Mixology hasn’t just taken the restaurants by storm, the bars have a new wave sweeping over them too. It’s name inspired by a Japanese manga series, Maison Ikkoku stirs up quite a few delectable cocktails. Whatever your mood and poison, the bartender can create heady mixes ranging from cocktails literally bursting into flames to spicy concoctions that can set your mouth on fire.
A couple of weeks back on my third visit to Maison Ikkoku with a friend, I was in the mood for some berry and my friend reminiscing of India looking for some spice with seasonal fruits. The Passion martini with chilli hair was quite explosive. Great flavors but go easy on the chilli. The Very Berry cocktail was perfect, bursting with colors and mixed berries.
More on Ikkoku in the next visit. A bit pricey, but great for a date or quiet evening drink in the historic Kampong Glam hood!
Budget : $30 per cocktail
