Philippines Weirdest Restaurant
Hobbit House, a restaurant in Ermita, Manila, has been named the weirdest in the world for its dwarf waiters and cooks. The restaurant, which has a “Lord of the Rings” theme, topped the list of the “world’s weirdest themed restaurants” compiled by CNNGo.
The restaurant-bar was opened by former Peace Corps volunteer and college professor Jim Turner in Mabini Street in 1973, and was moved to M. H. del Pilar street in 2007.
“Diners of a sensitive bent might balk at the political correctness of it all, but the waiters are of an indisputably sunny disposition,” writer Duncan Forgan said in the CNNGo article.
