It’s Always Tea O’ Clock at The White Room

Tucked in Luru’s landmark Highgates Hotel is a not-so-quaint glasshouse styled coffee & tea house. If you’ve already been here, you’ve defo felt the English vibe that hits you upon arriving at the lawn mailbox at the entrance.

We dawdled in on a Thursday late evening, for a cup of coffee and light bites.

What We Drank:

Natural Rosehip with Hibiscus (above) – So light, so translucent, so perfect. For not being a tea person, surprisingly enjoyed my cuppa. This tea got our palate totally going for what was next!

The Oreo Shake (below – right) – Extremely thick and creamy, perfect for oreo cookie lovers as you get these teeny tiny bits with every sip.

Cafe Mocha (below – left) – This would be ideal for a chocolate milkshake lover who also adores their cold coffee. Due to not having a sweet tooth, this tasted a bit too sugary and chocolatey for myliking (serves me right for being a coffee lover who tried to choco-fy their caffeine).


What We Ate:

Salad (above) – Chinese grilled chicken with crispy noodles and sprout salad (Huge portion, could be a meal on its own to be honest. Crunchy, fresh and yum!).

Light Bite – Chicken sliders (A definite re-order! The buns were soft and the chicken coated in pesto went beautifully with creamy mayo sauce)
