LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles restaurant named the Toilet Bowl Cafe serves traditional Taiwanese cuisine in toilet-shaped bowls while diners sit on toilet seats.

The cafe, owned by Chinese-born restaurateur YoYo Li, is based on popular restroom-themed restaurants in China and Taiwan and features entrees with toilet-related themes such as "Smells Like Poop," which is comprised of braised pork over rice, ABC News reported Wednesday.

Other dishes include "Constipation," wheat noodles topped with pork and stir-fried with the fermented soybean paste zhajiang; "Black Poop," a chocolate sundae; and "Bloody Number Two," a vanilla-strawberry sundae.

Tony Wei, a Los Angeles resident of Taiwanese decent, said he expects the restaurant to be popular with the Asian community.

"[Asians] just can't resist these gimmicky fads involving food," he said. "I, being Taiwanese, also can't resist said gimmicky fads. And I would definitely eat at this restaurant as I can't resist my people's food."
