How far would you travel to eat prison food?

A restaurant in Singapore is testing out that question by turning your favorite show to binge watch into a place to binge eat. On June 16 and 17, Netflix will transform the OverEasy diner into Litchfield Penitentiary Cafeteria, serving up gourmet prison food on plastic trays.

Perhaps the most notable dish that executive chef Bjorn Shen will be using to fit the theme is a play on Nutraloaf — a controversial U.S. prison food that is usually rice or oatmeal-based and is often served as punishment for inmate misbehavior.

“I’ve made this dish look and feel like a Nutraloaf, but taste much better,” Shen told Mashable. “Mine’s made of mushrooms, cheddar, quinoa, pumpkin and nori.”

The other dishes on the three-course menu include a corn appetizer (with jalapeño, cheese and lime) and “gruel” for dessert, which is a white chocolate-coconut pudding with almond crumble. To wash that all down, the diner’s website encourages you to “stay hydrated with a tall plastic cup of our refreshing house beverage: water.” Yum!

The limited-time menu is a part of a marketing strategy to promote the 4th season of the popular Netflix show, which premieres this Friday, June 17. It joins a long list of recently-opened pop culture-themed restaurants and bars, including Saved by the Bell, Harry Potterand Seinfeld.

It’s either prison food or it’s not. High-end prison food is an oxymoron.
