Time for Tea....W Hotel Singapore

Hello there,

Welcome back to another afternoon tea post from Tea With Me and Friends - today we have something slightly different for you as we are showcasing an afternoon tea from slightly further afield! We are joined by Sarika, who is a Londoner currently living in Singapore who writes Pearlsbounce blog.

Sarika loves food, wine, stationary and trotting the globe.....and luckily for us she is rather partial to a spot of afternoon tea too.....

Sarika and the Birdcage afternoon tea
W Hotel Singapore
W Singapore housed on Sentosa hosts a modern afternoon tea with their Birdcage W T Time. Seated in the sparkly purple Woo Bar, Birdcages of sweet treats decent to each lounge @ $58 per cage (for 2 persons).


The Savoury beginnings were plentiful with staff continually topping up. 

Favourites were the Tikka Inspired Salmon, Mint & Spice Poppadum, Torched Double Brie, Pickled Cucumber Nigiri and the ultra favourite Chocolate Ganache Foie Gras Tarts - extremely tasty and well balanced, with a sparkling gold leaf topping!

Chocolate Ganache Foie Gras Tarts - W Hotel Singapore
Being a fan of Chilli Crab I was excited by the arrival of The Double Cooked Hen's Egg, Chilli Crab Mantou, tasty they were but slightly over done. 

Softer buns please!

The desserts were decent - but lacking in some scones! 

In replace were some sort of jam fruit filo tartlets which I didn't waste my time trying. The Chocolate tea cup and Fresh Berry Trifle Shot were far more appealing and tasty enough to leave appeased.

All in all a relatively reasonable Afternoon Tea overlooking some prettiness of Singapore with all the dazzle of the W Hotel.

A big thank you to Sarika for sharing her afternoon tea adventures with us - it's great to see what afternoon tea treats are on offer around the world. To find out more about Sarika's travels pop by her blog. And don't forget to watch out for more international posts from Sarika in the future....

Sarika, Rachel and Lorna - It was such a delight to read about the afternoon tea in Singapore. I would definitely miss my traditional scones, but it's always fun to see the different sandwiches and savouries chefs come up with.
