Modern Toilet

The title might suggest a post about DIY bathrooms or a newly remodeled toilet in our flat, but it is in fact a restaurant.

Why a toilet restaurant? Wikipedia information:
Owner Wang Zi-Wei, an ex-banker, stated that his inspiration for the bathroom themed restaurant came from a Japanese robot cartoon character, Jichiwawa, who loved to "play with poop and swirl it on a stick." From this cartoon inspiration, he started a successful ice cream shop selling swirled chocolate ice cream on top of paper squat toilets. The chain of Modern Toilets started in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and now has 12 restaurants.

We are so fortunate to have one of those restaurants right here in Hong Kong (sarcasm).
The whole idea of soft ice cream resembling poo and menu items put in a ceramic squatty potty, is not my ideal dining out experience.

However Nathan and Mike were in Mong Kok one Saturday and took the opportunity to find a toilet seat and order some food.

Mike ready to dive in.



Nathan's dish was served in a tub, doesn't rate that high on the gross out factor.




The food isn't spectacular but the prices are not that outrageous either. I would believe it is understood you are coming here for the atmosphere and not a 5 star gourmet meal.
Modern Toilet is at least an impressionable first date. It could possibly the one and only date or maybe part of a funny story to tell your future kids.
