Piggin' Out: Afternoon tea @ Jim Thompson Tea Room

Place: Jim Thompson Tea Room @ the Cameron Highlands Resort

Similar to all the other YTL hotels, when you book to stay at the Cameron Highlands Resort Hotel, you are most likely given an all-meals inclusive package. We had a 3 days 2 nights package with 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 dinners costing RM899++ per person.

BUT, since we had intentions to eat at other restaurants in CH, we asked if we could convert one of the lunches into the Jim Thompson Afternoon Tea set. On that fine Sunday, we had a full breakfast buffet spread, then lunch again was a buffet spread (which was really really good and I'm going to post pictures of the bread and butter pudding which was super yummy!!), then afternoon tea and later steamboat dinner at Brinchang. And this is all after Saturday's feasting (as noted in my previous posts).

*pats tummy happily*

So anyway, TA-DAHHhh..... the afternoon tea set for 2. Served with a selection of Cameron Highlands teas. Notice that one scone is already missing from the bottom tray. Ma attacked the scone before I could take the picture!! And Rommel attacked the other scone from our set as well.

The only complaint I have is that again, they did not use clotted cream like how they described in their menu, for which we were understandably upset with them. It was just normal whipped cream. How can this compare to clotted cream?? But, our family cardiologist will be slightly relieved that we have not been scoffing down clotted cream.

The sandwiches were really yummy, especially the smoked salmon ones.
The cakes - so-so. I didnt even try any of them actually. Was too stuffed and so we just packed them up for dessert later in the night.
