I admit, I’m definitely a fan of High tea, not because it looks atas, but because there are different varieties of food available for high tea, so I get to taste different things at one time, without over eating haha.
So just before the Chinese New Year, I visited The Clifford Pier for the legendary high tea that I’ve been wanting to try (Getting a reservation was difficult though, have to reserve a few weeks in advance:O)
The high tea have a combination of sweet and savory treats, which was what attracted me.
A pretty good selection of teas & coffee, free flow.
Prefer local drinks? Sure, there’s even teh tarik available.
First up was the Kong Bak Bao! OMG one of my favorite food, which made it a really nice start to the high tea. On the same plate there were the chili crab fried mantou! Double the happiness :p
The 3-tier high tea set was served shortly, I felt happy already looking at the different pastries 😀
The butter, kaya, chili sauce, pineapple vanilla jam were served together in a plate.
The first tier were the scones (Classic & Red date Longan). It was recommended that the Classic scones be paired with the kaya, & the red date longan with the pineapple vanilla jam.
The 2nd tier consisted of all the savory treats!
One of my favorite: Chili Bak Kwa Jam on Savaory egg tart, with the sliced pork on top as you can see!
On the same tier we also have the Carrot cake with XO chilli and scrambled egg.
Kueh Pie Tee, so basically a lot of familiar local flavors on the plate!
Last but not least, at the bottom tier we have the sweet treats! As it was near CNY, you see alot of ‘Prosperous’ looking treats over here.Personally I only like the water chestnut jelly, maybe the red velvet and cheesecake on this plate. The love letter was turning soft already but the time we had it:(
So I think their savory treats are better, compared to the sweet treats, based on personal preference of course. 🙂
