After the Haematology forum was done, I caught up with Anita and the boys at Bangsar Village II. Idlan had just finished his Lego class, and had not had lunch yet. Even though I had already had some nasi briyani for lunch after the forum, I wouldn’t mind having something light. We wanted to go to Citrus, but halfway, we came across ’T four two’ on the first floor - not the Upper Ground floor with the bridge from Village II to the old Bangsar Village - and gave it a go. It has a nice serene garden ambiance, and the main attraction was of course tea …. and the teapots.
There were many variety of teas on display, and we as usual would either have chamomile or English Breakfast. We ordered a pot to share around - I had some mocha to stay awake after being up since four that morning. For food, I ordered crabmeat nicouse salad, and Anita ordered steak to share with the boys. My salad was not too bad. The crabmeat was succulent but they used to much vinaigrette for the dressing, and I had to use lemon to neutralise the taste. Anita’s steak was too raw despite ordering medium well. We had to cut this slices of the edges to share with the boys. It did came with French Fries but not gravy. The steak ended up being too dry.
The tea was something else, with variety to choose from, and the tacky teapots.
I guess the place made for a nice spot to have either light lunch or afternoon tea, to share with friends. The spot we picked was basically a garden bench, which was nice and comfortable. The lightings were both bright and subdued, very cosy indeed. We did not order dessert, but from what I saw, they looked yummy. They also offer tea for two package for around RM60, which included drinks, sandwiches and dessert. Maybe one could go for that for value.
But for heavy meal, I suggest maybe you ought to go somewhere else - Delicious at the Ground Floor may be. The place was also not really cheap. They also have another outlet at Empire Gallery, Subang.
