This is the second time I visit, because I saw they server afternoon tea so I thought I would give it a try.
I went with a friend this time around 4pm, we ordered the pink afternoon tea sets and I always enjoy afternoon tea because I can try out many different types at once. For tea we got Marco Polo and Vert Provence, I loved the Marco Polo – it is a fruity black tea and tastes great with or without milk.
The tea set included the following:
Cucumber, roast beef. coriander cream – like the sesames on the bun, but it is a little dry
Smoked salmon and wasabi cream – wasabi and salmon just cannot go wrong
Chicken, apple. country ranch dressing – apple added crunch and freshness to the richness
Scones served with cream and jam – simple apricot jam
Raspberry Soufflé – tastes more like blueberry to me
Mini Lemon Tart – tried this before and still like it lots
Mini Opéra – I had this at Ganache before, Ganache is better 🙂
Chocolate mousse – this would is really nothing special
Parfait – plain yogurt with fresh fruit
Pastry chef’s suggestion: Apicot Cinnamon Brownie? (brownie without the chocolate)
If you have a smaller appetite I would suggest going early (2pm) for the purple afternoon tea where you can choose 2 items from each category. The decor and environment is great for afternoon tea, though not all items were outstanding. If I go back next time it would be tea with friend or maybe trying out their bistro menu. :9
