The Best High Tea!

Biku, Jln. Petitenget, Kerobokan, continues to offer a relaxing escape from the pandemic with its all day offering of High Teas, although there is also a full menu of alternate dishes for breakfast, lunch or dinner. A few years ago, whilst in Singapore, I decided to investigate the ‘famous’ High Tea at Raffles hotel, so I joined the long queue, along the terrace, with a host of tourists [mostly Japanese], paid the exorbitant fee at the door, and filed past a series of tables to collect from the bits pieces that were left after others in front of me had piled their trays as high as possible with so much food that they could not possibly eat all. Then to the tea counter and to find a corner of a small table where I could sit and eat what turned out to be a rather pathetic High Tea. What a difference to Biku and it charming setting, overlooked by the God Biku himself, where the attentive Ibu Asri [the Aussie Princess] hovers around to ensure everyone is happy. Your selected [there are many varieties] complete High Tea [see attached picture] is delivered to your table, fresh from the kitchen, in a manner impossible to compare with the awful Singapore experience. The happy chatter and the smiling faces everywhere, 

tell all.
