Mary Eats Cake

We love all the paraphernalia of high tea – the British tradition of drinking tea while sitting in fancy chairs at a table on which there are savoury and sweet treats, usually on tiered plates. While there are some swish high tea places around Melbourne, those of us on a halal diet usually opt for vegetarian. But now, there are a couple of halal high tea options. The first place where you can try a halal high tea in Melbourne is called Mary Eats Cake, and it has two venues – in gritty inner city Brunswick and at the foothills of the Dandenongs in Montrose. We opted for the pretty, rustic cottage in Montrose which had lovely views of the mountains east of Melbourne. You book and pay for the high tea online, selecting a package with ‘dietary’ in it. During the booking you are able to select ‘halal’ as the dietary option. The package includes four savoury and three sweet dishes, a cold drink, plus fluffy scones with jam and cream, and of course a bottomless supply of tea. The scones are also unlimited (though I, my old friend and neighbour, and my daughter all struggled to get through one given all the other yummy items), the venue is absolutely stunning, and the staff friendly and knowledgeable about the different types of tea which are made in-house by Mary Eats Cake staff.

Kami menyukai semua perlengkapan dan suasana acara ‘high tea’ – tradisi Inggris minum teh sambil duduk di kursi mewah di meja yang di atasnya terdapat camilan gurih dan manis, biasanya di piring berjenjang. Meskipun ada beberapa tempat ‘high tea’ enak di sekitar Melbourne, kita yang menjalani diet halal biasanya memilih vegetarian. Tapi sekarang, ada beberapa pilihan teh halal. Tempat pertama di mana Anda dapat mencoba high tea halal di Melbourne namanya Mary Eats Cake, dan ada dua cabang – di daerah kota Melbourne Brunswick dan di dekat bukit Dandenongs di Montrose. Kami memilih lokasi pedesaan yang cantik di Montrose yang memiliki pemandangan indah pegunungan yang di bagian timur luar Melbourne. Untuk booking, harus memesan dan membayar high tea online, memilih paket dengan ‘dietary’ di dalamnya. Lalu, dapat memilih ‘halal’ sebagai pilihan ‘dietary’-nya. Paket termasuk empat hidangan gurih dan tiga hidangan manis, minuman dingin, scone lembut dengan selai dan krim, dan tentu saja teh (unlimited). Sconenya juga unlimited (meskipun saya, teman lama dan tetangga saya, dan putri saya semua sulit untuk menghabiskan satu scone saja, mengingat semua item lezat lainnya), dekor ruangannya benar-benar menakjubkan, dan stafnya ramah dan berpengetahuan tentang berbagai jenis teh yang dibuat sendiri oleh staf Mary Eats Cake.
