I love December!
Why? A month of celebrations…
Christmas, weddings, birthdays, birthdays & more birthdays!
Birthdays. It’s good to have close birthday dates as celebrating for each other is a valid
excuse reason for self-pampering.
Cheers to the December babies!
Venue for 3 December-ians?
T Forty Two has been in our afternoon tea list for quite sometime and never did we know that they’ve revamped their menu & turned it into a modest setting: Bistro42.
A branched out of T Forty Two which is also owned by the B.I.G group, Bistro42 is one of the bright ideas apart from outlets like Ben’s, Tate, Plan B & so forth that focused more on modern bistro fare.
I love how we were greeted. Friendly staffs that ushered us into the garden space outside the main restaurant, adorned with garden umbrellas and cushions that augmented the outdoor-like atmosphere in a shopping mall. There’s an are with lilac & pink sofas and details that I love, accompanied with a grand piano in the middle which adds the graceful touch overall. The inner dining hall has a different style: intimate ambiance with wood panels, white marble tables and bright yellow chairs to match their bright ideas.
My girlfriend (Vyen) and I prefer the garden space as we love leisure meals/ afternoon tea.
Bistro 42 serves beverages from premium tea blends to cocktails, cakes and other niceties to Black Angus prime rib.
Premium & substantial fares.
To indulge in a decadent afternoon tea, we decided to go for their High T42 afternoon tea set.
Served from 3-6pm daily
RM59.90 for two to share
*NOTE: Could be shared by 3 pax (which we did 🙂
Accompanied by your choice of tea or coffee
Be smitten with their pretty tea sets of different designs; from traditional English tea cups to oriental tea pots 🙂
With a wide array of premium blend selection, we went for something calming……
Relax – a blend of chamomile & hibiscus with a touch of juniper & lemon balm is perfect for mind calming.
Chris just have to have his daily caffeine fix
Had an additional pot to share. Need to quench more thirst as the talking went on non-stop 😛
Gorgeous Geisha – RM9.90 per pot
A delicious blend of green tea & sweet, ripe strawberries
We were like the tea connoisseurs who sat there leisurely enjoying our mid-day break, indulging in a beautifully arranged 3-tier English afternoon tea set with freshly baked savouries and sweets:
Cucumber & cream cheese finger sandwiches
Egg-mayo & ranch chicken sandwiches on baby cuboid loaves
House-cured salmon open sandwich with dill mascarpone on danish toast
Mini quiche lorraines
*All these delis/ savouries exceeded our expectations. Right choices of fresh bakes placed on the lower tier.
Freshly baked scones with clotted cream & berry preserves
Baby raspberry jam doughnuts, Macarons, Madeleines & Marshmallows
*We still prefer Smokehouse’s scones 🙂
Also choose any one dessert from their display!
We chose Crepe Suzette Cake
Layers of crepe & zesty orange cream served a la mode
Great zesty flavours but lack of layered texture. We find the crepe a little thick. Still has Nadeje’s mille crepe topping our crepe list personally.
