Langham Hotel Hong Kong 朗廷酒店 in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong was quite the treat whilst travelling, rushing around meeting up with friends and family. From hookah bars and shisha lounges, private Thai kitchens to outdoor kitchens, and your coffee house and dives, an afternoon tea revolving around a fairy tale theme with my girls (and a me day away from the hubs) was delightful. The Palm Court at the Langham Hotel was traditionally classic with all the bells and whistles – chandelier, plush seats, silverware and friendly services. Most of all, they were able to accommodates us with such little notice. Please remember to RSVP.
There are two tiffin features available 1. Sleeping Beauty: traditional sandwich and scones or 2. Beauty and the Beast: chocolate-inspired. Both sets comes with a souffle at the end with three choices flavors of Mango Caraibe Chocholate, Ginger and Candied Mandarin, and Hazelnut Cappuccino and choice of sauces: Raspberry Mint, Bitter Chocolate, and vanilla Bean.

We ordered two Sleeping Beauty and one Beauty and the Beast. The presentation was beautiful and the selection were pretty good.
Plenty of savory finger sandwiches to go around and all made delicately with great flavors. Not your typical cucumber sandwiches! Next we move onto the sweets of macaron, chocolates, and tartlets from mildly sweet to bouncing of the walls type of sweet. There is something for all walks of life.
The scones were buttery and airy. Served with Devonshire cream and jam preserves.
Also at the end of our course we each received a souffle of your choice: Mango Caraibe Chocholate, Ginger and Candied Mandarin, or Hazelnut Cappuccino. Also you can choose a flavor of sauces – Raspberry Mint, Bitter Chocolate, and vanilla Bean. The souffle was light and airy, tho it looks as it has already collapsed a bit by the time we began nibbling at it.
