Living Well/Travel: MO BAR at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore Introduces New Menu

MO BAR at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, recently listed on World’s 50 Best Discovery will launch the second volume of its menu series, drawing inspiration from the travels taken by Bar Manager Michele Mariotti and his team since the bar’s opening in late 2018. Building on the first menu’s theme of “People of the Sea”, the progressive new menu concept invites guests on a whimsical journey across Asia Pacific.

In each destination, the group partnered with local experts to explore the markets and meet purveyors to discover herbs, spices and ingredients unique to the location. This menu has been curated to pay homage to the cities visited and features 16 drinks, including non-alcoholic options, ensuring a beverage to appeal to every palate. Highlights include:

  • The Chiang Mai-inspired Expedition celebrates the coffee plantations of the region and combines green coffee, grapefruit and vermouth.
