Yokohama Grand InterContinental Hotel will hold “Afternoon Tea Traveling Around the World” from December 1, 2022 (Thu) to January 15, 2023 (Sun) at the 2nd floor lounge & bar “Marine Blue.
Afternoon tea, a “culinary journey” to enjoy sweets from around the world
The Yokohama Grand InterContinental Hotel presents “Afternoon Tea Traveling Around the World,” bringing together sweets from around the world, as only a hotel with a global presence can.
The tea stands are stylishly decorated to resemble the sails of a yacht, with sweets and savories inspired by the regions and cities where InterContinental Hotels are located, such as England, France, the United States, and Belgium.
Sweets from around the world to brighten up your tea stand
The petit fours include the traditional French pastry “Sibouste” with its savory caramelized surface, “Custard Pudding” which has been popular in England for centuries, and many other confections representative of each country. The most popular Viennese pastry is also on display.
You can also enjoy traditional sweets that are rarely eaten in Japan, such as “Cardinalschnitten,” known as the most popular sweet in Vienna, and “Biscotti,” a traditional Italian pastry, at the same time. The “Afternoon Tea Traveling Around the World” is a unique opportunity to enjoy traditional sweets that are not usually available in Japan.
Menu originating from the hotel and savory dishes using ingredients from Yokohama
The savory lineup includes the “Cosa Nostra,” a bold sandwich made with the hotel’s original “Ikasumi Bread” and stuffed with prosciutto ham and cheese. The hotel’s original savory menu also includes quiche and mousse made with seasonal vegetables from Kanagawa Prefecture.
During the same period, a new seasonal parfait selection will also be available. This is an exquisite chocolate parfait with layers of ice cream and chocolates of different flavors and textures.
The combination of pistachio ice cream and custard cream, which go well with each other, with refreshingly sour raspberry ice cream and fragrant brandy gelée, creates a mature taste that changes its expression in various ways.
