This Restaurant Serves One-Pot Meals Cooked By A Robotic Chef

This restaurant serves one-pot meals cooked by robot chefs


Craving lamb gnocchi, black risotto or zucchini noodles? You can order any of them at a restaurant in Croatia, where a robot chef can prepare around 70 different one-pot meals.

Its owners say they believe the BOTS&POTS Sci-Food pub in Zagreb is the only restaurant in the world where pot-cooked meals are prepared by a robotic stove without the involvement of a robot. people in addition to loading fresh ingredients into the equipment.

Devices that add oils and seasonings according to a digital recipe made by a chef.

In other similar restaurants, robots stir and fry fries and burgers, make pizzas, or serve and deliver meals, but “none of the robots make one-pot meals from fresh food,” said Hrvoje Bujas, co-owner of the restaurant.

It took seven years for Bujas’ partners to turn the idea into reality and open the restaurant last year, after investing more than 1 million euros ($1.07 million).

“It’s really a challenge to make a ready-to-eat meal from fresh food in the shortest time possible and as delicious as possible,” Bujas told Reuters in the hi-tech pub.

The customer seems to agree.

“The food is top quality,” says Lovro Petar Andrisek, 18, who came to Bots&Pots as a birthday present. “My plate is perfectly clean,” he laughs.

A robot chef named GammaChef is digitally “taught” by the restaurant’s head chef how to cook a meal, which is then memorized and repeated over and over.

The five robotic stoves can cook four meals in 15 minutes or nearly 100 meals in an hour, Bujas said, adding that one will cost 10,000 euros if put up for sale.

“We’re looking at expanding our business model through franchising,” says Bujas, explaining that the robot will speed up the cooking process and save money at a time of staff shortages.

“Such a restaurant with five robots can be run by a single person,” he said. “Our ultimate goal is to create a ‘no waiter, no chef, no cash’ space where you order, receive and pay for food without any human contact.”
