TeaRoom by Bel Jee @ Wisma Volkswagen, Bangsar

Ahhh...now for a entry on a little delightful place.  Located along a rather obscure place for an eatery, one could easily miss TeaRoom.  Do take note, the only car park in the nearby area charges RM6 per entry. One can choose to park illegally across the building but I'm not one to risk my life in trying to sprint across the road should  the authorities show up in an attempt to try and escape from getting a summon.  So, the RM6 car park it is...

TeaRoom by Bel Jee

I've passed by Wisma Volkswagen on numerous occasion as I make my way to Wisma UOA to get my monthly Melaleuca stuff.  Glorious Jade and I finally dropped by and found this place cosy albeit a "little" warm should the sun be out in full force.  We shifted from one "sunny" table to a much "shadier" one when that happened.

Tea time!

We were greeted by Bel Jee herself.  As to why she chose this location, Bel told us that she had wanted a place that would allow her to work close to office hours, which meant that she didn't need to open TeaRoom on weekends (oh, TeaRoom is opened for a few hours on Saturdays).  Setting up TeaRoom in Wisma Volkswagen meant that she could cater to the office crowd and tackle corporate orders along with cake orders from folks on the outside.  She would have the "foot traffic" without having to open in a mall somewhere which would entail longer hours.  Clearly, Bel still values her free time though she's an entrepreneur ... good move indeed.

Baked Pasta
We tried the Chicken Baked Pasta (RM7.80) served with crabstick salad and lovely fresh greens on the side.  Though the pasta was on the dry side (it's baked after all), I liked the flavours and found myself digging into this, depriving Glorious Jade's share! hahaha...

The Moussaka (RM7.80) also came served with the same crabstick salad and fresh greens.  I found the Moussaka intriguing indeed.  The top layer was fluffy; almost omelette like...upon doing a search, I found out that the top layer is yogurt!  The minced chicken with eggplant (with onions, tomatoes and capsicum) with the fluffy top was a welcome change and was not heavy on the palate like how some moussaka can be.  Tea time became more than a tea time though and we made some room for dessert ...

Gooey Butter Cake
Gooey Butter Cake (RM4.20) was nice.  I like the simplicity of it...a layer of custard on the top with a firm butter cake that went so well together.  Yes, simple but lovely indeed.

Sure, I would drop by TeaRoom again ... the "warmth", coziness and the simplicity of it gives the place "character", one which I like ...

But I like moussaka with LAMB!
Like it should be. Had one at Kokopelli the other day.
