This Spring, W Taipei launches ‘Neo Orient’ W T Time set at YEN Bar on level 31 of W Taipei with the spectacular view of Taipei 101 building. The 101-tower-shaped afternoon tea set serves seven authentic oriental savouries, two western sweets, and one plate of fresh fruits. In addition, guests would enjoy drinks pairing with the set, the beverage choices from Taiwanese tea, café, to W exclusive cocktails. From 18 April 2016, the W T Time set is available daily from 2:30pm to 5:30pm at YEN Bar, priced at TWD1800 for two persons.
“YEN Bar, next to YEN Chinese restaurant, offers the most creative cocktails and stunning views of the Xinyi district, Taipei’s Manhattan,” shared Bradley Froehlich, W Taipei Executive Chef. “Neo Orient is the new theme of W T Time which embodies the concept of the venue décor and menu design. Guests can taste the Asia-inspired dim sums and delicate desserts with the breathtaking view of Taipei 101.”
Chef Bradley has incorporated the YEN Bar’s main décor colour purple and fun factors in the savoury dishes. He utilizes the purple local ingredient to create the attractive yet authentic ‘lips jelly with sweet purple potato filling’ which sits on a mini champagne glass filling with pop candies like the surprising WOW factor. He also makes the Cantonese dim sum “deep fried taro glutinous ball’ with the purple taro stuffing. The oriental entrées include pineapple bun with butter, beef cheese tart, salad shrimp roll, mango pudding, and fresh fruit daifuku (mocchi). W Taipei’s Sweetologist Yu Mei Ho plays with the same concept on desserts as well, purple-theme black currant macaroon and hot chili ganache chocolate cake with a hint of spice.
YEN Bar is located on level 31, the top floor of W Taipei. Toast to the bright Xinyi lights of sprawling Taipei skyline through soaring floor-to-ceiling glazed walls. To complete the artistry experience in the bar, take in the stunning art and glass installations all around the space, the epitome of the city’s most sophisticated setting. Guests can indulge in a tempting variety of delightfully modern Asian tapas and exclusive yet innovative cocktails.
