Fans of Fresh Fruits Lab, listen up! Come July, Fresh Fruits Lab – one of our favourite cafes in the East of Singapore – introduces its all-new laboratory-themed afternoon tea set at only S$19 per person on Tuesdays to Fridays from 3pm to 5pm.
There are many times that call for a pleasant afternoon tea – with family, with friends, with our loved ones. And our favourite cafe in the East tugged our heartstrings with its latest afternoon tea rendition that is as affordable as it is delicious. And photogenic, of course.
If you are one who can do without the finesse of a five-star hotel’s afternoon tea, and all you really want is a casual session of bite-sized snacks and desserts with the company of your favourite people, then this tea for two (or more) is perfect for you. We had a glimpse of the very adorable set – think gazpacho served in erlenmeyer flask, test tubes that are filled with orange sable, and tiramisu that sits atop a tripod and gauze mat.
Here’s introducing Fresh Fruits Lab’s laboratory-themed afternoon tea at S$19 per person.
Few restaurants in Singapore are as romantic and artistic as Arteastiq Boutique Tea House is. Pun is intended, but you might derive from its name that this restaurant is all about art and tea. They call it the “art of teasing”, but we think there is so much more.
It is the kind of sexiness you would associate with a date night, or a regal dining affair for the high society. Arteastiq sits at a quiet corner of Mandarin Gallery, and scores for its accessible location and wide space. Tasteful interior design with predominant monochrome furniture, exotic chandeliers and sporadic stalks of white flowers, chi-chi ambience with French jazz, an art studio, and a robust menu of artisanal teas and all kinds of wondrous food dishes.
We sampled the new menu recently, and we have been containing our excitement of sharing them since. Which is why we say Arteastiq is more than just tea and art jamming, because the food menu is nothing short of impressive. From an assortment of appetisers and contemporary mains that are created with love, to a selection of desserts that are reinterpreted with modern takes, the new menu packs a punch and gives us even more reasons to return to Arteastiq.
Arteastiq is undisputedly among our favourite dining concepts along Orchard Road, and here are our picks from its new menu:
A romantic dinner, live band belting out love ballads, friendly staff taking polaroid photos for precious keepsake – this was our Valentine’s Day dinner at O’Coffee Club.
Many people know O’Coffee Club as a popular cafe chain where they can hang out with friends over drinks and food. But what many people do not know is that O’Coffee Club is also a place to go for special occasions. We celebrated Valentine’s Day at O’Coffee Club’s first outlet in Holland Village, and the night marks another chapter in our journey.

What is there not to love about high tea? As a fancy afternoon affair that is synonymous with decadent treats and heart-to-heart talks, it is beneficial for one’s weary soul.
Unknown to many, TWG Tea Salon is a homegrown brand that has won over the taste buds of many tea and dessert lovers. Its growing reputation as a tea institution that offers a variety of exclusive and interesting tea blends and tea-infused delicacies has cemented its popularity in the local food scene. At first glance, you might be put off by the exquisite interior of the restaurant but TWG does offer affordable brunch sets. In addition, the friendly demeanour of its service staff and beautiful counter display of cakes and sweet pastries make it hard to resist the idea of dining with them.
I love afternoon tea. It combines three of my favourite things – yummy desserts, a nice pot of tea, and catching up with good friends.
I’ve always heard about the afternoon tea at Chihuly Lounge, Ritz-Carlton Millenia, but for some reason, I never had the chance to try it. When I finally went there recently for an afternoon indulgence, I must say that they did not disappoint – if anything, exceeded expectations.
Having afternoon tea is one of my all time favourite activities. What’s there not to like when you get to have delicate finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones, savoury treats and pretty desserts?
When you ask people to recommend a place for a luxury afternoon tea, most people would probably mention The Courtyard at Fullerton Hotel Singapore.
“I think I am in love,” I told my dining companion when I saw the amazing éclairs from Chihuly Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore.
Chihuly Lounge is currently having a Summer Weekend Afternoon Tea (2 June to 26 August 2012), and in addition to the assortment of canapes, finger sandwiches, and scones; executive pastry chef Terence Pang has specially created 12 different éclairs for this occasion.
From the popular chocolate éclair, to the cute gummy bear éclair, to the irresistible passion fruit & mango éclair – I love them all!
It’s really interesting that whenever I blog about a certain cuisine/food, I get a lot more traffic. After blogging for so many years, I guess it becomes a part of me, and I usually have a pretty good hunch of things that people like the most. It’s really not that difficult to spot future food trends.
