Belmond Governor’s Residence in Yangon is going to offer a romantic getaway for couples with its upcoming “AFreudite Flames Night” program.
Starting from March 28, the AFreudite Flames Night – an attempted portmanteau of Aphrodite and Freud, one being the goddess of love and another founder of psychoanalysis – will take place in Governor’s Residence between 6pm to 10pm every Friday.
“We will serve an aphrodisiac tasting menu selection specially designed to entice all your senses,” said Miguel Teles De Menezes, food and beverage manager of Belmond Governor’s Residence.
The couples will also have a chance to take their photo taken on a Polaroid camera which will be offered to them as a souvenir. Miguel said rose incense will be placed near the table posted “to stimulate your appetite” and the guests will also get to pick small cards containing Freud’s quotes.
In the end of the dinner, guests will be presented with an aphrodisiacal Basil plant straight from the Governor’s Residence garden for them to take it to their home.
The dinner price is all inclusive $70 per person.
A typical AFreudite Flames Night menu might include the following (although the menu will vary):
Tiger prawn & Eggplant Escabeche
Garlic chips, Myanmar basil, turmeric aioli, crackers
Spicy caramelised cashew nuts, micro greens
Passion Fruit Sherbet
Surf & Turf Sea Scallops and Tenderloin
