Now, guests can snag their own Mukbang-making experience with the SIP & SLURP menu available in-room at W Washington DC as of August 8, 2019. Every dish from the SIP & SLURP menu comes with a phone plug-in pro mic to capture all the crunchy munchies as well as a phone stand to help guests record the in-room dine from first bite to last gulp (all for $285). On the menu:

  • Aloha Y'All: Tasso ham, caramelized pineapple, tomato, basil, mozzarella
  • Farmhouse Quaker: Smoked mozzarella, potato, red onions, crispy duck, farm egg
  • Cherry Burger: ½ lb house blend creekstone farms beef, red onion marmalade, raclette, dijonaise

  • Just Like Grandma's Cherry Pie: Served on cast iron with Vanilla Ice Cream

*See addendum below for a full list of what Antoni ordered to his room including lobster, steak, burgers, fries and 10+ dips.

WHERE: The video was shot at W Washington DC where the newly revealed renovation has transformed every room and space, from floor to rooftop including all 326 guest rooms, The Living Room, POV (iconic rooftop bar) and new food and beverage venues: Cherry and Corner Office.

WHY: Why not?! W always pushes the envelope and embraces what's new and next for its trendsetting and seeking guests. Mukbang is the perfect genre to celebrate the mouth-watering new menus at this iconic hotel.

Take it from Antoni: "Mukbang is by definition indulgent and the menus at W Washington DC are exactly that. Food is universal - no matter where you are in the world, everyone loves a good crunch or dip. Trying out this wild menu (ginger aioli anyone?!) for the playful fans of W Hotels is a super fun, over-the-top way to share a meal. No future room service order of mine will ever live up to this!"
