High T42 @ Bistro 42

It wasn't a random day for high tea. After visiting Bistro 42in Bangsar Village II for a morning coffee session for Alexander Shorokhoff watch launch (Read more here), I told myself that a return is a must and in particular their famed High T42.

Some weeks back during one of our many public holidays in January, I swung by to Bistro 42 to experience its High T42. Its available daily between 3pm to 6pm at RM59.80 for two to share accompanied by our choice of tea or coffee. Quite a good deal!

We quickly ordered since we knew what we wanted. However, service seemed slow. We were not the only table that had asked what happened to our food or drinks. Imagine waiting almost 15 minutes for your tea:P 
these simple pretty floral arrangements are quite calming despite the wait
Tea finally arrives. I opted for my all time fave Lemongrass and Ginger which has a zesty lemongrass  touch and a subtle ginger taste to it. Refreshing and it kinda works out the appetite quite a bit. My partner in crime opts for the Relax blend of chamomile and hibiscus with a touch of juniper and lemon balm. Both teas were great on its own and does not require the honey served on the side. However if you like it sweet, no harm adding honey.

Food arrives. 3 tiers and this is what we get:
Savouries
• Cucumber and cream cheese finger sandwiches
• Egg mayo and ranch chicken sandwiches on baby cuboid loaves
• House cured salmon open sandwich with dill mascarpone on danish toast (awesome danish toast that were rich and fluffy)
• Mini quiche lorraines

Sweets
• Freshly baked scones with clotted cream and berry preserves (I wouldn't mind coming back for the scones which were delightfully rich)
• Baby Raspberry jam doughnuts, macarons, madeleines and marshmallows (the raspberry jam doughnuts are sweet with the sugar and jam but its quite a delightful sweetness that makes you want more especially when taken with tea)
And a dessert from display. We were both lazy to move to check the desserts and left it to the waitress to decide for us. Hmmm...I didn't quite like what she chose but I can't blame her as we were both lazy to take the walk. It was awfully sweet and tasted flat. A tip is also to ask them to serve you the dessert from display after your meal if you like the cakes cold as they should be. 
Watch the bill when you pay as we were given a bill of RM90+ for the High T42. What happened? Someone keyed in 2 pots of tea when we were entitled to our choice tea or coffee. Everything was duly rectified when we pointed out but this questions the level of service...perhaps it was a public holiday syndrome? Not too sure but I'll see what happens in our next scheduled visit that we have planned.
