While the almighty toilet bowl might be mans last refuge for solitude and peace as well as a place to ponder, some restaurateurs have thought that it just might work in a public space as well. Behold, the ‘Magic Restroom Cafe’ (don’t quite get the name), recently opened in Los Angeles, CA, possibly one of the few places on the planet where a weird sense of humor goes a long way. I’m not sure how sitting on a toilet while you eat is supposed to make me feel but I’m betting it’s going to make one heck of a conversation piece.
Oddly enough, the concept is based on the ‘Modern Toilet’ restaurant located in Taipei, Taiwan. Here customers can sit on non functional (thank goodness!) toilets and enjoy their… umm… meal. What is truly disgusting about the place is the menu that features weird names like – ‘black poop’ which is a chocolate sundae, ‘smells-like-poop’, a braised pork over rice, ‘constipation’ (zha jiang mian),” and the piece de resistance – ‘bloody number two’ which is actually a vanilla-strawberry sundae. Toilet humor can only go thus far before it borders on the inappropriate. But it get’s worse (and I know that might seem impossible, but it does) – each of the meals are served in little ‘toilet’ bowls, of the ceramic variety no less. So having a sense of humor is a must if you’re going to eat here but it doesn’t quite seem like a really family type place or a place you’d bring the wife. I mean after all, it does tend to demystify the sanctity and serenity of potty time.
