Monday Mystery Is "Who Would Eat Here?"

We have covered many different mysteries here at the Hermit's, but nothing quite like this.

I'm thinking that I would be more likely to pass up the chance, if you know what I mean! I believe that I would rather eat in someplace that didn't look like a big toilet! I'm funny that way, I guess!

Modern Toilet


At Modern Toilet, a restaurant in Taiwan, every customer sits on a stylish acrylic toilet (lid down) designed with images of roses, seashells or Renaissance paintings. Everyone dines at a glass table with a sink underneath. The servers bring your meal atop a mini toilet bowl (quite convenient, as it brings the food closer to your mouth), you sip drinks from your own plastic urinal (a souvenir), and soft-swirl ice cream arrives for dessert atop a dish shaped like a squat toilet. According to the manager, “it’s supposed to shock and confuse the senses”.

I think the manager's effort to shock and confuse the senses was very successful, at least as far as I'm concerned!

I think we should have coffee in the kitchen this morning. I'll break out some cinnamon buns, OK?

Yuck! Wonder what is the reasoning behind such an asinine idea?

I guess if the food didn't agree with you, you'd have a convenient place to barf.

Think I will by-pass THAT place -
wonder if they give you a roll of toilet paper to use in place of napkins.....
Need two cups of coffee this morning!

Sixbears said...

I'd feel silly complaining about the food. What did you expect, right?

Maybe an omlett with local eggs and goat cheese this morning, along with fresh coffee.

Momlady said...

All I can say is.....not only no but hell no.
Cinnamon buns? yum!

That does not sound like any place I want to go and eat. It's bad enough to have to clean my own toilets. But to eat out of one makes me want to puke. No thank you. On a brighter note, coffee and cinnamon buns sound good.

Bubba - I'll agree with 2 of your other followers this am - Sissy for the YUCK!, and I'll have one of 6 Bears' omelettes, please! Yum!

Maybe a cinnamon bun to finish off? Good conversation yesterday - we'll follow up more.......

Big hug -

He will close once Larry the Cable guy shows up there.

Oh I don't know it is an oddity and might be fun to visit at least once. It would be an adventure.

Coffee in your kitchen will be nice with those warm buns. Raining here.

Hey Sissy...
I reckon that they wanted to do something different...and I'd say they succeeded!

Thanks for the visit this morning!


Hey Gorges...
Good point! I guess that does make a difference.

Thanks for coming by today!


Hey Phyllis...
Ya know, that's not a bad idea! Next time I go, I'll mention it to the manager.

I appreciate you coming over this morning!


Hey Sixbears...
I think I like your idea much better! Easier on the eye, I'm thinking!

Thanks so much for coming by today!


Hey Momlady...
I'm thinking that I have to pass as well!

Like Sixbears said, at least your expectations won't be too high!

Thanks for dropping by today!


Hey Linda...
Sure are some strange places in this old world! Man made, at least!

Sweets are on the patio and I'm glad you came by to join us this morning!


Hey Sis...
That breakfast at Sixbears does sound pretty good, doesn't it?

Always a pleasure to visit, even if on the phone!

Thanks, Sis, for coming over today!


Hey SunnyBrook...
Reckon that's what he is waiting for?

I'm surprised that we don't have a restaurant like that here in the states!

I appreciate you coming over today!


Hey JoJo...
You and the girls could make an adventure out of it, I think!

What a day trip that would be!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming by this morning!
