Gallery: Inside Beijing's toilet restaurant
A CNN iReporter describes a potty-filled journey to a diner that has you eating out of tiny urinals while sitting on a toilet
Ever thought, "What I wouldn't give to be able to eat poop-themed dishes while sitting on a toilet seat?"
You're in luck.
At Beijing's House of Poo -- yes, that's really its name -- all 50 seats are made from actual toilet bowls, topped with cartoon-themed warmers. Winnie the Pooh included, naturally.
Dishes include “poo funny mud” (mashed potato) and beef curries served in tabletop toilets and mini-urinals.
"The food wasn't really that good," says Alain. "Or maybe it was good, but the environment I was in might have contributed to my judgment of the food's taste."
Although this sounds like a textbook case of "only in Beijing," there are actually similar toilet-themed concepts at restaurants in Taiwan and Seoul.
"I would recommend this to fellow adventurous tourists with a fun attitude," says Alain. "The experience might gross you out at first, but when you're with the right people, it will be a memorable experience."

House of Poo, 91 Dianmen Outer Street, Xicheng District; +86 (10) 8403 5296; open daily, 9 a.m.-10 p.m.
