We were meeting our friend, M, and her hubby, who were currently staying in London, for dinner… M promised to bring hubby to a lovely Fish & Chips place, so that hubby can finally announce to he world that he has tried some authentic Fish & Chips :p
We met at Paddington Station, which was near where M was staying and it was also a short walk to the Fish & Chips place. As we were early, we decided to have a mini tea break first… Haha!
We have heard great reviews on Patisserie Valerie, and there happened to be an outlet at Paddington Station, so this was where we parked ourselves.
Devonshire Cream Tea Set
Wifey was in London for a work trip so I was all alone in search of food in Holland Village. Since the time was just right for afternoon tea, I decided to visit Fosters, an Engligh Rose Cafe (which is also a steak restaurant for lunch and dinner) again for its very affordable Devonshire Cream Tea Set ($11.50)!
The set comes with a pair of freshly-baked scones served with butter, home-made strawberry preserve and cream, fruit cake, finger sandwiches and a choice of a pot of coffee or tea, which of course I opted for Cafe Latte instead.
The scones on itself were already heavenly and its taste was leveled up with the clotted cream! Baked freshly everyday at 3pm, the scones were crispy on the outside and soft and light on the inside which did not give a very heavy feeling, especially when there were two to go with.
Definitely recommended if you are in the vicinity, and at the right time!
