article imageChef creates burgers that taste like human flesh

By Owen Weldon     Sep 28, 2014 in Odd News
James Thomlinson, a chef, got first-hand accounts of cannibalism in order to create a burger that tastes almost exactly like human flesh.
According to NY Daily News, Thomlinson read Jungle Ways, by 1920s journalist William Seabrook, as part of his research. Seabrook convinced a medical student to give him a piece of flesh to eat. Seabrook described it as a good, fully developed veal.
The chef also used an account by Issei Sagawa, a Japanese cannibal killer, who said that human meat melted in his mouth like raw tuna he would get at a sushi restaurant.
The burgers were inspired by an episode of The Walking Dead. The episode was the finale of season four, in which one of the characters discover the remains of humans that were eaten by zombies, according to Daily Mail.
According to Yahoo, Thomlinson''s secret pop-up restaurant, Therminus Tavernin, in East London, is where the burgers will be served. Customers will be able to order the burgers on Tuesday, to mark the start of the fifth season of The Walking Dead, which starts on October 12.
The burgers will start being served at noon, and they will not cost any money. They will be served for as long as stocks last. As of now the secret location of the restaurant has yet to be revealed, but fans can follow Thomlinson on Twitter and they can use the hashtag #terminustavern to find out the location of the restaurant.
