anyone been to this resto in taiwan? the food looks good, actually.

what is this obsession in taiwan foodie culture, anyone?

big question: will chow.com feature these cups? ;-)

    This topic was explored in the Bunuel film “Phantom of Liberty” in a segment where people sit as a group on toilet seats at a table reading magazines, but in order to eat dinner, sneak off shamefacedly, individually, down the hall to a small closed cabinet of a room.

    Aa for the Taiwan restaurant, what I found really revolting in the newsfilm was drinking out of bedpans.
