Modern Toilet Restaurant

I bet you’ve heard of this restaurant before… Now who in his right mind would try to eat in a toilet? Fortunately, it’s just a theme – whew! Anyway, since I was visiting Kaohsiung over the weekend, I tried it.

To go to the Modern Toilet Restaurant, you have to take the Red KMRT line (yep, there are two lines now, the Orange line opened up a few weeks ago… but I’ll write about that on another post).

If you’re at the Kaohsiung Main Station, take the train that goes to the direction of GangShan. Stop at the Kaohsiung Arena Station and go up on exit number 4 (see the map below). Go to the direction of the Daba Restaurant/Gas Station (that’s the opposite direction you are facing when you get off the escalator).

Once you arrive at the corner of the Daba Restaurant, turn left and just go straight (if you see a Burger King at the other side of the road, you’re in the right direction). When you arrive at Jhengsin Street(that’s the first corner), turn left again.

When you see an establishment that has a faucet outside that looks like a toilet seat – BINGO! Welcome to the Modern Toilet Restaurant!

The walls are lined up with bathroom tiles. The tables are either kitchen sinks or bath tubs, and the seats are, well, toilet bowls. Talk about taking a dump while eating…

They serve regular lunch and dinner meals, although, the thought of having curry served on a “a toilet themed” plate is enough for me to lose my appetite. I only tried ice cream, and they serve it on a small toilet bowl – but this time, a taiwanese toilet bowl.

For an addition $NT30, you can have your drinks served in small plastic “portable urinal”.

The chocolate ice cream looked nice when it was served. But when it was all melted and gooey, you start to imagine something else… nuff said.
