Most restaurants have their dishes cast in resin. You will find these displays of plastic foods in the front of many restaurants making it very convenient to order (assuming what arrives is what you hoped it was…this was usually about a 40/60 shot, with only a 40% chance of getting your wish.) — in Tokyo, Japan.
