For a buffet hi tea we are definitely spoilt with the numerous choices/dishes available. We can to eat more to our heart's content. The never ending buffet line tend to make us over-eat but I find the ambience around these buffer is not most conducive for relaxing as you find people walking around trying to make up their mind "what to eat"..... at least that's what I do too (guilty).
Mention about a tradition English tea and visions of tranquility and elegance, decadence and romance come to our minds. Its that hot pot of tea with its partners - scones and/or cakes/sandwiches. Here we are being served and this welcome us to sit back and relax and enjoy ourselves.
What more when the cafe is named Retro Kitchen .... how retro is it?
It is located on the 2nd floor of a shoplot in the busy area of SS2 food court and upon entering...
Plenty of nostalgic items- black vinyl records - some of my favourite movies and soundtracks.
Plastic tablecloth and bottles of root beers, not sure whether these are for drinking or for the decor.
Beautiful enamelled cookingware and ceramics - how I love that the teapot!
Looking forward to teatime!
Our selection of teas: Masala Chai, Rose Tea, Earl Grey, Rosella tea and Green Tea with Jasmine
It was definitely not Chester and Chloe cup of tea so we ordered a fish and chips and pizza for them (for us as well..hahaha).
After finishing our tea my sister-in-law went home with the kids as it was time for their siesta.
I got my niece to take my sister and me to The Mines Shopping Mall....

It has been a very very long time since I visited this shopping mall... when my kids were kids- that long ago. The mall has being upgraded and is very busy and bustling with shoppers.
The popular boat rides around the shopping mall.

Never tired of this- Saba Shioyaki and my niece ordered the Curry Ka Jyu (Chicken curry rice).
