[Kuching Must Eat]

【Afternoon Tea - The Kuching Style! 】

By Ashley Sim May Yee on Apr 7, 2018

Hello fellow Kuchinglangs! Do you often find your stomach growling during odd daylight hours or between lunch and dinner? I’m pretty sure that’s a YES do we! And the perfect way to tone down those hunger pangs is to have Afternoon Tea/High Tea! While the understanding of the term “Afternoon Tea” varies from person to person, one would usually think of cakes, finger sandwiches, scones, cookies, mini pastries and tea served on a tiered cake stand with the prettiest floral Chinaware over lace and doilies. Sounds luxurious doesn’t it? But no worries, because we have sourced out 5 places in Kuching for you to have an enjoyable afternoon tea session without breaking your bank. So read on and don’t forget to LIKE, SHARE and JIO your friends for an Afternoon Tea session la...


[Rihga (Stall No.7) @ Song Kheng Hai Hawker Centre]


A place where you can have all the local favorites under one roof, Song Kheng Hai Hawker Centre is always packed with people who’d come here for lunch or afternoon tea. And one of the local favorites would be the delicious and hot-out-of-the-wok Kompias from Rihga (Stall No.7), which is located at a corner around the back. Besides the usual Minced Meat (Original) filling, they have other fillings too such as Cheese, Garlic & Ham. Come try out all the flavors! Apart from Kompias, Rihga also serve Rojak and Sio Bees. So instead of going to a high-priced cafe for pastries, why not opt for Rihga’s savoury Kompias.
