Classic local flavours take centrestage this August at Axis Bar and Lounge, Mandarin Oriental Singapore as you celebrate the nation’s 52nd birthday.

Inspired by well-loved local cuisine, you can now revel in a nostalgic afternoon tea at the decadent bar in the ritzy Mandarin Oriental Singapore.

Simply have the best of both worlds as you indulge in a wide spread of savoury and sweet treats too good to miss.

Local savoury delights never go wrong

If you are one who likes to start your afternoon tea on a lighter note, you have to try the refreshing pandan ice jelly with coconut emulsion.

Following that, you can move onto more full-bodied flavours such as the nasi lemak cornet with crispy anchovies and sambal jam or an exquisite ayam satay encased in a tart shell and drizzled with tantalising peanut gravy.

It’s hard to decide between both so just have two – you won’t regret your decision.

There’s always stomach for sweet treats

Foodies who have a penchant for bonbon will relish the dainty three-tiered stand of desserts featuring bandung rosella bavarious, chocolate almond kueh pie tee and pineapple coconut sable layered with a succulent coconut water jelly.

Developed in conjunction with TWG, Mandarin Oriental Singapore’s signature tea will enliven your palate for a more enhanced taste of the desserts.

The signature tea is a special green tea blend finished with notes of Asian spices.

This special afternoon tea at Axis Bar and Lounge pays tribute to local flavours and is available throughout the whole of August.
