Chef Noah Sandoval of Oriole in mirihi, 2023

05 May, 2023

This month Mirihi is celebrating Its 20th anniversary by welcoming Chicago’s two Michelin-starred Executive Chef Noah Sandoval of Oriole to showcase his contemporary culinary style utilizing Maldivian ingredients plus a cocktail pop-up by Julia Momosé of Kumiko, #25 in 2022’s World’s 50 Best Bars.

Mirihi guests can experience these pop-up events on May 25th-27th, 2023.

In addition to offering private overwater and beach villas, a luxury spa/wellness program and a world-class diving program, these pop-up experiences will add to the guest experiences available at Mirihi, making it a trip of a lifetime.

“Our team is excited to welcome Chef Noah Sandoval and mixologist Julia Momosé in collaboration with our culinary and cocktail teams, showcasing a two Michelin-starred dining experience for our guests at Muraka Restaurant and Anba Bar”, said Mohamed Shareef, General Manager. “Combining their expertise of contemporary cuisine and cocktail innovation with the freshest Maldivian ingredients will certainly be a once–in–a–lifetime culinary treat, and just the kind of programming we continue to share with our guests to celebrate 20 years of luxury hospitality.”

“I’m thrilled to bring this unique six-course menu to Mirihi, showcasing dishes inspired by Oriole’s signature dishes plus originals that highlight the fresh, local ingredients that the Maldives have to offer,” said Chef Sandoval.

In addition to a multi-course culinary experience, Mirihi welcomes mixologist Julia Momosé to take over the bar program at Anba Bar, Mirihi’s part open-air bar with the largest selection of rum in the Maldives.

She will also be curating Mirihi’s in-villa 20th Anniversary Limited Edition Cocktail Kit, including local Muraka Rum and Maldivian ingredients.

Oriole was awarded two Michelin stars in the restaurant’s first eligible year and has retained two stars each successive year. Since opening, Sandoval was recognized as a Food & Wine Best New Chef, received three semi-finalist James Beard nominations, and was named Chef of the Year by the Chicago Tribune. The restaurant has also garnered critical acclaim: Oriole earned 4-star reviews from the Chicago Tribune and Chicago magazine. Opened in 2018, Julia Momosé’s Kumiko earned the highly coveted placement in the 2022 World’s Best Bars. Momosé also is a James Beard Award winner for co-authoring the cookbook The Way of the Cocktail: Japanese Traditions, Techniques, and Recipes.
