D9 Cakery High Tea Buffet @ Hilton Singapore

After a busy week of work it's always good to take a break and wind down with your family and friends. We strolled pass the Hilton's lobby with a showcase of D9 Cakery's handcrafted cakes by Executive Pastry Chef Cindy Khoo and entered the restaurant with a long table displaying an array of infused TWG iced teas. This was certainly a perfect way to start the weekend! As Lau Tzu says, "Tea is the elixir of life". This is no ordinary high tea! The buffet line-up presents over 3

Afternoon Tea at Shangri-La Lobby Lounge

There are days when I’m feeling for an afternoon snack and I want to glam it up and enjoy my afternoon at somewhere nice and sophisticated. But most high-teas in hotels come with a hefty price tag, which is enough to make me run the other way. Shangri-La, famed for hosting a “special event” for the Kim-Trump Summit, is bringing you an affordable high-tea set for 2 at just $38++ on weekdays and $42++ on weekends at its Lobby Lounge. This tea set, unlike any other, features a w

Brasserie Fritz, Bukit Bintang

Whenever we think of High Tea sessions, two things come to mind. It's either a hearty buffet at a hotel, or a swanky three-tier tea set. When we were invited to Brasserie Fritz, we weren't sure what to expect. But as soon as we walked into the building, we could tell it would be a swanky kind of high tea. The kind where you sit down and get pampered for a minimum of two hours. And Brasserie Fritz definitely delivered just that. I'm not typically one for high tea, as desserts

High Tea at The Regent Hotel, Singapore

On one very fancy afternoon, we went to Regent Hotel near Orchard for what seemed to be a promising High Tea. This was my second time ever attending an event like this and I was extremely excited, especially after hearing that the Tea Lounge had recently paired up with one of my favourite coffee places in Singapore - Common Man Coffee Roasters, and was looking forward to some delicious coffee. The menu was plentiful, offering ranges of coffee and tea, both single-origin and b

Chan Yupa Tearoom, Asok Bangkok

High tea is no longer only accessible to the ladies of leisure because it's available through plenty of cafes and tea rooms nowadays. In Bangkok, you don't have to search high and low for it because Chan & Yupa Tearoom will pop up on Instagram for its gorgeous tea sets and ambience. I'll bet people have weddings here because it's such a breathtaking venue in the middle of Asok that makes you feel like you've been transported to a whole different world. Save for the occasional

Ante, One Utama: New Teatime Menu

By Carmel Dominic When foodievstheworld was invited to review Ante’s brand new high-tea menu at their One Utama branch, we were expecting a three-tiered stand of cakes, assorted finger sandwiches, pastries, scones with jams and maybe some in-house baked cookies accompanied with a pot of tea. But, to our pleasant surprise, this spread was entirely different. There were only 3 plates in front us and for a fraction of a second, I was skeptical about the menu. One plate held Fren
