Mini Pandan Souffle
The perfect date food, a well risen souffle with its gooey centre, upright edges and puffed out chest has to be one of the sexiest desserts in history. Whisk up one of these dreamy creations and you're assured both mother-in-law's and your romantic interest's full attention. Don't despair if you're not a whizz in the kitchen though, Bistro 160 has got you covered.
Bistro 160 at Grand Millennium is currently holding an afternoon tea soufflé promotion. The regular three tiered afternoon tea tray now comes with a mini soufflé. Choose from orange, pandan, chocolate or vanilla. Made fresh upon order, guests enjoy a trio of layers of sweet and savoury treats while waiting for the specialty to be whisked, puffed and cooked on the spot.
The top tier of the afternoon tray consists of three types of sandwiches, egg, tuna and smoked salmon. Wholemeal, focaccia and white bread provide variety for the fillings. Customer satisfaction is their goal, so if you prefer one ingredient over another, you’re welcome to order as desired. The middle row holds two fresh scones. One raisin and one plain come served hot with jam, butter and cream. The bottom plate displays a mix of bite size tarts and cakes. We tried the moussecake, chocolate fruit tart, lemon merengue tart and chocolate cake. This subtly sweetened selection is chosen to complement rather than overpower the already saccharine soufflé.
The puffy creation comes to you piping from the oven with creamy vanilla and dense chocolate sauces. Ballooning over the edges of the ceramic pot, the icing sugar coated top begs to be broken. Dig in fast as the key to eating soufflé is capturing the feathery aerated centre before deflation. The pandan version, presenting with a bright green hue, is sure to be a favourite amongst local taste buds, while the chocolate is bound to be a general all round crowd pleaser.
A la carte soufflé, which is about twice the size of the mini version accompanying the tea tray can also be ordered. The set comes with tea or coffee as desired. Served daily from 3 – 6pm, at RM38++ per person, this billowing pot set might be the answer for a perfect first date.
