Afternoon tea @ Ritz Carlton Hotel!

5 Oct

Last week I went to afternoon tea at Ritz Carlton Hotel with my friend! I’ve always dreamed of going to afternoon tea since I moved to Malaysia, so when my friend asked me to go there, we started looking for some places and found this Ritz Carlton Hotel English Afternoon Tea.

Classical Lobby. We received warm greetings from the staffs.

The tea they serve is from Germany called Ronnefeldt, and they had over 40 kinds of teas; from black tea to herbal tea, flavored tea and green tea. After thinking for a few minutes, I chose Darjeeling tea (Jungpana) and my friend chose Earl Grey Tea.

This is the food trey. It came in three-tiered plates!

<First plate>

Plain scone, Apple scone, Mushroom & potato pie, Kiche

<Second Plate>

Cucumber sandwich, Salmon & creemcheese bread, Ham & cheese bread

<Third Plate>

Fruits tarte, Choux, Chocolate cake, Mango cheesecake, Cassis macaron

Since I have been making many macarons, the most curious pastry among all was this macaron. Just like its vivid color, the taste was thick and good. The crust was a bit thinner and crispier than the ones I make. I also liked their apple scone. They were all quite good.

As for Hanae, she seemed to be excited and started raising her voice as soon as we sat down. She must have felt that the place was quiet and somewhat different from where we usually go^^;. I was a bit nervous because there were some customers in other tables… but they seemed to be ok. Also, the staff was very nice and they tried to play with Hanae and gave her some buscuits. One thing I found about Malaysians is that they are so nice to babies. Wherever I take Hanae, she always gets treated well and be played by people around her. This is something you might not get in Japan (as my japanese friends agree to me, people tend to be indifferent to other people’s babies in Japan), so I feel happy about this.

Anyway, as soon as Hanae got the buscuits she grabbed them with both hands! She munched into them and made this ‘wow’ look and got even more excited. She didn’t want to let them go. I was a bit worried because the cookies looked like shortbread and chocolate chip cookies with lots of sugar, but since I was having a good time I let her enjoy herself  too…

We all enjoyed having tea there. Good ambience, good food and heart warming service.

If I have a chance, I’d like to go back there again!
