The Muffin Man Tea Shop, High Street Kensington

Every now and again, I crave for one of my favourite treats ever - the scones.  And since I now live in Southwest London, it has been really hard for me to find a local cafe that serves scones. Now that's a lie. Honestly, I have not made an effort because I am still going back to North London to treat myself once in a while. Although it's quite a long journey, I would still go there for the love of High Tea of Highgate's scones. The 45-minute tube ride is always worth it.

Recently though, I went back to a cafe in High Street Kensington called The Muffin Man. I have been there twice before but it's really not the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of scones. But when one of my friends suggested that we meet up half way for our afternoon tea, I thought I'd take her to The Muffin Man.

One thing I like about their scones is the fact that they're toasted. I like the crunchiness of it. The only thing is, I always miss cutting the scones into half. That is one of my favourite things.

Anyway, so I only remember to take photos after we have started eating. My friend ordered the Muffin Man Tea for £6.50, while I ordered my usual Devon Cream Tea for £6.10. Basically for less than £15, you get two English muffins, two scones, a cake and two pots of tea. I would say that it's really, really cheap. And you will not be disappointed because the food tastes very good.

All for less than £15 (pots of tea not in photo)

The smell of omelette from the other table was very tempting. We couldn't resist so we ordered one to share. 

They have other selections of cakes and pastries, and they have gluten-free too. 

All in all, this is a very good place for afternoon tea. If you are looking for a posh but not expensive tea shop, this is the place for you.

2018, Thank You For The Roller Coaster Ride!

If I have not said it before, New Year is my favourite time of the year as it gives me the opportunity to reflect on the life that was and to look forward to the life that will be.  2018 was indeed a roller coaster ride of emotions, but I remain grateful because those emotions provided me with valuable lessons to be learned. I guess it is fair to say that 2018, you gave me false hopes at the beginning, but then you gave me the light in the end.  So, how did my 2018 go? Well, I documented my journey in my instagram account, so here are a few of my musings that best describe the year that was: 1. Because we have each other, it's good vibes only. - J and I had some minor health scare at the beginning of 2018. As minor as it was, it gave us emotional instability and some degree of physical challenge. I came to a point when I felt like I couldn't do anymore, however, I was reminded that J and I were in this together. The support that we had for each other during this chal

Afternoon Tea in London: My Experiences in 2022

Afternoon Tea has become a huge part of my life since 2006. It has been one of the things that's keeping me sane and happy, especially when life seems challenging and I need something to cheer me up. This is the reason why I didn't even realise that I may have actually overdone it last year. But I have no regrets because I enjoyed every single Afternoon Tea experience I had then, most especially because I shared those experiences with people who matter, old and new. In fact, I had some of the most memorable Afternoon Tea experiences last year, and I'm going to tell you why. 1. The Claridge's - Brook St. - Afternoon Tea at The Claridge's was on top of my list last year and I am glad that I was able to share this experience with two wonderful friends, Damaris and Veronica. Perhaps I could say that this Afternoon Tea sealed our sisterhood. It's amazing because despite our huge age difference, we get on very well. And this is why this Afternoon Tea at The Claridge&#

Restaurants in London: My Experiences in 2022

Just the thought of writing about my London restaurant experiences last year makes me feel like a true food blogger (haha, who do I think I am?), when in reality, I am just someone who loves a meaningful catch up with friends over good food and enjoys writing about them. I am very blessed indeed to have friends who share the same passion for food, and who are willing to explore the London food scene with me. In 2022, a few of my favourite restaurants sadly permanently closed following the pandemic, however I also saw the rise of newly opened restaurants and cafes in the capital. In fact, my list of "restaurants and cafes  to try" is growing rapidly as there are a lot of new restaurants that look really promising. And this is one thing I love about London - the restaurant scene is vastly diverse, you will never run out of options to choose from. Also l ast year, I revisited some of the restaurants that are close to my heart. I also managed to tick a few boxes on my restaurant
