My Weekend Hi-Tea was a Kaleidescope of over 200 Sumptuous Offerings!
Talk about mind-boggling! My recent visit to Cinnamon Coffee House at One World Hotel Petaling Jaya was an experience of an abundance of choice. My previous visit was during Christmas 2011 (read about it here) and the same abundance of choices was also present leading me to believe that it was due to the festive holidays.
Apparently, it’s not! At One World Hotel Petaling Jaya, the award-winning Cinnamon Coffee House serves over 200 offerings on their weekend hi-tea spread! Located in a strategic location, one can visit the spacious Cinnamon to indulge in a feast of international and local fare with a little something for everyone!
Under the care of the hotel’s new Executive Chef Israel Lazaroo who came on board the hotel three months ago, the weekend hi-tea at Cinnamon has now more varieties and more live-cooking stations which give an opportunity for the chefs to interact with the guests. The live-cooking stations such as the pasta counter, sandwich bar, local noodle section, Indian specialty kitchen, Japanese counter and dessert corner are now stationed with chefs attending to the requests of guests. Guests are able to order as per their choice and selection of ingredients.
Check out the Roasted Whole Lamb served with rice, potato wedges and vegetables. Tender pieces of lamb was well marinated in spices and made a beautiful attraction in the Hi-Tea feast. There is also Grilled Beef, Lamb, Chicken and Red Snapper on the hot warmers.
Nasi Lemak is no ordinary fare at Cinnamon Coffee House! Here, they take it seriously and offers over nine choices from Rendangs to Sambals to accompany the coconut rice. Choose from Duck, Chicken, Lamb, Beef Rendangs or Prawn, Mussel and Squid Sambals while basic Anchovy Sambal is also available. There is also a Pandan Nasi Lemak joining the accompaniments of hard boiled eggs, peanuts, fried anchovies and cucumber slices.
Live Stations offers Penang Char Koay Teow, Laksa Johor, Roti Jala, Tempura, Pizza, Satay, Seafood and Chicken Porridge, Pasta, Chicken Rice, Yong Tau Foo, Dim Sum and so much more. I enjoyed the Satay, Crab Meat Porridge and Roti Jala and wish I could have sampled more… J
For those who wish to enjoy a more western bite, there is the newly added Sandwich Bar, which is the brainchild of Chef Israel Lazaroo, which is filled with six types of bread from bagel to croissant, cold cuts, tuna, cheese and lots of condiments. I managed to snap a picture of my fellow blogger who enjoyed her Baguette Sandwich tremendously!
Japanese station seems to be a requirement these days and Cinnamon Coffee House also ensures that theirs is filled up with Sushi and Japanese salads of all sorts. Apart from an assortment of sushi, there is also prawn or vegetable tempura to choose from. Mochi coated with peanut or sesame seed, a Japanese dessert is another new introduction.
The Indian station presents a series of curries, breads, Thosai, Tandoori, chutneys and more. I managed to savor the Fish and Chicken Curry where both nicely spice up.
Hot warmers also feature specialties from various chefs at One World Hotel. Check out Chef Michael’s Roasted Chicken with BBQ and Deep Fried Crispy Fish with Thai Mango Salad or Chef Zaleha’s Tiger Prawns Sambal with Sticky Rice and Pan Fried Lamb Chop with Kuzi Sauce.
Not to mention, the wide offering of appetisers, cheeses and salads. Four types of refreshing beverages such as soya bean milk, pink guava, grape and orange cordial are served with the addition of the Bubble Tea store serving apple and chocolate bubble tea.
There is a Bread and Pastry Section that features a gorgeous array of savory and sweet breads, buns and French pastries. I was ogling at the sweet and sticky Caramel Buns and the Jelly Doughnuts!!
In-house made Soya Milk Bean Curd served with white or brown sugar syrup was a delight to eat as it was warm and very smooth.
Dessert time is always a treat as the array of desserts at Cinnamon is amazing! I had to admit, I was lost in the sea of sweet treats from their luscious Red Velvet Cake to miniature Tartlets, Puddings, Mousse, and even a luscious Caramel Crepe. Hot Tong Shui, sweet Baos, Corn and Peanut Pancake, Cendol and Ais Kacang is also detected. Let’s not forget the must-have Chocolate Fountain with fruits and marshmallows!
