In the Instagram generation where we all eat with our eyes (and smartphones) before we actually eat the delicious food laid out in front of us, here’s a fun dining experience that’s set to turn things on its head. The delicious Dining in the Dark experience is returning to Bluewaters Dubai starting May 11, after it’s successful run in January earlier this year.
Hosted by the trendy Arabic-Armenian restaurant VAGA at Bluewaters, you’ll be treated to a secret three-course menu while blindfolded. Yes, the lights will all be out during this adventurous 90-minute experience. But as an added measure, diners will also have their eyes covered with a blindfold so there’ll be no peeking.
Losing sight, research shows, will help you see (metaphorically, of course) the defining factor of a fantastic meal – the flavour. You’ll have to rely on your senses of touch, taste and smell to guess what’s served, and the absence of distractions like your phone being used to snap pictures of the food will truly let you relish each and every mouthful.
It’ll be a fun game of guessing what the mystery spices, cooking methods and ingredients that have made it to your plate are. But don’t worry, dietary requirements and allergies will be catered to. Vegan diners have the option of choosing a green menu, seafood lovers can opt for the blue menu and red meat eaters have the choice of a red menu. Each menu will serve you a filling starter, scrumptious main course and divine dessert.
If one of your summer 2023 checklists was to be more adventurous and open to new experiences, Dining in the Dark is absolutely an event you must try. It’s also a fun date night idea or a fresh twist on dinners with your friends. Whoever you attend this experience with, it’s going to be an evening full of surprises delectable surprises, so don’t miss out!
