Bei Tou Incinerator
Waste incinerator with a restaurant on its chimney.
Waste incinerators are not usually popular places to see and be seen. But there’s one exception: The Bei Tou Incinerator in Taiwan has a revolving restaurant near the top of its incredibly tall chimney.
It takes about 35 seconds to reach the Touch Star Revolving Restaurant, which is 120 meters up a 150-meter-tall chimney, in a speedy elevator. It’s said that the views over Taipei City from the restaurant are magnificent.
The restaurant serves mostly Chinese food, but there are also some western dishes available. Meals include an aperitif, soup, main entree, drink and dessert. For an example of the types of food you can expect at the Touch Star, the a la carte menu includes chicken cooked with Chinese rice wine and pigeon.
