At the time of writing, this place is still called T-Cafe, but noticed have been out that it will be renamed as the Lord’s Cafe. Not sure why they want to do this as they have been operating as T-Cafe for such a long time. This is probably my 3rd or 4th time there in the last 5 – 7 years.
This has been one of my favourite places for lunch or tea in Tanah Rata. We ordered the scones and cream, but this time strawberry scones (they claim that they are the only ones in Camerons with it).
Nicely made, not too flaky and not too soft, just nice. Maybe served a little warmer would be good. Next up, home made apple pie and ice-cream.
The apple pie was well made, although I would have prefer an apple crumble instead of an apple pie. But as a pie, it is good. I can’t figure out where the ice-cream is from, it is slightly one the icey side but doesn’t taste like any of the commercially available ones. Maybe it is home made?
The vegetarian burger is definitely home made as I haven’t seen one like it before. It is made into a patty that really resembles a meat burger and does not simply break into pieces when you bite it. Well made.
They were advertising their home made chicken pie all over the shop, including on the windows. So, we ordered one.
It looks ok but unfortunately for me, a chicken pie with a tinge of curry spices just doesn’t go down well with me. It is well made, the filing is there but just the taste didn’t go well for an afternoon tea kinda snack.
Overall, I will patronize this place as I have always over the years. A little more attention spent on the interior deco would help especially with the entrance. For those who are not sure where it is, it is actually right above the Marry Brown friend chicken outlet, opposite the new bus station of Tanah Rata.
