UGH! Cafe serves soupy meatballs from a TOILET
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.
