We went to Nara for afternoon tea. One set of food plus tea is $12.99 ++. We got two sets and a Nara Coconut ice-cream for $8.80++.

Below is the rambutan ice and two afternoon tea sets in the one tea stand.


xz0uLU1389017096The first tier of the tea set is fresh fruit on skewers, and mango to eat with the sweet/salty sticky rice and coconut cream.

The second tier was indeed my favourite, I loved the round agar agar, it was coconut cream jelly on the base, with coconut water jelly on top with coconut flesh bits – delicious. Then was the coconut jelly with coconut cream, love letters (which are slightly sweet/salty) and the porkd1Uzxu1389017211 floss-like mini taco shells. Finally the mini jelly fruits are jelly surrounding yellow bean paste inside.

The third tier was the savoury tier. Two money bags, which are like fried wontons, two chicken skewers, rice flower with pickled vegetables inside and pineapple bits.

aQqpR91389017059The  stand out though, was not the afternoon tea sets, but the Nara Coconut Ice-cream. This is truly impressive. You get one scoop of coconut ice-cream, plus eight large glasses filled with various condiments (clock-ways from the top left):

  1. V6IbkN1389016942red ruby – chestnut in rosewater jelly
  2. palm sugar
  3. corn
  4. peanuts
  5. sticky rice
  6. aloe vera
  7. green jelly
  8. jackfruit slices


I particularly enjoyed the red ruby and aloe vera jelly cubes.
