One of my old foodie pals called me up after years of “hiatus”. We both are buffet frenzy-mates and so we decided to meet again in “high class” ambience. We decided to venture our tummies into unchartered territory: Asian Market Café.
I was shocked there is no LUNCH during lunch time on a weekend. Perhaps its a norm here to enjoy a dainty relaxing time splurging on high tea dining.
Anyway, by 12pm, I was seated in jubilant anticipation like a small kid. Excited. I have not done my research, I want to experience it as it is. I wanted that food curiousity to be ignited again, on its own.
The first time, I roamed about the spread of High Tea Buffet at Fairmont, my eyes soon drooled anxiously at the dessert spread. They were so colourful.
Guess what did I eat first? Durian Pudding of course. I heard with admiration how my long time friend spoke of it like a famous personality. And it is definitely SINFUL.
Portuguese Egg tarts are nice. With its crumbly sides and custardy yolky centers.
Laksa is GOOD!
So overall, it was a fascinating experience. Even the roti prata did not seem to make me go googoo-gaga… The curry is not bad. Thick and creamy. But growing up in Little India has pampered my tastebuds. And so I shall stick to those back alleys of little India. Those gems…of curry madness ooh..
These 2 photos are not a part of the high-tea dining. We actually waited to check out their dinner options. And it’s fully booked! No wonder…
Look at the pictures, don’t they demand for their own voices to be heard?
My verdict on the High-Tea: Avoid it unless you are craving for the Durian pudding. That is my only favourite, alongside laksa.
Ambience: 3.9 out of 5.
My advice: Wait for the Dinner…. perhaps.
