English Tea House and Restaurant, Sandakan


I visited the renowned colonial style English restaurant, perhaps the only one of its kind found in Sabah -- The English Tea House and Restaurant at Sandakan with high expectation. The restaurant opened for business since 2002, providing a fine touch of Afternoon English Tea and other western menu to Sandakan people as well as tourist from England or Australia who are visiting the famous Agnes Keith's House nearby, the Sipilok Orang Utan Rehabs Centre and the World War II Memorial Park, few kilometres away from Sandakan town.

We ordered the Royal Tea Set which serves two person, only cost at RM38/set. The Afternoon English Tea at the English Tea House is available all day.

Tea for 2
A bit disappointed with the Tea Selections :(

Royal Tea Set (RM38)
Consist of 2 pieces of warm scones at the bottom, 6 pieces of bite size savoury sandwiches at the second tier and 6 small pieces of pastries on the top tier. 

Red velvet mini cupcake? Chocolate Brownie? Orange Cake?
Interesting ....

6 pieces of sandwiches, 4's with chicken ham, 2's with tomatoes

Scones with Clotted Cream and Strawberry Jam
Clotted cream was NICE! Some places use fresh cream but I always preferred butter cream or this kind of creamy cream. It is made with full cream fresh milk, heated to reduce the water content of the milk to make it thicker -- therefore a full fat cream was formed!

Orange Smoothies (Front, RM10) and Kinabalu Cooler (RM13)

This chilling cocktail really made my day! 

English Tea House and Restaurant is very strategic located, oversee the Sandakan Bay at one side while enjoying the British landscape here. No surprise here is one of the popular venue in Sandakan to held a romantic Garden Wedding or company's event.
