At this world’s largest indoor vertical garden bar, the spacious environment has accompanied us a wonderful and refreshing afternoon. The afternoon tea set comes in three tiers with British scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam; plus each a tea or coffee. Obviously, it is comparatively less heavier than the luxurious five tiers afternoon tea at Grand Hyatt Hotel.
On the first tier, an undeniably fresh shrimp is lying in a glass shot with cocktail sauces. Although I really can’t stand the duck liver pate but luckily there are this scrumptious tuna tartare with mini pancake and my absolute favourite thick-cut smoked salmon topped with its roe.
On the second tier, all of the sweets are beautifully presented, especially the cranberry cheesecake mousse filled with a layer of raspberry jello, green tea crumbs and biscuit crumbles on top. Perhaps due to the winter season, strawberry is a bit tart but the choux pastry has indeed surprised me with its slightly citrusy custard cream.
On the last tier, there are their signature mini lemon poppy seed cupcakes, lime tart and raspberry opera. The chocolate mousse is ornamented with a bittersweet orange marmalade preserve and a ferrero-rocher-like hazelnut chocolate crunch.
This has been a lovely afternoon spent with my friend 🙂
