There aren’t many finer pleasures in life than brunch, views of the city skyline, and all the bubbly you can drink – and MO Bar at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore sweetens the proverbial pot with their adventurous cocktails inspired by history and culture of Asia Pacific.
Available on Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm to 2.30pm, MO Bar’s la carte four-course Weekend Brunch is priced at S$98++ per person. Pair it with two hours of unlimited Ruinart R de Brut and selected cocktails from their Volume III menu at an additional S$58++.
In an era where most great hotel weekend brunches start with cold, fresh seafood, MO Bar didn’t disappoint. All guests begin with a generous enough Seafood Platter, featuring half a snow crab, half a Maine lobster, three plump oysters, and prawns. Served with mignonette and a tangy mango tartar sauce, enjoy the crustacean goodness alongside champagne for maximum enjoyment. The elegant, fine-bubbled Ruinart R de Brut is a well-balanced blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier with fresh yet toasty notes of apple, pear, and brioche.
Thereafter, all we had to do was pick three more dishes from the different sections – Starters & Soups, Rice & Noodles, Main Courses and Desserts. This freestyle brunch means those with limited capacity can eat less and drink more by picking all the snacks, or go all out for the mains and the carbs.
The Strawberry Vanilla Cheese Mousse is a lighter and fruitier option after all the waist expanding savouries, but If you have a last plate to tick off and want dessert, make it the Grand Cru Chocolate. 72% dark chocolate mousse, cacao, genoise, hazelnut praline feuilletine – there’s everything to love.
MO Bar is located at Mandarin Oriental Singapore, 5 Raffles Avenue, Marina Square, Singapore 039797, p. +65 6885 3500. Open Mon-Fri 5pm-10.30pm, Sat-Sun 12pm-10.30pm.
