Located in southwest Bolivia, Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat (4,000 square miles, to be exact).

guardLocated within the expansive salt flat is the Luna Salada hotel; almost everything in the hotel is made of salt—including the tables, the chairs, the floors, the walls, and even the beds.

The hotel sits at very high altitude, over 3000 meters, which makes cooking food at the hotel’s restaurant quite difficult. In the National Geographic video above, the hotel chef demonstrates a quinoa dish seasoned with—you guessed it—salt from the Salar de Uyuni. We’ve seen food served on salt blocks, but sitting at a table entirely made of salt while you eat is next-level.
