Eat an Emoji Dinner in Dallas!

2 months ago by Laura

Dallas Fish Market 🐟, a 10-year-old restaurant in downtown Dallas, has launched a six-course emoji dinner priced at $65.

First trialled during the summer ☀️, it was so successful that diners are being treated to an emoji dinner 🍴 for the second time round later this month 📅! The menu is communicated in emojis only so guests have to work out what the dishes are on arrival 🤔.

Nafees Alam, the restaurant group’s CEO, was inspired by an ice-cream shop 🍦 he came across while travelling in Singapore which communicated its flavour options in emoji 😝. He said:

“I thought, ‘what a cool idea’, everybody now talks in emojis 😎. If they want to go to dinner, they send you an emoji 🍔. If they like something, they send you an emoji 👍. It’s like we don’t write anything anymore. It’s all converted into a cute icon 😆.”

Alam returned home and set about turning his idea into reality 🍽️.

The emoji dinner will likely return quarterly and will allow guests to submit their own ideas for emoji dishes 🌮 on the next menu.
