Roast meat platter included roast duck, char-siew and soy sauce chicken. Roast duck was surprisingly passable. Nice tender meat with cripy skin albeit a little fatty. Char siew was too salty. Chicken was of average standard.
I haven't had kangkong in such a long time. This version was ok but the squid was overcooked hence rubbery.
The favourite of the day was this deep-fried whole bass cooked in salted vegetable gravy. Seasong was subtle and the fish was juicy and soft.
Shopfront at historic Harrogate
I had, naturally, the high tea set for one GBP12.50
The scone was delicious! I mop it up with ALL the clotted cream!
Which came with full silver (plated?) tea service.
Big King ordered Chicken wrapped in ham with rosti (a carnivore through and through)
The ham was so salty but balanced with the unseasoned (read:tasteless) chicken. Rosti is nice and crispy. Salad tasted a bit weird, I guess it was pre-made in bulk and just dish out onto plates for every order. Ewwww, I don't like..........I can't remember what the sauce taste like. All in all, a rather disappointing dish.
The sister company, Taylors of Harrogate, stocks some rare single estate coffee, which some had made their way into Betty's menu. Yemeni Mocha Ismaili stood out like pop-up art cos I've never even heard of it (sakai, sakai). It came in a cafetierre, which I am not keen on.

I've tried several recipes, all are good. Big King said this one is good enough to sell! :D
