To start, I enjoyed The Peaceful Garden – a zero-proof drink that was absolutely refreshing. It had jasmine pearl tea, elderflower and citrus.
I personally enjoyed the Lobster Roll ($17) which had a delicious, sweet delicate flavour and a creamy mayo. It’s served with a kale and hibiscus salad on the side. The lobster flavour was nicely prominent.
The Crab Benny ($19) was a popular choice at our media event featuring dungeness crab, herb salad, Matchstick sourdough, free-range egg, and Hollandaise. I personally enjoy sourdough bread so it was nice to have it in a benny as opposed to a traditional English muffin.
Another brunch entree available is the Nicoise Salad ($17) featuring albacore tuna, soft-boiled egg, haricots verts, tomato, and elderberry-anchovy vinaigrette.
There was also the Hash ($18) which was a bowl full of comfort food: fingerling potato, chorizo cotto, confit shallot, brussels sprouts, sweet corn, tomato, arugula, and soft poached free range egg.
The Quiche Lorraine ($13) was filled with pancetta, gruyère cheese, and zucchini.
H Tasting Lounge if known for their afternoon tea service which is served 11:30 am – 4 pm and priced at $55 per person.
Chef Shaun Maclean was at the event to present the afternoon tea selection presented in an adorable golden Ferris Wheel.
Savouries included scone with dried cherries, prosciutto croissant with lemon cottage cheese, smoked salmon bagel with caper cream cheese and dill, prawn salad charcoal bun with old bay aioli and herb salad and free range deviled egg with wasabi mayo.
The sweets were lemon tart with rock sugar; Earl grey ganache tart with raspberries and mint sugar; tiramisu; and beignet with blueberry filling.
Every afternoon tea set is also complemented with a bonsai candy floss.
From brunch to afternoon to dinner and sips, there’s something for everyone at H Tasting Lounge. For more information, visit htastinglounge.com.
