UGH! Cafe serves soupy meat­balls from a TOI­LET

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

A toi­let-themed cafe where cus­tomers dine on meat­balls float­ing in soup-filled la­trines may not be ev­ery­one’s idea of haute cui­sine, but In­done­sians are flock­ing to try it out. Guests at the ‘Jam­ban Cafe’ sit on up­right toi­lets around a ta­ble where food is served in squat toi­lets. The restau­rant in Semarang on Java is­land serves tra­di­tional In­done­sian ‘bakso’ - meat­balls - bob­bing in a murky soup. Other loos con­tain a brightly-coloured, al­co­hol-free cock­tail for wash­ing the meat­balls down. For those who find the whole ex­pe­ri­ence too nau­se­at­ing, there is a sick bag hang­ing by the en­trance. Other places, such as Tai­wan and Rus­sia, are home to sim­i­lar themed restau­rants, but In­done­sia’s mod­est ver­sion has a key dif­fer­ence - it aims to ed­u­cate peo­ple about san­i­ta­tion and en­cour­age the in­creased use of toi­lets.
