Le Gouter, A French Afternoon Tea at Hotel Stripes, Kuala Lumpur

Le Gouter, a French afternoon tea at Hotel Stripes, remains one of the best value experiences in the city. Upon opening the hotel offered unlimited servings of warm savouries, French pastries and a hot beverage at the very attractive price of RM60 for two pax, and this deal, we’re happy to learn on a return visit, continues until the 30th of June.

Brasserie 25, Hotel Stripes’ French restaurant, with its exposed bricks, wood and marble surfaces, and shiny metallic chandeliers is a pleasant location for an afternoon spent sipping and nibbling. Natural light streams through the windows, and we’re very comfortable in our cushioned seating.

Hot beverage choices of espresso based coffees or hot chocolate come with the set or the house blend tea is generously poured throughout.

Unlimited servings of hot savouries are presented in a fancy dented copper box. Chicken curry puffs are packed with ingredients with decent pieces of meat part of the filling. The pastry is wonderfully buttery and folded in multiple layers producing a flakiness that melts in the mouth. Mini salmon quiches too are plentiful with protein and complemented with fresh herbs. Lastly a cheesy surprise is found inside the risotto balls – yum!

Toasted cheese and beef ham sandwiches are passed around by handsomely uniformed waiters providing a decadent bite. Slightly sweet and fluffy bread (almost brioche like in texture) is lavishly buttered before preparation causing the edges to toast to a golden brown, in turn, enhancing the melty-cheese filling.

It would be easy to ask for repeat orders of any of the above, but it is highly advisable to leave room for the sweets. A tray of French pastries is colourful in hue as well as variety.

French Pastries

There are far too many here for us to try in one sitting, but we do note the guests at tables neighbouring us making a very good attempt to complete the challenge! White chocolate cakes, chocolate mousse, citrus tarts, blackberry macarons, opera cakes, lemon meringue tarts, lemony caramel éclairs, kiwi tarts and glasses of biscotti and langues de chat (cat’s tongues) make a kaleidoscope of mouth watering temptation. In the end I decide on a very large macaron, which takes a pretty photo, and hubby attests to the deliciousness of his white chocolate piece of bliss.

As mentioned at the start, Le Gouter is priced at RM60 for two pax until the 30th of June. I highly recommend taking advantage of the offer before the price increases.
