Afternoon Tea Date | 2PM G Hotel Kelawai

Wednesday, 19 July 2017
Hello readers! I'm bringing you a good news! 
Before that, I want to ask you, you and you: As a Penang lang, have you ever heard about G Hotel? Who never know G hotel? Can raise up your hands? Anyone? *Clearing throat* Erhemmm.... No response? So I bet its a big 'NO NO' from you guys. HAHA! Frankly speaking, I know its existence for so long already but it was my first time to visit this beautiful hotel. Thankyou Annie for the invitation. 
I know 2PM G Hotel Kelawai is famed for it's 2pm-5pm daily afternoon tea. 2PM is featuring a three-tiered silver stand of new treats on the plates from July onwards including homemade scones, fruit tartlets, macarons, sliders, French pastries and a pot of tea of your choice. Now, the afternoon tea set is priced at RM50 nett for 2 person's sharing portion. Girlfriend/ boyfriend can pay attention, you have a new place to hang out already. 
Step into G Kelawai, I can conclude that this place is sophisticated and well crafted. It's ambiance is relaxing and unwinding. Contemporary furnishings and natural light streaming through the windows are inviting and cheering. Especially the outside seats, I really love natural sunlight. It adds shines to this place.
 Me can't resist to take a pic in good lighting.
Today's companion: pretty Shih ming :)
The atmosphere is a thumb up for us as a first timer! So, now let's have a look on what they have for afternoon tea.
Scones. 
Macarons. Their macarons are the least sweet among those I have eaten. (Though still sweet)
Mini burgers (Patty made up of prawns and chickens) This is a yum!
Mini fruit tarts. I personally like this! They just look so appetizing. 
Croissants with ham slices
Garnishing such as pandan leaves, butterfly pea flowers, mixed fruits like strawberry, canned mandarin orange, canned lychee, mixed nuts and chocolate decos like sticks and slices. 
Before we can try the food, we have had an interesting activity: Photo challenge! We are required to make our own set of three tier afternoon tea set by filling our plates with the food as shown. These are all items included for recent afternoon tea promotion set. Once completed, we need to showcase our creativity by decorating them. Then, we need to post it on Instagram to gain votes. The winner of the day will get attractive prize! Oh it's the most creative food review I have ever attended! 
 With my apron, I'm ready for the challenge.
Messing up my plates, I was a little nervous to group them together. Haha. look at the anxious face.
Deng deng deng! My baby is out! I chose the strawberry tart as the main attraction cause I simply love the color combo. The most satisfying plate among 3 tiers that I have arranged.
Tell me, who doesn't like desserts? 
Annie actually explained what goes where for the three-tiers stand to us. Do you know about this? 

[Sharing] Proper food placement will be like this: Savouries such as tarts/ croissant/ sandwich those more filling food on the first and second tier. Scones usually will be at first level. While sweet desserts get to stay at third tier. Typically, each tier will accommodate equal service for 2 person. Usually, it suits for small group as the stand itself already takes up more table space.
Having a splendid moment with shih ming. This place is a gem. We're having our earl grey. 
After uploading our picture, we finally can sit down and relax and try out the food.

These are a few pages of the menu .
Chilli Margarita Pizza is a boom! If you like spicy, can try this!
If you want to have some light snacks, can opt for Chicken in basket. Perfect to eat while gossiping. 
This is the famous Pomegranate mojito. One of the Cuba's cocktail with a twist. spice rum, pomegranate syrup, lime fresh mint and soda water. First sip was really strong! Cause I didn't blend it well. But its getting smoother after few sips, refreshing! You can try this!
Get to know a few food bloggers based at PG and we have had a wonderful time chit chatting. 
Oh yay! Happy girl is happy! I won the first prize! Thanks guys for showering me with your love and likes.

Thanks for reading! 
Don't forget to jio your friends/ family for afternoon tea. XOXO
