Sofitel Singapore City Centre 1864 lobby bar – Elegant afternoon tea with Croiffles!

Media Invite

What is a croiffle did you say? Croiffle or Croffle is a croissant waffle hybrid, and I say whoever created this match made in heaven is a genius. It’s not commonly found in Singapore and indeed, the revamped afternoon tea at Sofitel Singapore City Centre’s 1864 lobby bar was where I tasted this wonderful creation. Think buttery croissant but in the shape of a waffle, so it’s a little bit denser with more bite. And that’s not all, Sofitel 1864’s creation comes topped with Truffle Camembert. The addition of this buttery cheese elevates the croiffle into sheer decadence.

And you can sample this croissant waffle at Sofitel 1864’s revamped afternoon tea. The set comprises the following items:

  • Baked Scone with Rum and Dried Fruits
  • Classic Scone with Clotted Cream and Bonne Maman Marmalade
  • Matcha Azuki Genoise
  • Topinambour and Jivara Chocolate Tart Verrine
  • Mini Croissant Waffle with Truffled Camembert
  • Kueh Pie Tee with Crab Meat and Caviar Creme
  • Baked Frittata with Octopus and Smoked Cayenne Aioli
  • Atlantic Smoked Salmon Sandwich with Fennel Pesto
  • Assorted Praline and Macaron

Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel’s Crossroads Cafe has recently launched new items to its menu. As the name suggests, Crossroads Cafe is located at at the crossroads of Orchard Road.

HARRIS Resort Waterfront Batam–Fun resort hotel with lots to do for the whole family!

HARRIS Resort Waterfront Batam - Family Room

If you have been following me on Instagram, you would have seen me spamming a lot of Batam pictures on Instastories. Yes, I spent a grand total of 4 days in Batam! It was my first time in Batam and it was great. Truth be told, I have been wanting to go to Batam for the longest time. However most people have already been to Batam at least once so it was difficult to find an enthusiastic partner. So I was really happy when I was contacted by HARRIS Hotels to check out two of their properties : HARRIS Resort Waterfront Batam and HARRIS Hotel Batam Center. (Promo code available right at the end of the post!) (Also win a free night’s stay at HARRIS WATERFRONT by entering my contest)

Or if you are a true blue crab lover, you will be making multiple trips to the crab station for Chilli Crab with Mantou, Black Pepper Crab and Salted Egg Yolk Crab. When I was there, I witnessed this table of dinners tucking into crab after crab, you won’t believe how high the discarded shells were piled, any higher and the shells might have toppled to the floor!

There’s also a DIY mocktail bar, a first for Spice Brasserie. Concoct your own mocktail from a selection of sodas and flavoured syrups such as Yuzu, Mango and Blueberry. Complete the drink with toppings such as lychee and sour plum.

Oh while you’re there, do not miss out the desserts. There is a surprisingly large variety local desserts such as Durian Pengat with Sticky Rice, Pulut Hitam, Kueh Kueh, Beancurd sheets and barley, and Cheng Tng. I usually avoid such desserts when I am at other hotel buffets as the one or two Asian desserts provided are just cursory inclusions. But the ones here are legit and worth the stomach space!

Seafood themed buffets don’t normally come cheap, but if you mainly want seafood, you might want to check out Spice Brasserie.

Saturday / Sunday Lunch : $48 per Adult | $24 per Child
Friday – Sunday Dinner : $58 per Adult | $29 per Child

Scroll down for more pictures of the food and happy diners.
