Update 2013: This cafe is no longer in operations at Wisma Volkswagen.
I was invited to TeaRoom by BelJee, a cafe at Wisma Volkswagen in Bangsar. They serve breakfast, lunch and my favourite meal of the day, tea. Tea time is so great, it should be everyone’s favourite meal!
Never been to Wisma VW before but it isn’t hard to find, quite near to Wisma UOA in Bangsar. Parking shouldn’t be a problem if you’re a bit, uh creative
TeaRoom is on the ground level at one corner, opposite the VW showroom. Small cosy little cafe, decorated in baby blue and white. Lovely place for a delicious cuppa, can feast your eyes on the latest VW models or occasional hot guys
First we had the Shepherd’s Pie (RM7.80). Well seasoned minced beef (or chicken if you like, we had the beef) topped with a proportionate amount of mashed potato crust, served piping hot with a side of creamy potato salad. Very simple and enjoyable – hearty, scrumptious and most satisfying!
We also sampled the Baked Pasta and Moussaka (RM7.80). The former had chicken if I remember correctly, it was a little dry when we had it that day. The moussaka was interesting: minced chicken and eggplant in a tomato ‘n herb sauce topped with white yoghurt bechamel sauce. At first I didn’t recognise it as yoghurt, thought it was a very fluffy egg. It was lovely to eat, perhaps better accompanied with some bread?
Next up, my kryptonite: cakes! Nyam nyam nyam nyam nyam! We had the Double Chocolate Brownie which was SO unbelievably chocolatey, almost fudgy and deliciously so. This is a serious, serious chocolate brownie; you better believe it!
The Gooey Butter Cake was only okay because our taste buds were so affected by the chocolate brownie and the cheese cake below, hah!
Now my favourite, the White Chocolate Lychee Cheesecake. If I could adequately describe how I’m so in love with the cheesecake, I would but right now I just can’t because the only thing on my mind right now is planning on how to get my grubby hands on yet another lychee cheesecake at the TeaRoom tomorrow.
That was quite a mouthful and so was this cheesecake. If I remember correctly, Belinda uses mascarpone for this recipe. The little bits of lychee wedged between the cheese and the crust only serve to complement. You should go try it out if you can.
There are other cakes and cupcakes available. At the moment it’s on a rotation basis while they’re getting business started. So do check out TeaRoom if you can, let me know what you think!
