The name ARTEASTRY stands for Art, Tea and Pastry. Set against the modern, artistic features of Element Kuala Lumpur, ARTEASTRY is the perfect combination for a weekend social gathering with family and friends. Situated at level 40 of the tallest eco-friendly Hotel, TRACE restaurant & bar offers a first of its kind artistic high tea while presenting breath-taking views of the city.
The ARTEASTRY experience begins with the arrival of a contemporary bento box, beautifully decorated with synthetic grass and black, shiny modern slates. The bento box is intricately filled with dainty savoury bites containing Waffle with Salmon and Crème Fraiche, Apple Duck in Savoury Cone, Chicken Sliders in Mini Croissant with Tomato Relish, Tomato and Basil Macaroon, Confit Portobello Mushroom and Swiss Cheese Bruschetta. No high tea is complete without scones. The light and fluffy Earl Grey Tea infused Scone is served with clotted Cream and Strawberry Jam.
Dessert is the most exhilarating part of the ARTEASTRY experience, which is what essentially sets the high tea apart from the typical presentation of buffet spreads or three-tiered cake stands. “The Red Splash” is one of the key highlights of ARTEASTRY, it is literally splashed on your table. While you sip on your coffee or tea, the chef places a white chocolate sphere and paints an edible artwork on the table with drops and strokes of Framboise a la Mascarpone, Raspberry Confit, Raspberries, Meringue Sticks, Vanilla Soil, Sponge Fingers and Mango Chutney on a piece of newspaper-like food grade paper. To end the theatrical performance, guests are invited to pick the white chocolate sphere and drop it in the middle of the art piece, creating a delectable mess on the table.
Priced at RM78.00 nett per set for 2 persons, the ARTEASTRY high tea will only be available on weekends (Saturday & Sunday), from 1.00pm to 5.00pm at the TRACE Restaurant and Bar, in Element Kuala Lumpur.
