The Living Room at Park Hyatt Hangzhou offers a view-saturated space for friends and colleagues to enjoy a classy afternoon tea with an original and contemporary twist. The stunning selection of savoury delicacies, created with subtle French and Chinese twists by their executive chef Daniel, it well presented when East meets West.
The stunning afternoon starts with Savouries Combination: A classic combination of Kaluga Queen's sturgeon caviar and homemade pancakes. The delicious and tender porcini egg custard, and the vanilla quinoa avocado rolls and cheese yogurt. An afternoon tea without scone is soulless. Though the scone is innovated on the basis of traditional recipes, but the raison in it were soaked in the dark rum for the whole night to absorb the aroma and at the same time inspire the original mellow aroma of the grapes.
Unlike most of the afternoon tea which is full of sweet things, we actually had some really good dim sum, no wonder we were told by the hotel to come hungry. Shrimp dumping and the black truffle dumpling were absolutely the hightlight.
I love sorbet, I also love champagne, what will happen if put them together? The addition of Perrier Jouët is the icing on the cake. The bubbles and sorbet quickly collide and merge, and the deep, fruity, twisted bubbles that are locked by the cold continue to gush out, the taste is sublimated again.
The scallops from Hokkaido, fried and colored on both sides, it is paired with the milk-scented parsnip mousseline, garnished with ink crisp and salmon roe.
