A soon-to-be-open restaurant in Berlin, Germany has began advertising. Although it hasn't yet divulge its address or telephone number, it has revealed its menu -- human flesh.
In a prominent advertising campaign on the internet, in German newspapers and on television, the restaurant, Flime, is appealing for willing donors and diners to become members of what it hints at being a new dining movement. "Members declare themselves willing to donate any part of their body," the advertisement reads, adding that any resulting hospital costs will be taken on by the restaurant. They say they are also looking to employ an "open-minded surgeon". The location of the restaurant – if it exists – is being kept a secret, as is the identity of the owners and investors behind it. As a foretaste of its menu, Flime is suggesting traditional Brazilian dishes such as bolinho, which it describes as "fried tatar balls with a sweet-sour dip", or feijoada, a main course consisting of "various pieces of meat with black beans and rice". It does not specify what type of meat is used. The restaurant cites as its inspiration the indigenous Brazilian Waricaca tribe, which once practised the ritual of "compassionate cannibalism", or eating parts of the corpse of a loved one to emphasise the connection between the living and the dead, which was said to help with mourning.Everything takes like chicken, especially with battered and deep-fried and dipped in sweet-and-sour sauce, right? No? Well, we're not interested in finding out and we're keeping our asses out of Germany! Until the government swoops down and shutters the cannibal restaurant, that is.
