27,000 people are currently on the wait list to eat at a pop-up version of one of the best restaurants in the world
More than 27,000 eager diners are currently on the wait list, each one of them willing to shell out the $339 per person that Noma is asking for its unique, bizarre, and otherworldly cuisine. When reservations opened, it sold out in 90 seconds, making nearly $2 million in just a few minutes.
Redzepi is known for whipping up dishes that are hyper-local, crafted to artistic perfection, and above all, surprising. His main restaurant is based in Copenhagen, but he did a pop-up in Japan last January as well. The menu for this Australian version has been carefully guarded up til opening, but we know that he is a fan of some unusual Australian ingredients: think crocodile fat and fire ants.
Lucky diners from Down Under have been sharing their experiences on Instagram. Let's all celebrate Australia Day with a look at Redzepi's latest concoctions.
