TWG might be a tad snooty (still not as atas as PS Cafe), but it’s the place that most women who love high tea, would appreciate. The cutlery and table settings were all just so pretty. The natural light flooding in, watching the tourists go by in sampans in the artificial canal below, the beautiful surroundings. The only thing that marred the experience was the constant lucky draw announcements over the loud speakers. It was quite annoying and drowned out the soothing classical music played by the tea lounge. The food here was perfection and it was a wonderful place to celebrate a special day.
With a dizzying array of hundreds of teas (black, white and green), you’ll be spoilt for choice and want to try more than one.
Some of us opted for the crepe, from the ala carte menu that served from noon, instead of brunch that served from 10am to 3pm.
I absolutely loved the generous serving of vegetable quiche. The crust was buttery deliciousness. The portion of green salad was so generous, it was hard to finish.
Loved that bits of sweet pumpkin in the quiche.
Another of the brunch options, if you don’t quite care for quiche.
The orange juice was extremely orange and pleasant to look at, but I wish that it could have been chilled instead. The ice melted quickly and it became dilute.
You could pick from the various cakes and tarts from the counter. It was part of the brunch menu.
I had a raspberry tart, but I was hoping for a lemon tart instead. I had a lemon tart previously at the ION branch and it was out of this world.
If you come here you must have the macarons. They are the best I have tasted in Singapore. We picked rose and caramel. Oh the joy of almond, egg white, sugar and cream. No cloying sweetness here. It was perfection.
We also tried the creme brulee from the ala carte menu. Even though we were filled up to the brim by then, who can resist the concoction of a kitchen blowtorch taken to a custardy mix of eggs, sugar, vanilla and cream.
The TWG is located just above this canal.
