For a birthday girl, we went for a weekend Afternoon Tea At Tea Lounge Of Regent Singapore in June 2016. It was a luxe indulgence. I am one who rarely go for buffet of any sort since I tend to over eat during such a feast. But since it was for a birthday celebration of a dear one, my aunt, I picked the treat at the Tea Lounge of Regent Singapore for this private celebration.
Both the weekday and weekend afternoon tea at the Regent Singapore are served at the Tea Lounge. The interior decoration of the Tea Lounge seems to me English. It has a mixture of couch seats and normal dinning tables.
We were glad that we were allocated the normal dinning table.
Weekend Afternoon Tea At Tea Lounge Of Regent Singapore
The weekend afternoon tea at Tea Lounge of Regent Singapore is served in the form of buffet with a wide range of food. Since my aunt was craving for cakes, we dived straight to the sweet section of the buffet.
First was the western pastries and cakes. I estimated that there are about 12 varieties with both the individual portion dished onto a small plate or glass or the slice cakes and tarts.
There were the citrus and berry tarts, chocolate tarts and cakes, creme brulee, jelly and macarons. We couldn’t decide which too have as such we got one of every kind to share.
My favourite is the Passionfruit Tart and Banana Caramel Cake found the least favour with me.
There is also a station of Churros, Waffles and the famous Scones of Regent Singapore which is listed as one of the best in Singapore. I didn’t like the Churros. I thought scones was good but isn’t as excellent as I thought it would be. Especially, when I compared it with my favourite scones from TWG.
At the weekend afternoon tea at Tea Lounge of Regent Singapore, they have provided a range of sauce and jams for the pastries. I was glad that they provided clotted cream for the scones. And I am surprised to find Lemon Curd. The rest was relatively expected.
To add on for varieties, Nonya Kueh were found at the table of the weekend afternoon tea at Tea Lounge of Regent Singapore too.
And there is my favourite ice cream with Mango Sorbet and Chocolate flavour and Chng Teng. I felt both of these were absolute delight to the palate.
After having the desserts, we were at our stomach were at 50% capacity. There are some option of starters and salads.
The more interesting savouring option is as always from the “live” station. The 2 young Chefs manning the station were so fun. They paused and posed for a photo. These young chef dishes the Laksa and the Congee.
At the live station, it was mainly an Asian affairs with Chicken satay. This is a popular item. And there were Steamed Chicken (which was bland) and Chilli Crab Sauce with Mantou. Other items include the deep-fried chicken which was far too salty, roasted beef which I enjoyed. And my favourite food at this section is the Salmon Confit with Yuzu Sauce and Sesame Seed. This was finger-licking good.
I am not a Laksa fan but I thought it was delish. The spice were moderately added and it wasn’t too oily.
I skipped the Dim Sum totally as these doesn’t look appetising to me. Anyway, the choices were interesting but classic. These choices are usually appealing to the masses.
Cheese was also provided at the weekend afternoon tea at Tea Lounge of Regent Singapore. There were 4 types of cheese; Cheddar, Blue Cheese, Brie and one other hard cheese which I can’t remember the name.
If one like Japanese food, could turned to the Sushi. But I would choose to keep the Sushi the next time. Personally, I didn’t think it worth the calories.
Lastly, the most important aspect of an afternoon tea is Tea itself. At the weekend Afternoon Tea At Tea Lounge Of Regent Singapore, they provided almost 20 tea selection with choices of black tea, oolong tea, green tea, fruit tisanes and herbal tea. If tea isn’t your kind of drink, diner could opt for coffee with decaffeinated coffee as an option and chocolate drink. Both are served in iced or hot. Each diner could order 2 drinks at the afternoon tea buffet.
And in case you are curious about my tea option; I have the Shanghai Rose while my aunt has the Lemon Mango Tango.
We like the selection at the weekend Afternoon Tea At Tea Lounge Of Regent Singapore. There was a good mixed of food and most importantly, a good range of desserts. And of course, at every buffet, expect hits and misses.
The bottom line is that nonetheless we enjoyed at the weekend Afternoon Tea At Tea Lounge Of Regent Singapore.
