Get Your Reservations Set….

I know bathroom humor is lame, but I just couldn’t resist this email I got this email from a good friend I used to work with. Living with all boys in my house, I’ve had to learn to laugh at more things than I used to. Check out this restaurant in China. Would you be caught dead eating here?! Gross. Clean out the toilet bowls and Have a great weekend!!

Modern Toilet is a restaurant in Taipei . It accommodates 100 seats with each made from toilet bowls. The specialties at the restaurant accompany sink faucets and the food is served in mini plastic toilet bowls. The toilet rolls that serve for wiping hand and mouth are hung above the tables, which may resemble glass-topped jumbo bathtubs.

This is just wrong? Chocolate ice cream!?

Ok, who’s bringing this idea to the US?

Have a great weekend! See y’all Sunday night!

    LOL!!! That is just plain wrong. I don’t think that I could stomach eating out of a toilet bowl. Who would have ever thought this would be a good idea for a restaurant, they must have really clean toilets.

    Thank you for such wonderful recipes. I love your blog and share it with everyone I can.

    PheMom says:

    Yeah, I had heard about this place – freaky! Very funny though. It is funny having all boys in the house, isn’t it!

  21. 21
    Lisa says:

    OMG! This is so funny! My kids were looking over my shoulder and cracking up. I don’t think my son (who is king of potty humor)would like to eat there. He had this awful look on his face:)

    preppy little dress says:

    no way, brown ice cream in a mini toilet – WTF! hilarious! ha! ha!

    Amanda says:

    All three of my brothers have served Asian missions–and those cultures all seem to have an interest in bodily functions. The Japanese even have all those tech toilets that do EVERYTHING for you. So, it doesn’t surprise me that there is a toilet themed restaurant. I’d TOTALLY eat there!

    oh my, that is ridiculous! i love bathroom humor, however.

    Beth says:

    My hubby says he would love to eat there!!!

    k.m.b. says:

    my friend actually just went to an ice cream place in Logan UT that served ice cream in kitchen sinks. If your group successfully “cleaned the sink”, you got a bumper sticker. Kind of the same idea, but not nearly as horrific!

    Jenny says:

    Too funny! Love all the comments. I figured most people wouldn’t want to eat there. It would be fun to tour the place, but I don’t know about sitting down to eat!

  31. 31
    HoneyB says:

    LOL, OK, I could not do it. Still, funny to see. Bet the kids would think it was funny though!

  32. 32
    Culinarywannabe says:

    Oh that is just wrong! I don’t think I could ever eat there, although I’m sure this would make a killing if it was put in Times Square here in nyc. Thanks so much for your comment on my blog – really like yours as well and look forward to stopping back in!

  33. 33
    Lisa says:

    I agree, that is just totally wrong.

    Did you ever hear any more about the dog that was left in the car?

  34. 34
    Anne says:

    Wow, that’s horrible but so funny! I have a blog award for you too- 🙂

  35. 35
    Jenny says:

    Hi Lisa,
    No, I haven’t heard anything more about the pup. The officer said he would call if the guy got sited. I’m assuming the guy showed up shortly after we left and the dog was not in distress. I hope at least he got a rude awakening to see the officer at his car. Loser!

    Thanks so much for the award Anne, you are so awesome!

    PaniniKathy says:

    Oh wow!! How do they ever keep people from actually USING those, um, seats?? That’s so hilarious.

    hot garlic says:

    Where in Taipei is the restaurant located?! Shame it wasn’t there when we lived there, though I must be honest, this wasn’t the strangest thing I saw in Asia! I’ve got stories girl, if only I had pictures! I should have brought it with me anywhere I went to capture any craziness at a moment’s notice!

  38. 38
    Sarena Shasteen says:

    I don’t know why, but I find this so interesting! It is one of those things that you think is so wrong at first, but you can’t help but want to go there!

    Live.Love.Eat says:

    WOW, I am speechless. I’m so happy to live here!!!!!!!

    Ewww! So appetizing! Honestly who thought of this? . . . Jenny I tried out your BBQ Sauce recipe last night! It was amazing! My parents stopped by for dinner and they loved it!

    eatme_delicious says:

    Oh wow I don’t know that I could stomach eating at that restaurant! Interesting idea though.

    Bridgett says:

    You have to laugh at the pictures of the food served in toilets. That is too funny!

  43. 43
    Bunny says:

    Jenny who would come up with something like this!!! I think I’d have to bring clorox wipes with me if I ate there!! LOL!!

  44. 44
    snozzberries says:

    OMG!!! Thanks for the best laugh I’ve had in awhile!!! My 8 year~old son is dying to go there now!!! What’s up with boys?!!!! 🙂

    Erin says:

    We live an hour and a half south of Taipei but take many trips there for my husbands work. We are going at the beginning of the month and I WILL get my picture taken there! I have heard of it but never seen it in person. I have 4 boys (including my husband -the biggest kid of them all) and I hear ya about the bathroom humor.

  47. 47
    Noor says:

    EWWW, I know my dh showed me this last year and I was so grossed out. I just do not see the humor in this what so ever.

    Donna in VA says:

    That ice cream is just wrong on so many levels. Eeeewww!
    But I couldn’t help but forward it to my boss. heehee

    Deanna says:

    I can’t even find the words to type how nasty that is. My hubs was really sweet and brought me a cup of coffee into the bathroom and I wouldn’t even drink it. I have a real bathroom “thing”! NASTY!!!

    Jasi says:

    That’s pretty funny. Western style toilets are really strange to some folks. About as strange as the restaurant is to us. I’m not sure who gets the last laugh, though. =) Theme restaurants do -really- well.

    Furniture you poop in? Really? No one thinks that this could be weird to other people?
