Pimp My Bowl


I notice that these days, meals in bowls are the in-thing. There's of course the new sensation, Poke Bowl and then there are many others that look so enticingly delicious.

But these bowls of deliciousness will set you back plenty. So. One weekend with nothing better to do (actually there was a pile of laundry waiting for me >.<) I decide to plate up a bowl or two or three just for the fun it.



Of course to do this sort of thing, you must have lots of food around. 



It so happened that I cooked for the week (including some cooked the week before and frozen) and had lots of material to work with.



It's nice to eat like this but DIY version means plenty of effort. It's more convenient then, obviously, to have someone else cook and serve this to you.


And then wash your bowl (and pots and pans) for you. You would gladly pay, wouldn't you?

  1. The first bowl, makes me think of briyani, hehe...

    Is that the long grain rice as used in briyani?

  2. Looks like you had a busy week cooking up the goodies up there! Actually I like my food to be served in ceramic bowls instead of plastic ones especially those served in hot soup. Makes the food more appetizing looking. :)

  3. I counted 4 bowls. Why 4 different bowls? Are they for one sitting or more? Looks very delicious! So many different dishes in one bowl so I know must be a lot of work. Bravo to you!

    2. But did you finish eating all four bowls as one meal or for both lunch and dinner?

  4. Hey, unknowingly, because of the lazy (wo)man in me, I end up plating my bowl like this too every time I cook at home. The reason is because, when I cook 3 - 4 dishes, I would spoon a bit of each in my bowl and sit in front of the TV. That way, I don't have to go back and forth to take my food....hehe! ;D Of all the bowls, my fav would be the one with beef curry, daging masak hitam, coleslaw, some kind of vegetable dish and some kind of fried rice...kekeke! :D

  8. You mean restaurants in KL serve set meals in bowls like these too? I cannot imagine that. To me, eating out of a big bowl like this is for lazy home cooking, you hold the bowl in your hand and eat while watching Netflix. I don't think I will appreciate seeing meals served to me like this in a restaurant. Except if it is noodles soup...

    1. Mostly in cafes lah I think. I find it quite appealing to have many things in a bowl.

    2. Rg but currently set meals are served in one plate with everything on it. So you mean OK to serve everything on a plate but not in one bowl?

  16. I too noticed food being served in bowls now which normally were served in plates. I like all the food in the bowls you have prepared. Oh my! That's a lot of effort and hard work to prepare all those food! I guess it is worth it because the food looks so yummy-licious! Makes me hungry!
