Not to be mistaken with the infamous place in Japan

I was browsing through various website the other day and I had come across this pretty interesting restaurant. And the most important point about this restaurant would be this amazing dish that is so so filling.... O.o...

'Thai Ice Tea'
Being a heavy tea lover, I will always start off a good meal at a
Thai restaurant with a good glass of 'Thai Ice Tea'. With a good
amount of sweetness, topped with the nice aroma and taste of the
tea leaves, makes this a pretty good drink to start your day.

Enough of the drink, it's time to move on to our 'Main', which
compromise of a plate of 'Jasmine Rice' and...

'Stir-fried Soft Shell Crab with Yellow Curry'
(Phunim Phad Pong Karee)
The sinful thick curry would be a big (+). You can easily wipe out
a bowl of white rice just by covering it with a sinful portion of
curry gravy. Not only the gravy tastes good, the Soft Shell Crab
that comes with it are pretty interesting too. Though you can easily
count the number of Soft Shell Crabs that were given using your 10
fingers but that isn't the most important point. The most important
point about this dish would be the fact that they are pretty crunchy,
juicy and the taste of the curry has blend in nicely.

'I-Thim Nara'
This comes with a scoop of Coconut Ice Cream and 8 other cups of
interesting toppings. There's the crunchy 'Peanuts', 'Sweet Corns',
sweet 'Nata De Coco', 'Attap Chee'(Palm Tree Seeds), 'Red Ruby'
(Water Chestnut coated in Colored Sago), 'Lot Chong'(Pandan Flavored
Rice Flour Droplets), 'Jackfruit' and 'Sticky Rice'. And iet the
D.I.Y Game begins...

Trust me, do not start with the 'Sticky Rice' first, else you will
regret it. The scoop of ice cream is simply far too small as
compared to the 8 different cups of toppings. As I wiped out 1/3
of the overall portion of toppings, the scoop of sweet coconut
ice cream was completely gone. But it was fun mixing the different
types of toppings of a different taste and texture and savor them
at one go. At the earlier stage you might be mixing those that
you favor the most, but as you move on, you will realize that you
need a strong incentive to balance things a bit. And that's where
the 'Sticky Rice' will step in. At the end of the day, despite of
my huge appetite, I only to managed to wipe out 70% of all the
toppings. And the nice waitresses over here was actually asking
if I want the leftovers. A bit too much for my stomach therefore...
Anyway if I happen to visit that restaurant again, I would probably
just place an order for this, which is the most filling dessert that
I have eaten up till now. :D

So where can you give the dessert a good try?
