Museo High Tea Buffet

Hope you enjoyed my first post on Museo Restaurant, focussed on the decadent desserts. This post is dedicated to the savouries! This isn’t a very big restaurant, and you shouldn’t expect a buffet line the size of those in Singapore’s Hotel restaurants. What I can say is, most of the dishes served at Museo were really good.

Which is why I had to split my posts into 2, all the food looked so good! When you go to Museo, you’re paying for the lovely ambience and the great views as well. Oh, did I mention that Museo serves unlimited servings of signature teas? You can have as many changes of teas as you want. Most hotel afternoon tea buffets limit you to 2 changes of teas.

Snuck a shot of the bloggers sitting opposite us. Us older folks sat at the tables with proper chairs and left the sofa seats to the youngsters.

Everything is so artistically presented, which I guess is no surprise given that Arteastiq owns Museo.

Museo at Quayside Isle Sentosa

I feel like I need to split this post in half, there are just way toooooo many delicious pictures to post! I have been raving about how lovely Quayside Isle was just a few posts ago, and guess what, I got invited to try out the newly opened Museo Restaurant located there!

I have to admit, getting to Museo, or Quayside Isle for that matter is a pain in the neck. You have to take the Sentosa Express in (the train thing), then you have to wait for Shuttle C (it only comes every half hour), and finally when you reach the stop that is for Quayside Isle, you still have a 3 minute trek across a large field with no shade! The Sentosa Express befuddles me, it costs $3.50 per person. The cost for entry by car on a weekend is $7. Does that mean that as long as I have 2 or more people, I should just drive in?

BUTTTT, having said that, it’s definitely worth a trip to go experience Quayside Isle. There’s nothing quite like it on mainland Singapore. If you like the feel of Robertson Quay, you’ll definitely like Quayside Isle. And if you’re like me, someone who adores Afternoon Tea, you must check out Museo.

I was there for the High Tea Buffet, which costs $48++, or $68++ for free flow of beer. The High Tea Buffet includes free flow of signature teas, which already cost about $10 a pot if you order ala carte! This is one of the few posts where I think I should type less and just let the pictures do the talking.

There are quite a number of seating arrangements, ranging from cross your legs kind of sofa seats that face the seafront, to 2 and 4 seater type tables. Scroll down to see more of those pictures lower in the post.

I’m putting a picture of the desserts up front to lure you in first. This post will be about the desserts while the next post will be of the savouries and teas.

Hotel Intercontinental Weekend High Tea

I think everyone can tell by now that I just love going for afternoon tea and discovering new cafes. One of the afternoon high teas I like is at Hotel Intercontinental’s lobby. It is quite similar to the Rose Verandah at The Shangri-La Hotel and L’Espresso at Goodwood Park Hotel in that it focuses on Western afternoon tea items.

Those who like a huge spread will not like these places, but the novelty of dining in such places is that the setting makes you feel so relaxed, as if you are not in Singapore. If you’ve been to Hotel Intercontinental, you will know that most of the seats are the sofa type, so it was great to be able to lounge on the sofa nibbling away. Between the 2 of us, we had 2 huge sofas plus 2 arm chairs. I sat on each one throughout the course of the high tea. Hee hee!

Jam donut with 2 scones Two types of scones (1 fruit scone and 1 plain scone), plus sugar jam donuts.

HotelIntercontinental made to order sandwichesI think the made to order sandwiches will surely please. I haven’t seen that at any other afternoon tea buffet that I’ve been to. They have a whole selection of condiments like smoked meats, smoked salmon, ham, cucumbers, pickles, caviar cream and a whole lot more I can’t remember now.

HotelIntercontinental chef

Just tell the chef what you want and the type of bread and they will prepare the sandwiches for you.

HotelIntercontinental hot chocolate
