At the lobby of Fairmont Singapore, there is this restaurant called Anti:dote well known for its bar. But do you know it also served tea set?
The restaurant offers 2 types of tea sets : The Anti:dote Tea and The Oriental Tea which costs $45++, and comes with a choice of tea from a selection of TWG tea. Both tea sets are similar except that The Anti:dote Tea has The Anti:dote black truffle scrambled eggs, while The Oriental Tea serves a selection of steamed and fried Hong Kong Dim Sum. There is also Children Tea set ($15) but need to pre-order in advance.
An exclusive green and black blend
As dramatic and uplifting as the Himalayan plains, this remarkable delicate TWG black tea is blended with sweet fruits and spicy overtones to soothe and revive the spirit.
It tastes slightly gingery spicy.
Holiday In Paris
An exclusive white blend
Rare Yin Zhen and sweet vanilla have been blended as an ode to a leisurely promenade along the cobblestone streets of Paris. Nard and wild flowers decorate this cup with their crisp, floral flavour and leave a heady, perfumed aftertaste.
It tastes rather light with a slight flowery taste.
For The Anti:dote Tea set,
The Anti:dote black truffle scrambled eggs is served in black colored egg shell look alike cup, with soldiers by the side. The scrambled eggs smell of truffle and tastes creamy and rich.
For The Oriental Tea set,
There is pan fried carrot cake which looks slightly over fried as it is a bit too char. The inside is a bit too soft.
There is also the fried shrimp fritter which is filled with juicy shrimps. Have it with the delicious chilli sauce.
For steamed, there is Siew Mai topped with a piece of juicy scallop.
The tea set is beautifully served in box with 3 layers of drawers with different items in each drawer.
From the bottom drawer, there is Butter Cookies, Homemade Strawberry Jam, Devonshire Clotted Cream, and Lemon Curd.
The butter cookie is melt in the mouth with a milk powder taste.
In the middle drawer, there is the pipping Warm Raisin and Candied Ginger Scones.
The ginger scone is not overpowered by the ginger, just a hint of it. It tastes very nice with just the rich clotted cream and slightly tangy lemon curd.
In the top drawer, there is
Smoked salmon, lemon and dill cream cheese, ikura roe,
Boston lobster roll, confit lemon, chervil,
Iberico ham quiche, mozzarella, black truffle,
Confit duck rillette, foie gras terrine, pickled onions,
and Coronation curried chicken, apple.
Surprisingly my favourite item here turns out to be the plain looking quiche which quite a nice taste of the truffle.
On top of the drawer, there is
Framboise lychee macaron,
Red cherry rose ball,
Karukera chocolate mirror tart,
Chocolate pralines, and
Unlike the usual macarons with over the top sweetness, the one here is not too sweet with a melt in the mouth texture.
