Want to grab your lunch without having to make small talk with the cashier or faff around with small change? That could all be a thing of the past soon thanks to Keuken, London's new vending machine restaurant. But it isn't just cans of Coke and packets of crisps on the menu - they're preparing salads, sandwiches and wraps in the kitchen before loading up the vending machines with the goods. The restaurant will be a cash-free zone, so you'll make your selection, pay on card and hopefully be in and out within a few minutes.
The restaurant's founder said that selling the products through vending machines rather than, y'know, actual humans, means they have more money to invest in the food, which means better quality and bigger portions. Less small talk and more food? Sounds like something we can get on board with.
Keuken is at 8 Eldon Street, EC2M 7LS
