You know the tactics restaurants use to make you eat more. The ones that like describing every ingredient of every element of a meal to entice you into spending more. You’re more likely to spend £5 on a side of carrots if they’re described as honey-glazed chantenays finished with vinegar from the tears of Modenese than simply sticky veg.
But a restaurant in Amsterdam called Green House Kitchen is openly capitalising on the relationship between weed and feed by encouraging you to vape while you eat.
And there aren’t any Haribo's or Kettle Chips in sight. Instead they’re serving up healthy haute cuisine with vaporisers next to the salt and pepper on every table.
Not into your White Widow? Not to worry, you can inhale infusions of rosemary and other spices and herbs to compliment your food.
Owner Celester Roskam says that vaping has made the restaurant possible:
I just didn’t like the idea of everyone smoking inside.It really completed the healthy concept I had in mind.
This way, we could also put spices on the table that really complement the meal when you vape them.
