I adore high tea and unfortunately there aren’t many choices where I live in California.
So whenever I visit Singapore, I have to have high tea at least once.
My friend made a reservation at Lime Restaurant at Parkroyal Hotel on Pickering Street.
Their high tea set starts at $44++ for one serving of coffee or TWC tea.
For unlimited servings of tea/coffee it’s $50++.
Not pictured are the scones which to be honest were a bit disappointing – the sides were too hard but luckily the inside was still nice.
This was the one I was most curious about – “an expression of Nasi Lemak”. Nasi Lemak, if you’ve not heard of it, is a coconut rice dish usually served with fried fish and peanuts, egg, cucumber and a really good sambal chili. This ball was a good representation of all the flavours of Nasi Lemak. The rice ball was coated with peanuts and had a dollop of sambal on top
Their cute little carrot cake with a white chocolate carrot on top. The carrot cake was nice and moist.
There was also a yummy Peking duck profiterole, a coconut pandan tart, a chocolate peanut butter cup with Gianduja chantilly cream. As well as some open faced sandwiches which weren’t anything to rave about.
But my favourite was probably the passion fruit meringue tart which unfortunately I didn’t get a good photo of. Funny thing is that I’m not really a fan of passion fruit but I loved the refreshing tartness of the mousse which was silky smooth and topped with a perfectly light meringue. And the pastry was just the right thickness and firmness.
High tea and good company made for a delightful afternoon.
