this story my parents sent me reminds me that peter and i have been meaning to go to this restaurant:

Theme restaurants may have finally reached their pinnacle (or bottomed out) in the Toilet Restaurant, a chain of restaurants in Taiwan that features toilets for seating and serves noodle dishes in dog-dish sized ceramic toilet bowls.

Small entrees are served in urinal shaped dishes, while larger dishes are served in the toilet-shaped bowls. Noodles come in small bathtub-like containers.

Among the most popular entrees are those that resemble material that one commonly associates with the commode, including curry noodles or chocolate ice cream.

i guess i shouldn’t be surprised that alot of the comments left on the story have been of the most prudish variety. and of course some people seem to have mixed up taiwan with china.
