Foodies and green living aficionados should head to London’s Waterhouse, a hydroelectric restaurant situated on the bank of Regent’s Canal. This fully functional hip restaurant specializes in seasonal dishes, with a decent wine listing and plenty of vegetarian options.

Waterhouse, opened in 2008, uses its hydroelectric kilowatts to power the deep friers, stove top, and heating and cooling system. Watch the video above to see hydroelectric restaurant developer Phil Morgan give a tour of the eatery, including exactly where the water comes out of the canal. Morgan assures potential patrons that the restaurant isn’t just an ecofriendly endeavor, but a satisfying dining experience.

Shoreditch Trust is the charitable organization behind Waterhouse, committed to “working to address the causes of disadvantage in the most deprived areas of Shoreditch.” Shoreditch is in the Hackney borough of London.
