Inside Japan's poo curry cafe – Ken Shimizu (pictured) has opened what could be the world's grossest restaurant. Curry Shop Shimizu specializes in dishes that mimic the texture and flavor of feces. In addition to running an eatery house, Shimizu, or more commonly known as Shimiken, is also one of Japan's best known porn stars.
'Joke restaurant' – The restaurant manager Hiroki Okada says that Curry Shop Shimizu is intended to appeal to people's sense of humor, rather than their palates. "Instead of eating curry, the purpose of coming to the restaurant is to have fun. The curry is just a trigger."
Urinal container – Strongly flavored ingredients are used to make the curry -- onion, carrot, minced chicken, bitter gourd, cocoa powder, bitter Japanese green gentian tea, curry powder and kusaya -- "A sun-dried salted horse mackerel that gives off the smell of dog dung," according to Okada.
Full experience – To create a coherent theme, the shop is also equipped with tea cups that resemble a urinal cup. Toilet rolls serve as table napkins.
VIP seat – In a survey before the shop's opening, 85% of respondents claimed that they would never set foot in such a place. But Okada said more than 300 customers visited the cafe during its first month.
