Whisk yourself away to a brilliant afternoon tea at Anti:dote. I envision that Anti:dote's afternoon tea is the best place to bring your mother for a wonderful experience this Mother's Day. The restaurant claims to be "a stylish and modern cocktail bar with a progressive selection of concoctions that appeals to the most discerning taste buds". Unfortunately, we weren't there for the premium spirits and housemade bitters. I was there, ready to be swept away by Anti:dote's new afternoon tea set, with nine other bloggers.
As a starter, you get to choose either Dim Sum or the Organic Egg. This is followed by a four-level drawer filled with sweets, savouries, scones and biscuits.
Scallop Siew Mai, Carrot Cake and Taro dough fritterThe dim sum selection changes weekly. We had the siew mai, carrot cake's and some taro dough fritter. The carrot cake was really fresh and didn't taste too oily. The scallop siewmai makes it more chewy. I thought the dim sum selection was just average compared to better dim sum vendors in Singapore, though it may be because the dish was pretty cold by the time we ate it.
Organic egg, sea urchin, salmon roe and caviar
Personally, I prefer the organic egg, sea urchin, salmon roe and caviar because the flavours were really well-balanced, and the texture was quite interesting. You have the slightly sweet, mildly salty, brisk flavours with tiny 'balloons' exploding in your mouth. The presentation of the dish was also fantastic— I mean, who would have thought that an egg dish could look so stunning with a few stone pebbles? Quite interesting, I'd say.
The Anti:Dote Sweet & Savoury Drawer
Dazzling, gorgeous, enchanting— these are just some words to describe the drawer. My photos aren't an accurate representation of how they really look in real life— such delicate sweets and mouthwatering savouries. Ai Ling and I took awhile to figure where to start from— some of my friends decided to start from the bottom. We decided to go with the second level drawer first.

Have always known Anti:dote as a place for cocktails, but it is also a place where one could also enjoy an afternoon of indulgence with Anti:dote Afternoon Tea available everyday from Mondays to Thursdays 3pm to 5pm, and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays will see two seatings; 12pm to 2pm and 3pm to 5pm Priced at $48++ per adult. You will get to choose a starter from two choices (either dim sum or the organic egg), a pot of tea of your choice and a drawer containing savouries and sweets. Top up $15++ for a glass of champagne.
The place is within Fairmont Singapore, just right next to City Hall MRT. So convenient. Went on a Saturday evening and the place was rather busy. Reservation is recommended.
TWG tea is used here. The selections include the popular "Holiday in Paris", "The Bellini" or "Pink Flamingo". Had a taste of those three blends and it was rather floral and sweetish scent. And, guess what I had? The classic French Earl Grey. Ok, I know. Am boring.
Anti:dote Organic Egg dim sum - scallop siew mai, fried beancurd with fish paste and carrot cake
For the starters, my choice was very clear. The Anti:dote organic eggs. Firm egg custard topped with caviar, ikura and sea urchin. Yums. Would I exchange this for the dim sum? Absolutely not.
Due to the size of our group, many drawers were brought out. Each one gets to share a drawer with his/her favourite person. At max, a drawer holds enough items for 3 pax to share.
So, we scrutinized the drawers. Starting from the bottom. Oh, we found plastic-wrapped crackers and some homemade raspberry jam, lemon curd and Devonshire clotted cream.
Somehow, just by saying Devonshire is getting me into the mood... for scones! Oh my, the parmesan scones was just the perfect item for the afternoon tea. Spread generously with clotted cream and lemon curd, and pop a bite into the mouth. So good. The jam and lemon curd were both very good. Just have it with all three. Triple the enjoyment!
And, before you know it...the scones were polished off, completely.
The second drawer had the savoury items. You will find the Boston Maine Lobster mini-roll in here. The wild mushroom stuffed puff pastry was quite good as well. After the second drawer, suddenly it dawned upon me that there was seriously a bit too many items with caviar and...

Went there to celebrate my husband's birthday, with a few friends. The cocktails are definitely the best part, but the Tapas and the service make a great addition, to make it a wonderful evening.
The Iberica with burrata is definitely my favourite. The oysters were fresh and the foie gras was delicious.
The service staff are all very attentive and friendly. All in all we were glad we decided to celebrate there
