It was interesting coming back to here. I used to patron MO Oriental since I was like 1.5 Years old. Back then the decoration was so different, I used to see Celebrities walk in and out, I do remember where the 1st Floor Lounge was located and where the toilets hid behind the Brand Shops. And the Afternoon tea lounge used to carry a Caramelised Grapes item for their Afternoon Tea, The Mandarin Grill Bar gave out flowers to the ladies and also cigars to the men by each visit. Such were the days. I guess nostalgic memories do really affect a foodie to some way. It was fun whilst it lasted, and when my mom brought me every week for afternoon tea but I guess it was more on pride, you know how it really worked in HK back then. But I did remembered the taste at least. The M Bar above? I have seen my utmost idols come here as well. Like Michelle Reis, ok that’s all I need to remember. She got married but was supreme hot really attractive even recently. Somehow it was good to be back here with fellow foodies and as a Catch up with the MO Team for a Cocktail and some snacks and a lot has changed these years.
Samoa Nutty Monkey - Samoa
Mix scotch, Green apple Schnapps, Toffee and milk. Garnished with a nutty doughnut.
Actually this was quite smart. The doughnut concept really wows. This is what I call Smart as a dessert cocktail concept and needs to be pushed online.
Mostly French Cheeses with Bread and Fruit Compotes – $178
This was a selection with Brie, Camembert and they said Spanish Manchego, but I believe it is Jarlsberg Cheese. Some people said the Cheese present aren’t at their prime state, but I personally think this isn’t always a given. It takes time to maximize their performance at any one time at all and we have to be patiently waiting for them to ripen up.. !
Arancini Nano Balls – $168
With Mushrooms and Cheese. I expected a stronger performance from both the mushrooms and cheese aspects actually. But that’s just being me..
Mini Pulled Burgers –
with Beef Short Rib, Kansas City Rib Sauce, Bone Marrow Mayonnaise $208
All I can say is, speak when you put more Meat than Veggies. I know not all Hong Kongers love too much meat, but to me if you are going down this American path you might as well make a Statement with more meat. Certainly some customers will come for this recipe with the lovely Cocktails. ~ 6/10
The Right Cocktail had a Colored Chocolate Leaf -
It was so Autumny and befitting the Season, even though if this season it was falling slightly behind in the colder weather. Posting a bit late but here were supposedly Celebrating about Rugby World Cup 2015
