Gordos, a popular restaurant in Holon, Israel, recently luanched its latest dessert – a real toilet bowl full of chocolate ice cream that pushes the boundaries of culinary creativity.
The dessert’s visual presentation has sparked a mix of reactions, ranging from curiosity to outright disgust.
And I don’t care how much you like chocolate ice cream, but the smeared toilet bowl and the way the treat is shaped like turds, it’s definitely not the most appetizing dessert you’ve ever seen.
The concept of ice cream served in a miniature toilet bowl has been done before, but Gordos is the first eatery to truly strive for realism, no matter how disgusting their creation might look.
It’s unclear whether Gordos was going hard for controversy, or if the brilliant minds that came up with the name “Third House Shit” were trying to be creative, but one thing is for sure – they made a lot of people angry, as they care less about the disgusting look of the dessert and more about its name.
In fact, Gordos’ daring creation has not only ignited discussions about culinary aesthetics but has also touched the sensitive religious territory.
In case you’re not familiar with the Jewish religion, the Third House (or Third Temple) is a very important and venerated concept that refers to a hypothetical rebuilt temple in Jerusalem.
To make a mockery of it for attention didn’t sit well with a lot of people, and many of them voiced their disapproval in the comments.
“Shocking. Such a lack of respect for the religious side that makes up more than 50 percent of the country’s population,” one person wrote.
“You are probably on the verge of bankruptcy if you decided to shock everyone with such a perverse idea,” someone else commented.
Either way, whether “Third House of Shit” is celebrated as a daring culinary statement or criticized as an insensitive gesture remains a topic of colorful discussion, inviting reflections on the role of creativity in a multicultural society.
