maison es – New Afternoon Tea Set

It has been a well spent afternoon at maison es, a lovely French garden nestled in the heart of Star Street Precinct. The interior is a sophisticated garden-themed, where includes hand-selected antiques and beautiful collectibles.

As they serve contemporary French fare with a few oriental touches, the newly launched afternoon tea set starts with elements of the Shanghaiese such as a vegetable rice roll topped with Iberico ham and smoked salmon strips and tiger prawn egg roll.

Some popular ingredients in Hu cuisine are used to combine with traditional French patisseries, think like red dates opera cake, an elegant oval scoop of chocolate mousse filled with banana and rice wine and black sesame melting cheese tart that is unfortunately not very impressive.

Cassis macaron is fairly made with berries compote, whilst my favourites are their British scones and a lusciously creamy and smooth osmanthus ice cream.

Final verdict, I think I enjoyed the environment more than the food.
