The underwater-world famous Kraby Patties, those signature sizzling burgers masterly grilled by Nickelodeon’s Spongebob Squarepants on the smash hit TV show of the same name, seem set to make their first ever debut on land in, of all places, the West Bank city of Ramallah.
According to the International Business Times, a restaurant modeled after the cartoon seabed eatery known as the Krusty Krab is currently under construction in the Palestinian city, complete with a statue of Spongebob’s money-grubbing boss, Mr. Krabs himself.
Aside from Kraby Patties, the restaurant, owned by Palestinian fast food company Salta burgers, will serve seafood and fish, as well as other dishes.
Though an official opening date for the dry-land Krusty Krab has yet to be determined, the venue’s Facebook page, which already garnered over 2,500 “likes,” proudly announced that waiters, cleaners, security guards and cooks are all welcome to stop by for an interview.
While the Facebook page did not state so explicitly, the restaurant will presumably not employ squids or starfish, contrary to its sister burger joint down in Bikini Bottom.
