Now that the MO BAR is officially open, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore is bringing back the popular afternoon tea experience with a bi-monthly seasonal menu with views of Singapore. The MO BAR is a relaxing space that is awash in natural daylight during the day and the antique gold geometric patterns inspired by Polynesian tattoos on the ceiling and façade greet guests upon entering.
This month’s decadent treats celebrate the vibrant colours and flavours of Christmas. Begin with Berries-infused Tea Jelly with cinnamon red fruit emulsion, followed by a suite of savoury delicacies including Kueh Pie Tee stuffed with red wine cabbage and wagyu short rib, braised for 12 hours to render it tender, and a refined Foie Gras Lollipop studded with pistachio. Also, savour freshly baked Ginger Spiced Orange Candied and Madagascar Vanilla scones accompanied by clotted cream and homemade jams.
Conclude the mid-day indulgence with remarkable desserts on a two-tier stand presented on handmade plates by local ceramic studio, Mud Rock . For a touch of elegance, coffee or tea from the 18 new TWG Tea options available is served in white porcelain cups and saucers with a polished gold rim by Legle from France. Afternoon Tea is priced at SGD 48++ per person and SGD 88++ for two persons inclusive of one pot of coffee or TWG tea. For a little more indulgence, opt for a cocktail (SGD65++ per person) or one glass of “R” de Ruinart champagne (SGD68++ per person).
