Buffet high teas are somewhat of a common ritual here in Singapore but when we heard of Conrad Lobby Lounge‘s new 4-course Weekend High Tea offering, we can’t help but pop by to experience it ourselves.
Tear away from the hustle and bustle of the city and feel your worries melt away as you step into the lounge. The warm wood panellings and comfortable lounge chairs beckon you to relax and unwind, while the waiting staff tend to your needs. A typical high tea starts off light and simple but at Conrad, you know you’ll be pampered through and through.
An indulgent beginning comes in the form of a refreshing Seafood Platter that features a trio of lobster, prawns, and oysters. A squirt of lime and a dash of hot sauce add a touch of brightness to the fresh ocean catch, whetting your appetite for more. While tucking into poached Boston lobster with brilliantly plump prawns, and slurping down luscious Irish oysters, we thought: can it get any better than this?
Oh yes, yes it can.
The second course presented itself as a myriad of savoury delights and sweet treats. From House Cured Salmon to Orange Curd, Fresh Thyme Flower and Ivory Chocolate Mousse, tiers upon tiers of high tea selections were brought to the table. Feast your eyes on the lobby lounge’s extensive catalogue of Ronnefeldt teas as well, where you can take your pick from calming classics to unique concoctions such as the Orange Pekoe tea.
We delighted in their Baked Mango and Passionfruit Lava and wished we could devour endless servings of their Heirloom Tomato and Marinated Mozzarella Tartlets. Eating your way down the tiers, greet the fresh strawberries and classic chantilly cream at the end to finish off on a sweet note.
Don’t just take our word for it – explore them yourselves and find your favourite out of the list of treats on the menu!
Wrap up the tiered treats with a serving of Conrad’s popular Warm Scones, served alongside mini pots of homemade fig, strawberry jam, and clotted cream. Smear clotted cream onto the warm scones, and have it together with your jam of choice. If there was a way to turn satisfaction into flavour, this comes really close.
On the other hand, get in touch with your swish side when you tuck into their Cheeseboard that offers Brie, Chaume, and Tomme de Savoie alongside a smorgasbord of crackers and dried fruits.
