It seems that research has confirmed what we suspected all along – food would taste better when they look good. Researchers tested the same meals presented differently to diners in a fine restaurant, and the food was rated as better tasting when arranged in a creative pattern. Diners rated identical dishes higher on flavour when the food had visually appealing, contemporary plating relative to a tidy but traditional one. “The attractiveness of the presentation actually increased how much people liked the taste of the food,” said researcher Debra Zellner, professor of psychology at Montclair State University in New Jersey.

Looks like we are not that shallow afterall, or we are not the only ones who are superficial.  We are only human. We look forward to more pretty dishes from our restaurants in Singapore.

Speaking of being human,  we dedicate these two videos to our readers. They should appeal to both young and old as long as they are only human. Thanks for reading our blog!
