Step right up into a whimsy-cal world of multi-sensory fine dining where diners are taken on a journey that “defies reality”.
Organised by TwoSpicy Entertainment (the people behind Dinner In The Sky and Plane In The City), Whimsy is a 5-course dining experience that combines an immersive “intersection of art, gastronomy, and cutting-edge technology”. In other words, your 5 sense will be ignited.
In case you’ve never heard of Whimsy before, here are several fun facts:
1. What is Whimsy?
Whimsy uses the state-of-the-art 360-degree digital projection technology to “transport” guests into various worlds and dimensions. As aforementioned, this interactive experience will treat your senses – touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste – like no other. During each course, diners will get to travel through space, underwater, the jungle, and a carnival.
2. The menu
The pork free menu is a 5-course meal that costs RM299/pax (Golden Journey) and RM499/pax (Platinum Journey). The menu for both differs slightly when it comes to ingredients. The Golden Journey menu comes with:
- Biodome – Smoked Duck and Lentil Salad, Squid Ink Risotto Moon Rock, Pesto and Roselle Geodesic Bubbles.
- The Nest – 63 Egg, Asparagus, Parmesan Cheese, Mushroom Duxelles and Chicken Jus
- The Sea – Roast Scallop, Japanese Turnip, Samphire, and Red Ogo Seaweed.
- Popcorn & Chocolate – Pan Seared Foie Gras with Chocolate Perfumed Jus, and Free Range Chicken with Popcorn Sauce.
- The Egg – White Chocolate Egg, Praline and Dark Chocolate Fuilletine, Vanilla Creme Pate, Fresh Fruits.
P/s: Our personal favourite were the Roast Scallop (the generous portion was just nice) and Pan Seared Foie Gras (it literally melts in your mouth in the best way).
