Afternoon tea with a touch of local delicacies

I went to The Clifford Pier for afternoon tea with my friends and I was really impressed.

Food - Afternoon tea could be rather boring if the food served were mainly western food and sweet pastries. What I like about The Clifford Pier was that they added local delicacies to the afternoon tea menu, serving food such as kong ba pau, chilli crab mantou, kueh pai ti, otah sandwich and more. I felt that the variety of food served here was much better than The Landing Point (within the same hotel). 

The only thing that I do not like about the afternoon tea was the beverage selections. The Landing Point had better tea and coffee selections, while the beverage menu at The Clifford Pier was really limited. Maybe that was because they focused on serving local drinks like bandung and teh tarik.

Interior/Ambience - The ambience was good, nice view, jazz music playing at the background, spacious seatings, high ceiling, and everyone felt relaxed. 

Service - It would be better if the service staff could be prompt and attentive, we reserved a table for 5 but they gave us table for 3. We had to talk to 3 different service staff before we changed to another table on our own (cause everyone arrived). It also took a while before they served us all our drinks.

The price was also pretty reasonable, given the restaurant was located within the Fullerton Bay Hotel. I would go back again, for sure.

Recommended for the Lavish Ambience with Average Afternoon Tea!

Overall the afternoon tea items here were average so don't expect anything that is mind-blowing.. But they were very generous to provide so many items for afternoon tea. We feel very full after we finished the 2 tiers, so we have to force ourselves to finish the 3rd tier. Therefore i think no refill of the items is needed unless you're a super big eater..  

As for the service, there were some hits and misses from the waitresses.  I think the main attraction to dine here is the lavish ambience rather than the food. It's really a very romantic place so i will definitely come back again. Hope the chef will continue to improve in the food quality and creativity!

Service - Made a reservation via Chope, indicinating that we are celebrating a birthday. Brought our own cake and was told that they cannot "store outside food", then promptly informed that no outside-bought cakes are allowed. I wish this was communicated at time of reservation. Arrived at 6.05pn for a 6pm reservation. Surly hostess informs us that table is being prepared. Okaaay. I had to check again if it is ready. We were presented with a slice of cake though to "make up" for the fact that we were not able to consume our own cake.

Food - Hawker food in a posh setting. You are paying for the ambience.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
