People crap on all the time about how you should 'do high tea at The Peninsula', but really that is more about the name these days than anything else.
I really wanted to go to The Langham (8 Peking Road, Tsimshatsui). Oh man, am I so glad that we did!
We sauntered into The Langham - after our pedicures and massages around the corner.
"Tiffin Tea" is served in the Palm Court between 3-5pm daily. Currently it costs $298HK (about $35AUD) for 2 people. Plus 10% service charge of course ~rolls eyes~ I have a beef over service charges, but that is for another post.
nb: There are a couple of other options ie "Tiffin for Prince and Princess" which are $88HKD per person, and a selection of cocktails and mocktails to suit. Damn I love Bellinis!
Anyway, We had a selection of "The Sleeping Beauty" or "Beauty and the Beast". Sleeping beauty was all whites and blondes so I had to go for beauty and the Beast as that was all dark chocolates, lol.
|Here we have Manjari chocolate dome, Black forest crystal and vanilla bavarois cream with crispy brownie.|
|Dark and white chocolate Mille feuille (my favourite from the selection), Chocolate banana baked tart, Chocolate cupcake with valrhone frosting and gold leaf, Praline rice crispy.|
|And just a general view of "Palm Court"|
All in all, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a visit to The Langham for high tea. The Hotel itself houses a few michelin star restaurants - which I could not convince any of my travel companions to go to :(
"Tiffin Tea" was just divine. It was exquisite, well presented, good service, nice ambience and, best of all, GREAT value for money!
