London phone booth transformed into salad shop

Dr. Who's telephone booth (TARDIS) may function as a futuristic time machine, but these days call boxes are pretty much obsolete. Instead of letting one of them slowly decay, a London entrepreneur refurbished it into a pop-up salad bar. Called Spier's Salads, the shop launched earlier this month and is located in Bloomsbury Square, a park in central London.

From the outside, Ben Spier's tiny eatery looks like your typical phone booth. Inside, however, it's equipped with a fully-functioning fridge and offers a selection of fresh salads, costing between $5 to $8.50. Ben says his dishes are all organic and packed with protein, vitamins and minerals.

Spier's Salads is open every Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11:30am to 2:30pm. This week, Ben's doing a roasted chicken salad with sumac, pomegranate molasses, chilli and sesame seeds. There's also a cauliflower couscous, messicani pasta, rhubarb, radish and green beans in an almond pesto and a whole lot more.
