The Chocolate Pralines are marvellous – Passion Fruit with White Chocolate, Hazelnut with Milk Chocolate, and my very favourite, the 38 Raspberry; dark chocolate and raspberries, what could be better? There are also Chocolate Rochers, roasted, slivered almonds enveloped in various shades of chocolate, and a selection of Macaroons.
Some of the treats come in glasses, for example, Caramelia Chocolate Soup, another creamy smooth delight with a wonderful consistency that drips off the spoon. You can also try white and dark Chocolate Mousse, and if that’s not enough, move over to the Live Station where one of the chefs will be happy to fill a crispy Brandy Snap with Guanaja Dark Chocolate Espuma, or help with the fruit skewers and strawberries for dipping into velvety heaven.

For an additional RM20, why not add on Thirty8’s Afternoon Tea? There are four Finger Sandwiches – cucumber, dill and cream cheese, smoked salmon, chives and lemon butter, egg mayonnaise with watercress and chicken with horseradish – providing a savoury start. The tender scones are served with strawberry and apricot preserves and Chantilly cream, and there are several little cakes. I especially enjoyed the Almond Friand, which was like a little Baba filled with caramel sauce. There’s a selection of tea and coffee to accompany the dainty delights. Just one word of advice; if you plan to take pleasure in the Chocolate Buffet and the Afternoon Tea, do allow plenty of time to linger. It’s the perfect location to while away an afternoon, and the longer you stay, the more you can eat!
