Maids of Honour tartlets, a near-legendary recipe with roots dating back to Henry VIII's reign in the 1500s, are Newens' main claim to fame - served warm, these pastries prove enjoyable enough, crisp & flaky at first bite, sweet & luscious to the chew.
Other offerings at this British import, brought to KL's Starhill Gallery from Kew Road, seem suited for a posh high tea outing - scones, minced steak pasties, tonnes of tea & more than a few cocktails.
