The TWG Experience

TWG

Honestly, I felt a little out of place stepping into this grandiose salon. All that gold and those vintage tin cans imbued this sense of elegance and royalty which I wasn’t sure I can handle. Once I got in, there was no turning back although it felt like I stepped back into time. It was like I entered the romantic era where I would be dining on a white-clothed table and sitting down on a well cushioned wicker chair. A small smile crept slowly on my face as I knew I was in for a treat.

Of course, we must have tea. Served in a majestic golden teapot, we had Orange Wood Tea which was perfect for that night. It has a slight taste of orange which I liked. Its aroma was pretty okay too. And yes, that’s my reflection on the teapot. Hello! 🙂

Watermelon Juice (P 150)

This was very refreshing and expensive. That small glass cost P150. It did say on the menu that it’s freshly squeezed so it better be.

Eggs Benedict (P 420)

Whenever I see Eggs Benedict on the menu, I always want to try it. I always want to check if the chef cooked the poached eggs to perfection. And perfection I did receive. Once I sliced the poached egg, the yolk beautifully came out. I had this with smoked salmon (another option was smoked turkey ham) and it was perfect. And I’ll be saying this word for the 4th time, overall, this meal was perfect.

Mini Burgers (P 520)

I must say, that is one lonely cherry tomato. But the meal itself wasn’t. My mom chose this and was satisfied with every burger. According to their menu, this consisted of Wagyu burger with TWG Tea’s homemade cocktail sauce, foie gras burger with fresh apple chutney, and spicy chicken burger with sauteed shallot confit.

Scallops Pasta (P 395)

My dad opted for their Scallops Pasta. I’m not much of a white sauce fan but this one was good. It was very flavorful. I’m not sure if it has something to do with the Silver Moon Tea which was said to be mixed in with the cream sauce.

‘Twas a night of indulgence and elegance. Will there be a repeat? Probably yes but I’m only sticking to their teas this time. Their meals are expensive and not budget friendly. Good to experience it for just this one time only. So yes, I’ll be back for the tea. And maybe paired with some scones and macarons this time.

    I love how their staff doesn’t have snooty vibes even if you’re just looking around. 🙂
