Vida Rica is a thrilling amalgam of chrome and black marble, and the only restaurant in the five-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Although itâ€™s open for breakfast, itâ€™s really at lunch and dinner that the establishment comes into its own. Iâ€™m also a fan, whether for aperitif or nightcap â€“ of the adjoining Vida Rica bar, with its 7.5-metre-high floor-to-ceiling windows. The restaurant is a very neat marriage, with Master Chef Lam rolling out the Cantonese fare and his French counterpart, Dominique Bugnand, juggling Portuguese, Macanese and other international dishes. Whichever cuisine you pick, youâ€™re sure of a feast, complemented by a very well stocked wine cellar. If itâ€™s a special occasion, both a private room and a chefâ€™s table are available. Finally, the childrenâ€™s menu provides some interesting fusion items, such as the sweet and sour meatballs.
