Pan Pacific Afternoon Tea

PAN PACIFIC SINGAPORE

One of the hallmarks of afternoon tea is undoubtedly the elegant crockery and dish-ware involved. Without the sophisticated pastry tiers and dainty cutlery, high tea wouldn’t be what it is. Pan Pacific Singapore has spiced things up a little at their high tea buffet (S$48++ for one pax, S$88++ for two pax) with a rad tea stand modelled after the iconic seating pods at the hotel’s Atrium.

Of course, a stunning tea stand would be pointless if the food isn’t on par. Thankfully, that won’t be the case at Pan Pacific Singapore. From savoury bites such as Japanese-inspired Wagyu Beef Teriyaki to sweet treats with the likes of Coffee Walnut Praline, this is a high tea buffet you’ll never forget.
