A new restaurant in the southern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung seats diners not at tables and chairs but rather toilets. Meals at The Martun ("toilet" in Chinese) are presented in toilet bowls of both Western and Asian styles. (Link to Mark's previous post with a close-up photo of the dishware.) From Reuters:
Manager Hung Lin-wen said the original inspiration came from a toilet-shaped spaceship in a Japanese cartoon. The theme has attracted droves of novelty-seeking young people who come to play with their food and gross out their friends...
But no matter how delicious, a few customers still find the combination a little hard to swallow.
"The taste is good, but I still feel disgusted when I look at it," said diner Lin Yu-may.
