‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ Krusty Krab restaurant to open in West Bank

Share via

Fans of the “SpongeBob SquarePants” cartoon may dream of joining the happy sponge in an underwater adventure, but a new restaurant opening in the West Bank may soon give people a real taste of Bikini Bottom City.

Krusty Krab, an eatery modeled after the restaurant where SpongeBob and his neighbor Squidward Tentacles work on the show, is slated to open in Ramallah, reported the International Business Times.

The exterior of the building is a faithful representation of its cartoon model, complete with a lobster trap-shaped structure with nets on the windows and five flags strewn across the roof. Mr. Krabs even makes an appearance outside the building.


A Facebook page for the restaurant shows it’s still under construction and currently looking for employees. No word on what the restaurant will serve yet, but we’re betting on burgers and a Krabby patty.

If SpongeBob fans are really lucky, a Chum Bucket won’t open right across the street.
