And I thought I had seen everything...

We leave for our spring break trip to Hong Kong in 12 days. Somehow I do not think I will be rushing to eat at the restaurant that serves this lovely set menu.

Yes, that is what you think it is. A toilet, a urinal and something that resembles a pile of poop.

I will pause a moment for you to pick your jaw up off the floor...


Modern Toilet, which has seven locations in Taiwan, has one location in Hong Kong. According to Time magazine, the restaurant is decorated with lights and dish covers shaped like feces and seats customers at glass tables with sinks underneath.

Modern Toilets food is served atop miniature toilet bowls, ice cream dishes are shaped like squat toilets and beverages are served in plastic urinals that customers can take home as souvenirs.

The desert menu features shaved ice concoctions with names such as "diarrhea with dried droppings," or chocolate; "bloody poop," or strawberry; and "green dysentery," or kiwi.

I'm not sure why, but Modern Toilet has not made the "must eat at" list while we are visiting Hong Kong. I don't think I have enough nutritional health supplements to even think about eating anything on their menu. However I am so intrigued that I just may have to take a quick peek inside.

I actually saw this on TV the other day...people eating out of toliets...I was at my momma's house so the sound was turned down...no thank you, but I have to admit, I would have to take a sneek peak as well!

The Buckeyes won on Sunday and MIGHT have a bid for March Madness..(something about 5th seed) It was a great game!

Oh my.

As I looked at the pic, before I read the post, I thought....
well, that's disgusting. That looks like a hive of poo.

Ewww.

And, the names of the dishes are even worse than the presentation.

Double ewww.
