The new season of Netflix's "Orange is the New Black" hits screens on June 17, and if you want a taste of prison life, you could swing by the pop-up Litchfield Penitentiary Cafeteria in Singapore. The experience and food are free of charge.

Don't expect polite waitstaff here. It is a prison after all, so you'll have to follow the rules.

Here's the "I'm an angry guard and you're all just meat for the grinder" look.

Don't try smuggling contraband. That list includes chewing gum as well.

The pop-up diner will only be open for the next days before it reverts back to being a swanky American joint called OverEasy.

While this didn't happen to me (thankfully), you'll have to take your chances.

And like any good prison experience, be sure not to smile for your mugshot.

Inside, you'll be able to enjoy the company of the characters from the show, but they won't talk back and give you lip.

The spartan layout of the Litchfield Penitentiary Cafeteria means you'll have to share, and guards will be breathing down your neck to eat fast.

As with any good prison-themed cafe, you don't have a choice. But you do get lots of water.

You may have to check under your tray for any contraband.

This doesn't look very appetizing.

Even the inmate servers are grumpy. You would be too, if you had to eat this every day.

Is that...brown sauce?

The Nutraloaf was filling, though I wouldn't exactly call it delicious. The spicy butter in the corn turned out to be the best thing while the white chocolate gruel wasn't my kind of dessert. At least the water's great. Luckily, you don't have to pay a single cent to eat this, so it's probably worth a trip anyhows.
