Hi-tea buffet at Goodwood Park Hotel
Bite size smoked beef and foie gras sandwiches! Luxurious or what! Both taste very full-bodied and rich (no pun intended!).
I guess you only see mango and prawn croissant in Singapore and not anywhere in Europe. Such a local yet delicious variation!
The fried stuff are nothing to shout about, but the potato balls are nice though, crispy on the other, soft and rich inside!
I can't count how many failed Creme Brulee I have tried in Singapore, but this one is the real thing! The caramelised sugar on the surface is thin and crispy while the custard itself is simply eggy!
Scone is a must in English hi-tea, and whipped cream and jam are must for the scones! The scones are really rich and sweet, but the whipped cream magically makes it "lighter"!
Not really a cake fan myself, but the chocolate cakes really show you the meaning of "Death by Chocolate"!
Didn't really like the light Prince of Kandy tea that I ordered initially, but this Cafe Panna is real good! Fragrant and strong espresso with just a little dash of whipped cream!
