RoyalT Cafe: High Tea

5 years ago

The Royal/T Cafe is this adorable japanese inspired cafe in Los Angeles, specifically Culver City. The owner sought to bring Japanese street culture to America. This cafe encompasses Japan in its art, culture, and cuisine. The cafe itself is pretty much set up like a museum. They have a lot of interesting installation pieces that are sure to attract the art-lover in you. Also the waitresses dress up in little maid outfits. How cute is that?!?!!?!? I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, as we both love Japanese culture, and hope to visit Japan in the near future.

Onto the FOOD!!!

I came here for the High Tea Set, which got really high reviews. It consisted of a pot of tea, in the flavor of my choosing, and a three tiered platter filled with food!!! YAY!
<em>Bottom Tier:</em> Consisted of 4 Sandwiches. A moist, juicy Chicken salad sandwich. An uncrushed uncooked salmon sandwich with cream cheese. A tuna tartare topped with some guacamole. Lastly, a veggie panini pressed veggie sandwich with fresh mozzarella and some kind of unique sauce. The sandwiches themselves were okay. I think they looked a lot better than they tasted. My palette is very traditional so my favorite was the chicken salad sandwich.
<em>Middle Tier</em> LIght Deserts. There was a little mocha cake, a tiny cheesecake, some strawberry mousse, a brownie, and fresh fruits scattered about.
<em>Top Tier</em> It was simply a cookie with tiny nuts and cranberries in it.

Overall, the high tea set was a bit of a letdown. It looks a lot cuter than it tasted. But it was good to at least give everything a try.

My boyfriend on the other hand, wanted some real food, and not something so light. So he got the green tea soba noodles with chicken that had mushrooms, veggies, and was covered in oyster sauce. His was definitely the most delicious of our food.

If you`re in the area, its definitely something you need to check out if you love art/food. They also have a cute little shop, where you can pick up random little knick knacks to take home.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for visiting,
