Starting 27 February 2012, Carlton Hotel launches English High Tea at Gravity Bar. The elegant three-tier English High Tea features sandwiches, tart, madeleine, cheese cake and scones made specially by the hotel's new Executive Pastry Chef Alex Chou Tze Jen.
*Do note that the above picture shows 2 servings of the three-tier English High Tea set.
The highlight of the high tea is the warm and delicious scones. Slightly crisp on the top and soft on the inside. It has a rich buttery smell and cake like texture as oppose to some others which crumbles easily. The scones are best eaten with Carlton's homemade strawberry jam and clotted cream.
Pastries include the Pistachio Cherry Madeleine - moist pistachio cake with a dollop of sweet, fresh cream in the middle along with a cherry. This is my first time eating Madeleine this manner and the combination of pistachio, cream and cherry was really good. The cheese cake has a very smooth texture and a crumbly base. The blueberry fruit tart is not too be missed. Its crust is so thin and crisp and compliments well with vanilla custard cream and sweet, juicy blueberries.
The third layer contains 4 different varieties of sandwiches made with fluffy white and whole meal bread. The 4 flavors are chicken, smoked salmon, tomato basil and egg mayo.
Gravity Bar is a nice place for a laid back afternoon. The carpeted flooring and sofa seats gives it an additional homely feeling.
Last but not least, special thanks to Ms Leung Yi Wen, Marketing Communications Manager for the invite and warm hospitality.
