Interactive dining experiences have been trending in the culinary world for some time. Zauo Fishing Restaurant in Osaka, Japan, takes the concept to the next level.
Zauo Fishing Restaurant serves traditional Japanese food alongside a one-of-a-kind fishing experience. Inside the restaurant there are pools filled with live fish, including salmon, sea bream, and flounder. Equipped with a fishing rod and bait, diners are given the opportunity to catch their own meal. If you’re lucky enough to snag a fish, an accomplishment that’s celebrated with the sounding of a gong, the restaurant chefs will prepare it for you however you prefer — grilled, steamed, fried, raw, you name it. Sushi preparations cost extra.
