SHIT Restaurant in Beijing


The Chinese guy I was with simply translated the restaurant’s name as, “SHIT IN THE RESTAURANT.”

For brevity and clarity, let’s just call it as SHIT RESTAURANT. Or to be less gross TOILET RESTAURANT.  🙂 

And yes, I know. It’s not fabulous to talk about shit. 🙂

I’ve been meaning to go to this place ever since I heard about it last September. But, I went backpacking to Japan and South Korea, so the urge to go there was forgotten even until I came back.

Last week, someone mentioned it again so I pestered him that we should check it out to finally end my curiosity of the place.

And it never failed to amuse me. Or maybe, grossed me out. LOL…

So, let’s play Pictionary, shall we?

This is what greets you once you enter the tiny door. It’s not impressive and it’s overly decorated. The decors actually kinda, well, bathroom-y – even the tiles. But, then, that’s the point. You just entered the bathroom and not a restaurant. 🙂

You see, it is indeed a bathroom slash toilet. They even have a shower and a urinal (top left).

The toilet seats are, of course, the real ones that you are sitting in your bathroom. It’s weird the first time I sat there and it just didn’t feel right. Hehe…

 When I tried to open the toilet seat, the waitress shouted at me NOT TO OPEN it. For whatever the reasons were, who the hell knew? Good thing was, it didn’t smell. I think, this toilet seats could be very convenient when someone is grossed out – he could just throw up right there!

A bathroom dinner date would be, of course, not romantic but it certainly, is, an affair to remember. :))

The dishes they serve here are all western food. I got me a chicken curry (Is this western? Hello, London!) which is not bad. As you can see, there are no plates here. Your orders are served in ceramics, shaped in things you see in the bathroom. Even the menu is shaped like a Hershey shit. :)) 

Imagine you sit on this and your shit suddenly turns into a chicken curry, would you eat it? Hahahahaha….

Mushroom soup, anyone? Don’t worry, it’s not soap-y. It’s more of creamy…. Yummy… 🙂

Our dessert: English mashed potato. This is definitely some kind of shit, yeah? It tasted cold and a bit grainy to my palate.

And if you like the experience, you can leave your shit, too. I mean, a message of thanks or praise. They should have distributed a toilet paper to write down the messages.

And oh, the price is just like any other Chinese restaurant in your neighborhood. Dirt cheap.
