Common wisdom would suggest that to encourage people's appetites, you'd want to avoid associating the food they're about to eat with the shit it will become. A new restaurant in Taiwan seems determined to stand that assumption on its, um, head.



Named the "Toilet Bowl," the restaurant's decorum is based on a toilet theme, including toilet chairs, urinal sconces, and even commode-shaped serving pieces.



So, PoopReporters, is this a step forward for the cause of Shameless Shitting? Or just a very bad idea whose time has come?



(Thanks to The Holy Shitter for the heads-up on this story.)

If I ever am in Taiwan fo any reason, I'm going to have to visit this restaurant.

And I'm going to try to bring Pink Fairy Lotus with me.

I wonder though if the eating area looks this good what about the bathrooms? we must send a poop reporter over to investigate.

Well, bowl me over! Wonder how long the gimmick will last? If the food's good, they'll do okay. If it's nothing special, I think the idea will get old fast. Unless, of course, there are lots of Poop Reporters and shameless shitters over there.

Eww gross! Having food served inside a toilet bowl plate?!

Feces girl, they probably never had the toilets serve their intended purpose.

Still, this makes me think... A restaurant where you don't have to nudge people to get to the toilets.

I certainly hope the prices are reasonable at this establishment.I don't think the decor will allow them to charge $12 for a hamburger like at Planet Hollywood.
Do you actually get to releave yourself in the special seating at the dining table? Maybe there are no rest rooms? Can you keep the soup "bowl" after you dine?

Two words: "Plausible deniability"!
(Is that spelled right?)
I can hear it now:
"You went lotta poop cause"...never mind.
Its a motif of things to come (or go).
At least there is a tub and sinks.
Then again, you may use those also.

According to a January 2, 2006 article in "Rate My Trend", the Toilet Bowl restaurant is still going strong.

Somehow, I'm just not hungry right now.

I wonder if they serve things like chili and beef stew?

OMG! That's EXACTLY what I thought of while looking at the soupcoction in the pic and trying to NOT disgorge the Kiss I was eating. "I'm glad that's not chili!" I could NOT eat there.

That's a very cool restaurant. I would want to keep the bowl and bring it to Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house. They would shit themselves! It would be awesome! (well, maybe not awesome when they shit themselves,....)

Is someone lying DEAD on the floor behind the food bowl? Maybe he had the "chili".

Now, about the seating arrangement in this restaurant: Do you sit down on the whole, closed thing? In that case, there's no backrest, which would get uncomfortable pretty quick. Or, do you put the lid UP and lean against it and...have...empty space beneath you whilst you dine? I'm not sure that would be comfy, either.

I think that some soft serve icecream would be best for dessert. Ummm. Has any one mentioned the pu pu platter yet?
