Guests at EQ Kuala Lumpur are in for an extra sweet treat at Bottega Lounge, where an all-new Dolce Vita afternoon tea menu has just been launched, along with an exclusive new handcrafted butterfly serving stand.
The Italian-inspired afternoon tea offerings bring a melange of flavours in curated classics like fluffy scones, baked artisanal cakes and selections of sandwiches, a testament to the culinary finesse of EQ’s Executive Chef Federico Michieletto.
Tuck into an array of savoury bites such as the croque monsieur chicken loaf with cheese pierini, organic egg finger sandwich, smoked duck with forest mushroom sandwich, and smoked salmon bagel with sour cream, and indulge your sweet tooth with treats like the strawberry bouquet, raspberry vanilla macaron, hazelnut praline, earl grey orange chocolate tart, berries lime pistachio opera, and exotic mango shortcake.
To accompany the delectable delights, guests at the Bottega Lounge are given the choice of decadent tea flavours by JING from robust Earl Grey and Assam to soothing chamomile and mint. For an extra bubbly afternoon, opt for a glass of the exclusive Bottega Prosecco available on the menu.
An exceptional spread such as this deserves an equally heart-fluttering stand to serve it on, which is why EQ has collaborated with renowned Malaysian sculptor, Nizam Abdullah, to enhance the traditional afternoon tea stand with a whimsical butterfly twist. Each of the stands are hand-made and individually numbered, with a limited few available for diners purchase at a special price.
“I am thrilled to launch Dolce Vita today and cannot wait to hear the response from our guests. The team worked hard to create the perfect afternoon experience balancing tea and art,” shares Gerard Walker, General Manager at EQ.
“We have a longstanding heritage in the community of creating and pioneering one-of-a-kind dining experiences. It lies embedded in our DNA from when the hotel was still Equatorial Kuala Lumpur, and it will continue to be the way we operate,” he adds.
