Fancy Sitting on Toilet Bowl?

Some people told me there’s a cafe with similar concept (toilet cafe!) in Bukit Bintang area. But they didn’t tell me specifically where it is. If you know, kindly drop me a message yah. 🙂

We read about this place on one of the Hong Kong brochure we received. Initially, we didn’t really decided to go there but we were at Causeway Bay one day, hunting for factory outlet stores (wrong place to go for factory outlet stuff) and it was lunch time, so we hop in for a lunch break.

Isn’t this a gorgeous bathroom? :p

We were greeted by the friendly staff at the entrance and immediately we were being asked, “Would you like to sit on toilet bowl or sofa?” We replied, “Toilet bowl!” I admit that I’m easily attracted to new things such as this, but hey, I was on a holiday, so why not? Anyway, the place was decorated with all washroom-related things, such as toilet bowl covers with different countries’ flags, shower head, pipes (connected to form partitions), mirrors and washing basins.

Our “urinal bowl” drinks (medium sized) – Aloe vera with honey and honeydew milk (HKD10 each). The portion given was large (as if a large soft drink you get from McD or KFC), but it would be better if I request them to reduce the ice cubes.

Our main courses were served on a mini toilet bowl, which I think quite unnecessary, eventhough cute, as the bowls took more than half of our table space. The 3 Cups Chicken (HKD30) doesn’t taste like the original 3 Cups Chicken at all and served on a bed of bean sprouts. It was rather spicy with black pepper but my dining companion is fine with it. It comes with rice and a condiment made of crunchy “choy pou”.

My Japanese pork chop (HKD45) served on a bed of shredded raw cabbage and accompanied by a dark, thick sauce that tasted like barbeque sauce. The pork chop was juicy and I kinda like to have it together with the sauce.

For dessert, we had poo! We had no regret ordering this as it was absolutely yummy. The chocolate ice cream (HKD18) was thick, creamy and very chocolate-ty. Served on the toilet bowl which resembles Japanese toilet bowl, the dessert was meant to be shared as it was rather big in portion. Definitely my favourite poo of all time.

I Miss The Porridge in Hong Kong

*There were some errors on the post previously and they have been updated. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I have not experienced four seasons climate before but the recent trip to HK gave me the opportunity to experience “mild winter” (why mild and not just winter? ‘Cos there’s no snow!) With temperatures in between 10 – 16 degrees Celscius, it was fun and pleasant to walk around.

As we took the late flight at 4pm+, by the time we arrived at the hotel in Pak Kok (North Point, HK Island), it was near to 10pm. With such cooling weather, we ventured out nearby to see a char chan teng (coffeeshop) still open for business. We settled ourselves with wantan mee, beef noodles and vegetables. There’s no picture on these as the food were just mediocre. Although the wantan came in big pieces, the noodles were bland. The vegetables were heavily doused with oyster sauce and oil… which I suspect was lard. With our tummy filled with the disappointing “first taste of HK”, we walked further and saw Hui Lau Shan, a popular dessert chain similar like our KTZ (just that HLS has more branches). The desserts saved our night (that would be in another post).

The next morning, CK insisted he wants to have yau char kuey (fried dough) and Patrick suggested that we look for that in Wan Chai. We walked for about 25 minutes around the area near to the MTR before we passed by a coffeeshop selling that. By that time, our stomachs were growling in hungers.

We enjoyed the YCK very much, not because we were hungry, but because they tastes nothing similar to our local ones. Theirs were super crispy, not very chewy and not greasy. And it costs us HKD3.00 (equivalent to RM1.50) per piece.

And nothing beats having a steamy bowl of porridge for breakfast in the chilly weather. I personally doesn’t really like porridge but their Teng Chai porridge changed my mindset. It came laden with fish cakes, cuttlefish, peanuts, minced pork (the pinkish thing on the far right, sorta fried together with crushed rice vermicelli to give a crispy texture and unique taste) and scallions. The consistency of the porridge was just right, not too watery and not too mushy. The aunties who manned the shop were quite friendly too. CK and I loved the place so much, we went there again the next day on our own.
