BDARI showcases its ‘Art on Tiffin Carrier’ exhibition as one of the world’s first collaboration between a lunchbox specialist and a select group of talented local artists at 1 Utama till this weekend 21st August. The one-of-a-kind platform display aims to elevate the typical tiffin carrier to a work-of-art as well as educating the general public on the detrimental effects of pollution – hence promoting an eco-friendlier lifestyle.

bdariAccording to a WWF Malaysia report, Malaysians had, on average, produced approximately 22kg per capita plastic
packaging waste per year. Of the 380 million metric tons of plastic produced globally each year, around half is
designed to only be used once, and then discarded.

“Malaysia has the highest annual per capita plastic use per person compared to China, Indonesia, the Philippines,
Thailand and Vietnam.” said Mr. David Low, Co-founder and Managing Director of BDARI. “The popular ‘Tapau’
culture of our country is the major contributor of plastic waste problems. For example, a Laksa noodle with soup
takes up to 5 different single-use plastic bags, one for the noodles, one for the soup, plus wooden chopsticks
packed in plastic, and a separate small bag of chili, then a larger bag to hold them all”, he added on.
BDARI carries out a mission to promote “Bring Your Own Container (BYOC)” and packed lunch lifestyles. Its
designer tiffin carriers are an alternative solution to single-use plastics. The classic tiffin carrier is typically a multitiered bowl held together with a wooden bracket. Nowadays, this has evolved to stainless steel containers with
colourful stickers decorating them. BDARI has collaborated with local artists to further elevate this concept. The
artists were able to create inspired works-of-art from a generic tiffin carrier. The artists were given full liberty to
express their artistic nuances through their work. From 3D printed alterations, to wool encasing, to beautifully
painted carriers, the artists have certainly proven that these tiffin carriers are more than just lunchboxes, but
actually statement pieces – “Saving the environment doesn’t have to be boring”. The showcase, which is currently
being held at the ground floor centre court of the 1 Utama Shopping Centre, is in itself a minimalistic platform
display. The tiffin carriers are presented on white pedestal columns with a large ocean themed backdrop.
Emphasising the concept of beauty within the norm, BDARI hopes that this gesture of incorporating art within
something as ordinary as a metal food container will draw more attention to its efforts in instilling awareness of
how single-use plastic usage can be reduced by adopting a BYOC culture.

On top of creating the awareness, the art pieces on display are also up for sale. Proceeds from the sale would then
be equally distributed between the artists and the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS). The MNS promotes the
conservation of Malaysia’s natural heritage which closely aligns with BDARI’s overall aim of creating a better
tomorrow for future generations.bdari artist road show

Among the drinks which is available, Tomyum Mojito drink is the most eye catching as the flavour is quite interesting, that top with a slice of chilli on the top.

Grilled Pork Neck is one of a recommended dish that served with steamed glutinous rice @ RM23.80. Something simple and direct..

Tiffin (9)

Papaya Salad

Tiffin (10)

Next is Fire Balls @ RM17.80. The name itself do lift up the expectation as, deep fried minced pork that mixed with ground roasted rice, dried chili, vegetables and some spices to make it aromatic.

Tiffin’s Pink Ocean Noodles serve with glass noodles is rather interesting. @ RM 23.80 Unique taste of soup and seafood combination do have sweet end taste , then their portion is quite generous as it serve with 3 sides for a set along with 4 condiments.

For classic thai, I think this is not bad as Beef Ball Noodles serve along with side dishes in the tiffin carrier @ RM25.80 which do allow me to connect the taste back to Bangkok. Serve in pippin hot soup, simple and light in taste.

As like those classic eatery in the country then add those 4 condiments at your own preference.

For others which is the ala cart version, you get to choose 3 dishes from the list to make it complete stack of Tiffin Carrier.  I did not take the sides as I took the mains only with Daddy’s Stewed Pork top in the list @ RM25.80, and Green Curry Chicken which is totally a bomb. Love the spiciness level and slightly creamy taste of it. (highly recommended) 

Tiffin (21)

Classic dish would be the Tom Yum soup that is serve in clear soup base which is available with either chicken or seafood. Ended up choosing seafood version as the ingredients are pretty generous.

The trick here is you get to choose which level of spiciness you are able to go numb. We chose the medium which is just enough for us and it would be better if another level up. 😀

Tiffin (22)

For desserts, there are a few things for you to go after which is their home made ice cream  @ RM6.80/scoop. Thai Cendul and Thai Warm Sago.

I ended mine with their Thai Ice coffee which is pretty good to my liking.

Tiffin (25)

If you are looking for some thai sauces, they do sell a few of them. Worth checking out.  I would say Their clear soup tomyum, thai green curry and Tiffin Pink Ocean noodle is worth to give it a go.
