Tea & Scones at Bala’s Holiday Chalet

Was feeling the heat in the city and decided to pop by Cameron Highlands for a quick reprieve. It was a really short break and we took it easy. Who’d have thought it would rain? Joke’s on us. Lol. Put up at Bala’s Holiday Chalet and decided to enjoy the garden view by having tea at their tea house. There are some outdoor and garden seats but as there was a light drizzle, we had to sit on the inside.

The inside of the tea house looks cosy with its bright colours regardless of some of the cement finishes. We chose a table by the windows and had a pleasant view of the garden.

Our tea – Scones and a slice of chicken pie. The scones were warm, soft and fluffy. Wasn’t expecting a curry chicken pie but it was delish nevertheless.

Though it was a nice and enjoyable experience sipping tea in the cool climate of Cameron, this tea break cost us RM45 for 2 which is a bit steep, considering the better deal at Jim Thompson tea room in Cameron Highlands Resort. Service was also lacking as it took more than 15 mins before we were attended to. But we were served very quickly after that. Still, it’s the experience that counts.

    really so good? saw the sign pointing towards Bala’s, but din bother paying them a visit. probably will do so if we ever go there again.

    epicuriousgirl says: so far, one of the better ones i have tasted in cameron. 🙂

  4. Hear it’s a pretty good place to stay as well! Not quite your average dingy hostel but not priced to make you scream bloody murder! Ooh disjointed pie looks good…

    epicuriousgirl says: true that. more affordable than the smokehouse or lakehouse lor…
