Dining Here is Always a ‘Crappy’ Experience

Posted on June 4, 2008

Wang Tzi-wei is the owner of a chain of twelve theme based restaurants in Taiwan. Now theme based restaurants are nothing new. Hard Rock Cafes have made a fortune for their owners with theme based restaurants.

The theme Wang Tzi-wei chose is just a trifle out of the ordinary, in fact one might say a bit bizarre. His choice, which was an idea he got from a popular Japanese cartoon, was a toilet.

In fact his restaurants are actually named “Modern Toilet”.

Patrons sit on toilets for seats and eat food off covered sinks and bathtubs. The food is served in a mini-toilet bowls and patrons drink out of mini travel potties. To finish the atmosphere, toilet paper is provided in the place of napkins.

Teens and young adults are the targeted customers, but quite a few older customers try it out at least once, just for the novelty. Reactions are mixed, although most comments are positive.

“It’s really unusual, so special that it doesn’t gross me out,” said Betty Tsai, 16, a Taipei high school sophomore trying Modern Toilet for the first time on a friend’s recommendation.

But for a few customers, the toilet humor is too much. “My son thought it was disgusting and didn’t know if he could finish his food,” said Taipei mother Lin Li-ju.

It makes me wonder, if all the toilets are on the restaurant floor, what fixtures are in the bathrooms?

My family and I walked past one on the way to a different restaurant. The sign on the building made it look a sign for a public restroom because it only had the men and women's bathroom symbols on it- so we didn't what we were looking at until we were in front of it. I got a few shots on camera of the storefront and the inside through the window.

This reminds me of an episode of Rocko's modern life where his entire house gets turned into a bathroom. I bet thats where they got the idea was from that show.

"It makes me wonder, if all the toilets are on the restaurant floor, what fixtures are in the bathrooms?" The whole kitchen is probably in the bathroom ;-p Great stuff by the way... Thanks :-)

So do they have bathrooms there or do you just lift the seat up and do it right there?

I'm still giddy with the thought that possibly, just possibly, I might have sat at the same toilet seat as Bob Hope.
