Dine in the Dark Experience @Misono

by - 17 November

Would you trust your servers, the kitchen and the restaurant itself when your sense of sight is completely inhibited?

Last November 15 I went to Misono (Jupiter Street, Makati) to experience dining in complete darkness and placing my trust to the servers/guide, not to mention the people who make the food.

Dinner in the Dark "Open your eyes for the Blind”  by Zoomanity Group was a definite treat. And an experience well worth having at least once in your life.

We were treated to a performance by the talented and absolutely charming people from Philippine National School for the Blind.

The struggle was real tbh. I didn't doubt that they were going to feed us anything less than delicious (it is Misono) and the textures and taste were familiar so I didn't have a hard time. The struggle was making sure I don't knock something over, spill some on myself or misplace the utensils.

To think this is only one part of a blind person's day. I realized this country isn't designed for accessibility for people like them. The roads, the side-walks, the signages, the sound cues, are just some of the things on top of my head.

Would you like to experience this too? Read on below!
