Starhill Tea Salon

December 13, 2011

A cozy stop that supplies all the sweets one's heart might desire, both day and night.

Starhill Tea Salon offers no fewer than 12 macaron flavors, basically regular ones, from chocolate to pistachio, lemon to strawberry. Might not be the best in town, but still rich & gooey.

Mango cake with vanilla genoise. Mild in flavor, not too tangy.

Chocolate & green tea gateau with caramel truffle. Tasted reasonably fresh, even though we were munching on this at midnight (last orders are at 12.30 a.m. daily).

Engadine Torte _ vol-au-vent filled with caramelized nuts & chantilly cream. This, on the other hand, seemed disappointingly dry & hardened. Hits & misses here.

Chocolate sponge cake with choc mousse layers. Trying to straddle that fine line between dense & creamy, this cake tipped over to the former, for better or worse.

Choco Mint Truffle South African tea, perfect for partnering with desserts. Starhill Tea Salon sells a solid range of tea from across the globe.

Yay! Booze is also available: Kamikaze (vodka, gin, rum, lime juice) & Cherry Brandy.

Brown Cow (kahlua, milk) & Lynchberg Lemonade (jack daniels, triple sec, lime juice, 7-up). Cocktails here are pricey at RM38++ a pop, but they're pretty potent.

Creme de cacao white & creme de cassis.
