And now for something completely different, and gone over the edge in my opinion. But if you do find yourself planning a trip to any of these places, you may as well drop in – or avoid them like the plague. I would definitely opt for the former, just out of sheer curiosity. Bring your cameras.
Isdaan, Tarlac, Philippines
This is not your typical fish restaurant. Three hours north of Manila in the town of Gerona, Tarlac, Isdaan’s owners must have smoked one two many hookahs when conceptualizing this place.
Its tables are floating inside huts in a fishpond, there are giant statues of dinosaurs, fish and well, giants jutting out of the water, there are two very sad goats offering rides to little kids (call the ASPCA!!), theres a challenge where diners may cross the “San Kilo” bridge of the fish pen carrying a bucket of water (winners get a kilo of free fish!), and best of all, a wall called the “Tacsiyapo” where you can purchase a things from a cup to a television, and hurl it at the wall in a rage (swearing compulsary) at a small cost.
Modern Toilet, Taipei, Taiwan
I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to think about while tucking into dinner is going to the loo, but the owner of Taipei’s Modern Toilet restaurant chain seem to think otherwise. With unbecoming taglines like “To eat or to pee” and “Deliver your shit”, they seem to have taken toilet humour to a whole new level. At these restaurants, the chairs are replaced by toilet seats, the table counters are glass covered tubs, and food is served in western-style toilets or Asian-style squat pots. How you can eat your soft serve chocolate ice cream in one of those things is beyond me.
