Letâ€™s face it, having afternoon tea in Singapore in a nice comfortable setting such as a hotel doesnâ€™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 â€“ $40 per pax. So I was quite shocked to discover that Grand Copthorneâ€™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, Ã©clairs and nyonya kueh, itâ€™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.
Baby certainly thinks this is a good deal! Just look at his happy face! Ok I donâ€™t know why he was so happy because he obviously wasnâ€™t eating any of it, I suppose heâ€™s just excited to see the large colourful spread!
Ok have a closer look at the selections. The Partner and I did not have lunch, and this was more than enough to make us full, IN ADDITION to sharing some of the desserts with my parents! And I have to say, most of the items taste pretty good too, yes even the nyonya kueh! My father said â€œgot standardâ€!
The afternoon tea set comes with free flow coffee/tea for 2 pax. The picture shows more because we ordered extra for my parents. Itâ€™s not entirely clear but I think the free flow refers to the normal tea and coffee, ie the iced cafe latte isnâ€™t free flow. Do check with the staff again when you are there.
