Brasserie La Saveurs @ St. Regis .......... Afternoon Tea



I've met up with a few friends at Brasserie La Saveurs at St. Regis for a Saturday afternoon tea before doing some shopping in Orchard. La Saveurs has a comfortable and opulent setting. The ceiling is nicely decorated with colored glass of floral motifs that allow light to pass through. You'll not miss the few huge chandeliers on the ceiling. The ambience of the place is definitely fitting for a 6 star hotel.



There are not many people in La Saveur when we were there. However, I was disappointed in the service that was provided. For a 6 star hotel, the service staff were not attentive enough. We ordered 3 pots of different teas. One of the service staff actually used the same tea strainer to pour all our teas. If they were properly trained they will have poured the tea with the individual strainers that come with each pot. Hmmm...... I just let it go as we were quite done with the tea anyway. Somehow I felt that the service is not as good and passionate compared to my Ritz Carlton Chihuly lounge tea time experience.

However, the tea breads and minature pastries saved the day for La Saveur. They're quite good!

The St. Regis Afternoon Tea Menu consist of :

1) A Tier - Freshly baked scones with cream. Assorted Finger Sandwiches.

The freshly baked scones with cream was good ...........


The assorted sanwiches .........



2) A little Indulgence - Selection of Tea breads, Miniature Pastries and Assorted Fresh Fruits. 

This is the spread that made my day here. The creativity a good mix of fruits and sweet mousse  tickled my taste buds. I'll show you a few that I liked best ........



The strawberry tart ........



The raspberry tart with mini macarons ..........



The Assorted fruits shortbread ..........



The cookies with crispy corn flakes .........



3) Your Choice of One Hot Savory - You can choose one out of the four. Don't expect too much for this. The portion is mini (is there a smaller font for the word mini that I can use and you can still see?) .........

Quiche of the Day .........



Dim sum of the Day ..........



Curry Puff. I chose this one....... sssh don't tell any one but I think Old Chang Kee one is bigger and better ..........



There's also the chicken and beef satay that we did not order.

The following Shrimp Fried Rice is something out of the menu which we had ordered out of a little surge of gluttony from one of my munching mates. But there's no regret. It taste good!


For S$5 more you can have a glass of Rose Moet and Chandon champagne. 

Cost : S$45+++ without champagne (S$50+++ with a glass of Rose Moet and Chandon champagne)

Address : 29 Tanglin Road, The St. Regis

Even if the service wasn't the best, it looks like the atmosphere and the food was great. How fun.

Interesting that in Singapore the tea service wouldn't be at it's best - especially at a 6 star. The selections were presented beautifully. I'm curious if they actually tasted as good as they looked? When we were in China a couple years ago, we took part in something similar, but were disappointed that nothing had any flavor at all. The dishes were so completely un-sweet that it was almost like eating "fake" food.

St. Regis is quite a new hotel in Singapore after all. Give it some time, I'm sure the service will be tip top! As for the food that I've shot. They all taste good....especially the fruit tarts! Yummy :) ........

Thanks for the review and photos! Was thinking of checking out the high tea but sadly, the reviews before yours at Hungrygowhere didn't give much useful info...

Expensive. But damn good. My new favourite chichi buffet place. =)

How would you compare this with Chihuly's?

I think it's a close fight between Chihuly and La Saveurs. Personally, I prefer the food items provided at Chihuly but I like the ambience at La Saveurs.
