World of Warcraft, the Restaurant 73

An Anonymous Coward writes "China's online gaming themed service industry appears to be booming, riding China's fascination with online gaming all the way to the top is a Chinese restaurateur with his World of Warcraft inspired eatery." I would recommend the Critter Bites and the Haunted Herring, but would warn against the Carrion Surprise.

    Roflberry Pwncakes?

    • Cumberland Farms sells these. (AKA Jimmy Dean)

      They're great for diets! Right mix of low-medium grade carbos, sulphur from the egg, and protein sausage packaged at 4 oz a piece so you don't overload on 17 Oz of large bad pepperoni pizza at lunch.

  • I wonder if the sanitation is also inspired by WoW. If so, we are soooo screwed. There will be zombies everywhere.

      You have to fight with opposing patrons for each time you go up for food.

        Actually there are three catches. You have to sit down while you eat and if you get up from the table too soon, you won't notice the full benefits of the dish you just ate, which time out anyway in a few minutes.

        I recommend the Ravager Dogs, except that you don't want to know where the meat comes from.

  • a pc gamer editor once said "if there's a better game then warcraft, I'll eat an orc!" Well, I guess now's your chance, its the other green meat on the menu.
  • Were I a server there I'd go quickly mad at the number of geeks who would come in and say:

    When in a large group: The swarm is eager to feed!

    When wanting more of an all you can eat item: More! I want more!

      THRALL: Why dont you just order a large, Hellscream?
      HELLSCREAM: I don't want a large Hellscream. I want a goddamn liter of cola.
      BURGER GUY: I don't know what that is.

      I only have two words for you:

  • Would there be a goldfarming operation in the back, offering their services on occasion to select customers?

    If this opened in the US would Blizzard sue them out of existence?

    I think probably.

      Ask your neighborhood baker. Want him to put a popular cartoon character on your kid's birthday cake? Up against the wall, you filthy copyright terrorist!
      • My cousin was a baker (and also a pretty good artist - she painted too) for almost 20 years and though I'm not sure if she'd do them for everybody, I remember distinctly her bringing home a few cakes for various parties with Micky Mouse and Donald Duck on them (her own renditions drawn in icing).

        • by Detritus ( 11846 )
          I knew a few bakers who used to do it until they were threatened by the copyright holder's lawyers. You would think that the lawyers would have better things to do.
  • wow. I can only imagine the look of abject disappointment when my gf realizes "this" is the fancy restaurant I'm taking her to.
  • Do you have to order and eat 10 loafs of bread and 10 glasses of water before you can have a bowl of soup and some milk?
    • You can get to the soup faster if you dine as a group, but then they only serve one bowl of soup and you all have to roll for it.

    So does this mean I'll leave there with a nice stamina buff, some extra mana per 5 sec, and look like a ninja?

    The big downside is that you have to kill lots of the staff to get your bill to drop.

  • Assuming this guy actually got permissions from Blizzard and they don't IRL permban him, all this guy has to do is offer an internet hotspot and he'll be China's version of McDonald's. He'd have WoW addicts in there 24/7 grubbin' and gamin'.
  • When they mentioned theme, I was hoping that all the staff would cosplay as a WOW character or that the devoted fan would go in character. It was rather disappointing that neither was the case.

    Ever since I started killing boars for their intestines, I dreamed of the day where I could taste just a slice of WoW. I just hope this restaurant follows canonical recipes.

    Bear Meat + Boar Intestines + Spider Ichor = Crazy Delicious Blood Sausage [thottbot.com]

    Mmm, I can smell it cooking right now.

      Most of our guild (Crusty Blades/Alliance/Kilrogg) live in or near Tucson, which has an annual science fiction convention, and we had our first guild party there last year and again this year. It was lots of fun, with WoW-themed food analogs. I made "Dragon Breath Chilli", which was Alton Brown's Pressure Cooker Chilli.

      Lots of fun, lots of good food, and you got to put faces to names!

  • Every day I'm so glad I quit WoW long ago... It gives me the chance to laugh at those who still take it so damn seriously... :)

  • However you have to go through ten different members of the waitstaff until you find one that actually drops your meal.
  • ...but the waiter told me I needed to level some more before I could eat it.

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
