During the times when we are running out of ideas when it comes to digging the right place for an afternoon session catchups, the brother came up with the perfect thought of High Tea.
Hartamas he whispered. His buy this round. Whee....
Nope. Not San Terri Cottage Cafe this round. We adjourned to something more English……….
To be precise, an English Tea Room……
I spotted Victoria Rossa almost immediately as its cute-sy decor and flowery walls attracted me. Although it is like kiosk-based (not in a shop), it's arrangement extended neatly. It impressed me when they stated that they serve a choice of 33 home-blend single estate whole leaf teas. From fresh homemade scones, sandwiches and my favorite buttercakes! Most importantly, they offer an array of English teas like the Edwardian’s and Victoria Rossa's collection to quench your thirst and crave for your favorite blend for the day.
Old English Tea Set - RM29.90
- With a choice of English Green Lemon Meringue or Orange Meringue
- English Tea Toast Almond Cookies
- Old-Fashioned English Scone
- Old English Butter Cake
- Victorian Tea Sandwich
- A Pot of single serving English Tea
Although it's a serving for one person, the tea is enough for 2 and you could have other side orders if you desire……
We had 2 tea sets with additional order of another pot at RM9.90
It's cute to look at when their tea-pots have matching flowery 'clothes' for them.
Another set of matching cutleries
Choices of Scones
*all scones are served with butter and homemade strawberry jam
*Optional addition of: English Devonshire Clotted Cream at RM1 (I think scones and clotted cream are inseparable!)
Raisin, Chocolate or Plain ones - RM6 each
Apricot, Almond, Walnut, Cheese or Cranberry - RM7 each
Cranberry Cheese, Nutty Cheese, Victorian Nuts, Old English mixed fruits or Old English Nutty fruity - RM8 each
Old English Cottage Pie - RM15.90
Minced beef/ chicken baked with mashed potatoes and green pea
Old English Toad-in-the-hole - RM9.90 (4 pcs)
I personally still prefer having this dish at J&R ;) Texture was kinda dry...
Feeling to have one of those English style cutleries, tea pots and flowery cups? They are selling these merchandises as well as their English teas which came in good packaging.
A perfect spot for an afternoon session with friends and family accompanied by the buttery scones and aromatic English blend. However, it would be better of they are better allocated as patrons would have more privacy.
