The Christmas season is upon us, and dining places have refreshed their afternoon tea menus so you can enjoy sumptuous holiday-themed delicacies throughout the month. There’s something for everyone to enjoy—those with big appetites may visit L’Espresso for its extensive high tea buffet that includes a carving station, while dessert lovers should consider LeBar for its range of yuletide confections. These are only the tip of the iceberg, so if you're ready to indulge in all things sweet and savoury, here are nine places to get you started.
1. Ellenborough Market Café
Spend a leisurely afternoon tucking into Ellenborough’s impressive spread, which comprises over 50 local and international dishes. To get you into the holiday spirit, dig into options like the honey-baked ham with caramelised pineapples and cinnamon apple sauce, and roasted tom turkey accompanied by giblet gravy and port wine sauce. But if you’re craving for local flavours, there’s a Peranakan section with the popular chilli crab kueh pie tee, ngoh hiang and rojak, as well as the dim sum repertoire of baked barbecue pork and char siew pau. Drinks are a la carte. Available from now until January 2, 2022. Book here.
Tatler Tip: Pair the afternoon feast with exclusive cocktails. Santa’s Smash is a medley of bourbon, rosemary syrup and cranberry juice, and Kringle Flip is a fruity mix of run, fresh strawberry and cranberry juice.
