Hi -Tea at Heritage Hotel


Recently, I met up with  my ex-colleagues for Hi-Tea at Heritage Hotel and we did enjoy ourselves tremendously, catching up on old and present times.  At 19 rgt nett the price was reasonable but @ 15 rgt nett for seniors age 50 and above, it was more affordable!  We were there early, so I had a gala time snapping up pictures of the spread of food before people were able to dig into them!





Start the tour from this end ....... a variety of salad with mayo and thousand island sauce.


Ahhh ...... rojak, one of my favourite salad, but sadly the sauce lacked ground peanuts and belacan powder, so there was not much oomph!


The tuna sandwhiches were very fresh and soft ....... we were early birds!


Condiments for the big pot of white porridge next to them ...... I only sampled a small portion, not too bad.


Nasi lemak .... the rice wasn't very lemak, good for you if you're watching your cholesterol level, the sambal was spicy but delicious with the fried anchovies, peanuts, hard boiled eggs and cucumber.


Mini hot dog buns and crispy curry puffs.  I had some puffs, they were tasty.



Deep fried chicken wings and don't really know the name of the other but it was some potato paste, a bit sweet with some savoury filling .......... something different, only seen and tasted for the first time....not too bad really.


Mini pizza and pita bread with mayo and some veggie filling.


Kampong fried  rice and fried kway teow .... both of these were tasty.


At the end of this spread was dessert ..... fresh cut fruits, papaya, pineapple and water melon, jelly, creme caramel, chocolate cake, pumpkin cake and some Malay kuih muih.


Now  you step out to the entrance of this cafe for  ......... Ice kacang.  See the ice shaver on the right and on the left, cendol, cream corn, kidney beans, some red or coconut syrup and coconut milk which made up the concoction of M'sia's Ice Kacang!  I was a bit disappointed as the coconut milk wasn't fresh coconut milk, they used 'instant coconut powder'...... a bit surprised as fresh coconut milk is readily available.


Mmm ....... roti jala, freshly made in front of you.  Chicken curry to go with the roti jala.


Cucur udang/deep fried shrimp fritters and banana fritters in the background and on the left picture is what we call, 'dip-dip'.   You dip those sticks of fish balls, fish paste, cuttle fish and shrimps in a pot of boiling water, once cooked, take out and add in some sauce to go with it.



Chilly and sweet sauce for the 'dip-dip' in the background, and here's curry mee/ yellow Hokkien noodles ...... with fish balls, fish paste, shrimps, bean curd puff, fried shallots, bean sprouts and a pot of chilly red piping hot curry.

This is the first time that I can snap pictures of the full buffet spread without much interference and hope you have enjoyed it as much as I did.

  4. It has been years since I last had high-tea. We used to go for in on Saturday with a bunch of friends. I think high-tea is an asian thing. I don't think any hotel here in the US serve high tea.

  7. Dear Friends
    Think it's in Ipoh here that you can get this bargain, over in KL and Penang it's not so cheap. Both in KL and Penang they also offer discounts to seniors.

  11. KL and Penang hotels offer better food even though their pricing is slightly higher. For me I prefer buffets in KL and Penang :))

Chocolate chip banana bread ~ 香蕉巧克力蛋糕

This is an easy peasy recipe where no mixer is required.  Method is more or less like making muffins.  The texture of this banana loaf is soft, moist and there is a perfect blend between the aromatic bananas and chocolate chips.

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
