Alley On 25 @ Andaz Singapore - Puts A Local Twist On The Classic Afternoon Tea
Alley on 25 at Andaz Singapore launches a locally inspired, picnic themed afternoon tea set perfect for a leisurely weekday afternoon. Available from Monday to Friday, 3pm to 5pm, and priced at just $38++ per pax for the Andaz Afternoon Tea Picnic, diners can experience the joys of picnicking with a selection of sweet and savoury treats packed in a whimsical picnic basket, all while taking in the gorgeous Singapore skyline views on the 25th floor.
We were amazed by the huge picnic basket brought to our table, which was then opened to reveal two tiffin carriers filled with sweet and savoury flavours like the Smoked Salmon Tartine, Hummus, Impossible Cheese Balls, Lemon Chia Seed Tea Cakes and Fresh Strawberries.
Some of my favourites from the savoury selection include the crispy crab cake, prawn kueh pie tee, and lobster croissant. I enjoyed the crispy pastry tart shell filled with a flavourful mixture of thinly sliced vegetables and prawns, topped with a spicy tinge, while the lobster croissant boasts a buttery, flaky exterior stuffed with a generous serving of fresh crab meat.
Not forgetting the array of sweets which include the lemon chia seed tea cake, isaphan shooters, and Valrhona chocolate bonbon. Slather the scones in fresh cream and strawberry jam for the classic British-style afternoon tea, or have your fill of locally inspired desserts such as the Kueh Lapis and mini pandan chiffon cakes.
The Andaz chiffon cake is an existing signature of the restaurant. A reinvention of the classic Pandan cake, Andaz's rendition features a vibrant, glossy green glazed cake layered with fragrant pandan flavoured mousse.
Besides the locally inspired delights, guests may conclude their afternoon tea with a choice of chocolate or vanilla soft serve.
To complete the indulgent experience, guests may top up $40 per pax to enjoy free flow wines, beer and prosecco. For an extra special treat, a bottle of Delamotte Brut will be going at a special price of $88 (UP $110) and Ruinart Rose at $138 (UP $165) during afternoon tea.
