SushiCat Still Estonia’s 1st Bitcoin Restaurant

SushiCat Serves Delicious Sushi For Bitcoin

SushiCat located in Tallinn, Estonia is known for 3 things:  delicious sushi, beautiful women, and Bitcoin payments. The restaurant made news earlier this year when Estonian politician Silver Meikar, an independent candidate for European parliament paid his SushiCat bill in Bitcoin. He then posted his receipt to Twitter showing “Bitcoin EUR” as the form of payment; the picture went viral.

Estonia is ranked #1 in internet speeds around the world. Additionally, Google Trends shows that the keyword Bitcoin ranks first for Estonia.



SushiCat Payment Process

To pay in Bitcoin at SushiCat, you must first tell the waitress that you wish to settle in Bitcoin. Then you are given an iPhone which has a Bitcoin QR-code programmed with the amount you are supposed to pay. First your own phone must have a Bitcoin wallet and sufficient funds to cover the cost. Then you scan the QR-code with the QR-scanner from your Bitcoin wallet. This brings up the proper amount to send and all you need to do is click send.

Here is a video demonstrating how somebody paid at SushiCat:
