Now, I've seen it all. Have the rest of you heard of the restaurant chain, Modern Toilet? This is a Chinese chain inspired by a Japanese anime character, which can loosely be translated to as, "Poo-poo Man." So, the restaurant logo is a pile of poop and most of the food is supposed to resemble product that leaves our bodies via the great sphincter. yup.
And you get to eat this delicious fair whilst actually sitting upon a porcelain throne. At least they are western style toilets and not squat toilets. But never fear, the squat toilet makes its appearance as serving dishes.
And for those who have never had the pleasure of excreting into a squat toilet before, um... well, yes, it does look like this. When I was teaching Jr. High in Japan the students would often draw what I thought was piles of dog poop and then tell me, "Oh, this is unko." - the Japanese word for poop. I didn't get that human turd could look that way until I needed to use the school's squat toilets. So all those children's jokes we have here in the west about laying a log, laying cable, etc, only happens when it hits a bowl of water, not a solid surface. I know, this is a lot of information! All in the name of cross-cultural understanding, right?
Here is a curry stew with a lemonade in the urinal as the bevie.
I can see this being popular with the teenage set, but interesting choice for family dining... "Hey, Grandma, wanna go to Modern Toilet tonight?"
And definitely an interesting choice for a date dinner.
But one thing I'm absolutely certain of and that's that my kids would get an enormous kick out of this place. But they are 9 and 11.
