How are you surviving Phase 2 (Heightened Alert)? We’re about two weeks away from the end of this mini circuit breaker.
The good news is that the government has announced that further tightening of measures is not required at the moment. Also, Singapore residents can look forward to a more detailed update on 31 May via the next multi-ministry task force press conference.
But at the time of writing, we’re still unable to dine out. Most of us are sticking to cooking at home, food takeaways, or using delivery services. Some of us may also have been forced to cancel that high tea appointment thanks to the latest COVID-19 measures.
But fret not as hotels are bringing to you their high tea selections right to your doorstep.
#1: The Capitol Kempinski Hotel
Price: from S$38
At an affordable price, you get to savour a 3-course afternoon tea session from the comforts of home. Expect local creations like chicken rice arancini and classic scones with cranberry-flavoured ones. The set will also include high-quality TWG teabags.
Order here and pick up at 15 Stamford Road or opt for free delivery if you spend a minimum of S$60.
#2: Shangri-La Singapore
Price: from S$68
The Rose Veranda from Shangri-La Singapore presents a takeaway high tea set for two at just S$68. You can also add on a bottle of Nyetimber Classic Cuvée for S$98 (discounted price). We think the strawberry lobster slaw sandwich and foie gras tart with granny smith apple and candied ginger would be worth a taste.
Complimentary delivery is only available for purchases above S$200. Or you can choose to self-collect to save on that S$20.
#3: Regent Singapore
Price: from S$96
Book your high tea set from Regent Singapore if you want to sink your teeth on roasted Angus beef with mustard, or reward yourself with some apricot creamy cheesecake. Raspberry white chocolate macarons, yuzu and dark chocolate cookies will go very well with the premium Gryphon tea provided.
You can either choose the 2-pax or 4-pax set from this link.
#4: Mandarin Oriental
The June holidays have officially started, and families looking to enjoy some time together indoors can consider this afternoon tea set from Mandarin Oriental. Priced at S$98, the quantity is just right for two adults and two children. There’s a good combination of meats, greens, and sweet bites for everyone.
Place your order at least two hours before and call +65 6885 3500 if you need some quick answers to your burning questions.
#5: Intercontinental Singapore
Price: from S$110
Take your pick from Intercontinental Singapore’s multi-tiered collection of sweets and savouries if you want variety. Lychee coulis, laksa prawn quiche, and hojicha craquelin choux are some of the items you can look forward to. Pay an extra S$50 if you want a Taittinger Brut Reserve Half Bottle to accompany your taste buds.
