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. 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, chillli 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 ambience was good, nice view, jazz music playing at the background, spacious seatings and everyone felt relaxed. 

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.

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

The price was also pretty reasonable, given the restaurant was located within the Fullerton Bay Hotel.

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.

With the Marina Bay waterfront as the backdrop, tall ceilings, sweeping arches, plush silk carpets and well-appointed furniture, there’s no doubt The Clifford Pier is a stunner.

The historic landmark was the first port of call for immigrants in the 1930s. From the 1950s, the car park beside the Pier was transformed into a hawker centre at night. Staying true to the site’s rich history, The Clifford Pier serves reinterpretations of classic Singaporean fare.

The festive afternoon tea ($43), served on a quintessential 3-tier stand,  is inspired by distinctively local flavors, curated by Singaporean Cookbook author Shermay Lee. Its inclusive of a choice of one beverage ( Kopi Kosong, Teh Tarik, Air Bundung, English Breakfast tea, Earl Grey Tea, Moroccan Mint Tea, Café Latte, Cappuccino or Espresso) which is refillable. A live pianist serenade diners with his melodies and deep vocals.

The Kurobuta Pork sandwiched between the Kong Bao Bao was flavorful, but a tad too dry and tough. Stuffed with generous chucks of succulent flesh doused in chilli sauce, the Chilli Crab Bao fared much better.

Warm, fluffy Buttermilk and Tropical Fruits Scones sits on the first tier. A variety of condiments are available to accompany the scones- cream cheese, salted butter, berry jam, pineapple jam and kaya. The chilli is meant for the Kueh Pie Tee.

Handcrafted savory treats occupy the second tier, namely Hae Bee Hiam French Toast, Otak Sandwich, Mini Po Piah Wrapped in Handmade Nonya Egg Skin, Kueh Pie Tee, Bak Kwa Jam Sandwich and Nonya Chicken Curry & Roti Jala Wrap.

Dainty sweets include Red Velvet Swiss Roll, Roselle Linzer Cookies, Bundung Macaron, Mixed Fruit Cake and Pear Tart. Most outstanding of all was the pear tart- mildly saccharine pears encased in buttery tart base and glittered with crumble. The bundung macaron deserves a mention too. Textures were spot on-slightly chewy macaron shells with a crisp exterior and creamy rose centre. If only it wasn’t overwhelming sweet. Overall, we felt that the food only average, but gorgeous ambiance and attentive service made up for it. Festive afternoon tea set will be available until 31st Dec 2014

I came here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday on a Saturday night. For more details on my experience, please visit http://doriateo.blogspot.sg/2014/10/birthday-celebration-at-clifford-pier.html!

I thought the ambience was incredible. The decorations were all so elegant and it wasn't too noisy as well. There was even a jazz band playing and we really enjoyed the music as well.

The food was pretty affordable. Most of the food were about $20 to $30? The westerns were good. We ordered the lobster roll and the lobster was really fresh! It came with truffle fries too and that was such a pleasant surprise.

However, i would not recommend ordering the hawker fare. We ordered the fried carrot cake. You could probably easily get it at any hawker stall and i thought the hawker food were not too value for money. The rickshaw noodles was not bad too but it wasn't exactly mindblowing.

Overall, for the ambience, i would nonetheless still recommend giving this place a try. It's really ideal for quiet birthday celebrations and romantic dates!

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
