Shenzhen is China’s legendary modern city, so what better place for the modern craze that’s already swept Taiwan: Toilet Restaurants!
Yes, that’s right… eateries dedicated to the modern sit-down crapper! Can you imagine selling any other restaurant with a promotional poster like this one?
At “Modern Toilet” restaurant, you sit on a gleaming clean pooper while stuffing your face full of hotpot, spaghetti, or deep fried pork cutlets, all served from miniature WC-shaped bowls.
Ice cream is how it all started, it turns out. “In the beginning, we mainly sold ice cream – a big pile of chocolate ice cream sold in containers shaped like a squat toilet.” This wasn’t hard ice cream, by any means, but soft, with a curly tail pointing to the sky.
And how could it not explode from there?
There’s even a giant yellow mascot, a steamy stinky smiling turd, rushes around the restaurant offering hugs and photo ops.
While the restaurant itself is full of seaters, don’t expect to find any in the bathroom. That’d be weird. Like most of China, in there, it’s all squatters.
