INK has the perfect atmosphere for a culinary adventure.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to eat in the dark? Well, you’re not alone, because plenty of people have been signing up to do just that with Fever’s Dining In The Dark experience.
Studies suggest that eating without your sense of sight really alters the experience and that it can help you to really engage with your senses of taste, smell and touch. We’re always eating with our eyes, and at Secret Amsterdam, we share with you some photos of the tastiest looking food from Amsterdam’s most amazing restaurants, but what’s really important is the taste, texture and sensation of the food, isn’t it?
That’s why Fever has booked the amazing INK Hotel as the venue for Dining In The Dark. Here you’re sure to eat some incredible meals, and you know they’re going to be incredible because you’ll be at the acclaimed INK. Plus, their food is stunning, anyway.
This incredibly elegant restaurant serves the most beautiful food, in the most beautiful building. In 1904 this stunning hotel was a pressroom in which newspaper ‘De Tijd’ was written and published, and you can see that history in the design of the building. Huge typewriter keys adorn the walls, impressive and iconic, whilst the rest of the interior is just as sleek and eye-catching. However, you won’t get to see the decor for very long, because almost immediately your senses will be plunged into darkness. Don’t worry though, because there will be somebody on hand to guide you to your table!
It’s up to you whether you go for vegetarian, seafood, or meat options. Either way, it’s going to be really flavourful because the idea is that you really taste the food. Sweet, salty and sour flavours combine on the plate but you won’t know what the component parts of the meal are so it’s fun to guess and feel like a pro.
Of course, we can’t tell you the full menu (shh, it’s a secret), but you can read a description of the flavours and book your tickets on the event description. So you’d better get practising tasting because you’re on your way to becoming a culinary detective.
