Who remembers playing that game as kids where you are blindfolded and a friend feeds random foods for you to guess? Oh yes, it was all fun until someone put vinegar on a spoon. Well, we experienced the grown-up version of that game when we dined at Noir in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
Noir-dining in the dark restaurant has only been open since September 2014, but it is rapidly becoming a must-do on any Saigon itinerary. The concept is that diners eat in total darkness.
It's not simply dining but a uniquely mind-altering experience where smell, taste, touch, hearing unite to bring you a completely new journey of the senses
Think of modern society and images of shining cities and glowing screens come to mind. Every facet of daily life depends on sight. How would your other senses react to being in complete darkness? At Noir, Dining in the Dark, you will embark on a sensory journey into a different world and savor exquisite tastes and textures in complete darkness. This multi-sensory dining experience will stimulate your senses and open your mind.
The experience begins in our pitch black dining room where you will be guided and served by blind or sight impaired staff who have been specially trained to assist and reassure sighted guests who are in complete darkness. Transfer your trust to these skilled guides they lead you to experience a new way of sensing the environment around you. After a few moments of adjustment, the darkness will kill off any shyness or trepidation and bring about an open-minded atmosphere.
Their unique menus are a symphony of flavors and will stimulate your other senses as you are deprived of the dominating sense of sight. Textures and subtle flavours will come to the forefront as you dine your way through unique dishes that have not been described beforehand. You will discover the stunning truth about how people tend to experience food with their eyes, rather than their mouths.
At Noir, Dining in the Dark, it is more than just a meal. It is a sensory journey that will make you re-evaluate your perception of taste and smell. Be one of the first to try this one-of-a-kind dining experience for a unique date or group outing in Saigon.
