I first heard of this shop couple weeks ago from a colleague of mine, at first I was skeptical, but today I finally got the chance to check out the place myself (My Viva was in need of a car wash badly), and WOW, was I surprised!

MOMO dished steering as door handle!

The first thing that caught my attention is this ‘DRIFTING’ steering wheel from MOMO, which also served as the door handle for the main entrance to the restaurant, I was like “whhhhaaaaa!?” IMO the idea of using a steering as a door handle is very unique, and cool at the same time!  So I pushed the door open using the MOMO steering, and I see this…

Dining table in a Mini Cooper!!

Yes!  That is a dining table IN the Mini Cooper!  You can open up the doors and sit on those comfy chairs and dine in it if you wish, neat concept!

While I look around, I spotted more cool stuffs laying around the shop, such as these…

XBOX360 Setup

XBOX controllers on a table made from car's Rim

F1 model diecast for light source!

Free Internet and WiFi access

Wall decorated with wheel caps

There is a lot of nice ideas and concepts been utilized here in this restaurant, but the next thing I’m going to show you is my top favorite, I present to you…

Basin made out of a rear boot of a Honda Accord, Exhaust Tip and Bike Tire as Mirror!

I was literally giggling all the way while I was enjoying my drink, which is also named after a Nissan sports car, the ‘Silvia’, it’s actually Ribena plus 7-up, topped with some lemon.  Seriously, how cool is this shop!? LOL!

View from inside the Restaurant

I like this view, this shot was taken exactly on the table that I was enjoying my drink on, it’s a great view simply because you have a very clear view on how your car is being washed, very nice indeed!

And here’s a video that I took while I was in the shop:

I spent more than an hour at the shop, the car wash was kinda slow, but it doesn’t matter since I get to have a variety of entertainments in the restaurant, I get to drink, or eat if I want to, play XBOX, chess, read some books or go online. In short, I definitely recommend this place to any local car lovers out there!  If you in need of a car wash, do drop by the shop and give it a try!

I was definitely having a great time at the shop, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be visiting the place again very soon, to get my car washed, of course, haha!

I’ve heard about this shop before, was skeptical at first but finally decided to pay a visit this afternoon and wow, was I surprised! The shop owner decided to merge it’s car wash business with a restaurant themed with all things car’s related, and IMO he executed well! From the momo door handle to the exhaust basin, I was giggling from start all the way till I finished my drink, which was also named ‘Silvia’, LOL!
