After our amazing staycation at the Ritz Carlton Singapore, we were invited to Chihuly Lounge for the media’s preview of the Spring Weekend Afternoon Tea!
And boy did we have a classy afternoon!
The Spring Weekend Afternoon Tea at Chihuly , Ritz Carlton has an emphasis on CHEESES this time round! Sure there are savoury dishes and all. BUT for desserts, cheeses range from ricotta to parmesan to mozzarella to feta and even goat cheese! Cheeses take centre stage!
We started off with the savoury dishes…
There’s a great selection of sandwiches (including beef pastrami, smoked chicken and smoked salmon), canapes (smoked duck, scallops, salmon and eringi mushroom) and savoury dishes such as the steamed scallop siew mai, glazed wagyu beef ball with smoked garlic as well as the panko prawn with wasabi mayonnaise!
Our favourite from this selection has got to be the scallop and salmon! Both the salmon and scallop were VERY FRESH and the taste was very refreshing as well! The salmon roe really brought out the sweetness of salmon!
The wagyu beef ball and scallop siew mai should not be missed! Full flavoured beef infused with the smoky garlic makes this a must-try! The “white upon white” (scallop and white meat) steamed combination, also made this dish a favourite.

Sounds yummy doesnt it? But you wouldnt have guessed that the hot seller is this…
Yes, the mouse is the hot seller! And it’s used as a decoration with all other desserts as well! Each time they appear on the trays, they’d be gone almost instantly!
The mouse is actually the Parmesan Macaroon! The ingenious combination made this dish delectable, refreshing and highly sought after!
It’s small little things like this that makes the afternoon tea an enjoyable one. Even if the ice melts, the taste does not get diluted because the ice is made of the same tea!
