|MO Grill – A Stylish Location for a Date Night|
Miss Manners once said, “There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately. When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.”
The Yum List can’t guarantee the affection part of the equation, but we can set the scene by giving you ideas for fun entertainment and fabulous food. Here’s the first in a series of suggested itineraries for taking your loved one, or someone you’re hoping will soon become your special person, on a Date in Kuala Lumpur:
Mandarin Oriental Date Night – Golf, Cocktails and Dinner
For a date combining sophistication and playfulness, we suggest heading over to the Mandarin Oriental for an evening of simulated golf followed by a romantic dinner at the MO Grill.
Indoor Golf @MO
|Champagne, Beer, Food – whatever you want at Indoor Golf|
The Yum List recently toured and tested out the newly-opened Indoor Golf @MO and while we knew it would be fun, we were really impressed at the possibilities; dates, parties and business functions would all be great options here. I love that people with differing abilities can all golf together at their own pace. Beginners are encouraged, and serious golfers can finish 18 holes on his or her lunch hour.
Upbeat music and subtle disco lights (after 5pm) make for a relaxed party atmosphere and pub tables and sofas give those not playing a comfy place to relax and enjoy a snack or cocktail from the full service menu.

But while the atmosphere is casual, the simulators will please even the professional golfer. Inside the comfort of the air-conditioned lounge, three bays of screens simulate in 3D. Golfers can choose from 50 different championship courses or try their swing on the driving range. The latest high-speed camera tracking technology measures the ball’s speed, trajectory and spin, making the simulator 99% accurate.
In addition to the simulators, Indoor Golf @MO offers HD tvs for televising sporting events, as well as the latest Power Plate machines which are used by celebrities for accelerated body and skin toning. Golf lessons are also available.
