The Modern Toilet Restaurant (A.K.A. the Most Unusual Valentine's Dinner Ever)


Floyd and I celebrated Valentine's Day at a very unusual restaurant here in Taichung, Taiwan.  


It's called The Modern Toilet, and the decor and some of the food are bathroom-themed.


This is what greeted us when we walked in.  Only in Taiwan!


The container by the front counter where the chopsticks are kept:


The glass tabletops were supported from underneath by these washbasins.


This was the table across from ours.  For some reason, our seats were regular chairs instead of the padded toilet lids that they got.


The booths came with these comfortable seat cushions.


Note the washbasin sticking out from the flower design on the wall.  And do you see the shape of the light fixtures?


Some menu items were relatively "normal".  Others called attention to themselves by their shape or the dish they were served in.


I ended up ordering the toilet curry chicken mentioned below.  I just couldn't see myself going to a restaurant like this and not ordering something in a toilet-shaped dish!


Here it is: my dinner!  And yes, it was delicious.


 Who wants dessert?  This is what they serve their ice cream in.


Extra seating near the exit:


What a fun experience!  I'm not sure I'd go back, but it was definitely worth it to go once.  You can't live in Taiwan and not try things like this!
