If you’re visiting Langkawi and looking for something fun to do, you wouldn’t want to miss paying a visit to Upsidow, where you Turn Your World Upside Down! Upsidow is an Upside Down House Art Installation where everything inside is made from recycled, up-cycled and unwanted materials. Plenty of photo opportunities await inside Upsidow, which promises to be a fun activity for friends and family.

On our recent trip to Langkawi, we had the opportunity to visit Upsidow and spent a few hours in the double storey house. Spanning 3200 square feet, there were plenty of rooms/areas to check out and pose for photos!

The rooms and areas are what you would find at a regular house – living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, study, music room and even a garage with a convertible car! The fun factor is that everything is upside down. The house also has ‘Windows’ in the form of TV screens. In addition the floors are purposely built in a slightly tilted angle to further augment the upside down factor (which may result in slight dizziness but it went away after a while once we got used the the place)

The owners of Upsidow have built the place using recycled materials such as pallets, oil drums, discarded wood and unwanted pieces of furniture and decorative items. Therefore, it would be apt to call Upsidow an Upcycle Art Installation. 

Now let’s check out some of the rooms inside Upsidow~!

Pizza & Pasta Stall + Taco Stall

The setting at the dining area is casual and relaxed. Orders are to be placed at a the order counter (a bright yellow container which you cant miss). Drinks are available from the drinks vending machine (canned drinks + mineral water). After that sit back on the repurposed oil-drum chairs, enjoy the view/sunset and food will be served very soon!

We tried a variety of foods from all 3 stalls – burgers, pizzas, pastas and tacos.

Schnitze Burger (No Fries) RM15

Breaded Fried Chicken Breast in a bun with Cocktail Sauce

A good option for those who don’t take beef.

Curry Fries RM4

The Curry fries were my personal favourite! Fear not, the curry fries are not spicy, but instead have a delicate fragrance of spice that makes for unstoppable snacking. I honestly nearly finished the whole plate of fries on my own!

The Paprika fries were good too, but I just preferred the Curry version.

Garlic Bread RM5

Garlic bread was yum~! Not too strong on the garlic flavour, but bread was good and toasted just right.

Pizza Hawaii RM19

Next up were the pizzas, I enjoyed both but leaned towards the Margherita pizza. Sometimes, simple done well equals to great! Upsidow’s Margherita pizza just hits the spot.

Aglio e Olio RM12

We got to try 3 different types of  pastas – Aglio e Olio, Bolognese and Carbonara Chicken Ham. Out of the 3, the favourite of the night was the Aglio e Olio. The flavours were spot on with a hint of spiciness, combined with al dente pasta. A simple dish again, but done so well!

Mixed Sausages & Sauerkraut RM18

Beef, Chicken & Lamb Sausages

We also tried the mixed sausages platter which was pretty good. The platter comes with some slightly chargrilled bread on the side which was really good. And I always appreciate good home made bread! 🙂

Chicken Taco RM10

(Beef Taco also available RM10)

Next up, we had tacos (Chicken & Beef versions). The taco set comes served with Mexican style rice which has a lovely tomato flavour.

Burrito Chicken RM15

Chicken Quesadilla RM18

Meanwhile the chicken quesadilla makes for a delicious, easy to eat meal. I love the slightly toasted tortilla wraps encasing the ground chicken meat, tomatoes, veggies and cheese.

So if you’re in Langkawi and wondering what to do, be sure to check out Upsidow for a good time and good food! (Don’t forget the sunset view too!) 🙂
