Though we could go for another round of steamboat, we were not really in mood for it. Hence, a quick good search has brought us to this place in Tanah Rata, Cameron Highland.
Locating Rosette Café was quite a chore. We roughly knew where the café was but we still had to look out for it. Without a proper signage, I had to rely on photos posted on the internet to search for it. The only landmark that I managed to spot from the photos was the Ambank.
Despite its small space, the café exuded relaxing ambiance with tables and chairs arranged close to one another. The menu was pretty extensive. It has probably more than 50 dishes covering from rice to noodles, eastern dishes to western meals. The café also served steamboat too… pretty much a common thing for restaurants in Cameron Highland.
Nothing wanting to go full on, we opted for something simpler; their dinner set meal which consists of bread and butter, soup, main (western) meal and a drink. There were two sets and we went for both; Set Meal A (RM16.50) and Set Meal B (RM18.50).
The food didn’t take long to arrive although the café was half filled. The warm buns were quite tasty, went well with the knob of butter. The mushroom soup, however, was pretty much run of the mill.
The black pepper steak (Set Meal B) was pretty tender. But due to their seasoning of sorts, it somehow has the sweet taste after each bite. I didn’t really like it but I didn’t hate it either.
The chicken chop with mushroom sauce (Set Meal A), on the other hand, was pretty good. The chicken was well marinated and deep fried to perfection. The skin was crispy while the meat was still juicy; pretty good to eat it on its own even without the sauce. The mashed potatoes on the side was probably of those instant ones; nothing to shout about.
For the price we paid for, I guess they were quite affordable. The portion was alright and the service was okay. We left the café feeling just right, enough space for a cuppa and dessert.
