Arteastry Afternoon Tea @ Trace Restaurant & Bar, Element Kuala Lumpur

Every weekend, Afternoon Tea is given a modern, artistic twist at Trace Restaurant & Bar. Located on the 40th Floor of Element Hotel Kuala Lumpur, guests can enjoy Arteastry, a unique afternoon tea combining elements of art, tea and pastry, complemented by fantastic KL skyline views.

Enjoy an artistic afternoon tea up in the clouds :)

Discover public sculptures and art pieces around the hotel and then feast your eyes as an edible art piece is unraveled on your tabletop.

But first, enjoy an array of savouries and scones, beautifully presented in a contemporary bento box decorated with synthetic grass and black, shiny modern slates and embellished with dry-ice smokey theatrics reinforcing the "up in the clouds" feel. The savory bites include Beef mushroom herbs croquette, Red pepper tomato macaron, Smoked turkey breast in Paris brest, Soy glazed portabello focaccia and Salmon apple avocado in basil cone.

These savoury cones with creamy avocado and salmon were cute and yummy!

Does my lips look sexy?

Savoury macarons - interesting combination!

Scones is a must-have during an afternoon tea session. Here, you will be served a plain scone as well as a chocolate chip scone, with clotted cream and chocolate ganache.

Once you are done with the savouries and scones, the servers will lay a piece of  newspaper-like food grade paper on the table. Sit back and watch as the chef (aka artist) paints the "Into The Forest" scene on the table before you, using strokes of chocolate sauce and raspberry confit as well as toasted marshmallow, chlorophyll crumble, chocolate soil, mango chutney, fresh berries and light cream to create his artwork. A chocolate sphere is the centrepiece, and the kids were invited to partake briefly by cracking the sphere with a mini hammer to reveal brownies in the centre. Fun and interactive!
