Gartien Pineapple Cakes - Mid Autumn Edition

There are a month plus near the Mid-Autumn Festival (8 September 2014). Personally think that it is quite boring to eat moon cake every mid autumn, let's have something special this time!

For this festival, Gartien has come out pineapple cake in Mid Autumn Edition.

Our pineapple fillings are made of 100% fresh pineapples picked directly from our plantation in the village of Nibong Tebal. After picking up from the farm, all pineapples will go through skinning and coring process and then cut into cubes. The pineapple cubes are then cook for 12 hours till it is golden. This is what makes up to the juiciness and sweetness of our fillings. Every bite you take, you feel the texture of the real pineapples. The perfectly bake golden pastries are made fresh with natural ingredients and pure butter. It gives the milky and buttery taste yet the light and fluffy feel. Throughout the process, no preservative is added and is all done hygienically. It’s all prepared freshly with the passion and love for good food.

Tree Bar was launched on 11th July 2014 and I was very honoured to be invited by G Hotel to witness such great day.

Tree Bar is nestled under a 80 over years old 'Albizia Saman' which is also known as 'rain tree'. G Hotel made good use of the space and turn it into a cool handout spot which serves the beers and bites. 

Tree Bar is located at the al fresco area of G Hotel. The bar is designed in an open-air concept, includes a cooling ambience as it is situated under a tree. If you are those who like the out in open feel, you can sit out at the al fresco area, while those who like to chill in a cosy place or also in case in rains, there is a shaded section.

Among the menu that is introduced are international beers, wines, traditional cocktails. For heavier taste drinker, there are also more than 12 choices of single malt whiskeys, 12 types of liqueurs plus more than 15 types of liquors. If you are non-alcoholic beverage drinker, there are an array of coffee, teas, fruit juices and soft drinks.

In that evening, we were served with some yummy bites such as chicken satay, Moroccan Spiced Lamb Skewer, deep fried calamari, smoked salmon roll and Surf and Turf Quesadillas . I love salmon roll the most! :D
