If STG sounds familiar to you, it is because this café is the second outlet of the new STG chain of food and beverage outlets, with the first one, STG Tea House Café in Chateau Garden, Ipoh. A third outlet will be coming up soon in two months’ time in Taiping’s Spritzer EcoPark.

While enjoying your meal here, I would recommend tea to go with your food, particularly the pesticide-free Sabah tea and the organic Borneo Rainforest tea, which the café is so famous for. By the way, if something sweeter is your cup of tea, perhaps you should try a mocktail. It’s Jim’s very own invention.
