MO Bar Redefines Tradition with ‘Air Floating’ Afternoon Tea

Nowhere celebrates afternoon tea quite like MO Bar at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. We pride ourselves in redefining tradition with a creative twist each time and this autumn is no exception as, until the end of November 2017, we present our first ‘Air Floating’ Afternoon Tea.

“Over the years, we’ve pioneered innovative afternoon teas from elegant, indulgent experiences like the Jimmy Choo afternoon tea, to last year’s rustic and fun, picnic-inspired afternoon tea,” says Richard Ekkebus, Culinary Director of The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. “This season, MO Bar continues to delight and surprise with its one-of-a-kind, gravity-defying ‘Air Floating’ Afternoon Tea, which redefines the whole concept in its extraordinary presentation.”

More than a feast for the eyes and palate, our autumn 2017 afternoon tea is presented in spectacular red and platinum balloons ‘floating’ in the air.

This original theme provides a mouth-watering, airborne array of gourmet treats featuring five savoury items: chicken tonkatsu in a squid ink bun with Hakata cabbage and Japanese BBQ sauce, foie gras mousse dipped in clementine jell-o and rosemary, corned beef-filled crispy baguette topped with melted cheddar cheese, a smoked salmon quiche with spinach, feta cheese and grated parmesan cheese, and a Niçoise vegetable crown with tomato jelly and a parmesan crisp.

Then five sweet flavours : a green tea and yuzu hot balloon that is green tea ganache and yuzu mousse crumble, a raspberry financier dipped in raspberry jell-o, orange and dark chocolate marmalade and mousse, a caramelized praline cashew nut choux puff and crémeux, and a pear and ginger verrine with ginger lemoncurd on a ginger génoise. The pièce de résistance remains MO Bar’s best-loved signature dish: traditional plain and raisin scones served with fresh clotted cream and preserves.

Priced at HK$598+10% for two persons, inclusive of a choice of JING tea or coffee, the ‘Air Floating’ Afternoon Tea is available from now until 30 November 2017. Mondays to Fridays from 3pm to 5:30pm; Saturdays and Sundays from 2:30pm to 6pm. For reservations, please call MO Bar at 2132 0077 or email lmhkg-mobar@mohg.com.
