Yesterday, I went to Modern Toilet with some friends.
That's right bitches. Modern Toilet is a RESTAURANT.
For the disbelieving..here's their website.
deter hungry and thirsty patrons in the Shilin area.
It's (understandably) more popular with the younger, high school crowd. I can't imagine my mom
scooping chocolate ice cream out of squat toilet.
The seats are made out of real toilets...with designer lids.
And YES, they do open.
There's some tasteful art that they exhibit throughout the restaurant.
All three floors of the restaurant. Notice the golden turds. You can buy your own for $6 USD each.
Oh yea, I forgot. We came here to EAT.....this is my friend's curry toilet bowl. TASTY!
The turd holds extra surprises.
This was my dish...Beef Hotpot in a Toilet Bowl. I don't know how I feel about those sauce stains on the rim.
Our ice cream arrives in Taiwanese Squat Toilet Bowls. My friend was pissed that they didn't serve
it in the traditional "Japanese Poo Swirl".
Closing Thoughts on Modern Toilet: Modern Toilet is obviously one of those theme restaurants
where the emphasis on going isn't on its fine cuisine. You're basically there just to take pictures and
act like a retard with your friends. (which I did EASILY) But as I am a serious eater, I DID have some
suggestions for the place...namely that they work on expanding and improving their beverages some
more. The iced teas were way overbrewed to the point that noone finished them, and I was extremely
disappointed to see they were served in traditional glasses. Come on, if you've gone so far...why not
the way and over the top and give me my drink in a champagne flute that looks like a urinal, or if
that's too gross, at least a kitchen sink? And I KNOW my friend Ellen was thinking, "WHERE'S THE
ALCOHOL?!??!" Hahahahaha...but otherwise no major complaints. The place was clean, the staff was
patient, the food was acceptable, the drinks sucked...but my friends and I couldn't stop laughing the whole
