The Smokehouse Hotel & Restaurant, Tanah Rata

The most famous restaurant and also one of the most expensive restaurant is The Smokehouse Hotel & Restaurant. If you look onto the Google Map, you will find them occupying quite a big space at Cameron Highlands. Never regret for a photography session and a cup of tea with scones here. The only thing need to worry is your wallet because it is very expensive.
This area is purposely designed just for the hotel and restaurant patrons to take their photos. If you are not, you only can take picture from the outside like this.
Orchids are smiling in the climate like this. Chilling but just nice.
They have various of areas for you to enjoy a different session of meal. Over here, you can enjoy your breakfast and lunch with a cool breeze of air from this cute fan.
This can be guest waiting area and also a place for photography.
She just love to take photograph, don't she?
Open area here is for your breakfast and afternoon tea if the weather is very kind to you. Unfortunately, we were there on the rainy season. So photography session will be just perfect now.
I told you, she got the talent to be a model.
This area is specially designed for a candle light dinner. Romantic atmosphere!
Homemade Cookies @RM16.00++ - So expensive to cost almost RM8.00++ per piece. But they are so delicious enough which I have a wild thought to steal their cookie jar. FYI, this comes with a complimentary Boh Tea for one person. Upgrading the tea with be charged separately. 
Devonshire Cream Tea @RM25.00++ - Their scones are really delicious! Apart from the Harrods, this scones give me the best impression with their with soft in the inside and a little hard crust at the outside. Some scones stick between your teeth which makes you super uncomfortable but this one is just nice. Eat while it is still hot! FYI, set comes with a set of tea for one person. Refilling of hot water is allowed.
Smokehouse Cream Tea @RM33.00++ - Same as above with a set of tea for one person. The only difference is the cake. I am not really fancy the cherry cake. I hate berries. One thing you have to notice is the tea set is strictly for one person only. Sharing is not allowed and will be charged separately.
The best to go with the scones are these! Devonshire cream and the natural strawberry jam! The cream is so delicious which you would like to eat it just like that. While the strawberry jam is fresh from Cameron Highlands and no preservative added. I usually go for the cream whenever I had my scones but this time the fresh strawberry jam has taken the upper class in my heart.

Overall: 2/5 - Just a normal kiddie set for our beautiful little girl here. She enjoys it a lot but I think it is still acceptable.

Final picture for the mother and daughter, aren't she cute? Look how she pose. Hahaha...cute girl. She will become a beautiful girl in the future for sure! Overall, I think this restaurants only good with their scones and tea. Other than that, I do not believe they are at the level yet. Well, I would like to try their candlelight dinner one day.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
