    Can I recommend the blind trout.

  2. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:09 am |

    Of course it’s happy – it’s an EXIT!

  3. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:10 am |

    Happy & crappy.

  4. Jonnytbone | 4:10 am |

    It’s more than a toilet; it’s a happy home for pot monsters.

  5. Big Fat Cat | 4:23 am |

    Their beer tastes like piss!

  6. mickeygreeneyes | 4:27 am |

    Listen, pal, I’ve been in a lot of delicious, happy toilets, so don’t think yours is such hot stuff just because it’s next to Tai Kang Road!

  7. Droll not Troll | 4:30 am |


  8. Droll not Troll | 4:32 am |

    Next time I see a happy dog I’ll know where it got its last drink.

  9. Droll not Troll | 4:35 am |

    This brings back memories of when Mum let me lick the bowl. 😛

  10. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:40 am |

    It’s such a fancy way to say ”I’m going to a restaurant in a toilet!”

  11. pijo | 4:44 am |

    A restaurant cum toilet?

  12. Silly Uncle Willy | 4:45 am |

    It’s more than a toilet! It’s a floor wax! Or a dessert topping!

  13. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:57 am |

    Let me guess – it’s a Suck Ho Bldg in disguise

  14. Frank Burns | 5:49 am |

    Looks like it will make your head swell up too.

  15. Pectolatra | 6:03 am |

    If you survive the miscellaneous bacteria and the pot monsters, you’re gonna have a delicious and happy dessert!

  16. Pectolatra | 6:05 am |

    Stop saying it’s crappy! It’s more than a toilet to me… we’re in love.

  17. Droll not Troll | 6:05 am |

    Looks like this is where you drop the kids off at the pool.

  18. DrLex | 6:36 am |

    These people must have confidence in the food they serve. Most other restaurants do not have a dedicated dining room, only a toilet that doubles as dining room. It saves customers the sprint when the food makes their bowels act up.

  19. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:39 am |

    Restroom or restaurant?

  20. DrLex | 6:49 am |

    The Chinese says something like “Toilet joyful subject restaurant”. Did someone really believe it was a good idea to use the word “toilet” in the name for a restaurant?

  21. faulty wiring | 6:51 am |

    I thought cottaging was meant to be low key…

  22. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:55 am |

    – Would you care for a dessert, Sir?
    – No thank you, I’m full. Could you tell me where the men’s restaurant is, please?

  23. Seventy2rd o clock | 7:02 am |

    – Waiter! There’s too much restroom pepper on my crap!

  24. jjhitt | 7:34 am |

    Best sh!t on the block.

  25. jjhitt | 7:36 am |

    Flush clockwise, Flush counterclockwise, Good Day Bidet and ever popular Peter Pan.

  26. KellogGold | 7:56 am |

    Where, apparently, the women have moons in orbit around their heads.

  27. Classic Steve | 8:12 am |

    You’ll leave with a s***-eating grin.

  28. Nonsuch Ned | 9:24 am |

    The waiter pissed on my leg and told me it was lemonade.

  29. jjhitt | 10:27 am |

    @ KellogGold: The moons about the head I can handle. It’s the Eye of Sauron over the toilet that bothers me.

  30. timo | 10:35 am |

    Better than “Less than toilet!”

  31. Peter Chan | 10:42 am |

    Is that more than To Let ?

  32. Seventy2rd o clock | 10:53 am |

    And by the way, the name of the owner’s daughter is probably ‘Loo’.

  33. Frank Burns | 11:36 am |

    Soon to open a franchise in Flushing, N.Y.

  34. Mc-Taz | 11:39 am |

    Welcome, right this way. Would you prefer a stall or a urinal?

  35. Kainaw | 11:41 am |

    For those who are interested… This is a restaurant (initially from Japan) where the seats, cups, and bowls are shaped like toilets. Why? Nothing whets an appetite like a shimmering toilet.

  36. Marum | 12:30 pm |

    Gentlemen. Will you be upstanding.

    Ladies. Please be seated.

  37. Marum | 12:30 pm |

    Ammenties block at Flushing Meadows.

  38. Jøsh | 1:01 pm |

    From the rooter to the tooter.

  39. Goofy | 2:33 pm |

    It got four stars in Frommer’s coprophage section.

  40. Goofy | 2:53 pm |

    Endorsed by 50,000 flies.

  41. Seventy2rd o clock | 3:13 pm |

    – What is more than toilet?
    – Toilette!

  42. RT | 3:24 pm |

    … and yes, our toilet also doubles as a hot pot cooker. just remember not to confuse the knob that controls the heat with the handle that flushes.

  43. David R | 3:47 pm |

    I’m not going to post a link as that might be considered spam, but Google “modern toilet restaurant” to find out what this sign is about. I knew something was fishy looking at the Chinese (便所欢乐主题餐厅 for you fellow students out there), and I soon found out why…

    … It’s been awhile since I’ve experienced culture shock, but i think I’m officially there again.

  44. faulty wiring | 4:16 pm |

    @ David R: I was going to say ‘thank you’ but since I am now wondering whether I have woken up in a parallel universe I am not sure that is what I mean. ‘Top new creative idea from toilet and sh*ts’

  45. iLock | 8:49 pm |

    ♫ More than a toilet to meee… ♫

  46. iLock | 9:02 pm |

    Riddle me this Scatman!
    It’s more than toilet
    but less than bathroom…
    What is it?

  47. iLock | 9:03 pm |

    I don’t want to live on Tal Kang Road…

  48. iLock | 9:04 pm |

    Oh by the way, it was The Piddler who was talking to Scatman.

  49. Droll not Troll | 12:34 am |

    @ David R: Thanks, the Wikipedia entry is most informative.
    The part about the Dr Slump ice cream……. 😯

  50. Marum | 1:26 am |

    Ya gotta watch the tables. They automatically flush every 5 minutes.

  51. Gtancx | 1:34 am |

    so why is it then, that the girl on the picture is crying.. sideways..

  52. iLock | 4:07 am |

    @Gtancx: They’re not tears, that’s piss!
    No, seriously I think they are Rayman-style ponytails.

  53. Pete | 7:56 am |

    A: I gotta go so bad my head is swelling up like a balloon, but I just hate those squatty potties!

    B: Dude, I know just the place for ya!

  54. Pete | 8:07 am |

    On a more serious note: OK, I checked out the website. At first, I thought it was a store for supplying modern toilet designs to restaurants, or a toilet supply store themed as a “restaurant”.

    As I kept reading, I realized it started out as an ice cream shop where they sold chocolate ice cream in containers designed to look like toilets as a theme. They mention how it was seen as amusing by the clientele as a gag.

    All I can say is, Taiwanese humor and American humor must be really really different. Eating chocolate ice cream…or any other food…out of a container that looks like a toilet…just turns my stomach.


  55. Sparky | 8:45 am |

    It glows at night too!

  56. Quinten | 10:52 pm |

    There’s one of these restaurants on Yi Zhong street (一中街) night market area in Taichung … I never went to eat there though…

  57. Mark | 5:24 am |

    ‘Womens head replaced by Sputnik’

  58. coffeebot | 5:28 am |

    I came for the toilet but stayed for the Lunch Special
