FIP Lounge

Special thanks to Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa for extending this food review invitation.

FIP Lounge is 1 year old! Well not exactly, but it's around a year - give or take. Opened on 17 November 2014, this hangout spot at Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa stands for "fun, interactive, play".
The concept behind FIP Lounge is to provide a laid-back atmosphere where friends can enjoy food while having fun at the same time. Visitors to FIP Lounge can pass the time with board games, interactive objects, trick artworks, a pool table and an electronic darts machine.
Every Saturday and Sunday, FIP Lounge hosts the Coffee And Cakes Buffet between 3:00pm and 6:00pm.
This afternoon feast features various types of sweet and savory treats. This includes cakes, macarons, mousse, sandwiches and scones. The buffet is priced at RM47.00 for an adult and RM24.00 for a child.
The resort has a dedicated pastry team to satisfy the palate of any cake lover. Commence with the Blueberry Cheese Cake for the creamy satisfaction.
Chocolate Orange Cake is also available on the rotating menu. Notice that the chef spares no expense in cake presentation.
Apple Crumble Cake has coarser texture but fruity sensation nevertheless. Raspberries and blueberries serve as toppings.
For fluffier texture, the Chocolate Chiffon Cake is a good bet.
There are also several types of cupcakes on tiered trays. Cupcake size is deliberately made small so that guests can sample more delicacies during the meal.
Peach and strawberry fruit mousse are also available. These treats are served in petite shot glasses.
There is also a wide assortment of bite-size tarts, scones and cookies. Extending this further, there are also strawberries dipped in chocolate fondue.
Originating in France, macarons are gaining popularity in East Asia especially Japan and South Korea. Even Malaysian bakeries are jumping on the bandwagon with this sugary confectionery.
Free-flowing coffee and tea are provided as part of the buffet. Bon appétit!
In the spirit of yuletide festival, Rasa Sayang unveiled a Christmas tree made from conchiglie! The tree stands around 2 meters in height.
The conical "tree" is located just outside Spice Market Café. Don't miss the opportunity to snap a photo of one good-looking fellow... alongside you. Get the joke?
