New experience of Beijing: Eating in a toilet?

A new restaurant in Beijing doesn't offer romantic candlelight dinners, but it is a big draw to young people with its toilet humor. The unconventional way of dining makes people happy and relax with fresh new experience. Let's take a closer look.

All 50 seats in the crowded diner are made from toilet bowls. Dishes are served in mini toilet bowls and drinks in plastic urinals.

Beijing's toilet restaurant opened 18 months ago. The names of its specialties on the menu often make it difficult for customers to guess just what exactly is in the dishes. One of the most popular is called "Our Famed Constipation", and is made from deep fried potato.

The restaurant caters to young people, especially university students. The average price of each dish is about 20 yuan, which keeps customers, shall we say, 'regular.'

The idea of combining toilets and food is nothing new. Toilet restaurants in Taiwan, New York, and other places have proven successful for years.
