Taking a Dot Com Dump

Instead of doing a normal Dot Com Pho, Taipei edition, we decided to do something completely different and take a Taipei Dot Com Dump at the Modern Toilet. The Modern Toilet is an unusual concept to say the least. Instead of normal tables and chairs, guests dine on toilets. They sit on toilets as well. It brings up some very funny Jack Ass moments.

Joining Sarah and me on this Dot Com Dump were the rest of the Dot Com Crew, Stephen Fung, Ed Lau and Michael Kwan. We all took videos of the event. I’m sure they’ll be posting their footage soon. In the mean time, you can check out the first ever Dot Com Dump below.

        sorry guys, but and you guys got that shit cream? eww.. sorry if i submit this comment. i just can’t hold it

        1. I understand ur feelings Jack! :)

      2. lol Even though I’m your neighbor country, I didn’t know Indonesia was safe. Well maybe I was wrong.

  2. What a crappy post! :mrgreen:

    1. Heh, nice.

      As for the toilet themed restaurant, I’d have to say NO.

      1. That is one dot pho or dump that I am glad I missed!

      2. They should implement this in FEAR FACTOR 😆

    2. I’d second that…

  3. Shawn Knight says:

    That has to be the weirdest theme for a restaurant ever… but a dog would love it!

  4. Abdul says:

    That’s gross, seeing the toilet seat I feel like pukin in it!
    Totally gross, I wonder if anyone visits the restaurant!

    1. John Chow says:

      The place is always packed. We had to show up within 15 min of our reservation or we would lose the table, I mean toilets.

      1. Thiago Prado says:

        hey john tell me truth, when you saw the food inside the toiled did you feel sick?

        1. OCGolfCourse says:

          I bet he didn’t… It does feel weird though…

        2. John Chow says:

          Didn’t felt sick at all. We had a great time. The food was good!

      2. Flimjo says:

        “Hi, this is John Chow. I’d like to reserve a toilet for 4, non-smoking. Thanks.”

    2. Terry Tay says:

      It looks like someone blew some chunks in the toilet. At least you wouldn’t have to run far if you felt sick 😐
      Hey, didn’t we just have a blowing chunks post the other day?
      ~Terry :mrgreen:

  5. Damn, that’s just weird. But I guess it’s the strange things that sell these days, as everyone is frequently looking for something different. But I personally wouldn’t go to that restaurant, H*ll no!

    What the hell had happened with this blog?!

    1. John Chow says:

      It went down the toilet! 😈

      1. Terry Tay says:

        Hahaha…nice one 😆

      2. I actually laughed out loud.

  7. lol lol and lol :)
    That looks really funny, especially if you eat hot dog :)

  8. Stanium says:

    Indeed, that may look gross for someone (not me :) ), but the marketing idea is great! People would drop in just to see what’s like. After that it would not be hard to trick them into ordering something :)

  9. Wes Mahler says:

    When I come to visit Vancouver, I hope its not on a dot com Dump day.

  10. Germz says:

    Oh… My… God.:shock:
    Dude I would never even get near that even if it’s a 5 star restaurant lol it’d just be way too weird. 😯

  11. Ed Lau says:

    That was definitely the most delicious thing I’ve ever eaten out of a toilet.

    …wait, what did I just say?

  12. Ajin_10


    Oh no … no way im gonna eat from that stuff!!! *haha*

  13. Jorge says:

    In Oporto there’s a restaurant that does that too. 😀

  14. Thiago Prado says:

    I’ve seen many crazy here in USA and in Brazil however I’ve never seen something as crazy as this restaurant.
    I wouldn’t be able to eat if the food was served in a toilet. 😕

  15. Eeew! What a dirty post …john! :) i would prefer to remain hungary rather than eating in toilet!!

  16. Joy Smith says:

    Hey! I want that toilet!!!

    There was a lady here in Kansas who sat on a toilet for several years due to paranoia. She got stuck to the toilet lid because her skin grew to it. I’m not kidding. I blogged about it! It was in our local paper on on the news online.

  17. I simply couldn’t eat food from a toilet — even if it is a restaurant gimmick. Truly a case of “to each his own.” Uggghhhh!

  18. cheap laptop says:

    They should give you a plunger, with the meal, for memorabilia for visiting.

  19. and do you wipe your mouth with toilet paper?

    1. No! They use a Bedet.

  20. As a plumber I find that funny as heck……lol

  21. Yuck.. I won’t eat at that restaurant..

  22. Michelle_T says:

    Reminds me of the litterbox cake I saw at a party. It was made in a litter box pan and was complete with a scooper and chocolate poops on top. I absolutely could not eat it.

  23. Apoorv says:

    LOL, So funny plates 😎

  24. ROFL MAO…literally

  25. My wife would never eat at this place in a million years and I’m not sure I would.

  26. Marc says:

    That is just nasty…

  27. Awesome Video. Wish I was there so I can see the other food that they serve and on what they serve it in. Love the site by the way.

  28. Brian says:

    The two funniest things
    1. all the asian guys with the cameras at the beginning – reminds me of NYC 😈

    2. Eating from the steaming toliet. Classic! 😆

  29. There is one theme I don’t think we will see spread around the US.

  30. I gotta tell ya, these videos are becoming more and more interesting!

  31. G.Smith


    That restaurant is the shit! By the way, what do they have in the bathrooms? 😆

    1. Flimjo says:

      Probably plates, forks, and knives. Ouch!

  32. Noobpreneur says:


    LOL – That’s simply bizzare!

    I’ll think twice before eating in to the restaurant – I have to make sure I’ve properly going to the loo at home. Otherwise…

  33. Mike Huang says:

    I wonder after seeing this video will anyone open up a franchise in America or Canada :)


  34. exband says:

    ok no offence… but what is it with asians and toilets/toilet related things? Any time i see or read something strange or weird about toilets it is always from somewhere in asia! for example: http://wilhb81ez.blogspot.com/2007/07/witness-worlds-largest-public-washroom.html

  35. Binary Ant says:

    Funny dinner :mrgreen: What was in the toilet instead a w.c.? A bowl? A dish? 😉

  36. Talk Loud says:

    I like that “toilet bowl” like soup, its very funny that while you eat you think of something dirty. 😆

  37. Flimjo says:

    There is something disturbing about this. ❗

  38. John,

    Holy smokes…I am NOT going to reserve a table there. It’s just wrong man 😯

    Joseph Ratliff

  39. That’s weird. I feel like I would be sick because it’d be like eating in the bathroom. And then looking at the toilet seats imagining piss & crap…ugh.

  40. That is funny..

    Does it make you want to throw up looking at that little toilet with white and yellow crap in it..

    Doe people actually pay to go here and eat.. I bet the owners laugh all the way to the bank..

    Mike Greene

  41. I dont think I will be able to eat even a single morsel in a toilet seat.

  42. jonson roth


    Seriously? How disgusting. What makes you want to eat out of a toilet bowl? Guess there’s always someone who’ll come up with a stupid idea and someone else that’ll spend money to be part of it. And then a blogger who’ll take photos and blog about it. And an idiot like me who’ll waste time commenting on a concept that’s just wrong.

    The concept, in my opinion, is a bit avant-garde for the US, but I enjoyed the post. Entertaining.
