Traditional English Afternoon Tea for Two @ Ben's, Pavilion KLMonday, December 12, 2011
I have heard a lot of good reviews about Ben's and decided to give it a try when I looking for a restaurant at Pavilion on one random Sunday. Ben's is another bright idea by BIG.
The drinks MENU.
I have actually "scan through" the menu displayed at the entrance and decided to have my breakfast + lunch + dinner there.
Ben's have a cosy and comfortable environment which gives me a homely feel. Every decoration and furniture has been nicely chosen and have its own personality. The colours are warm, cheerful and mainly white.
Walked all the way into the Ben's and you will found this little piece of heaven. It is an open air dining area with no air-conditioner is provided, only fans. It's supposedly a smoking zone. However....
We picked our seat at this area because from here, you can actually enjoy the KL city view. It's evening already, so it was quite chilling to sit at here.
A3 double-sided menu with the handwriting font. Everything is so freely here.
Spaghetti Carbonara - RM21.90
Cooked with beef bacon, mushrooms & cream. Taste was good and delight but I would prefer creamier carbonara.
Traditional English Afternoon Tea for Two - RM49.90
I wanted to order ala-carte earlier, but we saw some tables were enjoying the afternoon tea and, since it was 4pm already, so we decided to try out.
As usual, it is a 3-tier afternoon tea set and it can be shared with 2 or 3.
They have assortment of finger sandwiches - Salmon and tuna egg mayo. The tuna egg mayo was my favourite and it taste good! Nothing special about this but if you like egg mayo sandwich or tuna, you will surely like this. For the salmon, it was a generous slice one. The salmon was thick but it wasn't my favourite as I don't really eat raw foods. You might like it.
For the 2nd tier, buttery scones with preserves & clotted cream,homemade cookies, baby quiche or tartlet of the day. Blueberry tart was the tartlet of the day. Basically, everything was good.
For the top tier - passionfruit marshmallows, chocolate truffles and choice of any one cake on display.
I choose mango tart cake. Unfortunately, it wasn't taste good and suite my taste :( Maybe I should choose tiramisu instead.
Cappuccino - No sugar was added in my cup of coffee, yet it still taste a little bit sweet.
Both of the drink was included in the afternoon tea set.

Christmas is around the corner and Pavilion has been decorated with lovely Christmas decoration starting from November. Pavilion has never fails to surprise me but I still prefer Christmas deco last year. I shall post the shopping mall Christmas decoration in another post.
Walked into Forever 21 and looking for boots so that I can get some nice boots for my upcoming trip in spring. Trying out this boots and it's looking good on me. I posted this photo on facebook and get many comments, some say GET IT, some say NOPE. So, I decided not to get it cos it is not practical to wear at here and for travel, you might need some flat shoes. But not this type, so... BYE BYE heels!
