Tea Cosy at Plaza Singapura is one of them. It serves a pretty decent afternoon high tea at $29.95 for two, from 2.30pm to 6pm daily.
The Tea Cosy Supreme High Tea Set ($29.95 for two, $19.95 for one) comes with seafood or non-seafood items, sweets (choice of two English Scones or three Miniature Cakes) and a beverage (English Breakfast Tea, Coffee or Lemonade).
If there are two of you having the high tea set, you can opt for both the seafood and non-seafood items, which will give you Grilled Prawn Cocktail, Foie Gras Taster, Turkey Ham Crostini, Smoked Salmon Crostini, Parmesan Toast, Baked Mushroom, and Crispy Duck Crostini; and for desserts, two English Scones and three Miniature Cakes.
It sounds like a lot of food, but it is actually manageable as they are served in bite-sized portions.
If the high tea set doesn’t appeal to you, Tea Cosy has an ala carte menu which starts at appetisers like Tea Cosy Decadent Salad ($16.95) and Baked Mushrooms ($9.95); through sandwiches like Smoked Salmon Toasts ($13.95) and Beef Steak Burger ($13.95); then up to pastas and main courses like Braised Duck Pasta ($14.95) and Miso Dory ($18.95); and end off with desserts like Cupcakes ($3.85) and English Scones ($6.95).
The food is nothing special, but for a nice, quiet and relatively affordable afternoon tea in Orchard road, Tea Cosy at level five of Plaza Singapura is the place to go.
