Tea Lounge by Regent Hotel has always been one of my favourite places for afternoon tea. I can’t remember all the wonderful sessions I had but it sure was kind of the staffs at Regent to invite me back to try out their improved afternoon tea buffet.
Do note that their afternoon tea buffets are only available on the weekends while their popular English high tea and their three-tier stands are intricately prepared on weekdays. I strongly recommend that you make reservations many months before the actual date, especially their weekend high tea buffets just to play safe and secure a place.
Tucked away from the grandeur lobby, Tea Lounge is sure to be found. Fanciful desserts and savoury treats all waiting dished out by pastry chefs and only to be enjoyed by people who loves them. Arm chairs and sofas by the tables with tea sets already in place and be ready to be greeted by a smile or two on the staff face!
I like to start my afternoon with something to sip and I love the floral muscatel touch of the Regent Blend. If you’re someone like me, who loves trying out something new on every visit then feel free to do so! May I also suggest their Shanghai Rose with a hinge of lychee sweetness to you? Or just stick to the class Imperial Earl Grey which worked more than just words could describe.
You see stations of desserts and all things sweet on one side, heavy dishes and whatsoever Japanese on the other and savoury finger food like your sandwiches and cheese in between. You can have it his way or her way but I like to start MY WAY, which always mean I’ll say “Desserts come first!”
Scones are a must have for me in any afternoon tea. I mean what is afternoon tea without something buttery to spread my clotted cream upon?
I always held in esteem of Tea Lounge’s renditions. I was a little disappointed about my previous experience with them and I walked away that very day feeling baffled as to why. Did something bad happen in the kitchen that day? I really don’t know. All I know was their scones weren’t quite the same as I used to had.
Good things are almost always worth a second chance and I very happy to say Regent’s scones are still the best! It’s little wonder why good things often come in pair. Just pair awesome scones with dollops of good quality clotted cream and I bet you will make rooms for more!
I think I will let the photos do the talking instead. After all, pictures are more than just a thousand words especially if we are talking about desserts!
Everything would have turn out great if only their Creme Brulee weren’t as much of overly burned sugar glaze but I believe there’s always room for improvements. The assorted macarons were great the best was their Vanilla & Winter Berry Panna Cotta which I couldn’t stopped singing praises to it. I am fine with or without good service but I can always appreciate a smile on the servers’ face and that is something I always see on their faces.
I was told that I would always make a request on certain dishes if I ever make another reservations and that is definitely a plus! So enough sharing and enough commenting. Will I recommend to my friends Tea Lounge’s new and improved weekend high tea buffet? Definitely I will and I know some of my friends and tea partners alike would be keen to have tea sometimes…
