It looks like we cannot get enough of KL’s hippest trend- to eat and stack the bowls and later snap and post on the internet to flood and clog up the social media feeds with the towers and towers of bowls we polished. This one called the Big Spoon in Puchong shares the same fate, except they do it a lot more creatively with the use of large spoon bowls to substitute conventional bowls. Because stacking ordinary bowls are too main stream, the Big Spoon actually lets you stack huge spoons instead.
Replacing conventional bowls with bowl designed alike a spoon, and adapting their menu and concept from the popular Thai boat noodles, one would not need to travel to Thai for some of this stacking experience. Unlike most Thai boat noodles restaurants in town, this one sells only cold noodle and they do it the Chinese style. Chicken Cold Noodle with springy and chewy noodle topped with shredded chicken, cucumber strips, spring onion, sesame seeds and some of their flavourful homemade sauce. It is optional but recommended to try some adding some peppercorn oil or red chilli oil to create variations accordingly to your palate since the menu only offers one noodle selection.
In case if you want some add on or if you merely want to put the menu on the novelty challenge, there is the dumpling with juicy minced meat and flavours packed inside these thick pockets of dumpling. In a nice contrast to the cold noodles, this one is cleverly served pipping hot. Along with their house sauce, and a sprinkle of spring onion, these dumplings also let you do the stacking once you’ve polished them off. Three dumplings in a bowl (or should I say a spoon to be exact) are served plain with no additional seasoning. So like the chicken noodle, feel free to add some of the chili oil for more variation in taste.
Also on the very compact menu is the Rice Wine Sweet Soup (RM 3.90) which is great for our weather in Malaysia if it is made into slush. Mild and gentle rice wine with tact of mellow sweetness puts a good closure to the meal.
Do note that there may be short of a dazzling list to pick from of the menu, but each spoon of noodle sells at RM 1.90 while the dumplings are yours at RM 3.90 each. Go ahead and order as many as you can finish but know that the tables are limited despite the cheerful interior.
The menu has expanded now so if anyone is interested to be a part of this trend can check them out. Otherwise, there is always something else within the proximity for comforting meals. Here is the menu at my time of visit (before the revamped menu).
