Lil Miss Outgoing: Dans le noir review *

Hi guys! Hope you've had a wonderful weekend!

On Saturday, I went to an amazing restaurant called Dans Le Noir which is in Farringdon. It involves eating a meal in pitch black. You have no idea what you're eating and you only find out once you've finished the meal! 

It's more than just a restaurant - it's all about the experience! There are several menus you can opt for! I went for the vegetarian menu. We were led into the dark room by a blind waiter, who asked us to place our hands on the person in front. The waiter then took us directly to our table. The food tasted great and it was definitely a challenge to eat! Your senses become heightened in the dark, and I felt like I actually tasted the food. I now appreciate my eyesight more than ever. I did not even bother to pour the water into the glass because I was worried about spilling it all over the table! After we had eaten, we were shown photos of the food! The fun part was guessing what we were eating!

I don't think I'll ever forget this experience! I actually have a fear of the dark, but luckily for me, my friend was there to take care of me ;) I highly recommend this restaurant - it's a once in a lifetime experience! 

After the restaurant, I went to a cocktail bar called Golden Bee, which is in Shoreditch. I devoured on Haribo and Apple Crumble cocktails - so delicious! The atmosphere in the bar was amazing too! I love finding really cool restaurants and bars - there's so many in London that I have yet to experience!

Have you been to either of these places?
