NEvent: Flavour Tripping Party


Get ready to be tripped out

If we told you that we could make vinegar, lime juice, grapefruit and lemons taste sweet in your mouth, you’d probably think that we’re tripping. And in a way we are, for we’re holding a flavour tripping party – the first of its kind in Hong Kong.

NecesCity will be introducing you to the miracle berry, which will turn your taste buds upside down, and all things sour and bitter will taste sweet. On August 20th, come to Box Thai, a modern Thai restaurant, and find out why these flavour tripping parties are all the rage in the underground eating circuits of America and Japan. Upon your arrival, you'll be given a few of these coffee bean-sized babies, so named for its miraculous taste-changing properties. Just swirl one in your mouth for about a minute, and your miraculous tasting adventure will then begin. You’ll get to indulge in a smorgasbord of the sourest of fruits, and the most bitter of vegetables. Lemons will taste like lemonade, and goat cheese will taste like candy…at least for about 15-30 minutes. It’s really nothing short of a ‘miracle’.

Disclaimer: We’re not responsible if you get a sugar high.
