The Egyptian prison-themed restaurant "Food Crime" which had gained popularity due to its creative design was shut down by the relevant authorities on Saturday over expired food.

Authorities in Mansoura said the restaurant was also operating without a license.

Prior to its closure, "Food Crime" was doing well because of its novelty. Props like handcuffs, inmate number plaques, a prisoners' cage and even an electric chair were served up as welcome selfie-fodder.
