Samples of salo sculptures are placed in a special glass refrigerator, so any restaurant visitor can see and order any of them. At the museum’s restaurant, you can order different salo dishes, such as dessert “Marilyn Monroe lips”, which consists of bacon, ice cream and fruit. In addition, salo in chocolate and sushi-salo could be found in the menu. It is even promised, that whimsical and vip-clients will be able to get their own sculptures made of pigs fat! Pigs fat is everywhere in the restaurant. There are paintings by famous artists on its walls, all about salo, and even a fashion collection dedicated to this product.
