The Star Restaurant

66 comments

From spaghetti to soup, sushi to tacos, The Star Restaurant has all the world-renowned cuisines from Europe and Asia.

The Star Restaurant would make a great Lego set because it is a highly detailed ,one-storey modular restaurant of not one cuisine but six, three from Europe and three from Asia. It is a must-have for lovers of food, culture and Lego.

I built The Star Restaurant after being unable to decide between building a Italian, Chinese, Japanese or Indian restaurant. I thought to myself, `Why not have all of the world`s cuisines in one restaurant, like a formal food court?`. I was also inspired by an Agatha Christie Poirot novel (see my other projects) called The Western Star. The novel also included an Eastern Star. While the two stars were jewels, they could represent the two continents of famous food too.
