A new café in Toronto wants to change the way people think about poop.
Her idea to open the poop-themed restaurant came when she visited a restaurant called “Modern Toilet” in Taiwan.
“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,” she told the Star. “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.’”
Nguyen told the Star that, through her new café, she hopes “people will change their minds about poo.”
“[It’s] considered very disgusting, [something] you can’t talk about when you’re eating,” she said … until now.”
According to the Star, Nguyen plans on making all of the items available at her café brown, formed like a stool, and served in toilet-shaped dishes.
As unique as it might sounds, Nguyen’s Poop Café and Modern Toilet, which as been around since 2004, are not the first of their kind.
