Tired of the same old shit when you go out to eat? Looking for a new Johnny when you need something to hit the spot? If you’re feeling the urge to stimulate the bowels of your soul with a dining atmosphere that stretches beyond the same old Crapplebee’s or Chili’s decor, look no further than LA’s Magic Restroom Cafe, which recently had its soft opening. I’m assuming that involved double quilted Northern.
Based on the original eatery in Taiwan, the decor consists of shower head wall hangings, tile, sinks with glass table tops and toilet seats. The restaurant is poop themed, which means that the food sometimes looks like excrement and comes served in bowls resembling toilets and urinals. Yum Yum. Talk about moo goo for your bed pan.
Here’s the soup, poop.
Enough to make you flip your lid.
The Fine China
So, what’s on the menu? Food with poop names of course. There’s the “Black Poop” chocolate sundae, “Smells Like Poop” pork over rice, the “Bloody Stool” some type of dessert and “Constipation” zha jiang main. No, I have no idea what that means. The Taiwanese fare is receiving negative reviews. Surprisingly, the food is getting a worse rap than the atmosphere. It’s hard to tell whether the atmosphere contributes to the culinary critique, but one diner admitted to loving the decor but found that the food left little to be desired.
It’s anybody’s guess why the great minds behind this concept are looking to gross their customers out, but the novelty packs ‘em in, meaning there isn’t a stool available in the joint. I use those terms loosely. So, best to call ahead to book your potty of five.
I don’t know about you, but I’d be up for anything in loo of this place.
Quit stalling…let me know what you think? Give me the poop scoop in comments.
