How does invisible meal taste?

An unusual restaurant was opened in Berlin. Visitors of Unsicht-Bar (an invisible bar as translated from German) are offered to taste meals with their eyes closed. Owners of the restaurant say it is more important at that to concentrate on all senses except for the eyesight.

Special bands are put on the eyes of guests of the restaurant, who are served, do not be astonished, by blind waiters. Staff of the restaurant consists of 30 people, 22 of them are blind. There is no exact menu at the restaurant, guests are not offered some particular dishes. They are only asked about their gustatory passions: whether the guests would like to eat meat, fish or vegetables. The restaurant was opened by the Organization of blind and people with poor eyesight. Chairman of the Organization, Manfred Sharbah, says the organizers wanted people to use their senses of smell, touch and taste under rather unusual conditions. “People are surprised to find out that their gustatory receptors send the same signals to the brain that their eyes traditionally do,” Manfred Sharbah says.
