    That's one of those pasta bread bowls I've seen advertised recently. Basically it's the latest in-human creation by Dominos.

    I have absolutely no idea how somebody came up with the idea of stuffing bread full of pasta. Seems like a carbohydrate overload.

    EDIT: They're supposed to look all nummy and tasty as advertised: http://www.dominos.com/home/index.jsp

    I guess they neglected to consider that the delivery boy would fuck up their little soup bowl on the way.

    But they don't even look good in the advertisements. It still looks like a crusty bowl of vomit. What would possess a human to eat such a thing?

    People used to use them a lot. They were called 'trenchers'. That's why 'trencherman' means someone who likes to eat a lot.

    The problem with eating a pasta bowl from Domino's is mostly that you're eating a pasta bowl from fucking Domino's.

    Soup in a bread bowl is great. As is chili or stew.

    Pasta =/= soup.

    Soup in bread is awesome, they were made for each other. Bread(pasta) inside bread is kinda pointless then smothering it all in nasty dominos cheese(?) sauce is just disgusting.

    Well, a quick google search of worst food ever, #1 listed is....

    A form of egg...an incredibly odd form of egg anyway
    duckfetus1.jpg

    From:
    The Philippines

    What the hell is it?
    Behold, for our journey of horror reaches its destination. Balut are duck eggs that have been incubated until the fetus is all feathery and beaky, and then boiled alive. The bones give the eggs a uniquely crunchy texture.
    They are enjoyed in Cambodia, Philippines and the fifth and seventh levels of hell. They are typically sold by street vendors at night, out of buckets of warm sand. You can spot the vendors because of their glowing red eyes, and the faint, otherworldly sound of children screaming.

    Wait, it gets worse ...
    ... Because you're never going to look at an egg the same way. Tell yourself that every time you crack open an egg from now on you won't be half expecting a leathery wad of bird to come flopping out into the skillet.

    Yes, balut is upsetting on about a half-dozen levels. Sure, all meat eaters know on some level that the delicious chop on your plate used to belong to something cute and fluffy, which gambolled in the sun during the brief spring of its life. Most of the time, it' perfectly possible not to give a shit. But, when you're biting into something that hasn't even had a chance to see its mother' face ... well, it' different.

    Here is the article to review a total of six equally disgusting and morally disturbing foods you can try to consume

    I heard balut is actually not that bad, you just have to eat it whole. I would try it since I have already eaten the before and after, you may as well try the in between.
    Anyway, I think the dominos menu is far worse than anything on that list. At least everything on it is somewhat healthy.

    Healthy..perhaps. The egg is not so scary, but the lamb face would freak me out a bit.

    The balut disturbs me on a deep, subconscious level that I don't think I could ever overcome. The Domino's bowl disturbs me on every level my mind has.

    It should be noted, however, that most people clean and carve their ducks instead of devouring them whole.

    I would love to try the balut and the escamoles - the other items in that list I can live without though.

    For Balut though, I probably will have to eat it with my eyes closed.

    Does it count if the duck hasn't been born yet? I mean, it hasn't eaten anything so it's not like it's full of poo and pee. Just rich nutrients and proteins.

    They also wait until they're fully developed and hatched, as opposed to eating half-finished duck fetus, bones and all.

    Man, I know filipino dudes who've lived in the Philippines who won't touch balut, so I'm just going to wave my white boy pass and walk right past that eggy monstrosity. Balut is the kind of cuisine you come up when no one has any food left, kinda like fried fish eyes.

    Plus it also tries to make the cooking process look awesome. It's all "We got some shrimp, we got some onions and spinach and now we're gonna RAWGH THROW 'EM AT EACH OTHER and then here coMES THE SAUCE!!! KERSPASH!!!! Annnnnnd presto."

    I found this video review for the American pasta bowls. Unsurprisingly, they are salty and the best one isn't so much a pasta dish as it is a modified pizza topping.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIaovQr3dl0

    They have videos showing how the bowls are made on Youtube also. This is not a bowl. It's a tiny pizza that's sides puff up to give the illusion of a bowl. The pasta mixture is basically lobbed into the center of the dough before being put into the oven. Fast-forward to 1:00 in this movie to see how they're made. Be sure to stick around for the copious amount of garlic and butter power dusted onto the sides and the awesome rip it, tear it, dump on it demo from the reporter.
