- Afternoon tea buffets are popular in Asia but almost non-existent anywhere else in the world
- Sometimes the most unattractive afternoon tea services are the most delicious. And the most attractive ones can be the least delicious. This happens more often than you’d expect.
Tea at Grand Hyatt Singapore is served at 10 SCOTTS. Most people visit for the tea buffet, but seeing as we just finished afternoon tea at Mandarin Oriental Singapore, we went with the tea set. A simple two-tier affair, no scones. To drink, a tisane of baby rosebuds.
Curry puff was excellent…as close as you get to “real food” when it comes to afternoon tea. Fried to order, super crispy and flaky. Potatoes, peas, and spicy curry sauce inside…
Next is the popiah with a side of chili water.
And then the crab cake, also fried to order (this doesn’t happen often at afternoon tea). A hearty, sweet beast with remoulade.
Warm pretzel bun with shaved prosciutto and cantaloupe/rockmelon.
Sweets included a berry crumble tart…
…vanilla sponge cake….
…and chocolate mousse and cream cake.
Blackberry coupe to finish.
A real cozy room for tea ^-^
