But have they munched on stinky tofu while seated atop a toilet?

Now local gourmands — or just those with a penchant for potties — can.

Magic Restroom Cafe had its “soft opening” in City of Industry in recent days.

Apparently the country’s first bathroom-themed restaurant, Magic Restroom Cafe features toilets for seats. Taiwanese food is served in tiny toilet bowl-shaped dishes.

“I’ve never had so much poop jokes/conversation during a meal til I came here,” one reviewer said on on the Yelp listing for the San Gabriel Valley eatery.

Owner YoYo Li told the Los Angeles Times she rejected opening a boba spot and instead went with the toilet theme after seeing its success in China and Taiwan.

A grand opening is scheduled for later this month, The Times reports.
