‘The Restaurant of Order Mistakes’ Employs Waiters With Dementia

quote [ On Friday last week, a curious restaurant popped up in Tokyo’s Toyosu district. It was called “The Restaurant of Order Mistakes” (注文をまちがえる料理店), a twist on The Restaurant of Many Orders, Kenji Miyazawa’s 1924 tale. Sure, it’s clever, but why a name for a restaurant? ]

My mum died from dementia but I think that she would have had fun in this sort of setting at a point in her illness. It might even have helped her stave off the disease for a bit longer.

Reminds me a bit of the Alzheimers village in the Netherlands: http://www.alzheimers.net/2013-08-07/dementia-village/ —the Alzheimers village in the Netherlands.

Some may feel that the customers are laughing at the ill. This might be true but my experience is that laughter helps more than it harms, in this case.

I always thought the Restaurant of Order Mistakes was Taco Bell.

It is a mistake to order anything from Taco Bell... But it is my guiltiest pleasuriest guilty pleasure.

As soon as I order at a restaurant, I always get this nagging feeling I should have ordered something else. At least at the Restaurant of Order Mistakes, instead of getting something I didn't want, I'd get something I didn't expect. Win-win!

If I had a replicator, I would always use the Random button, so a restaurant like this sounds good to me.
