Afternoon Tea @ IVIV (OneSixFive) Lounge & Bar, InterContinental KL

After checking in at InterContinental KL for our staycation, we headed down to IVIV (OneSixFive) Lounge & Bar for a spot of afternoon tea. Afternoon tea is available daily from 2pm to 5pm at the elegant lounge fringed by a tropical garden and a cascading waterfall.


Guests can choose to have either the Selera Afternoon Tea, which features a Malaysian influenced menu or the Royal Afternoon Tea, for a traditional English afternoon tea experience. Each set is priced at RM87.50 nett and comes with a pot of tea.

I went for the organic lychee tea from Japan, while Hubby went for the Panettone, named in honour of the classic Italian cake. I was advised that they will soon cease serving these teas and will be serving a range of TWG teas.



The Selera Afternoon Tea showcases sesame and plain scones, served with Devonshire clotted cream and fresh preserves and pastries such as durian éclair, mango panna cotta with mango sago, kuih lapis lamington, red bean and chocolate opera and egg tart with pineapple carpaccio. From the savouries, you can find mini rendang beef burgers, chicken satay pao and tuna and avocado 'kuih paiti', lamb samosa with mango chutney, and butter prawn saffron roll.




On the other hand, the Royal Afternoon Tea selection includes raisin and plain scones, also served with Devonshire clotted cream and fresh preserves as well as pastries such as lemon meringue tart, caramel éclairs, hazelnut and tonka bean macaron, chocolate and pistachio opera and green tea creme brulee. We also enjoyed the savouries; crab rémoulade roll, smoked salmon and caviar crostini, lobster and asparagus bagel, Peking duck roll and wagyu beef tartare brioche. Both sets are good, however if I was to choose a favorite, I would go for the Royal Afternoon Tea.






Nice view from the lounge
