Chocolate Buffet @ Starhill Tea Salon, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Run, jump, dance, diet, starve yourself in preparation for Starhill Tea Salon’s chocolate buffet. Every Sunday in June, chocolate aficionados can partake in three and a half hours of saccharine feasting on some of the finest desserts in the city. An endless line up of cacao inspired confection is handsomely presented in the pleasant surrounds of the tea salon. Towers of tea tins, hanging pots from the ceiling, comfortable lounges and live piano music create a refined ambience, quite in contrast to how sugar addicts will feel like behaving. 
You’ll have to fork out RM50++ for the Sunday Chocolate Buffet, but if you truly have a sweet tooth, this is a small price to pay for the chance to indulge all afternoon on a mahogany river of lusciousness. Ichorous chestnut fountains, plump truffles, rich layered cakes, dense cheesecakes, pudgy puddings, bronze scones and an unremitting whirl of tantalizing treasures will send decadence devotees into a spin. Open sandwiches and savouries are purely a footnote. To wash it down, an assortment of teas are on hand and according to my Chinese buddies, tea helps to metabolize fat, so as long as you keep drinking it will all balance out right?  
Of this nectarous dream it’s hard to narrow down my picks to a few favourites to write about. Overwhelmed by rainbows in shades of brown, a generous use of berries, multitudinous shapes forms and towers, a throng of textures – hard, crunchy, chewy, creamy, smooth, syrupy, sticky – and a parade of aromas, it’s like swinging blindfolded at a piΓ±ata hoping for a direct hit to choose just one or too desserts that stand out. So here goes, one from hubby, one from me. My partner’s pick is The Concorde – chewy, crunchy and chocolaty all at the same time – a chocolate mousse centre is layered with cacao merengue curls, the crisp outer embraces the moist core gradually changing textures from soft to friable. My penchant, the Brownie – compressed madescent middle, dipped in chocolate and then again in fine chocolate shavings creating a contrasting composition from dense to flaky.

Every Sunday in June from 2:30pm – 6pm
