Replacement Toilet Lids and Seats - This toilet themed restaurant is guaranteed to make you think twice about that chocolate ice-cream- This Old Toilet 800-658-4521
A CHAIN of toilet themed restaurants in Taiwan is single-handedly demolishing the old adage “you don’t s**t where you eat”.
Modern Toilet celebrates bowel movements and quick nips to the loo with a variety of dishes that look just like POO.
All the dishes and drinks are served in mini toilets, bidet-shaped bowls and mugs inspired by urinals and she-pees.
While the idea of it is enough to make most people gag, it’s popular with Taiwanese hipsters – and families.
Unlike in the West, where faecal matter is seen as something to be flushed away and not thought off again, poo is regarded as something cute and lucky in Chinese culture.
Superstitious Chinese folk believe stepping in poo is a good omen, and you are bound to receive good luck.
Similarly, if you dream about poo it is said to be a sign that something good is coming your way.
But regardless of old wives’ tales, it’s hard to believe that anyone would be pleased to see what is being served to them at Modern Toilet.
From horrifying thick turds of chocolate ice-cream to steaming portions of curry dished up in a mini lav, it’s less feast for the senses and more a game of mind over matter.
Adding to the bathroom ambience of the restaurant is the seating, with diners taking their seat on actual toilets.
On the menu they can enjoy either Chinese hot pot dishes, or European classics such as spaghetti or pork chop.
Every meal comes with a complimentary green tea and a serving of the eye-popping chocolate ice-cream that really could double for a poo.
There are Modern Toilet restaurants all over Taiwan, with the first one opening back in 2004.
In 2013 a toilet themed restaurant opened in Los Angeles.
However, US diners weren’t impressed with Magic Restroom’s menu, which included Golden Poop (brown curry), Constipation (noodles with soybean paste) and Smells Like Poop (braised pork over rice).
Puddings were even more likely in prompt a dry-heave, with Bloody Number Two (vanilla-strawberry sundae) and Black Poop (chocolate sundae) both up for grabs before the restaurant quietly closed down eight months after opening.
