Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur is well known for its daily buffets at Essence, which I can attest is truly an excellent one for its price.
I’m a fan of Celestial Court for marvelous pork free dim sum and though I haven’t tried been to Villa Daniel in recent years, apparently it offers very good Italian cuisine. Meanwhile Toastina Café & Bar is a little deli that serves sandwiches, pies, pastries, coffee, tea and juices.
But many of us may not be aware of Pavilions Lounge, just a floor above from the lobby. Pavilions Lounge is open daily from 10am to 1am for a selection of light fare and hors d’oeurves. One can enjoy English afternoon tea with the premium tea brand, TWG tea on Mondays to Fridays from 2pm to 6pm.
It was my first time sitting here and sampling the pastries by Chef Chan Eng Hua. The theme for September is “Childhood Memories”, which aims to bring out your inner child by pampering yourself to nostalgic candies and chocolate infused pastry treats as well as beverages.
For RM40++/pax, indulge in a tempting buffet of pastries specially crafted based on everyone’s favourite childhood games. The chocolate and candies highlights include Teng Teng (brownies and marshmallow bars), Konda Kundi (assorted chocolate lollipops), Galah Panjang (sweet grissini with chocolate dip), Plaster Sin (fruity jello), Batu Seremban (ox-eye cookies) and Guli Petak (quiche lorraine).
I must have had a very sad childhood, for I couldn’t relate to any of these games except for batu seremban and plaster sin!
But any tea session is a good reason to enjoy good pastries, whatever theme it may be! We helped ourselves to Scones with Honey, Raspberry Jam and Whipped Cream, Assorted Homemade Pralines, Macarons, chocolates and cookies. For savouries, I filled my plate with dainty sandwiches, easy to devour and easy on the waistline; provided you stop after 2 of them of course. 😀
For those opting for “lighter bites” (hey I won’t judge), these little shooters of fruits are god-send. I had about 5 myself. Well, yes I was kind of full from a lunch in Prego earlier that day.
But I’ll never turn down a good cup of hot chocolate. The rest of us opted for the TWG tea or the unique beverage offer of signature sparkling wine with ice pop that comes with three flavours – Strawberry, Mixed Berries or Passion Fruit! This innocent drink is only at RM36++ per glass.
After tea hours, the intimate and charming Pavilions Lounge is an inviting evening retreat for an aperitif or a nightcap, serving a full selection of international beers, bubblies, fine wines and premium spirits. Happy Hours starts daily from 5pm to 9pm. Get a 2nd glass of a Carlsberg draft beer (RM 24++ per glass) when you buy one during Happy Hours.
So if you’re around Sheraton Imperial/Jalan Sultan Ismail area and looking down from your office window to a “car park” on the streets, save yourself the stress of the evening jam and head down to Pavilions Lounge at Sheraton Imperial for Happy Hour! 🙂
For ladies go for the Naughty Nutella mocktail, priced at RM30++ per glass. It is a blend of the famous Nutella hazelnut chocolate spread, chocolate powder and fresh milk, topped with whipped cream and garnished with crushed chocolate cookies. Hhmmmm, I think that would be my kind of drink! :DD
