I am in love; I am so in love…
With afternoon tea
Located on the 38th floor at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur; surrounded by the panoramic view of KL, THIRTY8 is the great place to get over on a lazy afternoon. With the posh setting, natural sunlight crawling in, comfy sofas and chairs… all these contribute to the comfortable ambiance that I would choose to stay over for one whole afternoon. It was the ex colleague’s birthday, and we decided to throw her an afternoon tea party-gathering here.
Afternoon Tea Set
Priced at Rm 68+ per person or set
Comes with your choice of Tea or coffee
The tier high tea set comes with sweet and savoury. The sweet ones stationed on the tier stand, while the savouries lied on side plates.
Plain and raisin scones with strawberry preserve and Chantilly cream
Strawberry mousse slice
Selection of macaroons
Savoury comes with Finger sandwiches:
Cucumber, dill, cream cheese
Egg mayonnaise, watercreass
Oh boy, every tiny bit from sweet to savouries was really good. The macarons were not sweet, very lovely with its flavour; came crispy on the outer layer and chewy in the center. The opera slice was intense with rich choco-coffee flavour. Thought scones weren’t the best one of all I have tried, but still yummy and flaky to go with their preserves and clotted cream. Love the idea of hiding the scones within the enveloped cloth in order to keep them warm. That’s really thoughtful. Every little ones were really good, both sweet and savoury but we found that “Flowerpot” was tad sweet.
We all actually went ohh and ahh over this.
THIRTY8 Signature Cake (Rm 25)
This dessert is actually an eye-catching one. Served on a platter covered with a glass lid; once the lid was lifted up, there was the presence of striking moment. The surrounding mist disappeared and in front of us, appearance of this beautiful chocolate mousse cake, served along with the flavourful banana ice cream and dash of nuts and raspberries. Such a memorable dessert it was, rich chocolaty mousse along with the banana ice cream (I am not a banana person but I love this!).
Poured over of the butterscotch.
Straight from the Oven Chocolate cake, Raspberry Sorbet, Vanilla Anglaise (Rm 25)
Gooey chocolate encased within the cake. This definitely wow your heart too if you are a chocolate lover.
Yes for me; anytime!
Special thanks to the bff-colleague, Phoebe for photos of us and photos of the towers.
