McFarland House rolls out new café menu with healthier choices

When you think about sweet treats, what comes to mind are these sinfully delicious cakes made with ingredients like cream, butter and sweet sauces, which are extremely hard to resist.

McFarland House has however now added another element to its afternoon café offerings, rolling out a brand-new menu that caters to the increasing interest in healthier choices.  You can now savour vegan cakes as well as gluten-free and dairy-free options on its menu from Mondays to Saturdays, at 2:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

Being laden with healthier choices does not mean that the menu is not indulgent.  Far from it, as you´ll be tucking into vegan waffles served with berries and coconut sherbet, buckwheat and quinoa pancakes drizzled with maple syrup, or gluten-free macaron cake made with berries.

If you love chocolate, the vegan cherry chocolate almond cake is a must-try.  Made with almond flour, dark chocolate, brown sugar and oil, the cake has less saturated fat and is deliciously topped with chocolate ganache.

Accompanying the sweets is an array of seven flavourful teas. Pick your choice from among classic black tea, loose leaf to Japanese Royal Genmaicha or a Chamomile Blossom infusion.  If you are not in the mood to drink tea, you may have a coffee or an iced-cold brew tonic.

McFarland House is a 19th century rustic pavilion-style wooden house in the gardens of Hyatt Regency Hua Hin that has been restored into a breezy beachfront bar and restaurant. It serves a distinctive European menu incorporating modern cooking methods with fresh local produce, resulting in a fusion of contemporary yet comforting food. Adding taste and aroma to the menu are organic herbs and vegetables lovingly nurtured in the resort’s kitchen garden.
