Review: The Teapot Cafe
Thanks to Boo_licious on her recent posting of The Teapot Cafe that reminded me of posting this up. I still have a lot of back log!!!
The interior of the cafe is basically filled with teapots and has a very English like decor. It's pretty dim inside hence my photos came out rather bad.
Hubby had wanted to order the roast chicken but they had ran out of it. Surprisingly, their ever popular Chicken Kiev (RM19.50) was available!!! Chicken Kiev consists of chicken breast meat filled with garlic butter, rolled in breadcrumbs and deep fried. Came with thick fries and a side salad. I loved the way the garlic butter filling roll out of the meat gently as I cut thru the meat. The filling gave the meat a nice garlicky taste.
Since we have ordered a Devonshire Tea set to be shared, I've asked for a slice of Mushroom Quiche (RM4.90). This quiche is very lacklustre, I think my quiche tasted much better haha. I suspect it's the usage of canned mushroom that marred the texture and the custard is not rich enough. Luckily the pastry came thin else I would have trouble finishing up the stuff we have ordered.
We ordered a Devonshire Tea (RM20.50) set since it consists set of 2 scones served with strawberry jam and clotted cream; dainty tuna sandwich (for boiboi); a slice of cake which we picked tiramisu; and a pot of tea which can be shared by two person.
The 2 scones (RM3.50) worth all the money as they were served with real clotted cream. The scone does not crumble easily and was great with the clotted cream and strawberry jam.
The Tiramisu is so so only in my opinion. The sponge cake is way too soggy. I guess too much coffee (tasted instant) was poured over the sponge. My boiboi ate half of this tiramisu after whacking 2 quarters of sandwich and one scone!!!! No wonder it's getting tougher to carry him these days.
Chocolate Eclair (RM1.40) that greedy hubby ordered which we can't finish and opted to take away. The thick chocolate compliments the pastry pretty well and we loved it chilled.
On another occasion we packed 2 pieces each of eclairs and cream puffs. Errr of course the cream puffs can't match those from Beard Papa haha but enough to satisfy our cravings of something sweet.
