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

𝐁𝐞𝐞𝐟 𝐇𝐚𝐬𝐡 ($16++)
🐄 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.

𝐁𝐚𝐩 𝐗𝐚𝐨 𝐁𝐢𝐭𝐞𝐬 ($12++)
🌽 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 𝚂𝙼𝙰𝙻𝙻 plates. Great options if you're looking for bite-sized nibbles to share:

𝐂𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐤 & 𝐏𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐧 ($12++)
🦐 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 𝙻𝙰𝚁𝙶𝙴 section:

𝐁𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐜𝐨𝐚𝐥 𝐑𝐢𝐛𝐬 ($28++)
🐷 Pork Ribs, Homemade BBQ Sauce, Lime

Thanks Evan (@indulgentism) for the invite & Team Origin Bar for the hospitality! 💕

Truth be told, I've never had a nibble at Origin Bar until this tasting 🤭 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, 𝙻𝙰𝚁𝙶𝙴 section:
𝐂𝐡𝐢𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐧 𝐁𝐚𝐨 ($18++)
🐔 Panko Fried Chicken, Kimchi Mayo, Cabbage, Chives

Thanks Evan (@indulgentism) for the invite & Team Origin Bar for the hospitality! 💕

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 😉

𝐌𝐚 𝐓𝐨 𝐌𝐚 𝐓𝐨 ($26++)
🍅 Fords Gin Distilled Ketchup, Mezcal, Green Tomato

Thanks Evan (@indulgentism) for the invite & Team Origin Bar for the hospitality! 💕

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.

𝐒𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐡 & 𝐃𝐚𝐬𝐡 ($27++, left)
🥛 Whey Cordial, Raspberry, Amaretto, No. 3 Gin

𝐈 𝐖𝐢𝐬𝐡 𝐈𝐭 𝐍𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐄𝐧𝐝𝐬 ($27++, right)
🧈 Burnt Butter, Aquavit, Berries, Highland Park 12

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:

𝐅𝐀𝐐 𝐏𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜 ($27++, left)
🍑 Peach, Oolong, Cranberry Wine, Patron Silver

𝐏𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐚 ($25++, right)
🍎 Pine, Caramelised Apple, Coconut Water, Naked Malt Whisky

Thanks Evan (@indulgentism) for the invite & Team Origin Bar for the hospitality! 💕

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 🫶🏻

𝑳𝒐𝒄𝒂𝒍 𝑭𝒂𝒗𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒊𝒕𝒆𝒔 / 𝑴𝒂𝒊𝒏 𝑪𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒔𝒆𝒔
🇸🇬 Our Singapore Laksa ($34++)
🦐 Seafood Fried Hokkien Mee ($30++)
🐄 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...

𝑳𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝑩𝒊𝒕𝒆𝒔 / 𝑺𝒊𝒈𝒏𝒂𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒆 𝑩𝒊𝒕𝒆𝒔
🦀 𝐒𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐚𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐒𝐭𝐲𝐥𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐢 𝐂𝐫𝐚𝐛 𝐒𝐥𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬 ($22++)
🍢 𝐒𝐚𝐭𝐚𝐲 𝐏𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐠𝐚𝐧𝐠 ($28++, choice of chicken or beef)
🍄 𝐌𝐮𝐬𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐦 𝐀𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐢 ($24++)

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 😂

𝑨𝒍𝒃𝒆𝒓𝒕 𝑭𝒐𝒐𝒅 𝑪𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒓
☀️ 𝐓𝐣𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐥 𝐌𝐢𝐥𝐤 𝐏𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐡 ($22++) | Colombo Gin

𝑰𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒍 𝑺𝒊𝒏𝒈𝒂𝒑𝒐𝒓𝒆
☀️ 𝐋𝐞𝐠𝐚𝐜𝐲 𝐄𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐲 ($22++) | Bobby's Gin
🌙 𝐅𝐥𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐓𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐞 ($22++) | Nikka From the Barrel
