Food ordered using LEGO is delivered by dancing bots!
02 January 2019
Due to a creative collaboration between the LEGO Group, HiQ and ABB, a family meal at the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark, really is something out of the ordinary!
When LEGO House opened for the first guests September 28, 2017 the ambition was to give guests of all ages creative experiences that would trigger all senses.
In each of the two restaurant concepts the ambition is evident; a family restaurant that combines the dining experience with building LEGO bricks. And a gourmet restaurant offering top-class culinary experiences. To ensure quality, LEGO House has recruited help from some of the most proficient profiles among Danish chefs.
Build your menu in LEGO bricks
As the only restaurant in the world, the family restaurant MINI CHEF combines the food experience with LEGO bricks. As a guest, you will build your very own order in LEGO bricks. When you have created your order, you will scan it and send it to the kitchen, where minifigures are working. The food will be brought into the restaurant via a conveyer belt – just like when LEGO bricks are moulded in the factory. Two robots then serve the meal! Not everything is completely handled by minifigures and robots; the head chef for the restaurants in LEGO House is Mikkel Laursen, who won the prize as “Chef of the Year” in Denmark 2016.
“From the very beginning it has been the goal to create a dining experience, where the entire family gets a nice meal and an integrated LEGO experience. That is something MINI CHEF lives up to. There’s a lot of fun during the whole process – from building your meal, getting an insight into the minifigure’s work in the kitchen, till you’ll get your own serving directly from a conveyer belt and handed over by a robot” says Jesper Vilstrup, General Manager in LEGO House.
Culinary experiences with an elegant LEGO twist
LEGO House will also have the restaurant LE GOURMET – and as the name hints, it is a gourmet restaurant. The restaurant will offer refined culinary creations with a LEGO twist where guests will be involved in the experience.
The goal is to create a place that is suitable for a good and enjoyable dining experience with friends and family – and a natural choice for a dinner with business partners. In order to ensure that the high level of ambition is being met from the very beginning, LEGO House has received consultancy assistance from, among others, Nicolai Nørregaard – one of the creators of the renowned gourmet restaurant, Kadeau.
Besides the two complete restaurant concepts, visitors in LEGO House can provide a quick snack, a cup of coffee or a sandwich in the BRICKACCINO cafe. All dining in LEGO House is located in the public area of the house and does not require a ticket.
