Fullerton Hotel’s revamped Chocolate Buffet at The Courtyard

[Media Invite]

Are you a lover of chocolate? Or desserts? If you are, you will want to check out The Courtyard’s new and improved Chocolate Buffet. It’s not just any o spread of chocolate desserts, new elements have been added to up the excitement factor.

The Chocolate Buffet at The Courtyard

First up, the Chocolate Buffet now offers a small selection of savoury food. Hands up those of you who feel intimidated over the idea of having to plough through a ton of decadent chocolate? We all love chocolate of course, but as adults we also know there is a limit to how much of the same thing we can consume before we reach the dreaded “palate fatigue”. Now, you can take a break from the decadent chocolate items with savouries like Cocoa and Spice-rubbed Baby Pork Ribs or Salmon Mini Quiches. You could also treat it like a light dinner too, if you don’t want the inconvenience of having to separately eat dinner prior to the Chocolate Buffet.

For the serious chocolate lover, you won’t want to miss the Valrhona Tasting Table, where 12 varieties of chocolate in bite-sized coins of varying cocoa percentages are available so that you can savour the chocolate unadulterated.

There is even a made to order plated chocolate dessert at the Live Nitro Station. Here, liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the ingredients such as chocolate sponge, crumble, espuma and meringue, which will be hidden under a chocolate sphere for you to dramatically break open.

Oh, do not miss out on the Hot Chocolate Trolley because that’s what happened to me as it was hidden behind the Live Nitro Station! This is where you can create your own hot chocolate from 6 types of Valrhona chocolate and spices such as cardamom, chilli and anise.

And of course, the actual Chocolate Buffet spread of various desserts using chocolate in one way or another. Think cakes, macarons, tarts, shooters and the chocolate fountain. Scroll down to see more pictures of the spread and cute photos of the toddler stuffing his face with chocolate éclair.

Fullerton Hotel Festive Afternoon Tea

It’s less than 1 week to Christmas! How’s your preparations for Christmas, are you in a festive mood yet with all the malls and streets decked in Christmas baubles? Last week, the Partner and I went to check out Fullerton Hotel’s Festive Afternoon tea and boy was the hotel ready for Christmas or what.

Christmas at Fullerton

A huge Christmas tree and sleight spilling with presents and teddy bears had been placed right at the entrance. And every conceivable pillar had been plastered with red and green hued plants and Christmas Lights. A bubble machine was blowing bubbles from the second floor so it kinda felt like stepping into a winter wonderland with falling bubbles pretending to be snowflakes.

Fullerton Hotel Afternoon Tea at The Courtyard 2014

I love enjoying a spot of afternoon tea but I’ve been neglecting this ritual thanks to the numerous cafes that have been popping up and taking away our attention. Although both activities seem to be similar in nature, ie relax and chit chat over hot drinks, having afternoon tea strikes me as a much more relaxing affair, and usually more hassle free. Apart from the hotels, there are unfortunately no good afternoon tea places if you are looking for the quintessential English afternoon tea. I wonder who will be the next brave entrepreneur who will fill the gap in this market.

Interestingly, although we love the idea of having afternoon tea and think that it’s such a British affair, I’m not so sure if the Brits think of afternoon tea with such fondness. I do know of British colleagues who scoff at the conversation whenever somebody “mistakenly” states that the British like to have afternoon tea. Also, this idea of having afternoon tea only started to come about in the 1800s, when dinner began to be pushed further and further back from lunch time due to the availability of artificial lighting, resulting in a gap that needed to be filled.

Fullerton Hotel serves their afternoon tea via a three-tier afternoon tea set. The set is refillable, meaning you can order more of the items that you like. Each set also comes with 2 choices of tea, and of course unlimited top ups of hot water.

This is the 3 tier afternoon tea set that will be served. The middle row aka the savoury row is always my favourite because I’m a savoury sort of person. I really love these dainty morsels, and they put you n such a good mood when you see them. If only I could have 2 rows of savoury, and just 1 row of sweet treats. Alas, despite 2 rows of cakes, they don’t have a super decadent chocolate cake, which in my world, is mandatory.
