Weekend high-teas is a popular activity that many Singaporeans love to indulge in.
And without any advance reservations, you are unlikely to get a table in the more popular restaurants.
One lazy weekend, both me and Beebops woke up rather late, he said that since we are already kind of over our lunch time, why not just head out for High Tea instead.
After many phone calls later, we managed to get a table at Rendezvous Hotel’s Straits Cafe for our high tea.
There was quite a sizeable spread of food items ranging from salads to seafood to sashimi.
There were a couple of sections where you can make your own Popiah.
And try not to be too over-zealous with your fillings else it would end up being quite a mouthful like mine. : -p
There is also a counter which you can order Laksa and the chef would prepare it for you.
As you can see below it was awarded the award like 10years ago, but trust me it is still one of the better buffet laksa that I have tried.
The laksa gravy has just the right quantity of coconut milk and the light consistency so that you don’t get sick of the gravy half way through your bowl.
All I can say the only thing missing is the cockles!
Order a cup of tea when you are almost done with the spread.
How can we not have the durian puree desserts when the glass sticker is “screaming” right next to us.
Delicious! So much that I took 3 despite a very full stomach.
It isn’t overly sweet and it manages to retain that bittersweet taste that durians naturally possess.
The high-tea spread honestly isn’t very big but I must say that whatever they had there was of quality and tasted good.
If my memory serves me well, it costs about $25 per person after a credit card discount. At that price, it left us feeling very satisfied and very full.Rendezvous Grand Hotel – Straits Cafe
