Pretty much like love, food comes in different shapes and sizes too. But, off late, penis-shaped waffles are trending. There's this food stall in Bangkok which sells penis-shaped waffles. The food-stall in Bangkok is ostensibly called "Pho Hai Ma" which translates to "I Got It From My Dad" in English.
This phallic creation is stuffed with sausage and cheese and is accompanied by a lot of sauces, such as ketchup, mayonnaise or chocolate. They cost about $1.20 (39 baht) for about 20 cents per inch. Yes, size always comes with a price, and you have to visit the market early enough to get your hands on them. A video of the dick-shaped pastries got more than 19 million views. Guess the experimentation worked big time.
So far, the business has been going good for Ketnita Prasertsomboon who is selling the sex-organ shaped delicacies at her Indy Market stall in Western Bangkok. But, unsurprisingly even, the penis pastries has garnered controversy. A renowned Thai chef, Yingsak Chonglertjetsadawong, is calling a boycott on the snack claiming that it violates morality.
He said, "Would you buy this for your parents? Would you put this in a monk’s alms bowl? If a girl aged 7 or 8 was eating it on the street, is that something you’d want to see?" But Ketnita is quite unsure of what's with all the disputes. She said, "Some people told me that I’m doing something obscene and un-Buddhist,” she told the website. “I just want people to view it as a snack."
But, Coconuts, a Thai website claims that penis waffles are not Ketnita's genuine idea and that the snack is quite a popular one in Taiwan. You can get phallic shaped eclairs and hot dogs in Taiwan's Shilin Night Market. In Turkey, Sirdan (Shirdan) is a penis shaped food that is made from the insides of a cow or sheep.
The fluid dripping food is stuffed with seasoned rice, meat, and onions. Though it might not look eatable, people who have had it say that it's incredibly delicious. The intestines need to be cleaned out thoroughly in hot water before being cooked. The stuffing goes in after the cleaning process.
Then it's stitched together so that the insides won't spill out. It's boiled before it is served to eat, and before eating you got to make sure that the string used to tie the food is removed. The delicacy is particularly popular in the City of Adana, and it's quite hard to find in other parts of Turkey.
Sirdan is sold as street food in Turkey and they are labeled as drunk food as they are usually consumed after a night of drinking. A popular cafe in Canada called the Poop Cafe Dessert Bar and sells food in the shape of poop. The drinks are served in toilet-shaped bowl mugs. The owner of the cafe, Lien Nguyen, said she wanted to make poop cute and make people change their minds about poo.
She got the idea for the restaurant when she visited a restaurant called "Modern Toilet" in Taiwan. A customer review on Poop Cafe's Facebook post read, "The day I went the bathroom was pretty smelly. Don't know if that was apart of the theme, but it was great. Spent a little more time just breathing in the atmosphere! I farted a few times to make it smell authentic."
