The most anticipated restaurant for this trip with friends was Karmakamet Secret World – Aromatic Shop & Diner, highly raved for its beautiful and charming interior.
Karmakamet started as an aromatics brand, and allocating a huge chunk of space in their new F&B establishment for their products is probably what makes them stand out from the rest. The moment you enter the restaurant, you are embraced by a unique mix of essential oils and food. I mean that in a nice-smelling way. =D The allure of scents is wasted on me though; I didn’t buy any essential oil or aromatherapy products. It smelt good while it lasted.
It was close to 6pm when we arrived, and by the time we were done with phototaking, the skies had turned dark, creating an ambience that was extremely romantic and cosy. If there weren’t so many mosquitoes outside, or the weather so hot and humid, I would have loved to cuddle against the gigantic cushions outside and chat into the night with friends. Lush greenery, huge glass windows that let you peer in and out, old-school medicine cupboard-like walls displaying products, red brick walls, dim hanging lamps, rustic furniture, long wooden tables, nice scent, made one feel transported from the busy world merely 200m away.
