Located in Taipei and owned by Eric Wang, the idea behind this strange restaurants was born when one of the owners was reading while sitting on a toilet.

Can you beat that!

Initially, they were just into the sales of chocolate ice cream sold in toilet shaped containers but as the idea caught on and became a success, it was turned into a full-fledged toilet-themed restaurant. The meals are served in non-functioning toilet-shaped bowls dinnerware.

If you flinch at the idea of eating in a place that gives you the idea of a toilet, then this is not for you. The surprising thing about this restaurant is that it is highly affordable. With just $10 you get a sumptuous meal in a toilet-shaped bowl.

If this is not one of the strangest restaurants in the world, I wonder what is.

Ice Restaurant

If you have watched Disney’s cartoon, Frozen, then you might get an idea of what the Ice Restaurant might look like. While the owners don’t turn what they touch into ice, almost everything in the restaurant is ice-themed. Diners get to sit on ice benches and chairs, they get to eat at ice tables and eat out of ice plates, and they also get to drink from ice glasses served from a bar made of ice.

What have you got to say about that!

I have watched Frozen and I loved it…especially the Ice Castle scene. If you really want to get that Frozen world Disney experience, then the Ice Restaurant based in Dubai it is.

I have no doubt whatsoever that the lady by your side will love it!

Flashlights and mobile phones not available, and visitors can only smell and taste the food by eating in the dark. Just use your senses to relish the meal.
