English Afternoon Tea at Planters Lounge, Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang

One of the best place to enjoy English Afternoon Tea is at Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang. As many of you may have known, the old wing is currently undergoing a major renovation, but fret not as you can still pamper yourself to the luxuriousness of the English Afternoon Tea at Planters Lounge. Located on the 6th floor, Planters Lounge is now open to the public and welcomes you to a brand new dining experience where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the delicious creations and at the same time sip away to the fragrant teas while enjoying the beauty of the view.

This was actually my first time here and I just love the ambiance.

Imagine sitting back enjoying your meal while looking at the sea. Beautiful isn't it?

The setup brings much elegance and style.

Top Tier 
Raisin and Plain Scones

This is the real deal. Spread the clotted cream and jam, and voila every bite into the light soft scones is heavenly good. 

Middle Tier
Smoked Salmon Tartare Sandwich - Wholemeal loaf
Crab Meat Slaw Sandwich - Wholemeal loaf
