High Tea @ Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur's Brasserie 25

High Tea
Took mumsie to High Tea at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur's Brasserie 25 for her birthday treat ^^
Heard about it from a new friend I met at the Lewre Bespoke Gorgeous Lush launch, turns out my friend has blogged about it too. There's currently a RM60 for two promo, what an awesome deal. 
Snug at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur

Brasserie 25 was full when we arrived (I was informed of this when I called to make reservations) so we were placed at Snug, a floor above. A lovely place, nonetheless.

Hot items

We started with some savoury items. Though all i could think of was desserts, the savoury items proved to be a tasty treat.

The salmon quiche was one of the best quiches I've had

Sweet treats!

The Raspberry Macaron was our favourite

We were pleasantly surprised when the staff presented us with this lovely platter upon knowing that it was mom's birthday treat. What a sweet gesture, thank you ^^

Great service by the pleasant staff, thanks for making our afternoon a memorable one. One of them Li Lian was even kind enough to offer to take a photo of me and mom, thank you!

Lovely high-tea selection, great service, cosy ambiance; more so with the RM60 for two price (till end of June 2017), it was our first high tea together as high-tea at most places is usually pricey, so I'm really happy that this promo made the birthday treat possible  (for my wallet :p) ^^
Have been telling my friends about the lovely experience. Hope to return for another high tea treat myself ;)

Gorgeous Lush by Lewré Bespoke

Inspired by the rainforest, footwear brand Lewré Bespoke launched its Gorgeous Lush collection in conjunction with the upcoming Ramadan season.
In a bid to do their part for nature, the brand will donate 10% of the sales to Pertubuhan Pelindung Khazanah Alam Malaysia (Peka).

At the launch at Wisma Tanah Aina in Shah Alam, guests had the chance to preview the collection before it is available to the public from May 20.

Speaking of the Gorgeous Lush collection, Lewré founder and executive chairman Datuk Lewré Lew said he drew inspiration from flora and fauna, as well as “the flow of the river and the smells”.
There are 25 designs in the collection.
“I have always been inspired by nature. Among the key pieces of the collection are the ones with butterfly designs.

“I want ladies to look gorgeous all the time and with confidence. When you are confident, you look good,” he said.

Ramadan @ Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral’s Nook

*MAY 28 is the last day for the early bird promo*

Quality over quantity is what Nook’s Sous Chef Ahmed Zaki Harun believes in when concocting up delights for the Ramadan buffet at Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral’s all-day dining restaurant.
Nook’s Sous Chef Ahmed Zaki Harun

At over 150 dishes, it may be dwarfed by some places that offer up to 300 dishes, but Ahmed Zaki believes that the smaller the spread, the better the taste.

With Nook’s kitchen recently certified Halal, the restaurant will offer traditional Ramadan favourites at its live action stations on a rotational basis daily in addition to its buffet spread of local and international cuisine for diners to break fast during dinner.

The chef’s Slow Braised Beef Shin Rendang takes centre stage on the buffet line at Nook’s Carving Station. Slow cooked for over seven hours and seasoned generously with traditional Asian spices of salt, pepper, cinnamon, star anise, it will be available daily at Nook’s buffet spread.

Another highlight is the Nasi Kambing Sumbat.

The chef also recommends the Telur Itik Masak Lemak (duck eggs stew), which was great with rice.

Wings are not my favourite part of the chicken but the Wok-fried Teriyaki Chicken with Green Leek had me going for seconds with its marination.

Make your own version of Pasembur by choosing your favourite ingredients, mine was the fried squid rings.

At the noodle section, I selected Sarawak laksa. The vermicelli soaked up the broth, making it a flavourful bite.

150 was certainly more than enough for me as by the end of the meal, I was stuffed before I got to try everything at the buffet spread.

Nook’s A-List Ramadan Buffet is priced at RM135 nett per adult and is served daily from 29 May – 25 June 2017 for dinner from 6.30pm to 10.30pm.

Early bird vouchers will be available for sale from April 15 till May 28, at RM100nett per voucher and at RM90nett per voucher for purchases of 36 vouchers and more.

Children between the ages of six and 12 get a 50% discount.
