i can’t think of a better way to spend your Saturday than having afternoon tea with your bff at a cosy yet classic-ly elegant environment, reveling in tête-à-tête over English tea and delicate scones and sweets.we were seated at a pretty table by the window. i secretly yay in my heart for natural sunlight. and you should yay too, for beautiful pictures you’re about to relish ( i kinda went overboard with the photo taking). that’s my bff, LeeChing, she’s no stranger on AntzWorLd as she appears quite often here. by the way, if you don’t remember, we had a fabulous staycation at this reputable hotel last month. read here to refresh your memory.we reminded each other, today is a day we have to act all tai-tai, walk like a tai-tai, smile like a tai-tai, nibble like a tai-tai and of course whisper like a tai-tai too. LeeChing was talking berry softly on the phone to the point that her boyfie on the other end can hardly hear her Afternoon Tea at 1885, Eastern & Oriental Hotel is priced at RM 56++ per person and you’ll need to come in at least a pair. each of you can choose a pot of tea of your choice and the food portion served for two.we were given a menu to choose our preferred tea. the choices although not really extensive, was varied and pretty interesting!LC's Earl Greyan extravagantly tea with the intensive aroma Japanese wild berries.while i had Morgentau.a tea creation with delicate fruity flavours and petals.Earl Grey was too overpowering for my liking, i like mine more. i have always loved fruity scent, in my tea and perfumes.dollops of dense yet light clotted cream.raisin and plain sconesi know i should start off with savory sandwiches first. but i couldn’t resist warm scones. i couldn’t resist the clotted cream more actually. so i had to have the scones first, sorry sandwiches.scones were well made, not dry or doughy..same goes with the homemade jam. not sickly sweet as those commercial ones. even a non-jam person like LC spread it thickly on her scones.dainty array of finger sandwiches served in a two-tiered tray.the top consists of-Soft Cheddar Cheese, Ripe Tomato on Whole Wheat Bread-Lemon Chicken Salad, Crunchy Celery in Puff Pastrywhile the bottom tray had-Roasted Beef, Grain Mustard Mayonnaise on Village Bread-Cucumber with Cream Cheese Dill on White Brown Bread-Chicken Breast, Horseradish Cream on White Bread-Scottish Smoked Salmon, Lemmon Butter on Poppy Seed Bread-Egg Mayonnaise Voulevant, Chopped Shallots, Alfafa Sproutswell, there’s really many breads for an afternoon tea. O.owe had a hard time gulping them down nibbling them.. nonetheless there’s few that i really like and wish i could have second serving of.lastly, a vintage plate laden with sweet treats inclusive cheesecake, macaron, chocolate cake, white chocolate ball, meringue with coated strawberry.it’s hard to say which morsel i liked the most, as every one is tasty. even a non-dessert person like LC (she’s quite picky also heh) enjoyed all of them, especially the chocolate cake, it’s really chocolatey to her liking!don’t be intimidated by the environment, it’s actually quite relaxing in there. at night, the setting is transformed into somewhat poshy for fine dining.with such elegant setting and delightful afternoon tea offering, there’s no wonder why 1885 is awarded Malaysia’s Best Restaurants consecutively two years (2011 & 2012).so to conclude, i would recommend Afternoon Tea at 1885, Eastern & Oriental Hotel if you’re looking somewhere nice to catch up with your girlfriends over dainty food in a light and relaxing environment. do remember, reservation is highly recommended! continue reading

When the clock's shows 2pm, I only can think of delicious afternoon tea is waiting for me to taste. This is my 1st time enter into 1885 which is one of the famous place at the ground floor of E&O hotel. It was lucky that there was a place for us to dine in as I didn't reserve in advance. The service is good and where else you can find such a good location to enjoy your tea. Let's see what we have here. The selection of pastries is match by the kitchen and its changed frequently, so you won't get bored. I like this, the looks is so sweet but actually its not. My favorite tea. Scone, served with blackcurrant jam & cream continue reading

Named for the year that the E&O Hotel was established, 1885 offers classical yet contemporary cuisine in an elegant environment in the finest traditions of colonial fine dining. The selection of inventive fusion dishes from our accomplished chefs, accompanied by a superb selection of wines, marks 1885 as the perfect choice for an enjoyable dining experience.Traditional English Afternoon Tea is also served in this elegant setting. Candlelit tables, starched linens, silver service, and attentive staff create a magical experience.’During our stay in the hotel, we had our romantic English Afternoon Tea with the cutie pie together with us. Elegant setting with the beautiful looking of the French windows,overlooking the Straits of Malacca is indeed a great view to go with the delicious petite English Afternoon Tea.It is being served together with the variety choices of tea as well. I had the Earl Grey tea which is simply refreshing. An extravaganly blended tea with the intensive aroma of the Japanese Wild Cherries is amazingly well made.Overall, the dining here was superb with the great choice of the afternoon tea. Relaxing place with good continue reading

This entry wraps up our Penang series. A highlight was dinner at one of the island's most elegant settings, with impeccable food and well-honed service. Bread with three flavours of butter (salted, pesto and sundried tomato). Amuse bouche of beef wantan. Preparing the Caesar Salad, tossed with garlic, olive oil, anchovies, mustard, topped with parmesan and croutons, served with smoked salmon. Spinach & Crab Cannelloni with seafood chili con carne, asparagus & soft shell crab. An intriguing combo of tastes and textures. The cannelloni was packed with fleshy chunks of crab meat, which had a creaminess that was nicely balanced by the tangy seafood. Smoked lamb tortellini tossed with virgin olive oil, garlic, roasted pumpkin, pine nuts, young edamame beans & shimeji mushrooms, finished with crumbled Roquefort cheese. Delicious, but this needs to be shared because it's waaay too rich. Preparing the Peach Melba, flambeed with Cognac by the table. Terramater Paso Del Sol Merlot (Chile). Saint Clair Fire Road Chardonnay 2007 (New Zealand). continue reading
