The Market - Durian Afternoon Tea

This September, at the peak season of Durians, it is especially delightful to be informed that Hotel Icon has invited a special Chef to prepare an afternoon tea with the theme of Durian! The afternoon tea is served at The Market, where I have previously gone for a spectacular  dinner buffet that also includes a variety of durian desserts.
The Durian Combo tea is per person serving, each comes with a compulsory drink choosing from regular coffee, espresso, cappuccino, latte, mocha or tea such as Earl Grey, Peppermint and Camomile etc.
The aroma coming from the souffle is the first that caught my excitement. It is fluffy, airy and filled with durian flesh. It is my favourite! Followed by the crispy puff pastries layering between the smooth and rich durian custard, hmmm!!! Although the little mini truffle is made of white chocolate filled with fleshy durian, it doesn't count to my liking. The egg waffle assembles the traditional Hong Kong street snack, the filling of durian flesh has kicked it up to a HUGH level, contrasted with the kaya jam on top! Finally, the spongy swiss roll appears green in colour after the addition of pandan juice, its lightness perfectly matches the durian cream filling. We are so lucky to have given a BIG surprise with a free homemade durian ice cream at the end of the meal, thanks Chef! Some free samples of durian cheese tarts are also served, this is undeniably the BEST afternoon tea I have ever had!
*P.S. The high tea has been extended until the end of October, action now durian lovers!
