MO Bar @ Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur

February 25, 2010

A slick, stylish bar that would benefit from a later closing time (last orders are currently before midnight, waaaaay too early for night owls).

MO Bar is set right beside Mandarin Grill, enabling customers to simply step next door for cocktails and snacks here after dinner.

Potato crisps and crunchy pastry batter with aioli, perfect for nibbling.

Tasting bites of Caesar Salad (with the surprising inclusion of soft, slippery anchovies instead of the usual beef bacon), Lump Crab Cakes (crisp & well-prepared) & Smoked Salmon Loin (generously sliced & very fresh-tasting, unlike most smoked salmon elsewhere).

MO New York Ginger Mojito (ginger-infused rum, lime, mint) & MO Chiang Mai Sweet Lemongrass Martini (vodka, honey, lemongrass).

MO Munich (vodka, apple schnapps, cinnamon) & MO Boston (calvados, amaretto).
