“ALL ABOUT DURIAN” AFTERNOON TEA
Acclaimed Pastry Chef Danny Ho Tempts Tastebuds with a Sublime Afternoon Tea

Experience Centred Around Southeast Asia’s “King of Fruits”

Hotel ICON’s bustling brasserie GREEN embraces extraordinary seasonal dining and exotic Asian flavours with its “All About Durian” Afternoon Tea, available from 1 April to 31 May 2020.

Bright and beautiful springtime dining is just around the corner at spacious, sunlit GREEN. Home to the city’s largest vertical garden, this is the ideal locale for award-winning Pastry Chef Danny Ho — who has earned the moniker “Durian Prince” and over 120,000 followers on WeChat for his divine durian desserts — to present a sumptuous afternoon tea experience dedicated to this fleshy, richly-flavoured fruit.

The “All About Durian” Afternoon Tea begins with a choice of homemade lemonade, freshly brewed illy Coffee, or fine TWG Tea and a platter of Hotel ICON’s signature Freshly Baked Scones served with Clotted Cream and Jam. Sizzling Southeast Asian savouries follow including highlights like Malaysian Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce, Singaporean Char-grilled Dry Beef, Filipino Lumpia with Minced Pork, and Classic Hong Kong-style Sesame Shrimp Toast. Next, durian takes the spotlight with specialities like Mao Shan Wang Durian Pudding showcasing the unusual combination of both bitter and sweet flesh, andD24 Durian, Matcha & Lychee Roulade featuring layers of creamy, sweet flavour. The D101 Durian choux with popcorn is a mouthwatering treat that capitalises on the fruit’s mildly sweet, buttery notes, while Chef Danny’s cult-favourite Durian Kampung Cheesecake promises a perfect sweet finale to the afternoon.

With health and wellness top of mind, the city’s durian devotees will be pleasantly surprised to learn that durian is filled with rich nutrients and detoxifying anti-oxidants like vitamins C and B6, folic acid, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, potassium, iron and magnesium. An immune boosting superfood, durian helps lower blood pressure, strengthen bones, reduce inflammation and lessen symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress. Plus, all durians served at Hotel ICON are sourced and seasonally harvested from specially selected farms in Malaysia.

Sunshine, sizzling Southeast Asian flavours and impeccably prepared seasonal pastries and desserts await at GREEN.
