Have you ever seen the ‘twin’ of Singapore’s Raffles Hotel? Yes, it’s situated in George Town, Penang and it’s called Eastern & Oriental Hotel.
And the reason why we are here, was to enjoy the high tea at 1885… Yes after the hotel buffet breakfast and after a Char Kway Teow lunch!!! ABSOLUTELY SINFUL!
They have a pianist… and of course you can’t help but notice the food nearby….
The high tea set costs S$22+ and here’s our set…
We each had a teapot of aromatic tea of our choice and a tiered plate full of scones and sandwiches as well as chocolates, fruit tarts, fruit cakes and super delicious creamy cheese cakes! The serving you see above was shared by 3-4 pax.
How do we stomach so much food at tea??!
And after food, some of us went outside the hotel to take pictures…
This is really one hotel with a colonial feel!
