Food fads are all the rage these days — cronuts, food trucks, and cupcakes have all had their fifteen minutes of fame.
…But would you actually go to a poop-themed restaurant? That’s what Lien Nguyen is hoping!
Nguyen is opening a very unique café in Toronto where all the desserts will be fashioned into poop shapes.
“[It’s] considered very disgusting, [something] you can’t talk about when you’re eating,” she told The Toronto Star. “I’m trying to make poop cute.”
Toronto, we finally have our own poop themed restaurant, @poopcafe which opened today in Koreatown! With all those food trends catching on in the city, it was inevitable that this trend would eventually come dropping in to town (Sorry, I couldn't resist) Overall poop theme doesn't take over every element in the decor except toilet chairs, mini urinal cups, poop props and cute chalk drawings on the black walls but nothing particularly over the top. Featured here are Nutella and Oreo Bingsu's served in mini toilets, Red Bean Poop Waffle. Fun novelty and brings a wacky twist to desserts but don't expect to find any savoury food here as its all sweets, drinks and waffles. #mrdimsum #poopcafe #cafe #dessert #poo #toilet #downtowntoronto #koreantown #taiwanese #taiwanfood #blogto #gastropost #feedmyphone #foodiegram #foodielife #livetoeat #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #picoftheday #shit #emoji #torontorestaurants #cravethe6ix #foodietribe #koreatown
But wait…there’s more! If you choose to eat inside the restaurant, you’ll be sitting on fake toilets and eat from plates that resemble urinals.
“We checked out a toilet-themed restaurant and I just loved it. It’s funny to put food and poop together; it’s a great comparison,” Nguyen continued. “It stayed in my mind for a long time. As soon as I finished school, I said, ‘OK, I’m going to bring the restaurant to Toronto.’”
