Other Menu Items
The various food items that we enjoyed on the review date.
Menu Items Included in the Afternoon Tea Set
Consisted of several styles of food items, all served in small bowls. Very enjoyable, but some were so delicious that we wanted to order more.
A bit dry and crumbly. Not buttery enough. Should be taken with whipped cream, jam, and drinks.
Thai Milk Tea Pudding
Beware of spatters when scooping!!
Sweetness was similar to condensed milk. Moderately fragrant with the aroma of traditional Thai milk tea. Personally, I’d like the aroma to be a bit more defined. But I think it’s delicious.
Young Rice Pudding
The flour was soft and smooth, with the distinctive aroma of pandan. Just the right sweetness and perfectly infused with the slightly salty taste of coconut milk. Liked it.
Panna Cotta with Raspberry Sauce
Just the perfect amount of moderate sweetness. Not too heavy nor greasy. However, the accompanying sauce we got was strawberries.
Dark Chocolate Brownies
Crispy exterior, while dry on the inside. Medium-intensity dark chocolate. Suitable to be taken with drinks.
Viennese Egg Salad Sandwich
Viennese Egg Salad Sandwich with Tamar Sauce. Mild flavor, soft aroma. sweet and slightly salty. Should be taken as the first course.
Garlic Prawn Focaccia
Crispy shrimps, salty flavored with a slight minty flavored sauce. Reminds us of the scents of spices from India.
Vegetable Spring Rolls
Perfect crispiness, not too oily. Good combination of sweetness and saltiness. Light and delicious, easy to eat.
Deep-fried Shrimp Cakes
Slightly on the oily side. Nice aroma of the shrimp, smooth and springy texture. Consists of both coarse and find shrimp meat. Perfect combination of sweetness and saltiness.
Sufficiently delicious enough without the need to dip in the plum sauce.
The chicken was soft and not too dry. The dipping sauce was very fragrant with curry paste and slightly reminded us of Indian food. Predominantly sweet with a smooth texture.
Spicy Duck Salad on Crispy Rice Cakes
The ‘larb’ spicy salad was delicious, flavorful and perfectly spiced.
However, it is recommended that it should be eaten quickly as the crispy rice cakes may be soaked in the salad for too long making it soft and not as tasty while it is still crispy.
Spicy Nam-Tok style Pork Salad
Tasted similar to the ‘larb’ spicy salad, but with a slight difference due to the kaffir lime leaves.
Watermelon with Sweet Crispy Fish
Sweet and fresh watermelon, served with lightly dried fish morsels.
Crispy Rice Vermicelli with Crab Meat
Infused with a traditional fragrance, mostly like from the citron. Good combination of sweetness and saltiness. I did not see any crab meat. T^T
“Ma-Hor” (Minced pork, salted turnip, peanut, palm sugar, and pineapple)
A traditional Thai snack that is quite difficult to find nowadays. Made from sweet and sour crispy pineapple, while the filling is made from fragrant beans, and is placed on top. I personally liked it.
“Chor-Muang” (Chicken dumplings)
Soft chewy texture, with a distinctive garlic filling mixed with the coconut milk aroma. Old-fashioned deliciousness. Could be better if the batter was a little thinner.
Smoked Salmon Dill Rolls
High-quality salmon, slightly salted with a light smoky aroma, wrapped in a soft crepe-like flour. Highly recommended. Would like very much for a second helping.
Beverages of the Afternoon Tea Set
Sencha Green Tea
Medium intensity, slightly sweetened.
The first glass we ordered was an iced latte. But before we could drink it, the ice had completely melted. The second glass was the hot latte. The standard is similar to any typical coffee shop.
The bitter taste of coffee was attenuated by the sweet sourness of the orange juice. Refreshing and easy to drink.
We only had the opportunity to taste a few of the beverages.
However, the menu list of the Metro On Wireless Afternoon Tea Set consisted of several drinks to choose from.
Listed below, are a few of the beverages that are on offer.
• Double Espresso
• English Breakfast Tea
