Ritz Carlton Summer Afternoon Tea 2013

I’ve been a fan of Ritz Carlton’s Afternoon Tea for the longest time and after my cousin asked me to recommend me great places to have afternoon tea in Singapore, I started to have cravings again. Yes I know the last time I had afternoon tea at Ritz Carlton was but a mere 6 months ago, but for an afternoon tea lover like me, that just feels like decades ago. Besides, back in December, it was the Winter afternoon tea menu that we tried. It’s Summer already for god’s sakes!

For the uninitiated, Ritz Carlton Singapore’s Chihuly Lounge changes their afternoon tea menu four times a year to suit the four seasons. It’s all about getting inspiration from the produce of the season as well as the weather of course. And what better way to celebrate summer than to have a Mediterranean theme for the Summer Afternoon Tea. (I have a good mind to ask Four Seasons Hotel if their afternoon tea is inspired after the four seasons as well, ha!)

The Mediterranean afternoon tea theme is best showcased by their desserts, so let me first tempt you with the dessert pictures. Don’t get me wrong though, I was a good girl and ate the savouries first before hitting the dessert table. Actually, I’m the sort who has to have the main course first before dessert. And I can’t just have desserts as the main meal. I’ll feel as if I haven’t had lunch/dinner, even if I’m busting from the cake I just consumed. Interestingly, as long as I’ve had the mains first, I can go on to dessert and back to savoury again, if we’re talking about a buffet setting. Smile

Ritz Carlton Afternoon Tea - Shell Shaped Macarons with Olive Butter (2)

Shell Shaped Macarons with Olive Butter

These were really delicious macarons! Light and airy meringue casings sandwiched together with an interesting olive butter. There was just a tad too much olive butter to my liking but otherwise, the macarons tasted fantastic. Neither were they overloaded with sugar, like how most macarons are. You know what’s the best part? You can eat 10 if you want to because it’s a buffet!! Probably the most value-for-money macarons ever!

Ritz Carlton Afternoon Tea - Seaweed Cake

Seaweed Cake

I don’t usually eat cakes with fondant, but these were too good to resist. Aren’t they cute? I’ve yet to come across a seaweed cake before. This tasted like a somewhat heavier than usual sponge cake with seaweed flakes all over. Delicious!

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.
