Carton King Restaurant 紙箱王創意主題餐廳 located within Xitun district, Taichung, Taiwan is a place where paper and its products are being materialized into many other uses other than those functions which an average being uses it for on a daily basis.
The owner of Carton King created a business out of paper, creating furnitures, decorative pieces and even cutleries out of corrugated cardboard.
From the little lawn by the entrance, numerous mailboxes are on display with some creative art pieces. There is a photo Booth area consisting of a backdrop of lovely cardboard made walls adorned with heart cutouts and love signage, gorgeous white doves and several animals for selfies.
Entering the restaurant within carton king is amazing as every item from the wall, ceiling, lighting, tables, chairs, dividers, little architecture displays, cabinets, lanterns, plates, you name it, they have it all made from cartons. That being said, indulge in a variety of mouthwatering dishes such as the Boston herb roasted chicken leg, crispy pork fillet with apple honey curry, confit lamb chop and many others served up on cardboard bowls and tables.
Complete the experience with a visit to the conjoined souvenir shop that stocks a variety of DIY architecture sets of famous landmarks, paper bags, hats, lamp shades, carton rocking horse as well as some honey for a sweet ending.
Visit carton king for a environmentally friendly outing and have fun with selfies!
