From Sea Circus, we went to Biku for a pot of tea with style. I’ve heard many rave reviews about Biku over the years. Biku was once an antique store, then turned into a restaurant/tea lounge plus antiques and a bookstore. The restaurant is housed in a joglo style building. It was warm, cozy and spacious. That afternoon, the place was very busy and we only managed to get a table at the side terrace.
So we ordered a pot of lapsang souchong (originating from China’s Wuyi mountains,this distinctive smoky black tea is cured over pine needles) 25K and Biku Cooler (A blend of lemongrass, peppermint and rosella) 25K to share plus something sweet (in this case pavlova 35K) to accompany our tea. Then I went inside the restaurant and picked mexican chocolate cake 22K from the array of cakes of the day. Our tea turned out to be very delightful. I love the smokey aroma of the lapsang souchong, while the tisane was very aromatic and refreshing. The pavlova size was generous, but since I’m not much of a sweet tooth, I prefer the mexican chocolate cake. All in all, it was a delightful evening, the tea and cakes were scrumptious, the service was friendly, they even helped us hailing a cab to the airport. Will be back soon for breakfast and lunch.
