The new sophisticated and state-of-the-art “Afternoon Tea Reimagined” expands this popular English tradition by offering a more substantial selection of savoury and sweet items that are served course by course, rather than as a one-time tea set on the table.
“We wanted to upgrade and redefine our afternoon tea experience by adding even more elegance and sophistication. Our new week-end afternoon tea is a beautiful orchestration of five set courses served by our staff,” explained Executive Chef Stefan Trepp. “We have given this concept considerable thought and we have taken great care to create a balanced menu that offers variety, value, quality and enjoyment.”
“Afternoon Tea Reimagined” crafted by Kempinski is a spectacular culinary journey presented in the elegant setting of the hotel’s grand lobby and Hanuman Bar. The five-course afternoon tea consists of canapés, sandwiches, scones, mini éclairs and mignardises. The canapés include rice cracker with marinated duck, massaman peanut butter and sweet Thai garlic; crispy Thai tea roll; and mini honey with lime matcha cone. The finely-cut sandwiches include smoked salmon and crab rillettes with horseradish butter and lemon, pickled cucumber served with blinis and pumpernickel; and BBQ pork steamed bao with cilantro mayo.
The pastries and delicate desserts include freshly baked scones served with raspberry preserves, passion fruit curd and clotted cream; a selection of mini éclairs including passion fruit and mango éclair; bourbon vanilla and apricot éclair; and white chocolate cherry éclair; whilst the mignardises include marshmallow, pralines and assorted macaroons.
The new sophisticated and state-of-the-art afternoon tea is Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok’s latest beautiful and uplifting crafted gastronomy experience. Guests can enjoy a true performance as one course after another is perfectly orchestrated whilst the harpist is serenading beautifully, adding a graceful atmosphere to a mellow week-end afternoon.
