Best High Teas in PJ

Written by Updated ago

The very “British” ritual of afternoon tea or high tea (as we call it here) owes its origins to a Duchess of Bedford in the UK named Anna. Back in the 1800s, Duchess Anna lived in an era whereby two main meals were commonplace with absolutely NO snacks in between the meals and she, like so many of us girls nowadays, has a huge appetite and ended up being irritated by her growling tummy waiting for dinner everyday. So what did Anna do? Well, she did what all of us will do, allocated a special time to take tea and snack each afternoon. This practice was soon adopted by Anna and her circle of friends. Ever since then, the high tea culture has not stopped growing and is even a regular mealtime in a number of restaurants in Malaysia. Most are pretty much indistinguishable but quite a few offer something unique. Below are some of the Petaling Jaya’s best high teas for those who want to experience something British.

    Peace and tranquillity do not come cheap, but that isn't to say it's totally unavailable. Entering The Royale Chulan in Damansara certainly does bring in a level of peace that is rare. Not because of how the place is, but rather, the crowd and service as a whole. If you're looking for something of that sort, where whispering is more common, The Royale Chulan is definitely the place to be. The high-tea set here is pretty affordable, while the selections of quiche, scones, cakes and sandwiches are nothing but delightful. If you’re all about bread and pastries, check out the Bakery Shop.

    Cinnamon Coffee House has been branded “the best buffet in town” by some eager friends of my parents and there is probably some truth in that. A good high tea needs a blend of light and moderately heavy meal. They surely serve a great high tea fiesta. The place is super dreamy, with hanging circular glass balls from the ceiling and dainty little cakes served on plates. Some bite-sized appetisers are laid out in a very creative manner, singly on spoons and placed through a glass stand. My favourite was the smoked salmon topped with capers. They even have plenty of drinks to cater to your tummy’s content. 

    Tips

    They have a special counter for Japanese food. So don’t forget to find your way there.

    Things to expect

    A bloated stomach at the end of your buffet.

    Best with

    Their tiny chocolate cakes.

    The Lobby Lounge @ Sunway Resort Hotel & SpaPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa was really popular back then due to Sunway Lagoon, as well as the fact that it's one of the best resort to stay in the city. Now, it's a fairly comfortable hub for those who are looking for a bite or two. Housing a number of restaurants within, choices to bloat your tummy up is never near short. Their high tea sets are somewhat similar to what you'll find outside, with the basic scones, sandwiches and range of teas. But what sets them apart is each component served is prepared with close scrutiny for ideal taste and texture. Also adding in the nice ambience, view and pleasant service, this place is worth visiting.  

    Tips

    Available only from 2.30pm to 6pm everyday.

    Things to expect

    A classy, quiet and cosy place.

    Best with

    Tea.
