Relive Your Childhood Memories at Pavilions Lounge, Sheraton Hotel

I used to do a fair bit of High tea with my girls back in Melbourne and it’s always a treat to pamper ourselves with sweet and savoury delights propped on 3-tiered High Tea. In Kuala Lumpur, the traditional British high tea isn’t high on the girls’ list so it became a rare occurence for me. However, when the invitation came from Sheraton to experience their “Childhood Memories” themed afternoon tea, I decided to drag Frank along. Was very tempted to put a dress on him too.

But this was way funnier.

Sorry, hope I didn’t scare you away with that photo. Hahaha. Frank has very fond memory of Sheraton having worked in the London Sheraton for several years, so I guess this is a soft spot for him. Still doesn’t excuse the retarded face though. Anyway back to Pavilions Lounge:

There is a different theme for Pavilions Lounge’s afternoon tea each month and I applaud their efforts for keeping things interesting. Although the afternoon tea here doesn’t come with your traditional 3 tiered stand, having a buffet spread allows us to focus on the things we really liked. Our favourite were definitely the assorted open faced Sandwiches.

Chichken, Alfalfa Sprouts and Arugula. Good combination.

Frank’s favourite were these delectable sweet and savoury combinations.

Strawberry in a sandwich? Why not?

Creamy cheese, Fig jam, lettuce leave, Strawberry…. sure sounds strange but surprisingly moreish. We might have pinched a few more than needed. Blame Frank. I needed to recreate this at home!

"Guli Petak" Quiche Lorraine

The only other savoury item was the Quiche Lorraine. The filling was tasty; soft, creamy and eggy with bits of beef bacon (which is unfortunate), but the sweet pastry surprised us.

Can't have a high tea without scones.

I always look forward to good scones but unfortunately these were a tad dry. The jam provided was shockingly sweet too. Hopefully they can improve on the scones soon.

"Batu Seremban" Ox-Eye Cookies

The same jam went into the Ox-Eye Cookies and it worked fine because the cookies themselves weren’t that sweet. I enjoyed this. Went very well with my tea.

"Gasing" Mini Cornetto

These cute mini cornettos were filled with coffee syrup and cream. The portions are small enough to handle as the cream can get quite rich.

Featured in that first photo with Frank, these treats went down well with Frank, and I adore the perfectly baked shells.

"Plaster Sin" Fruity Jello

Beautifully presented in Champagne flutes, the Fruity Jello was my favourite sweet treat of the day. The jello has a tinge of citrus and floral scent and I couldn’t get enough of the bits of nata de coco. Yum.

"Teng Teng" Brownies Marshmallow Bar

Chocoholics will love these delightful, nutty, rich brownies. I had to skip it because Chocolate is my nemesis (I get sore throat with just a little bit).

"Konda Kundi" Assorted Chocolate Lollipops
“Konda Kundi” Assorted Chocolate Lollipops

Had to skip these as well but hiding underneath the chocolate coat you’ll find a ball of lovely choux pastry and wait for it….. more chocolate oozing out in the centre. Heavenly, according to Frank the Chocolate monster.

If you prefer natural sugar, these would be perfect to wash down all that baked goods. Once again, very beautifully presented.

And the best part about the afternoon tea is the bottomless TWG tea, and you can go for any flavour that tickles your fancy. But if you like to spice things up, you can be like Frank and opt for “Danish Tea”(haha) – Carlsberg draft priced at RM24++ per glass. With 2 glasses, you will even get one free at Happy Hours starting from 5-9pm. For the ladies, you can also enjoy their unique sparkling wine with ice pop that comes with three flavours: Strawberry, Mixed Berries or Passion fruit for RM36++ per glass (kicking myself for not going for that now actually). Nevermind, this promotion goes for the whole September!

The “Childhood Memories” themed English afternoon tea is priced reasonably at RM40++ per person, and it’s available Monday to Friday, 2 to 6pm. It’s a season of innocent happiness!

Alright, alright….. Here’s a pic of my silly face too, to get even with Frank.

Bleh, Miley Style.
