Dessert Diary, Jetsetter's Food Finds

T-bowl, Kuala Lumpur

As we speak, the restaurant industry is getting more and more exciting.  Someone out there is about to sign the lease for a restaurant space perhaps on the ship that takes you to the moon.  Probably someone is baking the most humongous and decadent chocolate cake you have ever imagined, 30 layers perhaps?!  Serve you a “30 layer” slice that the mere sight of this architectural wonder would put you into a food coma immediately.  Fun… Unique… Impossible?? Maybe.  But maybe somebody did all these already.  All I’m saying is, the industry is a tough and very creative and that their goal is to get your attention.

And so imagine, having your soup, salad, main course and dessert while sitting on your potty. Weird? Extremely. The mere thought of it, makes my tummy feel funny… But I kind of liked it.  The concept is unique.  I would definitely try this.

So lo and behold, T-bowl was built.  This extraordinary in concept restaurant combines the comfort of your home bath and toilet and well, food & beverage.

Yes I was sitting on a potty’s toilet bowl cover with dolphins on it.  Bob and I preferred this than the ‘squat’.  Our table by the way is glass on top of a sink.  Inside was a rubber duckie, whole garlic head and chillies.

The menu was well “weirdly cute”. There was a toothbrush attached.  Are they hinting that we brush after our meal?

The design of the the place is so quirky!  No wonder a lot of teens and pre-teens come here.  I swear, there was a moment where Bob and I were the only adults.

Hands down to the interiors.  There was a peeping Tom by the way on the other table while Jane Doe happily enjoying her bath beside us.  It made me giggle.

 Anyway, the toilet concept was boldly incorporated to our food.  It was served in plates and bowls that look like bathtub, sink and potty.  The dishes tasted ‘okay’ but because of the presentation, it seemed so special.  My tummy churned as the food was served.  The sight was quite surprising but I still tried my best to join the fun.  The best tasting and the most eye-catching out of what we ordered are the Oreo Milkshake and the Chocolate Ice Cream with Chocolate Swirl.

Oreo Milkshake, isn’t it adorable?

I don’t want to make my imagination run wilder.  This restaurant might be absurd for some.  I appreciate the humor.

Although the Chocolate “Turd” in a toilet bowl seemed so disgusting to eat, it was the yummiest chocolate soft ice cream that I ever tasted. Honest!

T-bowl aims to make your dining experience an unforgettable one.  It shows a person to take things lightly here and just go and have fun with it.

Remember, eating must be fun and a great meal always ends on a high note!
