Looking to dine in a pink Mini Cooper? Want to be surrounded by old-school 1960’s era driving memorabilia? An old-school car-themed restaurant in Taiwan has you enjoying your next meal in the back seat of a Cadillac.
Did your mom used to scream at you not to eat in the car because you would get crumbs everywhere? Did you find it hard to eat and drive at the same time? Maybe eating in a car is not comfortable for you or brings back bad childhood memories, but for one restaurant in Taipei, Taiwan it is just the right gimmick to keep customers coming back for more and more. P.S. Bu Bu Restaurant not only boasts good food but a fun 1960s automotive – themed restaurant that includes not only license plates fuel stations, steering wheels, and parking meters, but even full cars used as tables for dining.
First opening the doors in 1999, P.S. Bu Bu Restaurant was established by two classic car enthusiasts, Sean and Ponny, who wanted to find a fun way to combine their love of classic cars with their passion of opening a restaurant. The food served harks back to traditional Western dishes as well as a few fusion dishes catering to the Taiwanese palate. While the food is great, it is not why people come to P.S. Bu Bu Restaurant – it is the old school atmosphere that brings people in and the fact they can eat their meal in a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air or a 1963 Cadillac Series 6200 Coupe.
Unfortunately, none of these cars are road ready; in fact, some have been cut up to be further converted into comfortable seating for guests. So if you are thinking about driving away in one of the classic cars, think again.
