This month when you visit Bottega Lounge at EQ Kuala Lumpur, you will be greeted with a pleasant vision of pink, from its decadent bite-sized confectionery and savoury appetisers. “Pinktobar” has been coined for October as the month dedicated to cancer awareness.
In conjunction with Pinktober, EQ has joined hands with MAKNA (National Cancer Council) for this first-ever collaboration. Guests to Bottega Lounge will be wowed with a specially crafted pink-themed menu featuring savouries such as delicate artisanal smoked salmon sandwiches, and bespoke desserts such as black sea salt raspberry eclairs and pink macarons, all created by EQ’s Executive Chef, Federico Michieletto, who is renowned for his artistry, creativity and finesse.
The Pinktober Afternoon Tea is all about enjoying the sweet life and is available on weekdays from 12pm to 5pm, from Monday to Saturday (priced at RM99+ per person or RM198+ per set for two persons). On Sundays, the Pinktober Afternoon Tea Buffet is priced at RM128+ per person and it’s available from 3pm to 5pm. A portion of each Pinktober
Afternoon Tea set benefits MAKNA. A pink ribbon pin and souvenir photo is part of this package.
We love the unique stands on which the food of the Pinktober Afternoon Tea is served. In honour of Pinktober, EQ has collaborated with Malaysian sculptor Nizam Abdullah who created an exclusive butterfly stand for this special tea promotion.
Tea is central to any authentic Afternoon Tea experience. As such Bottega Lounge will be offering a selection of luxurious teas by JING, including Earl Grey, assam, chamomile and mint. To add extra sparkle to the afternoon, guests can enjoy a glass or two of Bottega Prosecco. EQ’s collaboration with the Bottega brand Italy ensures that the Lounge has the first pick of their cellars. The selection available exclusively at Bottega Lounge is sure to impress the most discerning guests.
Gerard Walker, General Manager of EQ said, “I am thrilled to embark on this collaboration with MAKNA and am excited to see the response from our guests. The team worked hard to create the perfect afternoon experience balancing tea, art and community giveback.”
