Marton

(07) 7522-471
36, LinChiuan St., LingYa, Kaohsiung City
Hours: 11-30 am-10 pm


Tucked away in an alley near Kaohsiung's Cultural Center is a novel version of the traditional ice cream parlor. Marton is a setting for the young and hip, especially the young and hip who like eccentric surroundings. Housed in bright neon lights, this establishment features seating made up of trendily-decorated toilet seats and tables composed of glass-top sinks. And the appropriate place for napkins and their holders? Rolls of toilet paper on TP holders on the backs of the toilet seats. As odd as it may seem, the place is cheerful and, of course, sanitary. And cheap--nothing on the menu is over NT$80, and for prices even lower than that, there is sufficient amount of ice cream presented to fill many mouths. Served in custom-made "soap dishes," there are many choices such as gigantic sundae-like combos (NT$50 to NT$80) and single-serving whirlwinds (NT$35). There are also special set meals, which are also no more than NT$80. Various beverages are available, priced NT$40 to NT$70.
