Tea Lounge Afternoon Tea Buffet

Taking tea is an age-old ritual. The glorious delight of fine tea, delicate morsels and engaging conversations will never go out of fashion.  A few months back, A was in town for a vacation. Being dutiful hosts, J and I brought her to Regent’s Tea Lounge, one Singapore’s up-market spots for splendid afternoon tea buffet.

The quality and variety was as good as I remembered the first time I visited. Unlike some hotel afternoon tea buffets where the emphasis are placed on savouries and desserts only, Tea Lounge offers much, much more. Here you’ll be spoilt for choice- luxurious caviars, finger sandwiches, freshly baked pastries, gorgeous cakes, terrific scones, plus a selection of salads to (somewhat) ease the guilt from a self-induced food coma.

It wasn’t easy picking out a favourite out of the lovely desserts, but I think the superbly moist Red Velvet, delicate white chocolate raspberry mousse cake, and beautifully caramelised Creme Brulee stood out.

Once again, Tea Lounge has succeeded in leaving a memorable impression. So much so that I’ve made reservations to take my parents and sister for an afternoon of feasting.

      The seasoning is spot on! But they dont have it anymore 🙁 The menu has changed and I am going to do another post on the new spread by the end of the week.
