Talk about having the best name for the business that you offer. This restaurant so perfectly named that you’ll be crazy not to try it.
El Diablo (The Devil) is a restaurant by the backdrop of the Timanfaya National Park in the Canary Islands. Given that it is situated by a volcano, it was impossible to build a conventional cooking or grilling system that would be able to withstand the heat.
Fortunately, architects Eduardo Caceres and Jesus Soto thought of a genius way to make use of the heat the volcano already gives out. They used nine layers of volcanic basalt rock to make the grill.
For 50 Euros, you can enjoy a delicious three-course meal, with a tour of the volcano itself and a to and fro transportation from your hotel. Now, who wouldn’t want to try that, right?
For those who are worrying, The geothermal heat that radiates off of the volcano “24 hours a day, 365 days a year, reaching between 450 to 500 degrees Celsius” is safe and the restaurant has been serving patrons since the 1970’s. The restaurant is practically fully booked every day.
Before opening, the restaurant already consulted volcanologists and scientists to assure that “no dangers associated with this technique of cooking at all.”
