Durian aficionados rejoice! Till 9th August, Marriot Cafe offers an excellent high tea buffet daily, anchoring around the King of Fruits.
When it comes to durian, most people will only have desserts on their mind. At Marriot Cafe, be intrigued by a creative and unique savoury dish – Durian Pizza.
Lashings of warm durian flesh, mixed with stringy mozzarella and creamy mascarpone, spread over a crusty pizza base, glittered with crumbled coconut shavings. Its apparent how much care has gone into this item, to ensure each component is harmonised with each other to achieve an exhilarating outcome.
Hover over the landscape of Durian desserts. Here, resistance is futile! Pick from a dazzling array of toothsome treats such as Durian Cupcake, Durian Creme Brulee, Durian Mousse, Durian Cake, Durian Crumble and Durian Cream Puff.
Continue the durian bliss with Sugar Durian Doughnuts, Durian Strudel, Durian Swiss Rolls and Durian Kueh Lapis.
My personal favourites on the radar are the Durian Swiss Rolls, where luscious swirls of durian cream is twirled within light sponge cake, and the dainty Durian Cream Puffs, where textured choux pastry is brimming with velvety durian mousse
Don’t forget to grab a scoop of Durian Ice Cream, which will definitely send you off to Durian La La Land.
Apart from the extensive collection of durian-themed items, Marriott Cafe also offers an impressive selection of items ranging from Freshly Shucked Oysters, Sashimi, Sushi, Dim Sum and Local Delights that will surely please diners with a penchant for Asian flavours. I highly recommend the Chilli Crab Sauce with Fried Mantou.
What’s afternoon tea without warm, crusty scones? Head over to the Western Station for a couple of Freshly Baked Scones, best enjoyed with a dollop of clotted cream and jam.
Marriot Cafe is a comfortable space perfect for gathering with family and friends, to relax over enticing food and delectable desserts. The buffet runs for a good two and a half hours, so there’s plenty of time for eating, making merry and catching up with loved ones!
