KL 2017 The Cafe at Royal Selangor


On Thaipusam day, my sister and I visited Royal Selangor, also to meet up with an ex-colleague. My sister also had a short working life in Royal Selangor while waiting for her STPM result.

We had the special for the day which is lamb with potatoes. The lamb was quite tender and not gamey at all.

If you are not hungry, you can always have a slice of cake with tea in an expensive teapot.

Then we went to tour the show room. Selberan is a subsidiary of Royal Selangor which manufactures jewelry. I started my career here before I was transferred to the head office of Royal Selangor.

There is a hands on class which teaches kids how to make a pewter plate from scratch. It’s about RM60 per class if I remembered correctly. You get to bring home the plate you make.
