The hubs and I recently went on a triple date afternoon tea session with our fellow foodie friends at 10 SCOTTS, located at the lobby level of Grand Hyatt Singapore. Phoebe, Elaine and Daniel were the first few people we befriended back when I started blogging about food in 2010! Omg we go a long way back and all of us are happily married now. 2016 seems to be the year of afternoon teas for me! Anyway, I’m gonna eat as much as I can before I pop really soon! Wheeee! 😀
The first time I had afternoon tea at 10 SCOTTS was sometime around the end of 2014 and that was with a group of mummies from my EDD group, as well as some of their babies. It’s quite an ideal place for babies and young children even though the number of baby chairs might be limited, there are low couch seats which are pretty comfortable and you can simply have your little one seated next to you.
Let me just say that I highly recommend 10 SCOTTS’ afternoon tea because of the fact that the food items are REPLENISHABLE and they are served on two-tiered stands, which make everything seem so much more aesthetically pleasing. While the coffee and tea are refilled with hot water upon request, you are not obliged to stick to the same beverage throughout your afternoon tea session.
There is a double-seating policy at 10 SCOTTS which does not only apply to weekends but weekdays as well. Also, afternoon tea is slightly pricier on weekends.
Besides the replenishable items from the two-tiered stand, there is also a buffet line of cold cuts, main course and desserts! Aren’t you excited already?! The menu changes on a weekly rotational basis, so you will always have the chance to try something different on your subsequent visits.
Cold cuts, cheese and bread.
A humble assortment of Sushi
Hot savoury live station featuring one type of main course.
During our visit, it was Peppered beef fillet with brandy and green peppercorn sauce gravy. Tiger prawns and chicken fillet are offered on other weeks.
The freshly baked Raisin scones from the buffet line were warm and crumbly, but only if they were more buttery! Besides clotted cream and raspberry jam, 10 SCOTTS also serve their scones with kaya jam!
Smoked salmon wrap with avocado, cream cheese and dill.
Borsch (cold beetroot soup) with sour cream foam.
Curry fish balls.
Mustard leaf rolls with rice noodle, tofu and laksa leaf.
Crab cakes with remoulade sauce. These were da bomb and we each had quite a few servings. I think misterchewy ate like four crab cakes.
Caramel choux buns.
Cassis yoghurt mousse in shooter glass.
