When eating out one of the greatest annoying things that can take place is ordering one dish but receiving another. Amazingly, one restaurant is proposing just that – The Restaurant of Order Mistakes (a clever spin on a book called The Restaurant of Many Orders) popped up in Tokyo’s Toyosu district, and its task was to hire waiters with dementia.

The evidence of the pop-up restaurant, which was in a probationary period from June 2 – June 4, 2017, was that the staff that has dementia may get your order wrong. Though if you go in knowing this upfront, it alters your insight about those who undergo from brain disease. The familiarity makes you comprehend that with a bit of considerate on our part dementia patients can be functioning members of society.

Food blogger Mizuho Kudo visited The Restaurant of Order Mistakes and had a blast. She initially ordered a hamburger although ended up having gyoza dumplings in its place, however, everything turned out to be unpredictably delicious. Kudo also asserted that the waiters were full of smiles and seemed to be having tons of fun.

Immediately, after the trial period, one of the creators of the pop-up restaurant, Maggie’s Tokyo (Japanese version of UK’s Maggie’s Centres) are preparing for another pop-up event like this in September to honour World Alzheimer’s Day (September 21st).
