UPDATE: Another post on the ultra-delectable Chocolate Blueberry Cheese cupcake! Check it out!
It may not be on the popular Telawi stretch, but location didn’t seem to matter for Belinda Jee’s little gem ” TeaRoom by Bel Jee”.
It was only opened last June but has already gained quite a reputation. Of course it helped that her previous set of of clientele from her home-based designer cake business followed her wherever she goes; and while the little cafe does allow her to serve walk-in guests, I can see that retail has yet to be the core of her business.
TeaRoom by Bel Jee – Wisma Volkswagen, Lorong Maarof.
Yup, this is it. All the space & tables there is for the cosy cafe.
The cafe mainly attracts the working crowd in the vicinity. Taking into consideration the time factor, Bel has cleverly created homely but “fast” food that can be served immediately – or maybe with a bit of reheat. Take for example the pies.
I didn’t see these on my visit on Sat, but I heard there’s more like the chilli con carne (a Mexican minced chicken and kidney beans dish, RM 7.80). Anyhow, I was there mainly for desserts that day & was a tad disappointed to see the limited choices available.
Nonetheless, we ordered the below to test the waters.
Goey butter cake – RM4.20.
The “goey” part obviously refers to the custard-like middle which was nice & cheesy. All Bel’s cakes has a fair sweetness level that doesn’t make you feel like you had too much.
White chocolate cheese longan. RM8.50. This was VERY GOOD! As you can see from its appearance, it’s a very homely made cake with not so much emphasis on looks but totally delivers on the taste. The refreshing scent & mild floral sweetness from the lychees cuts through the richness of the cheese very well.
Even our Ice lemon tea was also nicely brewed with perfect tea/lemon/sugar ratio. TeaRoom by Bel Jee currently only serves coffee & chocolate from Segafredo.
Last but not least, we sampled the Bread & Butter pudding – courtesy of Bel Jee. Thanks!
The use of Croissants in the pudding gave it a rich flavour. The accompanying cream was lovely, delicately decadent without being too creamy. So far so good. I’ll definitely be back soon for more!
Oh, my only peeve about Tearoom by Bel Jee?
It’s the odd operating hours & days. It’s closed on Sundays & if you were to visit on Sats, the range of desserts are pretty limited as she clears off as much as possible seeing that they are not operational the day after.
On weekdays it’s closed before most of us can even leave the office.
