We are all familiar with theme restaurants, but who ever thought a "toilet" restaurant would be appetizing?Cheng Ming-guang, owner of Modern Toilet, is proving that customers think the idea is scrumptious.
At Modern Toilet, based in Taiwan, meals are served in miniaturised toilets and drinks come in ceramic urinals. For an extra $30 you can order a cocktail in a souvenir bed pan that you can take home.
"People come here because it is interesting and different to everywhere else," says Cheng. "We have about 300 customers a day during the week but that rises to around 500 at the weekend, with many of them coming a long way to eat here."
And even though the Taiwanese economy has been going down the pan in recent months, Cheng's business is flush. Things are so good that there are now 12 Modern Toilet restaurants across the country and the company is looking to expand abroad.
But it remains to be seen how consumers in other countries will take to having their food served in receptacles designed to dispose of it.
The decor of the 100-toilet seat restaurant, in the busy Ximen district of west Taipei, is completely lavatory inspired. Thankfully, customers are supplied with real napkins and not rolls of toilet paper.
