Number one at number two.
Inspired by the 'Modern Toilet' restaurant in Taipei, the 'Magic Restroom Cafe' has just opened in Los Angeles county, and offers westerners the same shit-themed experience. Hands down the worst place to take a first date. Wow, you're even more beautiful than your pictures -- let's talk about doodoo.
patrons...sit on (non-functioning) toilets to eat a variety of Taiwanese-style dishes named after poopy things. Eater LA also reports that a lot of the food (which has gross names like "'black poop' (chocolate sundae), 'smells-like-poop' (braised pork over rice), 'constipation' (zha jiang mian)," and "'bloody number two' (vanilla-strawberry sundae)") is served in little ceramic toilet bowls.
Listen -- I'll be the first person to admit I won't hesitate to eat a snack on the toilet. But only if it's my own toilet, I'm not eating anything in a public restroom. Also, it's only a matter of time before some kid or drunk actually uses one of those toilets like sometimes happens at Home Depot. Relevant fact: my roommate and I actually nicknamed the pizza place closest to our apartment Diarrhea Pizza. It's delicious going down, but after it's all the way down and nearing the exit you just want to keel over and cry for two hours. Dammit now I want one. Learn to love the pain -- that's the secret.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots of the 'Our service is the Shit', 'Come Hungry, Leave Crappy,' etc. etc.
Thanks to Jody, who tried to tell me you can get sick from eating in the bathroom even though I've been doing it for years (plus resting my head against the microwave when I'm cooking something) and never had a problem.
