For the queens, Mandarin Oriental is the hotel to go when we want to indulge in really good food. Tivoli restaurant is definitely our first choice. However - the other restaurants - especially the Chinese Restaurant Tin Hau is a close second. Last weekend - we had a great treat since Mandarin Oriental brought a Michelin Star chef to Tin Hau. I am referring to Chef Takase of Mandarin Oriental Tokyo's Sense restaurant.
We opted for the seven course meal. It is a glorious meal that definitely ranks pretty high in our ranking of dining experience around the world.

|This is a combination of many oriental dishes. Cantonese style roast pork, Hainanese Chicken, Shanghainese style Abalone, and Indian Style Acar.|
|This Roast Pork is wonderful. Great texture and unforgettable flavor.|
|The Abalone dish is refreshing.|
|Shark's Fin soup. For me - what made it better than your typical Shark's Fin soup is the Egg Tofu which you can find at the bottom of the cup.|
|This is our first time to taste Yuzu pepper sauce. The scallops go really well with the Yuzu pepper sauce.|
|This is my least favorite dish. The Steamed Grouper Fillet. However - I must come clean and confess that I'm not fond of steamed fish.|
|This is a very inventive dish. You see that white gravy? It's Taro potato. Mixing the beef, pepper and the Taro Potato is heavenly.|
|Of course - a Chinese inspired meal is not complete without the Rice served at the end of the meal. This is salmon fried rice.|
|This is the refreshing dessert made of Watermelon Puree with Basil Seeds Gel-o and Mint.|
|Complimentary Japanese sweets to end the meal. Mochi and Azuki Beans anyone? I was full by this time but I wolfed these down. They were yummy.|
|Complimentary Starter Drink. This is Gel-O with a hint of lemon. Definitely opened our palate at the start of the meal.|
