Afternoon tea at THIRTY8, Grand Hyatt Hotel Kuala Lumpur

It was pig's birthday and guess what I treated him for a nice high tea as a birthday present! Well, it's bored to buy presents for every occasion (Valentine, Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas?) and when you don't know what to buy when we have everything we need. Thus here you go, an afternoon high tea at the infamous Thirty8 Restaurant in Grand Hyatt Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

We parked at KLCC and walked over to the hotel since it's located right beside KLCC. Heard that parking rates in Grand Hyatt is expensive thus went for KLCC instead. We were glad to grad a nice seat with good view that day even though we didn't make a reservation. Oh well, it will be good enough if we get a seat without any reservation as reservation is essential because it's always full house. If you come on weekends, make a reservation few days or a week before hand.

Since it's a weekday, they only have afternoon high tea set and some ala carte menu available. The infamous ala carte dessert featuring their Signature cake and other famous desserts was not available and it's only available on Saturday ;(  It's okie; we'll come on weekend one day to try their signature cake. For now, let's go for their afternoon high tea set instead.

Their afternoon tea set is available from 3 to 5pm on Monday to Thursday. Priced at RM68+ per set per head. Which means each set consist of the portion for one person at RM68+ . You can share the set with your friends because if you're going for a heavy dinner; you might not be able to fully digest your high tea meal in time for dinner. We ordered 2 sets for sharing since we had 3 pax dining in and 3 hours later; we'll have scrumptious dinner at a fine dining Thai restaurant nearby. Thus, sharing is essential ;)

Each afternoon tea set comes with either a coffee or tea. Although we went for 2 sets only, they gave us another drink too. Yay! Thus, we had one coffee and two jugs of tea.  0.o

Here's the elegant looking afternoon high tea set. The three tier serving stand filled with pastry and cakes looks appetizing indeed. FYI, this picture consist of the portion for 2 sets of afternoon high tea.

From the bottom tier, it's the world of cakes and puffs ;) There's 2 pcs of cream puffs, 2pcs of Chocolate layer cakes and 2 pcs of Strawberry Cheesecake.
World of cakes ;)

Here comes the second tier; mini sponge cake or is it Madeleine? and tarts.

Top tier with MACAROONS and thin slices of nougat. Macaroon was okie (those at TWG was better) and I love the nougat. 

It also comes with 4pcs of scones and c-r-e-a-m-y cream and strawberry preserve. I love the cream! Creamy and light. yum. Scones was freshly baked too.

Last but not least, there's sandwiches too. There's 3 types which are egg mayo, tuna and chicken ham versions.

Afternoon high tea was good! You can enjoy the beautiful view of the Petronas Twin Tower as well as the scenic KL view. A good way to spend your afternoon overlooking the scenery while sipping your tea.

We sat right in front of this view.
