Got a chance to finally try out new sweets and treats for an afternoon at Antidote hi tea at Fairmont Hotel Singapore, with a set menu of the twg tea choices to choose from. Good location to visit, located near city hall mrt, and with an easy hourly parking at raffles building. We made a last minute reservation for 2, which might have just been lucky considering it was a weekend. The antidote hi tea afternoon set comes with an appetizer followed by 4 layers of cakes and pastries to choose from.
There are 2 afternoon tea sets to choose from – Anti:dote Tea Set or the Original Tea Set, both priced at $45++ per person. Each set comes with a choice of coffee or fine teas from TWG, not many tea selections to be exact, all poured into the pink tea pots you see below.
Unfortunately, the cake layers you on the top isn’t the signature antidote hi tea selections. As disappointing as it sounds, out of the few guests in the lounge, our dessert set had to be replaced with cakes from random shops as they “ran out” of their signature desserts (the top layer). So instead, they replaced the top layers and gave a leggo dessert, which actually was even better. Look how pretty it is.
The other 3 layers of sandwiches and scones were satisfying and filling, portions are not too mini. Overall, the service and the display of the hi tea set was satisfying and very unique to start with, considering missing out on their signature desserts. One thing to give a thumbs down for would be the seatings, which is in the lounge of the hotel, facing the traffic outside. Other than that, here’s a photo of how fairly satisfies I was.
