Ever sat on the toilet, and thought of devouring a delicious steak while you’re taking a shit? Well, Now you can. In Taiwan, there are a chain of restaurants called the ‘Modern Toilet’ that would like to change your imagination when someone tells you to ‘Eat shit’. Customers enjoy their food sitting on toilet seats, whilst eating their ‘diarrhoea noodles’ served in a toilet bowl, and wiping their hands with toilet paper.
The erratic inspiration for the decor came from, but of course, the toilet seat. Their website introduces the origins of Modern toilet.
“It all started when one of us was reading the manga, Dr. Slump on the toilet – and the rest is history. In the beginning, we mainly sold ice cream – a big pile of chocolate ice cream sold in containers shaped like a squat toilet.”
Their website explains that the restaurant grew in popularity, when people got wandering how it would feel like grossing yourself silly while you eat. While the food looks like shit, surprisingly, it doesn’t taste like it.
Customers flock back for the food, although named to disgust, their menu is a large selection of Chinese, Thai, Italian, and Korean dishes. A content customer posted his review of the food on the Modern Toilet website’s forum.
“I wish my shit tasted this good.” He said.
Other customers were disappointed at ‘authenticity’ of the restaurant. One customer suggested that he felt the experience was below his expectations.
“I thought I could take a dump while I was eating”
“I was pretty disappointed with that, I’ve always wanted to enjoy a shit and a proper dinner at the same time.” He said.
The restaurant has expanded to twelve outlets around Taiwan, and having expanded to Hong Kong recently. The span of the population increasingly curious of multitasking these two activities. (which was considered a definite oxymoron previously) This may not be a gimmick, and could massively find its way to your country.
