High Tea at 10 Scotts

I went for high tea last Friday with a friend at 10 Scotts in Grand Hyatt.

This place is relatively new, and the restaurant felt like someone's very well decorated dining room. It had a very homely, yet very sophisticated feel to it.

The restaurant wasn't big at all, but all the tables were filled up during at tea time.

It was a high tea buffet, and we were served a tray of savoury goodies, which was refillable, and then informed that the main course for the day was chicken curry with pilaf rice and that there were salads, desserts, fruit and cheese at the buffet table. The buffet also came with coffee, tea or fresh juices.

I liked most of the food in the tray - the sandwiches were pretty decent, but my favourites were the very fresh and yummy crab cakes and the crispy curry puff. Happy and I had second servings of both.

My highlight of the high tea though, were the scones. The scones were really really good.

I mean really good. They were fluffy and melt in your mouth. And they were offered to us fresh out of the oven whilst they are still warm which made them even better.

These scones also came with very wonderful cream and a deliciously tart homemade raspberry jam. They offered homemade kaya as well with the scones, although I preferred them with the cream and jam. It had a very rich vanilla taste and I just could not help smearing the scones with a very generous helping of the cream.

Previously, my favourite scones have been the Buttermilk Scones that The Husband baked. My current favourite scones are these melt-in-your-mouth ones from 10 Scotts.

The staff were friendly and very efficient - constantly offering second and third helpings. It was a pity that I don't have such a great appetite recently.. but even then, I had a lot of good food that day.

I thought that the high-tea experience at 10 Scotts was a great one and I'd definitely be back again. Even if only for those scones.

The weekdays high tea costs $38++. In the weekends, you pay $48++. This high tea also comes with an option for free flow champagne for about S$30 more.
