ROGO’S: The World’s Largest Rollercoaster Restaurant

Decorated in a bold techie decor with a pattern of vibrant colors, bold stripes and the sleek twisted stainless steel mechanisms of the roller coaster railings, ROGO’S is where food meets amusement. If it weren’t for the lack of concert style lighting and throbbing club music I would think it is required to buckle up for the ride, but you don’t, because the only thing that is making loops, spirals and spins at approximately 2-8 km/h is your food coming down a tornado track!

Candylicious: Mommy in a Candy Store

Candylicious is not just a candy store— it is a sweet tooth destination chocked full of 4,000 assorted sweets; or as they like to call it a feast for the senses. It kind of gives me a psychedelic sugar buzz just walking in. It’s a candyland on steroids, a color wheel spun out of control, a mish mosh of all things scrumptious and definitely every child’s dream come true.

Indigo Indian Buffet

Now we are talking…. Right?

Asia de Cuba — Barrio Chino

I should’ve been born in the steamy streets of Havana’s Barrio Chino eating a spicy egg roll and washing it down with a cold minty mojito. I think I would’ve felt right at home dancing the conga or the mambo under the Asian lanterns that light the neighborhood of Havana’s uniquely flavor-fused, sui generis community — known as Barrio Chino de la Habana or Havana’s Chinatown.

Mikado Cafe

For me, eating at a Japanese restaurant is like devouring an art canvas. I approach it with hesitation because who really wants to muck up something so beautiful? I feel like saying, ‘Let’s just shellac this and make it a centerpiece and then go eat something less attractive.’
