The game in the Orangerie De Pol-app is a nod to…

The Orangerie De Poll-app is a nod to the popular Fruit Ninja game and is available to download for free in the app store. The game features chef and owner Mark Captein of Orangerie De Poll pictured in the kitchen, who, at your command, must literally chop the right ingredients by swiping across the screen at the right place and at the right time. If this is performed successfully several times, the participant unlocks a recipe for a dish which they can prepare at home.

Updated app with contemporary dishes

‘A regular guest at our restaurant from Engine Software bv designed the game several years ago. It has now been updated with new, contemporary dishes,’ said Captein, who uses the app as part of the restaurant’s marketing mix.

Captein continues: ‘It’s unique for a restaurant to have its own game. Not only can you win recipes for at home, if you get far enough in the game you will also receive a reward. By showing this digital reward on your phone in our restaurant, you will receive an extra amuse’.
