In this dining in the dark experience, you will enjoy a 3-course meal immersed in a pitch black environment. Without your sense of sight, you will heighten all other senses to taste, smell and feel your food like you’ve never experienced before!
Your dinner in the dark experience will last for 3 hours, you will be slowly led into your pitch black dining room to enjoy your dinner. The dinner in the dark experience will begin with an ice-breaking game to help you get to know your fellow diners and your host. Whilst you may feel disoriented in the dark, your visually impaired host will help you relax into the environment where they feel right at home.
Your three courses will be served in complete darkness and the menu will be a surprise. As each course is served, have fun tasting and guessing each item. Without any visual cues of facial expression or body language, you will rely on verbal communication to describe your food.
In your post-meal debrief, your menu and sample dishes will be revealed to you. You’ll be surprised by what you guessed right and wrong on your dinner in the dark! There will also be a chance to mingle with your host who will be more than happy to satisfy your curiosity about leading a visually impaired life.
Before the end of the experience, you will also get a Braille workshop and learn how to “write” using Braille.
This unique dining in the dark experience, besides being delicious and fun, will certainly ‘open your eyes’ to a whole new world.
