To spend a leisure afternoon, the Lobby Lounge of Mandarin Oriental Macau would be ideal for having some light bites. It is an inviting environment featuring both Asian and Western cuisines, included an extensive drink menu such as premium loose leaf tea, coffee and chocolate, champagne and wine. In the mid-afternoon, they also serve traditional 3-tiers afternoon tea.
The caesar salad is a typical one, combining grilled chicken, poached egg, croutons, chorizo, shaved parmesan cheese and a caesar salad dressing.
Some Malaysian favourites are the claypot herbal soup with a rich broth, pork ribs and belly, serves aside Chinese fried dough and a bowl of steamed rice; the laksa is delectable with a coconut milk based soup, round egg noodle and generous serving of shrimp and tofu puffs.
I would recommend trying the Hainanese chicken rice. This three-in-one dish is typically famous at MO Hong Kong, serves as perfectly poached bone-in chicken that is juicy, tender, and has a silky smooth skin, along with a bowl of flavorful chicken rice, and one-of-its-kind-chili sauce, dark soy and ginger puree.
We finish our delightful meal with four cakes from the patisserie right next to the lounge, the Mandarin Oriental Cake Shop.
While the interestingly looking pineapple and coriander cake tastes more on pineapple, I love the vanilla rice pudding and strawberry charlotte, which is a combination of strawberry mouse, pistachio sponge and berry compote.
Last but not the least, the hazelnut chocolate mousse with passionfruit is a special highlight for this Autumn.
After all, we are pleased to bring home some gift hampers including a pack of macarons and homemade chocolate!
