Victoria Rossa English Tea Room @ Hartamas Shopping Centre

Sorry for the long silence! Haven't really been trying products/services, nor has there been an outstanding one to recommend ... so there.

My friend took us to her friend's "shop" in Hartamas Shopping Centre for a high tea. I didn't expect much - even though the place looked nice. Sometimes shops are so nicely decorated but the food is icky and yucky.

This place is called Victoria Rossa - situated on the first floor of Hartamas Shopping Centre. To be exact, here's the address: Unit K20, Level 1, Hartamas Shopping Centre (right across from Pineapple Computer store). Everything is dolled up in Victorian splendor - very elegant and pretty.

The menu - so shweet :)

My friend ordered one of those tea sets - that came with cucumber sandwiches, butter cake and scones, accompanied with tea - very nice tea!

Cranberry and raisin scones - fresh, light and buttery

Nice tea pots and tea cosys - the experience is building up very quickly!

Hmm, I thought I had a photo of the butter cake which I must say was absolutely divine! As I said, my expectation of this "tea room" wasn't very high. BUT, my my, I was pleasantly surprised ... the food was of really really good quality! I'll say it again, the butter cake was beautiful! A MUST HAVE when you go there.

The owner of the place came to sit with us and brought more food for us to sample. Wow, we were so blessed. We listened to him talk passionately about his tea room. You can tell he really takes pride in what he does. He doesn't believe in using substandard ingredients so the butter cake (and all the other pastries) are made with only pure butter. No shortening, no margarine, nothing with trans-fat.

Will definitely go back again for the great experience. Hmm, or maybe not ... just for the sake that I can't afford the calories :( But ... if you're looking for a good English high tea - Victoria Rossa is the place to go!
