Scatogastronomy 101

When you look at the Modern Toilet Restaurant you have to wonder about the limits of concept driven restaurant design philosophy. When bathroom cartoon fetish meets restaurant design, things can go into the toilet with amazing rapidity. Personally I think I'll pass on my trip to Taipei for the moment, Christmas is right around the corner and I need the cash to buy the ScuzzCo Salad Tosser.

When the manager Yang Chung-chi says "When you see the food, it does look like feces". I don't need to call Miss Cleo to see there will be a lot of full plates for the busboys to move about. Who knows it might become a trendy place amongst hyper-anorexic models. I wonder if they 'll start using the catch phrase, "The Modern Toilet It's a great place; To Poop On!"

Hard to tell if it's slop or plop at toilet diner

TAIPEI (Reuters Life!) - This Taipei restaurant would consider it a compliment if customers called it an outhouse.

All 100 seats in the crowded Modern Toilet diner are made from toilet bowls, not chairs. Sink faucets and gender-coded "WC" signs appear throughout the three-storey facility, one of 12 in an island-wide chain of excrement-theme eateries.

Customers eat runny fudge-topped sundaes and chicken stews from mini plastic toilet bowls. They wipe their hands and mouths using toilet rolls hung above their tables, which may be glass-topped jumbo bathtubs.
