Last but certainly not least of what we had from their small plates section:

๐๐ž๐ž๐Ÿ ๐‡๐š๐ฌ๐ก ($16++)
๐Ÿ„ Cabbage, Green Tomato, Mustard, Dill

The exterior batter provides a welcomed crunch, as you bite in to unveil a dense, meaty mini-patty. The slaw on top is necessary to cut through the heaviness of the meat.

๐๐š๐ฉ ๐—๐š๐จ ๐๐ข๐ญ๐ž๐ฌ ($12++)
๐ŸŒฝ Vietnamese Style Roasted Corn, Lager, Butter, Chilli

This is also part of the Small menu. It's practically a Mexican kueh pie tee - reminiscent of the buttery goodness of elotes at Cinco de Mayo parades. This fusion experiment works!

Also part of Origin Bar's "Bar Bites" menu (served from 5:30 - 11PM) are these ๐š‚๐™ผ๐™ฐ๐™ป๐™ป plates. Great options if you're looking for bite-sized nibbles to share:

๐‚๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ค & ๐๐ซ๐š๐ฐ๐ง ($12++)
๐Ÿฆ Smoked Tiger Prawn, Paprika, Yuzu, Caviar, Coriander
An explosion of refreshing flavours in my mouth - smokey, umami, & zesty. I love the contrast of the crispy light cracker with the freshness of the prawn.

Their "Bar Bites" menu is served from 5:30 - 11PM, & here another good dish from the ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š๐™ถ๐™ด section:

Truth be told, I've never had a nibble at Origin Bar until this tasting ๐Ÿคญ I had high expectations, because it's Shangri-La after all.. & I've also enjoyed the food at Origin Grill multiple times + have brought friends & family there to feast together.

From the Bar Bites menu, ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š๐™ถ๐™ด section:
๐‚๐ก๐ข๐œ๐ค๐ž๐ง ๐๐š๐จ ($18++)

The INFINITY cocktail menu is beautifully designed & a good read - admittedly, I didn't get to read through everything thoroughly that night. Will do so the next time I'm back ๐Ÿ˜‰

๐Œ๐š ๐“๐จ ๐Œ๐š ๐“๐จ ($26++)
๐Ÿ… Fords Gin Distilled Ketchup, Mezcal, Green Tomato

I would expect that not all of these "future-forward creations" would be my cup of tea, but from the brief read I had of their menu, I'm mostly curious to try.

๐’๐ฉ๐ฅ๐š๐ฌ๐ก & ๐ƒ๐š๐ฌ๐ก ($27++, left)
๐Ÿฅ› Whey Cordial, Raspberry, Amaretto, No. 3 Gin

Shangri-la's Origin Bar has launched their newest cocktail menu - INFINITY! This adventurous menu captures the talented bartenders' far-fetched ideas in 18 unique drinks.

Here's a sneak peek of some of their creations that I had - & coincidentally, both of these are served on a neat coaster with a story behind them:

๐…๐€๐ ๐๐ฅ๐š๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐œ ($27++, left)

The main courses are even more substantial than the appetizers (obviously)... I was so happy to be able to share them & try a greater variety than if I dined alone ๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿป

๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ Our Singapore Laksa ($34++)
๐Ÿฆ Seafood Fried Hokkien Mee ($30++)
๐Ÿ„ Angus Beef Short Rib Goulash ($54++)

I'm partial to the noodle dishes; the laksa & hokkien mee won my heart with their robust flavours & fresh seafood. Also, considering you're dining in a hotel, this is a good price point.. & these dishes were considerably cheaper than the goulash.

Check out some of the appetizers we had. While they are considered "bites", IMHO these are pretty substantial, & are great for sharing...

I've been having to host colleagues from overseas as of late.. Especially for business meals, I appreciate places where I can park everyone in one spot to have a good meal & drinks.

From this perspective, what's not to love here? The ambience here is warm & welcoming, while not being stuffy or snooty. Delicious food with good variety (both locally-inspired & otherwise), tasty cocktails, & all of this in a comfortable yet classy environment that is accessible & centrally located.

As you can tell, I hadn't sipped my way through the entire cocktail menu.. That just means the next time I return, I'll need to prioritize those 3 night-time drinks I didn't have ๐Ÿ˜‚
