Straits Café @ Rendezvous

Started last Sunday with church.

Wore my favorite lace skirt. :)

This Diva necklace was a gift from a very sweet friend

After church, we had to skip lunch as we had a high tea date at the Straits Café @ Rendezvous!

Old-school tiles at the hotel lobby. My outfit blended in with the design don’t you think? ;)

We had heard so much about the food here.

The first thing I took was the award winning Laksa.

It tasted really smooth and delish!

There was a popiah and kueh pie tee making station.

By the way, did you know that a standard roll of popiah costs you 188 calories?

Jensen looked like he wants to eat with us too. Next year baby!

If you like seafood…

Not sure what are these but they look like snails!

Salmon sashimi was fresh enough

I like everything in this salad – green mango, onions, chilli and chicken feet!

They serve only mutton satay here. My cousin said mutton satay is generally more expensive than the other meat satays. I didn’t know that!

A Chinese roti prata man??

IMG_1453

My roti prata drenched in chicken curry.

The roti prata here was crispy and fluffy like pastry. I enjoyed it but regretted drenching my prata in curry. Should have taken the curry separately in a bowl for dipping so that I could enjoy the crispiness of the prata.

A row of dim sum such as soon kueh, koo chye kueh, siew mai, bao, chwee kueh etc

Dessert time!

I don’t really fancy chocolate fondue but it seems like a must-have in every buffet now.

Green tea biscuits atop green tea pudding

There was the usual ice-cream and cakes available but the bestest of the best dessert has got to be….

DURIAN PUDDING!

It was sweet and creamy! Such a delight!

And what a way to end your high-tea with a cup of teh terik available at this cart.

We enjoyed the food at this buffet. There is senior citizen’s discount available here.

This place is definitely worth checking out.
