The Taste of Asia High Tea is priced at $35++ on the weekends and public holidays. As its name implies, the buffet mainly features local culinary fare such as rojak, laksa, chicken rice, satay, popiah and many more.
Since I don't like Chinese food, the Japanese section was my target. I had my usual salmon sashimi, edamame and wakame salad. The variety was rather limited as they did not even have unagi sushi.
There was also some international dishes such as smoked salmon and a salad bar.
In line with the theme of Asian delights, the desserts section also featured sweets that we are familiar with, such as fried banana fritters, pulut hitam and mochi with peanuts.
The cakes section had to be my favourite out of all the others. The chocolate cake was good! Dark and rich layers of chocolate mousse and moist sponge satisfied the chocoholics in us.
The mango and coconut mousse cake was well-balanced with the sweetness of mango and mild fragrant coconut taste.
Apparently, those who tried the durian puffs liked them very much. But since I don't eat durians, I can't comment on it.
I find that the spread is not very extensive. But this is a biased opinion of someone who dislikes Asian food! Nevertheless, this meal is to celebrate the birthday of a special friend who I've known for almost half of my life. And many thanks to her family for allowing us to join them and treating us.
Happy 21st birthday, Yoke Yee! I love you, girl!
