did this have to be in Germany? Sometimes it gets so hard to admit your ethnic background…

    Man, I am glad I live in Spain sureall as it is it is not that bizarre!

    Didn’t know that Meiwes got early release.

  16. johnmcorg says:

    On the upside, they do have very nice TVs and sound systems at the restaurant.

    I have felt for many a year that I would taste quite delicious to the discerning long-pig gourmand. . .enough muscle and meat to feed the whole clan, often massaged and beer fed Every Day. It would be too painful to check, but I’m sure my flesh is well marbled with just enough subcutaneous fat to make roasting and BBQ a breeze.

    I feel rather proud about this; but sorry Deutschland. . .too far for me to go (even one way), if any reputable establishment in the Pacific Rim however. . .wait, no. . .on second thought: nevermind.

  18. Teapunk says:

    Must be a hoax, with a well chosen location to reinforce the prejudice that if Germans are not Nazis, they are perverts (or both).
    I’ll bet there are some artists behind the whole thing, holding up a mirror to society and whatnot.
    There is nothing about this in the German media, only a website for the supposed restaurant.

    Is “long pig” kosher?

    How about a full baby? I think I could stomach that…

  22. juepucta says:

    I’ve been joking for years that if i ever open a restaurant i am going to put Long Pig on the menu. Just two lines, something like “long pig; ask your server for availability and price”. Of course, i think 99.99% of the time i wouldn’t have it available.

    Perhaps it will be located next to the Body Integrity Identity Disorder clinic.

    After tasting the food, we noticed that something was definitely afoot.

  29. GrumpySteen says:

    It’s an interesting idea, but you just know that some clown will donate and the place will go out of business when word gets around that the food taste funny.

    Soylent Green is People! (just had to be the first)
    Did you see that they are doing a remake?

    Might be a good time for it.

  31. Brainspore says:

    Ugh, no thanks. Just a Soylent green salad for me.

    If it’s true we taste like chicken, that feijoada isn’t going to be any good, sorry.

  33. HarveyBoing says:

    Reminds me of the classic joke. “A pig that good, you don’t eat him all at once!”

    Wasn’t the cannibal in that IT Crowd episode also a German?

    Coincidence?!?!? HMmmmmmmm

    PS: as soon as I find the location, I will post it – and how the food was ;)

  36. Boil says:

    I hear the adjoining watering hole (aka, bar) is equally awesome…

    Its name…?

    Grok

    Guess what they are serving…?!?

    ;^p

    The adult in the sculpture is either a really ugly woman or a dude with quite a set of man boobs.

  38. OldRipbeak says:

    Ah, I see from the description in the link to that picture that it is the former. Not exactly a winning advertisement for cannibalism.
