Lime @ PARKROYAL on Pickering - Afternoon Tea With Local Flavours
For those that enjoys a good afternoon catching with friends, you will be delight to know tht Lime at PARKROYAL on Pickering has refreshed their Afternoon Tea menu with three tiers of joy that features local inspired savoury items as well as sweet delights.
The afternoon tea is available from 3pm to 6pm daily. For $42, you get a high tea set and a single servicing of specialty coffee and TWG Tea. For an additional top up of $6 at $48, you get a high tea set and unlimited servicing of specialty coffee and TWG Tea. Each high tea set is good for 2 person.
The local flavours item on the high tea menu includes item such Nasi Lemak, Peking Duck Duxelles encased in Profiterole and Ayam Percik Shepherd's Pie. The nasi lemak is shaped in a ball and deep fried, so what like a risotto ball, served with potent sambal chilli. Our favoruite among the savory items goes to the flavourful Peking Duck Duxelles paired excellently with the soft and fluffy profiterole.
I personally prefer the sweet over the savoury. The refreshed menu features rich and luscious cholocate treats such as the Chocolate Pudding with Guanaja Chantilly and Peanut Butter Chocolate Cup with Guanaja Chantilly. New sweett creations includes Passionfruit Meringue Tart, Forest Berries Basket, and Coconut Pandan Mousse.
My group felt a bit short that the new afternoon tea menu does not come with scones. I am not a big scone fan so it does not really matter to me, However after they raved about how good it was, it made me wanna try it too. Hopefully the restaurant will do a minor tweak and bring back the scones for the high tea menu.
Note: This is an invited tasting.
