Lunch At Teh Tarik Place, Cameron Highlands.

Before we checked out of the Nova Highlands Resort and Residence, we went out to The Square in search of something to eat for lunch. We chose a place which suits everyone's taste buds. We settled for this Teh Tarik Place. "Teh tarik" means pulled tea.

Legend has it that "teh tarik" was invented in the 1800s when a Sultan wanted a different way to enjoy his tea. A young servant boy thought of a way to entertain the Sultan whilst he prepared the tea.

 Initially, most of us were interested in the above dishes.

 Then we were distracted by the above "Great Value".
So finally, most of us settled for this great value set.
This auntie totally forgotten about taking snapshots of the food!

Then there was war in heaven;
Michael and the angels under his command fought the Dragon
and his host of fallen angels.
And the Dragon lost the battle and was forced from heaven.

  1. Interesting post. We are not tea drinkers as such but we do like Ginger and Lemon herbal tea. Have a good day Diane

    1. Thank you, Diane. We are more of coffee drinkers. Like you, I too like ginger tea and lemon tea. Have a good day too!

  2. Hello, I love all the signs. The first one is cute. Pretty shots of the Doves and the great captures of the dragonflies. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  3. The signs were a joy such a fun take on how to enjoy tea around the world.

  4. Never heard of pulled tea before now!

    1. I think this is only available here in my country. Have a happy day!

  5. You forgot to take shots of the food. That is so unlike you, but you sure must have enjoyed your lunch if you forgot to take photographs.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Nancy. ☺

    1. Ha ha, Sandee. I suppose I was too taken up with the signs shots that I just sat down and started to eat. Really very unlikely of me! Lol!

  6. I love it.
    I have some that I made for the place myself.
    Good start to the month of September.

  7. I love all your nature pics and the signs and menu!

  8. Now I have learned a lot about drinking tea! Things I did not know. So interesting! So how was the tea? It should have been very good, because this place specializes in it

    1. Thank you, Ginny. The pulled tea or teh tarik was good!

  9. Blessings.....
    interesting variation on the stylistics of drinking tea

    1. Thank you, Rhapsody. I find the various styles of drinking tea very interesting too!

  10. I love the signs on how the various cultures drink their tea.

    And you have such great food always.

    1. I too love the different cultures' style of drinking tea!

  11. Pulled tea, i will have to look that up. Sometimes i do like a cup.

    1. The tea is poured into another mug from a distance, to and fro to create a layer of bubble on top of the tea. That's pulled tea!

  12. I loved all the signs, and great capture of the mourning doves, the damselfly and the dragonfly!

  13. Teh Tarik Place at the Curve is my fav outlet. Wow, they are now even in Cameron Highland. Sometimes we go for the combo meal deals too. Thanks for the photos for the various ways different cultures drink tea. very entertaining info!

    1. This is our first time at Teh Tarik Place. The food there is good.

  14. Love all the wall decor, Nancy. Was the teh tarik overly sweet? Actually, I enjoy teh tarik because by pulling it, the tea is cooled down nicely for me. But I rarely order teh tarik because it's usually too sweet for my liking.

    1. I requested for less sweet teh tarik. I don't like sweet drinks.

  15. Love all the signs, they make good decorations

    1. Yes, they do make good decorations! Have a lovely day!
