The French-themed culinary affair allows diners to indulge in unlimited servings of fine French wines and an extensive array of delectable hors d’oeuvres.
            The wines from the hotel’s very own prime selection will be artfully paired with a delectable French-inspired tapas spread prepared by the hotel’s team of master chefs headed by Executive Chef Rene Ottlik and French Executive Sous Chef Remi Vercelli. Among these are: Profiteroles with smoked salmon mousse (Duchesse au saumon fume); Homemade pork rillette (rillettes de cochon maison); Tuna tapenade (Purée d’olives au thon); Curried eggplant caviar (Purée d’aubergines au curry); Steak tartare and potatoes “Lyonnaise Style” (pommes de terre Lyonnaise); and Lamb stew with spring vegetables (Navarin d’agneau aux primeurs), plus a selection of premium assorted French cold cuts and cheeses. To cap it all, tantalizing sweets such as Valhrona dark chocolate mousse, Baba au rhum and Cherry clafoutis will also be served.

Whether guests come in for an intimate tête-à-tête or for a hearty banter with a group of friends or business colleagues, the relaxed and casual atmosphere of the Mandarin Deli provides the perfect ambiance for diners to enjoy the finest of French gastronomy.
