* In the short story ''Glyceride'' by Creator/JunjiIto, the protagonist's family runs a barbecue restaurant. When her brother violently attacks her, he's killed by their father, who then serves him to the restaurant patrons. The restaurant briefly becomes hugely popular, but trade dwindles again when the meat runs out, forcing the father to cut off his own leg to serve instead.

When her brother violently attacks her, he's killed by their father, who then serves him to the restaurant patrons. The restaurant briefly becomes hugely popular, but trade dwindles again when the meat runs out, forcing the father to cut off his own leg to serve instead. The first half of the story is exposition, explaining how this all happened; being forced to live above the restaurant and essentially being constantly marinated in the greasy fumes from the grill screwed up the physiology of the son and father, with the daughter managing to mostly insulate her room. As a result, the grease had made the two men especially tasty (and also drove them completely insane). How bad is it? [[spoiler: The ending reveals that the fathers bodily fluids have been replaced by grease, which is implied to have been true for the son as well]]



* Subverted in ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}''. In a future where eating cloned human meat[[note]]Along with French-speakers and New Zealanders[[/note]] is perfectly legal, fast food chains like Long Pig proudly advertise their practice of serving people to people.

Though keep in mind that the fast food chains only sell meat from clones grown without a brainstem, so they were never ''alive'' per se.



* The ''Series/CriminalMinds'' episode "Lucky" had a cannibal who owned a little BBQ restaurant. You can probably guess how things proceeded.

A variation is the UrbanLegend that street vendors use [[ReducedToRatburgers disgusting]] and/or [[EatTheDog stray]] animals to make meat products such as kabobs. It may be TruthInTelevision in some parts of the world. Indeed, the phrase "long pork" comes from a euphemism for human flesh in the South Pacific, some areas of which did have cannibalistic traditions. {{Serial Killer}}s such as Fritz Haarmann, Karl Denke and Robert Pickton have also been accused of doing this with the meat of their victims. There are also rumors that human flesh tastes like pork (pigs are the only meat animals which, like humans, have a genuinely omnivorous diet), except better for some reason[[note]]FridgeLogic suggests that anyone who knowingly ''tries'' human flesh is likely either too insane to offer a trustworthy testament as to its quality, or so desperate from starvation that ''anything'' would taste good.[[/note]]

** Also, the exact term is called "Unaccountably Peckish", which confirms that Seeking Mister Eaten's name is associated with cannibalism,, one of the ''least'' disturbing things about that quest. Also, demons will serve you human flesh at their parties, but what else is new?
