An unexpected pleasant surprise

2 years ago, I was certainly not impressed with Rose Veranda’s afternoon tea offerings-only some items in the buffet line was worth a praise, while everything else was in a lackluster state of mediocrity. This time, my experience was a pleasant surprise that totally changed my opinion of Rose Veranda; there was a marked improvement not only in the variety, flavor and quality of the nosh, but also the service.

Upon seated, we were served a refreshing glass Rose Iced Tea and creamy Pumpkin Puff Soup, which is included in the buffet.

We then proceeded to browse the extensive TWG tea menu, organised into herbal, pu’erh, blue, white, green and black tea categories. After much deliberation, we finally settled for Sakura! Sakura! Tea (cherry blossoms and green tea), Imperial Rose (white tea handcrafted into bouquet of roses), and Eau Noire Tea (black tea with lavender and fragrant flowers).

As there were so many dishes and desserts to try, I was selective with my choices so as to not burst the tummy. Yes, you’ll be spoilt for choice and i doubt you’ll be able to try everything. After the Sushi Bar, the savoury buffet line began with Gluten-free Butter Garlic RiceHar KawChicken Siew MaiCrystal Vegetable DumplingVegetable Spring Roll and Baked Vegetable Curry Puff.

My first plate consisting of:
-Fork tender Parchment baked Garoupa with dill and citrus butter
-Braised Duck with Plum and Peanut sauce, which was too tough.
-Spinach and Ricotta ravioli
-Herb Cream Cheese Sandwich with chopped pecan nut
-Sliced Cucumber Sandwich with rocket, cream cheese and dill
-Turkey Ham, Cheese and Tomato Sandwich; a classic combination that can’t go wrong

The second plate comprises of:
-Chilled Ratatouille Salad
-Unique Curried Apple and Arugula Sandwich
-Comforting Egg Mayo, Cucumber and Watercress Sandwich
-Mortadella and Waldorf Salad Tortilla Wrap
-Herb crushed potato
-succulent and flavoursome Garlic Butter Prawns with fresh herbs
 
Mee Siam

The Roasted Lamb was outstanding; juicy and tender, it was bliss with every mouthful. It was so fantastic, I had 4 servings.

The sweet section itself is a sight to behold. Apart from the eye-catching chocolate fondue centerpiece, the the counter was also filled with exquisite treats. Both shelves at each side are packed with appealing cakes. (pls see blogpost for entire list and pictures of desserts)

My top picks are the Raspberry Shortcake, Oreo Choux, Salted Toffee Cup Cake and Cherry Cheesecake. For a splendid afternoon tea in a timeless setting, Shangri-La’s Rose Veranda is a good choice. Afternoon Tea buffet is priced at $48++ per adult and $25++ per child (6-11 years old). It’s served daily from 11.30am-6pm from Monday to Thursday, with 2 seatings from Friday to Sunday and Public Holidays from 11am-2pm and 3pm-6pm.

This was around my 5th time to The Rose Veranda. Service was ok but not great. It's nice to see the waitress here were well-groomed!



I feel that the quality of the food/dessert was much better the previous times compared to now. Their cakes used to make me WoW last time but not so much now.. Overall still acceptable and I really like the cosy and elegant ambience here. Hope they can improve on the food quality and this place will be a perfect place for high tea!

I've made reservations by call twice in the past 2 months. For both visits, we ended up being told by the staff there that there were no such reservations!!! The staff tried to put the blame to the hotel's dining reservation team. But hello - you claim yourself as a six-star hotel but your catering staff could not even jot down the reservation details and communicate properly among yourself?!?! What a joke!
