Ong Chin Huat indulges in that most quintessential English of traditions – Afternoon Tea at Altitude in Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur in collaboration with Halcyon Days.
It’s the ideal gift emporium with not just one but three Royal warrants to the British Royal Households. Halcyon Days are synonymous with British tradition, and craftsmanship—and lovers of curios and Objets d’Art ranging from luxury enamelware, English fine bone china, fashion accessories and jewellery can now get their fix in the Halcyon Days Malaysian store – the first franchise store in the world – in Pavilion Mall in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
A recent collaboration with Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur sees a Halcyon Days inspired British Afternoon Tea at Altitude, located on the 53rd level in Banyan Tree.
Specially curated by Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur’s award-winning head pastry chef Fodil Baghal, this quintessentially British tradition offers a mid-afternoon rendezvous for BFFS, ladies who lunch as well as business executives who need a well-deserved break or who wish to meet clients in the middle of the day.
Consisting of five mouth-watering sandwiches such as Cucumber and Dill, Turkey Ham and English Mustard, Egg Truffle Mayonnaise, Coronation Chicken and Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese and Chives this is a satisfying meal on its own.
But for those with a predilection for anything sweet, worry not. A three-tier serving tray filled with tea time classics such as Raisin Scones with Clotted Cream and house-made Strawberry Jam, Lemon Meringue Tart, the classically English Victoria Sandwich, Battenburg, Sticky Toffee Pudding and Apple Crumble will ensure no one will leave this place without a sense of satisfaction.
This British culinary affair is accompanied by a selection of gourmet coffee by illy Caffè and fine teas by Harney & Sons.
And while you are indulging in this most Anglophile of afternoon activities, do peruse the lovely goodies by Halcyon Days on display at the centre of the room.
Feast your eyes on the finest British enamelware in the form of pill boxes, bangles, cuff links, earrings and pendants as well as the collection of English fine bone china such as coffee mugs, teapots, ashtrays and serving plates, all made by highly skilled craftsmen and master artisans to the highest quality.
The British Afternoon Tea at Altitude on Level 53, Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur is available from 3 pm to 5 pm starting on 15th July to 31st August 2020
