Best Scones in Singapore

After having eaten my way through so many scones in Singapore, I think it is fitting that I should perhaps do a compilation of all the places I have been to have scones in Singapore. Click on the links for an in-depth review the respective cafes/restaurants. I shall rate only the top 5 scones places.

Okay, where to find the best scones in Singapore…..drum roll please!

The BEST scones in Singapore award goes to….. Fullerton Hotel The Courtyard !!!!

No. 2 : Regent Hotel Lobby Lounge

Regent Hotel’s scones are also damn good. The best part about Fullerton Hotel and Regent Hotel’s scones is that not only are the scones good in their own right, they also provide clotted cream! You’re missing out if you haven’t tried scones with clotted cream!

No. 3 : The Knolls at Capella Sentosa

No. 4 : Oriole Cafe

No. 5 : TWG Tea @ Ion

 

No. 6 : Shangri-La Rose Verandah (sorry picture still pending…)

No. 7 : Dome Cafe @ Shaw House

Afternoon Tea at Chihuly Lounge Ritz Carlton Singapore – Part 2

As promised, here are the rest of the photos from my Afternoon High Tea buffet at Ritz Carlton. You know what, I’m so impressed by the Afternoon Tea spread, I think I’m going to make another reservation for afternoon tea when the Partner returns. (That’s not to say that I’m going to be the one paying….)

Chihuly Lounge Ritz Carlton Singapore The Chihuly Lounge has a very bright and airy feel to it due to the glass walls and high ceiling. I love those big sofas but they are reserved for the big groups. Couples can also have the comfy grey sofa type seats.

Chihuly Lounge TablesWe had to sit at the tables because there were only 3 of us. The chairs are unfortunately not very comfortable because they are made for tall people. My back was unable to reach the back of the seat properly. But there is a trick to doing this. Ask the waitstaff for one of the cushions from the sofa seat, and the chair is instantly transformed!

Chihuly Blueberry Iced TeaYou can select a whole list of drinks from their menu as well. And when you are finished with your drink, you can order another one as many times as you like. I like ordering their iced teas. It’s almost like an artform. In the picture above, I ordered blue-berry iced-tea. It comes in 3 glasses rather than 1. One glass has the blue-berry concentrate, 1 glass has the tea, and 1 glass contains iced-tea ice cubes! How unique is that? The waitstaff then pour the tea out for you. Here I’ve stopped them from doing so to take the pictures.

Afternoon Tea at Chihuly Lounge Ritz Carlton Singapore

I’ll say it upfront, I am in love with the afternoon tea at the Ritz Carlton! The Ritz Carlton has got to have one of the best afternoon high teas in Singapore! It’s amazing I haven’t discovered this place until now. I am in awe of the creativity of the chefs at the Chihuly lounge. They must have put in a lot of thought into their beautiful dessert displays. Thank you. For this alone I am sure I will return for a second meal here. Scroll down to see pictures of the tempting desserts at Chihuly Lounge.

Chihuly Pink Lemonade Macaron Yes this is indeed a colourful macaron. They’ve put the pink lemonade flavouring separately so you don’t get a soggy macaron by the time you get to the desserts.

Chihuly Strawberry and rhubarb crumble

This looks so much like the seaside! It’s not sand you see, it’s brown sugar! And that’s strawberry and rhubarb crumble in the tiny bucket.

Chihuly Chocolate mousse cakeChcolate Tri – Chocolate mousse cake made out to look like little sail boats
