I have tried today the Asian Style High Tea at the Lobby Lounge located at the luxury 5 Stars Shangri-La Hotel in Dubai.
The Lobby Lounge is located on the ground floor of the hotel.
It offers the perfect blend of Asian and Arabic hospitality in chic surroundings.
The ambience is very tranquil and I enjoyed the relaxing sounds of their in-house band.
It is a great place for a business meeting, for a meet up with friends or for a date.
The staff are friendly, warm and welcoming. Josephine was in charge of our table and she was amazing.
She recommended me which tea to try and she made sure that everything was perfect with us.
They have a very nicely decorated live Christmas Tree!
It was a really lovely experience!
We enjoyed a relaxed afternoon.
You can see at the back a Christmas Tree with Sarah Jessica Parker SJP shoes.
The Savories were in the first 2 levels from top and the sweet was in the first level from below in addition to a plate with scones and jam.
There is a big selection of black tea, green tea and herbal tea to choose from.
Let me start with the scones.
There was 3 scones for each of us:
Five Spice & Fruit, Coconut and Traditional Scones.
The Scones are fluffy and come served with strawberry jam, marmalade jam and clotted cheese.
So fresh and tasty!
The first part in Savories
The Peking Duck and Foie Gras Truffle was flavorful.
This one was my favorite as I love foie gras and I am addicted to truffles 🙂
The Vietnamese Tuna Tartar Cone was an amazing idea to present it this way.
The Asian Crab and Slaw Squid Ink Tiger Roll was delicious.
I love black buns and here we had black rolls! Wow!
In part 2 in Savories, you have the below
The BBQ Chicken Bun with Sesame is made in the shape of a Lebanese spinach fatayer.
It was exquisite!
The Tom Yum Lobster Spring Roll was very tasty!
And now we reached the Desserts, my favorite part!
All the desserts were presented in an original way.
Starting with my favorite, the Yuzu and Tonka Bean Macaron.
The Ivory and Matcha Green Tea Eclair was delightful and the Mango Mille Feuille was very tasty.
The Chocolate and Raspberry Sphere infused with Shang Palace Signature Tea was original!
