Let’s face it, having afternoon tea in Singapore in a nice comfortable setting such as a hotel doesn’t come cheap. A few dainty morsels perched on a three-tier tray plus a few cups of tea would normally set you back by about $30 – $40 per pax. So I was quite shocked to discover that Grand Copthorne’s afternoon tea costs only $38++ in total for TWO pax, with free flow coffee/tea!
Look at this afternoon tea set, comprising fried chicken wings, dumplings, tuna croissants, salmon sandwiches, chicken pies, cakes, macarons, éclairs and nyonya kueh, it’s quite substantial for afternoon tea right??? I did a quick poll of some of my friends and they guessed that this would cost $40 per pax! Granted the nibbles may not be the most expensive of items (ie not foie gras etc), but still, I really do think this is a good deal.
