The Scrawl on the Wall

crab and pork soupy dumplings, pan-fried noodles, relieved

Joe's Shanghai Restaurant is my favorite place to poop at when I'm in Manhattan's Chinatown. It's so easy to masquerade as a customer waiting in line. Nobody cares or pays attention. The staff barely speaks any English, and especially if you're a foreigner, they leave you alone. It's more than simple to sneak to the back of the venue where their mens/womens toilets are located. The good news about these toilets is that nobody really checks for genders. This means that I frequently use the men's toilet, despite the fact that I'm a female. I'm sure the vice versa happens as well.

Joe's Shanghai Restaurant is famous for its signature dish: its crab and pork steamed soup dumplings. Seriously, these dumplings are so flavorful that I thought I was going to have a food attack!

Despite the food being delicious (albeit overpriced with tax + tip counted into the final bill, cash only), the toilet is literally a shithole that barely gets the job done. It reeks of urine staining the floor from the hundreds of patrons that use its services on a daily basis. I would advise bringing your own toilet paper here. If it's too disgusting, try opting for the opposite gender's toilet.

Despite the shitty conditions, I still give this toilet a 3-star rating due to its accessibility and no-questions-asked policy.
