Diatribe: Magic Restroom Café.
I’ve been to some truly unusual “themed restaurants”. Usually in tourist towns, these restaurants can be lots of fun. Some, like Rainforest Care, tend to be colorful and interesting to children while others like The Heart Attack Grill cater to a more adventuresome clientele. Regardless of the situation or the location, the prices on the menu usually reflect the peculiar décor and/or cuisine offered by the restaurant.
The most peculiar theme restaurant in the U.S. may have officially opened this week in Los Angeles’ City of Industry. The Magic Restroom Café is America’s first toilet-themed eatery. All the dishes, seats and food items are focused on toilets, bathrooms and human bodily functions.
Customers hoping for a crappy dining experience sit on stools topped with toilet seats and order appetizing menu items like “Golden Poop Rice,” “Black Poop” (a chocolate sundae), “Smells-Like-Poop” (braised pork over rice), and “Bloody Number Two” (vanilla/strawberry sundae). Each of the disgusting dishes are served in miniature toilet bowls
Modeled after the popular Modern Toilet restaurant chain in China, the Magic Restroom Café officially opened on October 11th and, so far, the décor is said to be getting better reviews than the food. Most of the complaints are said to be based on slow service, possibly from a backed-up kitchen, and cold food. The official grand opening is set for later in the month so they still have time to get their sh*t together. <sorry>
There is absolutely no way that I would ever eat in this restaurant. I have trouble touching the doorknobs in some of the nicest restaurants around. I’m not a neat freak or a germaphobe but I do like to think that the establishments in which I dine are clean and sanitary … quite the opposite of even the most magic of restrooms.
Would you eat at this restaurant?
