Where you succumb to every temptation, where every whim and fancy is catered for, Original Sin proves that there's a heaven for sinners, foodie heaven to be precise!

Staying true to its name, this restaurant is dark and moody, with black furnishings and velvety booths that are beautifully juxtaposed by twinkling chandeliers. Here is where heaven and hell meet and the food is just as devilishly delicious.

The menu is packed with forbidden fruit. Take your first bite into that crunchy apple with their apple candied lambs sweetbreads and smoked tofu with mushroom spring rolls. Then sign a pact with the devil by indulging in their mains; choose from a maple glazed duck breast, baked salmon, chicken breast in champignon crème. Even vegetarians can be tempted with the truffle-scented mushroom risotto with Boursin cheese.

Then totally give in to your dark side with their dark Belgium chocolate flan and ginger steamed pudding. Top it off with a beverage which can be lethal if consumed to excess.
