TeaRoom by Bel Jee

It's a terrific time to harbor a sweet tooth in Bangsar, since several divine dessert specialists have sprouted here. This week, TeaRoom by Bel Jee joins that list of sugar-high suppliers.

Belinda Jee has spent years baking for online orders, but she now has her own sunny cafe where walk-in customers can savor top-flight wares such as decadently creamy coffee cupcakes & densely moist carrot cupcakes, bursting with fragrant bits of grated carrots, raisins & walnuts.

We also liked the chocolate cupcake with dark choc ganache, but if you choose only one item, make it the chocolate blueberry cheese cupcake. Instead of a cake base, this has a soft, sticky layer of rich chocolate at the bottom, a nectarous swirl of blueberry-filled cream cheese in the middle and thick, luscious frosting on top. Otherworldly.

Strawberry cheese cake. Juicy morsels of ultra-fresh strawberries pervaded every bite of this slice, proving that Bel Jee tolerates no short cuts or second-rate ingredients.

Chocolate cake with milk choc icing. TeaRoom Boutique Cafe is smallish, so it might get crowded for lunch. Business hours are 8.30am-6pm on weekdays _ inconvenient for those of us who work away from Bangsar, but let's hope it eventually stays open for dinner.

  1. OMG!!! I cant eat fast enough to catch up!!!!! Nor can i run fast enough to burn these calories!! ARgghhghghghghhhh !!
    *dilemma of a dessert-holic *

  2. tng: gosh, imagine how much worse it is for those of us who NEVER run at all! i'm actually hoping that NO MORE dessert-dedicated outlets open for a few months, cos i feel like i've already exceeded a year's quota of cupcakes! :D

  3. Whoa... that's a lot of cupcakes! :P

  4. the cupcakes looked so cute! Too cute to be eaten.

  5. Omg those look awesome and to die for! (and also like they would stay on human thighs forever zzz) One would probably have a sugar rush after all that :p -Wendy

  6. Good morning Sean, Love going thru your blog. I always look forward to seeing what gastronomical adventures you've been up to. Keep up the good work.

  7. joe: sugar is sweet ... and so am i? heheh :D
    lfb: have i ever said no to temptation? :P
    eiling: a true treat for both the eyes and the taste buds! :D
    dropsofcontentment: you're absolutely right, wendy! the sugar buzz lasted for nearly six hours! an hour for each cake, heh =)
    renaura: thank you so much for your very kind words. really appreciated. i have lots of fun visiting these places, and it's a pleasure to share these thoughts with everyone :D

  8. If the name of temptation is "1.8 litres of sake", then I'm guessing no... :P

  9. lfb: aiya, stop defaming meeeee! i've not had sake for nearly a week now. sniff sniff. :D

  10. yeah where's the 1,8 litres? LOL

  11. qwazymonkey: gulp. i just realized that 1.8 liters is actually the total amount of plain water that a person is supposed to drink in 24 hours :D

  12. Hi Sean. A BIG thanks for putting up a post about us. A few people came after reading your blog:). The milk chocolate cake didn't look too nice there, sorry, we were having "technical" problem with the chiller. Meanwhile I've replace that item with white chocolate lychee cheese cake and gooey butter cake. Ohh just managed to put up the brownies too. Let me know when you come again so I can give you a sample or two ... ;)

  13. bel: no worries, we truly did enjoy all your cakes (especially the choc blueberry cheese cupcake one, which is till haunting our dreams!). please keep up the good work; we'll try to drop by whenever we finish work earlyk, heheh =)
