'Spongebob's Krusty Krab is Becoming a Real Restaurant But You'll Need a Passport to Get There
Remember back in fourth grade, when the coolest birthday parties ever consisted of bright yellow napkins, Patrick Star balloons, and a viewing of The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie? Well, now, fans of the Nickelodeon show can show their love for the series even further, as long as they're willing to take a bit of a field trip; a real life version of the Krusty Krab restaurant is being built in Ramallah, Palestine, right on the West Bank. No, this isn't a prank by Nick or the dream of a couple high teenagers; the world's first Spongebob restaurant is going to be a reality, albeit a very, very odd one.
According to the International Business Times, the restaurant — named Krusty Krab, of course — is designed to look exactly like the eatery on the show, down to the flags on the roof, wooden exterior, and a welcoming Mr. Krabs statue. And while no menu items have been revealed yet, there has to be Krabby Patties on the menu — what kind of replica would the restaurant be if it didn't have Bikini Bottom's most famous delicacy?
There's no information available on when the fast food restaurant will open, but as the Times noted, its Facebook page already has over 2,000 likes, so demand is high. Also on the page are advertisements for Krusty Krab employees; Palestine residents, if you're looking for work, this might be the gig of your (child self's) dreams. And for hard-core Spongebob fans not located in the Middle East? Get your passports ready, or at least be prepared to be Plankton-level jealous.
