Afternoon Tea Mantou Sliders & Evening Posh Nosh @ The Gastro Project

The Gastro Project has recently introduced two intriguing promotions: An Afternoon Tea menu that features creative sliders constructed with mantou buns & fun fillings, as well as Posh Nosh three-course dinnertime sets that change every fortnight, carefully crafted by the restaurant's new chef Yuz with an attention to complex details.

The Afternoon Tea selection is available six days a week, Tuesdays through Sundays, 2:30pm-5:30pm. It's a reasonably priced affair - RM16.90++ for two mantous & complimentary serving of coffee or tea - sufficient for a satisfactory snack.

Cute creations - customers can choose from a diverse & distinctive selection of four savoury mantous and two sweet ones, all thickly stuffed, many showcasing a strong sense of contemporary, cross-border trendiness: Steamed mantou with fried chicken, red radish slaw & sriracha aioli; steamed mantou with lamb kofta, tzatziki sauce & fried mint; grilled mantou with beef patty, tomato salsa & fried quail egg; fried mantou with tempura fish, shaved cucumber & Oriental chilli sauce; fried mantou with custard, strawberries & a side of sweet condensed milk; & fried mantou with vanilla ice cream & shaved chocolate.

Seguing into the evening, The Gastro Project's new Posh Nosh menu runs Thursdays through Sundays from 7pm, offering the outlet's interesting interpretations of gourmet fare. For the first two weeks of October, the well-executed set starts with crisp wild mushroom arancini with garlic puree & truffle oil, followed by a fish lover's main course of pan-fried barramundi with tomato salsa & coriander mariniere sauce, concluding with a luscious panna cotta with fresh Thai basil & coconut cream.

The Posh Nosh menu costs RM98 nett - October's final two weeks will feature a perky starter of chilled tomato consomme with herbs & olive oil, a meaty main of Black Angus sirloin with charred onion, leek etuvee & wild mushroom jus, & a textured dessert of caramelised banana with chocolate crumbs, toffee sauce & vanilla ice cream. Thanks to TGP for having us here.

  1. I love tea, Sean, as you know, so I perked right up here! :) Nice looking ambiance and the fare looks oh, so rich! :)

    1. Linda: just realised that we forgot to order tea here ... we only had coffee, heh :D

  2. Thought of bringing Jenn here for the Posh Nosh dinner until I spotted "black angus sirloin" in the menu :(

    1. Leo: ooo, i think if you order in advance, you could enquire if they'd be able to offer a beef substitute :)

  3. Love the look of the sliders - variety is the spice of life, normally they would just stuff the mantou with braised pork belly.

    1. Suituapui: yeah, i admired how they put a lot of thought into their sliders :)

  4. Oh, the dinner sets look delicious :)

    1. Contact.ewew: i like the look of the arancini, the barramundi, the panna cotta and the sirloin :D
