Alchemy - Dinner in the dark

The “Dinner in the Dark” concept, a hit around the world, finally sees the light (no pun intended :-)) in Hong Kong. This unique experience is one not to be missed under any circumstances. Even if the idea scares you a bit, give it a shot, you'll see (well, not really) that it's worth it. Relax at the relaxing and informal bar area first with a delicious cocktail, and then decide what you will have for dinner: a starter / main / dessert for 500 HKD or a starter / main / dessert accompanied by three wines for 700 HKD. Then, and only after listening to the instructions, you can proceed downstairs and dive into the darkness. You are accompanied by a sight-impaired guide, who will serve as your waiter for the entire meal. Our experience was not a bit nerve racking to begin with, and we felt anxious for the first five minutes, but then we quickly got used to it. We were a table of 10, so it was a night filled with laughter and jokes, and by the end of it, we all looked a little disheveled. Some flavors that we were unable to identify were revealed to us in photos during the post-dinner debrief. Like us, you will be surprised and even taken aback that you aren't able to identify most dishes and wines.

Get together a good group of people, and go ahead and book an incredible culinary adventure.
