ARTEASTRY High Tea @ TRACE, Element Kuala Lumpur

  • Sumo

Do bear with me a little; here is another piece of dessert post to go. TRACE at Element Kuala Lumpur offers a very value for money high tea/ afternoon tea! I’d blogged about my first experience , but this round, I found that they have leveled up the whole thing. At only Rm 128 nett for 2 pax, you get to enjoy a perfect afternoon and walk out with satisfying stomach and also tastebuds. So… more dessert.

Set against the modern, artistic features of Element Kuala Lumpur; situated at Level 40 of the tallest eco-friendly hotel TRACE Restaurant & Bar offers a unique high tea experience with breathtaking Kuala Lumpur city view. You will be served with sweets and savouries and then the pastry chef will turn the table top into her drawing paper and present out a piece of edible arts, fill it with “colours” and “drawings”.

We started off with an array of dainty cold savouries, presented on a black clay slate and decorated with a smoky dry ice that gave a magical feeling. The bites a mix of western and Asian presentation and I loved all of them!

Hot Savouries came next, and I found myself couldn’t stop on the lemongrass Spiced Fish. Delicious! Chicken Pie was served piping hot with buttery pastry layer, so did the shepherd pies and beef sliders too. At this stage, we were quite full.

Time for some real sweet stuffs. No high tea is complete without scones. Light and fluffy scones were served to us, along with the fruit tartlet. Love the fruit tartlet that was made with flaky buttery pastry base.

Coming up to the most exciting part – ARTEASTRY experience, presented by the chef, using the table top to do her artwork.

The chef painted the table with drips and stokes made with chocolate sauce, raspberry confit, chocolate soil, biscuit crumbs, mango chutney; placed the gigantic green tinted chocolate sphere on the soil, finally decorated the art piece with peanut butter macaroons, colourful marshmallow, jelly beans and cut fruits.

I was given a chance to perform the gentle knock with the tool before a drizzle of hot chocolate being pour over the sphere. Inside, there were buttery cheesy cheese cake cubes which were pretty yummy and not overly satiating! At this stage, we were indeed very very full! And this is why I said earlier, this is the best find that is most value for money afternoon tea I came across so far!
