Modern Toilet Restaurant

This wacky little place deserves a mention simply for its celebrity status on social media: the concept lends itself exceptionally well to Instagram posts. Here, diners are seated on actual toilet bowls, and all food is served in bathroom-themed tableware (poop emoji ice-cream in a "urinal," anyone?), with drinks that come in hand soap containers.


The regional cuisine is a mix of Chinese, Japanese, and aboriginal Hakka styles. It is also influenced by its island geography and the scarcity of arable land. Fish and poultry, therefore, play a major role in local cooking. However, the base of all dishes is made up of seasoning varieties particular to Asian cooking, such as soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil, supplemented with black beans, peanuts, chilli peppers, and a local variety of basil.
