Been here a couple of times now, it’s pretty consistent in terms of quality and service. I’d recommend mamasita for a girls night out or dinner date. Wouldn’t recommend for a big group as you’ll be waiting for a table … Continue reading

To be honest, what attracted us to visit Tall Timber was the Entertainment Voucher of 25% off… (awesome deal!) It was a double date to set the scene and ended being a pretty good experience. Parking went alright. For first timers, … Continue reading
Somewhere high, something fancy and someplace beautiful… … is what I’d describe No 35 at Sofitel. We celebrated our 8th Anniversary viewing at the top of Melbourne CBD. It was beautiful, clear skies and relaxing overlooking the city movements on … Continue reading

Whenever I visit Hong Kong I would always try high tea at a 4-5 star hotel. This is because after currency conversion it turns out reasonably cheaper than if it was at Australia!
This time I checked into the lobby at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, which is a 5 star hotel. The hotel was within 4 minutes walking distance from Central mtr station. It’s definitely convenient for those who work at Central which is the Central Business District of Hong Kong with luxury branded retailers surrounding many well serviced hotels business and iconic buildings. The lobby specialised in delicacy and desserts. And it certainly delivered!
We initially ordered tea set for 2 persons, as advised by my aunt who tried Mandarin Oriental before. There was 3 of us but apparently 2 persons tea set was enough to fill us all,
After seeing the set it just didn’t seem to sparingly feed the 3 of us. Additionally, one of my friends didnt have breakfast/lunch, So we ordered a one person tea set also. And… it was the wrong decision!
By the end of the day we left one dessert on the tier. It was truely too much to fill 2 males and 1 female!
Lesson learnt: listen to my aunt and order 2 persons tea set when 3 people are dining.
I ordered a Mocha as my drink that came with the Tea set, but it wasn’t the best Mocha.. there wasn’t enough chocolate to kick off the taste and it tasted like a really light Latte unfortunately.
Jam for the Scones was wonderful.. it was made with rose petals and it was perfect with the scones. It was also a good idea to spread both jam and the Devon Clotted Cream on the Plain scones.
Overall, I’d say the sandwiches lacked a bit of creativity compared with Langham hotel’s high tea. But the dessert was spot on! Sensational flavours from sweet and sour but not too sweet and bearable sourness!
The savoury pastries also kicked it off – Quiche [Bacon, Onion, Cheese] & Sausage Roll, Puff Pastry! Warm to the right edible temperature crispy on the outer and well flavoured in the inner.
My favourite would be the chocolate and waffle base cake – millefruille or it could be the ‘Hazelnut Cassis Mousse Cake’. The best dessert with the right size for tasting.
