Thank you very much to Hungry Go Where and Conrad Centennial for the invitation to the tasting event.
Dining in Conrad Centennial Singapore always have an aura of posh and glamour. The Conrad brand itself should represent luxury that goes hand in hand with elegance. High Tea at Lobby Lounge in Conrad Centennial is no exception to this. It was recently relaunched during the Mother's Day period.
The selection of the food here heavy on the desserts side. When you enter the Lobby Lounge, the first thing you will notice are their sweets / desserts selection, followed by hot meal left of the Lobby Lounge, Cheese selections in the centre and appetizer and roast dish at the inner sanctum of the lounge. So what are the die die must try this here.
Everything with Chocolate.
These selections that all chocolate lovers should be going after to. Whether it is Praline; Cakes; Dessert shots; Fondue of strawberry & marshmallow; or Chocolate blocks, all of them are super yummy as they use top grade chocolates. If you think the chocolate blocks are hard to portion, you can use the hammer to whack it in the bite size that you like.
Mini Wagyu Cheese Burger BLT
. This bite size burger is one of the most popular item here. The meat is juicy, succulent and flavourful, while the size allow you to try out more food option. I pop a few of this, during the high tea session, but I won't disclose how many though. Yum Yum!
Fresh Oyster and Crayfish Salad
. The oysters are fresh as they come from all around the world. The Lounge will only serve what's fresh and in season, thus do ask the chefs what are the type of oysters they are serving that day. The crayfish salad are fresh mixed well with capsicums and served on the crayfish exoskeleton.
Lobster Quiche, Quail Egg Benedict, Roast Beef and the rest of the desserts
are a must try and their complete review is here
While there are some hits in the food, there are some misses as well, such as: Scones (Traditional, Salmon, Spinach & Goat Cheese). We find the texture a very dense and solid, a slight disappointment for scones lovers like us. The cream and jam is very good though. Dishes that can be improve are tempura mussels and gratin scallops which at times become chewy and dry as it was left under the heating light too long. The sushi rice also can do with a bit more cooking time and more rice vinegar.
Service is very inconsistent. For the chefs behind the food and dessert counters, they are very friendly and helpful. However, the service staff presence are minimum. At times it can be difficult to find them or even get their attention to clear the plates. Hopefully they can improve on this.
Overall, High Tea at Lobby Lounge is a memorable experience. The atmosphere is very classy, the food is good, the desserts are exquisite. Cheers!!
