TAIPEI – Many restaurants provide rice, sauces or drinks for self-service in Taiwan. However, a series of photos posted to Facebook, showing a boy skilled at filling a paper bowl with as much rice as possible, went viral online.
A social media user who posted the photos explained that he recently went to a hot pot restaurant where diners can enjoy “a bowl of rice for only NT$10 (S$0.50).”
However, he was surprised when he saw a boy’s “miraculous way of filling a bowl with rice,” exclaiming: “This is professionalism!”
In the photos, a boy was seen holding a bowl in his left hand and a spoon in his right one, while skilfully filling a bowl with rice, eventually turning it into a “hill-shaped rice bowl.”
The post received more than 14,000 likes with many saying that “this kid has a bright future,” while another wrote, he can go on the path leading to Sushi master.
“I’m sure the staff was dumbfounded when they saw what happened,” one commented.
