Indulgence is, IMO, the BEST spot for English-style afternoon tea in Ipoh. Its setting - in a former British colonial Mock-Tudor bungalow amidst expansive lawns - certainly sets it apart from other Ipoh eateries.
Owner-chef, Julie Song's repertoire of cakes and pastries is peerless in Ipoh. I liked her scones a lot. Her tangy homemade jam was a bit too liquid for my taste, and I wished it was clotted cream instead of simply whipped cream.
The tiramisu lacked the touch of alcohol, but I guess they are maintaining a "halal", Muslim-friendly menu.
The creamy persimmon-meringue cake, with shards of chocolate, was tasty - almost like an Aussie pavlova. Love it.
The chicken sausage in puff pastry was THE best I'd had anywhere in Malaysia. Not to be missed!
Macaroons were perfect - crisp, fragile, with creamy filling.
I need to come back for dinner sometime - the menu looked fabulous.
