Magic Restroom soft opens.

The money shot from the weekend is someone twittering a photo of a near-empty (toilet) bowl of eaten curry featuring a ring around the toilet.

Others on Instagram feature people (millenials) posing mid-pee in the lobby, barfing into their seats, taking a shower at their table, etc.

I hope the concept makes it across America.

NB: the original Modern Toilet restaurant opened in Kaoshiung in 2004:

  1. It makes sense to me. What they're saying is the food is what I call "in 'n' out"; it just goes right through you abd you're sitting right where you need to be.

    1. do they have TP dispensers in place of napkins? (labeled OSU/MSU diplomas, of course) then you could film impromptu chamin commercials with customers all saying "this feels like facial tissue"

          i feel badly for our kicker. but i don't think we got outplayed as much as out-coached, especially in the 1st half.

          and i just got back from R-J in downey. will post on that shortly.

          Oh, you eat out of the fucking toilet ????

          Now that's a fucking gimmick.

          i was hoping that you ate your six hour tasting menu meal while sitting on the toilet so you would be able to go whenever you damn well please.

          That would have been the true felicitous concept.

            I cant wrap my head around this concept whatsoever. I have seen it all now. They have reached the limit. OMG!

            (Kevin you kill me. I am laughing my head off right now.)

              3 times I read the title of the OP's post as "Magic Mushroom" and was starting to get interested until I refocused and was throne for a loop...(now I feel a bit flushed and need to sit down for a while).

                A recent email from a friend contained a link to an appropriate game for this particular thread

        2. I always wondered: do their bathrooms look like restaurant interiors? That would be a genius sub-concept.

            or, lack of any bathroom seems justifiable.
