Nothing works up an appetite like the end of the world and Mad Rex has offered to host the survivor’s after party.
Mad Rex: A Dystopian Dining Experience
A first-of-its-kind, Mad Rex drips with decor reminiscent of the oft imagined end of days. Thrilling and fun, this restaurant somehow succeeds in combining graffiti and weaponry to create an industrial-salvage style artscape for diners to take in while enjoying an equally unique menu.
Mad Rex strives to keep their new American menu accessible to most price points. Although the setting would serve as the most uncommon stage for a party or special event, entrees hover between $14 up to the $30 mark, keeping it easy to justify a mid-week bite from their selection of locally-sourced and organic ingredients.
For those looking for an immersive post-apocalyptic experience, ordering from the Survivor Menu will have patrons searing their own entrees on smolderingly hot black lava rocks or pink Himalayan salt slabs. Survivors choose from a selection of rare sliced cuts of beef or fish, which arrive accompanied by sauces and spice blends by the names of “Wastelands” or “Guts and Glory.”
Pre-heated and carefully served with their choice of proteins, the black lava and pink salt rocks give adventurous eaters the opportunity to customize their bites with each squirt of lemon or sizzle of butter on the impossibly scalding rocks.
Truly, pink has never been less pretty than when paired with the rough and industrial stylings and meals of Mad Rex. Adorning the light fixtures as well as the menu, Himalayan pink salt plays more than just a supporting role. In addition to a feature of the Survivor Menu, the pink salt makes a cameo in the dessert options as well. For a weird and wonderful flavour combinations, order the ice cream served in a Himalayan pink salt bowl. The combination of salty and sweet is sure to please any palate.
This restaurant is more than just about the food. Mad Rex also offers some pre- or post-dinner entertainment in the form of virtual reality in their VREX Lounge.
With a menu of its own, players can sit back and select from an array of options ranging from viewing a sweet and safe sunrise to creeping the halls of a haunted mansion. Virtual reality can run from $1-$2 per minute and can be paired with a cocktail served in a Camel bag, for an IV inspired twist.
