♨ Ben's General Food Store

A simple and last minute plan brunch in 
Ben's General Food Store @ Publika

the ambience was good
typical B-group feel
nice =)

I always order Pizza from Ben's 
but this time I tried their French Toast
which, I would highly recommend to all of you!
yummylicious =)

presenting my
Frenchie Toasties
with Sliced Pear, Butterscotch Sauce, Mascarpone & Toasted Hazelnuts (RM22)

remember how I commented on Acme Bar and Coffee's cooked pear slices?
I said they tasted weird
but I was having a strong craving for butterscotch that morning
and the only menu with butterscotch is this one, with the pear
so, I decided to give it a try

and the pear tasted better here =)

 their French Toast is not the typical Malaysian french toast 
(you know, our french toast is like, bread dipped in eggs and fry on the pan)
this french toast is very crunchy outside and soft inside
more like a croissant 
but in a square form =)

and both my sisters ordered this to share
definitely enough for two =)

Half Spit Roasted Chicken
with 1 side salad and mashed potato (RM30)

the amount of mashed potato will probably fill my tummy already
haha! quite a lot you know..

general comment from them : good =)

♨ Lobby Lounge, Shangri-La KL Afternoon High Tea

High tea hunt with my friend again
our To-Go-List has becoming lesser and lesser
but I'm still hoping there will be more high tea places for us to enjoy =)

Presenting Lobby Lounge, Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur Tea Time
the tea area was rather grand, quiet, nice and soothing
If you can, request for a table beside the ceiling-to-floor glass window
overlooking a lush water garden outside
amazing much =)

so basically they have two sets of menu to choose:

one is Classic Afternoon Tea
a mixture of sandwiches
and classic delicatessen such as choc cake, cupcakes and berries tartlet
and of course, either a cup of coffee or tea

and another is Malaysian Afternoon Tea
where they have a variety of finger food (chicken murtabak, keropok lekor etc)
Dried cakes (banana fritters, apam balik, pandan layered cake)
and some Malaysian delicatessen such as kuih lapis, cendol jelly etc
and of course, either coffee or tea

both charged at the price of RM55 per pax
i find it pretty cheap for Shangri-La Hotel setting to be honest =)

Just a candid shot =)
 We did the classic afternoon tea for one pax
luckily we ordered one pax
cuz by the time we finish our food, we were really struggling already
too full!

high tea was good
but i find the scones a bit brittle (or dry)
others was beyond average =)

quick shot of me and my gorgeous friend Raja
typical to-do-stuff before eating yeh =P

Just a short one for this!
maybe you guys can try the Malaysian Afternoon Tea and tell me how is it
I'll probably go back again for the Malaysian one! =D
