Want to sit on a toilet bowl, drink out of a urinal and eat out of a toilet bowl? Then this is the perfect dining option for you. We stumbled on this restaurant while walking around our hotel looking for a place to eat. Actually, it didn’t even occur to me that it was a restaurant. There was a huge "Modern Toilet" sign outside the building and what struck me then was why in hell did this building need to announce to the whole world that they had a modern toilet. Didn’t everyone have a modern toilet? The Hubs had to point out to me that it was a RESTAURANT which was featured on Ch8 some time back. Sigh .. this from a man who doesn’t watch TV.
Anyhoo, the whole place is set to give you a "dining in the toilet" experience. There are no chairs – guests sit on toilet bowls and tables are made of a piece of glass set on top of porcelain sinks or bathtubs. Some tables are located in a bathroom, complete with toilet paper, toiletries and a bathrobe. The decor in the restaurant even includes lamps in the shape of poop and giant sink plungers hanging from the ceiling.
Your meals come served either in a toilet bowl, sink or bathtub. Drinks are served in urinals and given that we both ordered iced tea, the resemblance to the real thing was totally uncanny. Food was so-so, no surprise since this was a novelty restaurant. But I hardly touched my meal. I think I lost my appetite the minute I lifted the toilet seat next to me. It was clean and unused but the mind does funny things. I felt like l was in a toilet, had touched a toilet bowl (well, duh) and really needed to wash my hands. My stomach did a little flip and any appetite I had was flushed away (pun intended! :)).
Overall a fun dining experience. Highly recommended for those with the stomach for poop jokes and the like. I dare you to order the chocolate ice cream for dessert. Need a hint on how it’s going to come out? *wink*
