Dining in the Dark @ Changkat Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumput

For my wife’s 31st birthday,  I brought her to Dining in the Dark KL. In Dining in the Dark, you will get to dine in total darkness. You can’t even see your food or utensils!

Dining in the Dark KL is operated by Werner’s and it is located on top of Werner’s at Changkat Bukit Bintang (parking is terribly expensive but try Radius Hotel). The interesting bit is that the manager and waiters of Dining in the Dark KL are blind! Our waiter, Darius, guided us to our table in total darkness. We had to hold on to him.

Once we are seated, we were served with a three course meal which remained a secret after the whole session. A session last about 2 hours. You can eat with your hands or utensils. I hate eating with my bare hands hence I ate using my utensils all the time. It’s tough eating with your utensils in total darkness!

My eyes were quite uncomfortable throughout the session. I guess I’m not used to total darkness.

I must say that the food is not bad. I wasn’t expecting it to be tasty. Sorry, no pictures of the food as we were required to surrender our phones before going into the dark room!

But here’s the menu. You won’t know what you will be eating until the end of the session. If there was a cockroach on top of your food, you wouldn’t know too 😀

Also, the menu changes from time to time. You can tell them to cut out certain stuff if you have allergies or certain preferences. You are also required to come on designated time. They don’t want people walking in and out throughout the session.

Lastly, one of the best parts of this experience is to be able to speak with people who have vision disability. They are just like us. I am told that Werner’s had made efforts to hire blind people to work with them to give them a better life. Kudos to them.

Twentyone @ Changkat Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur

I didn’t have the chance to review this place when I visited Twentyone, a restaurant cum club located in Changkat Bukit Bintang. last year. However, in conjunction with Sharon Dilirius’ birthday, we celebrated her birthday at Twentyone.
The ground floor serves as a restaurant while the 2nd floor serves as a club, with a small dance floor which plays house music and some retro hits. The patrons range ranging from your local yuppies to foreign expats. According to Sharon, “It’s a place to see and to be seen”.

At the 2nd floor lounge
We ordered 2 bottles of Black Label to be shared among the girls. The girls on other hand ordered mocktails which I must admit was quite nice. The price is quite reasonable too. I had one delicious Strawberry Delissh. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately, the place was extremely packed which resulted in slow service. Some drinks that we ordered didn’t arrive.
Nevertheless, I would recommend this place to those who wishes to have a good night out. The place is usually pack hence please make reservations.
