Have always wanted to check out Anti:dote for it's unique high tea experience, where pastries and sweets are presented in an exquisite white leather-clad jewellery drawer chest. It is probably the most classy and style afternoon tea you can find in town. There are 2 afternoon tea sets on the menu to pick from - Anti:dote Tea Set or the Oriental Tea Set, both priced at $45++ each. Since there were the 2 of us, most of the item comes in pairs. The top deck consist of petite desserts, such as Strawberry gateau, Limoncino Napoleon, Cappuccino comtessa, Framboise lychee macaron, Red cherry rose ball, Mini cheese cake, raspberry jam, Chocolate pralines and Chocolate-dipped strawberry. Petite sandwiches include lobster roll, confit duck etc. My favorite pick among these were the Iberico ham quiche with black truffle. It was good with a blend of truffle and the iberico ham gives an extra boost in flavour.
No doubt it was a great experience to delight in an indulgent afternoon tea at Anti:dote Lounge. This is probably the most interesting afternoon tea concept in town and of course it comes with a price of $45++ per adult. It's an ideal chill out location over pastries and tea, like an escape from the hectic work.
