Relaxing High Tea at the Rose Veranda (Part 1 of 2)

Shangri-la Hotel’s Rose Veranda has become our default high tea place as the staff always make us feel at home. The food may not be the highest quality, but it has a down to earth cosy vibe which we really like. It’s so not atas and to me that’s a good thing.

The grand staircase leading up to the Rose Veranda from the lobby.

Lovely red and pink roses, everywhere.

So, so pretty.

The best part is that if you come here on a weekday you can lounge about from 11.30am right up to 6pm. But we kinda felt very stuffed by 3pm.

And we went for the unlimited selection of teas. They use the TWG brand of tea here.

We had a very refreshing view of the waterfall and surrounding garden, from where we sat.  It was even more awesome when it started to pour and the palm trees started swaying.

As always, the sandwiches were my favourite.

The chef came around and we were offered a very creamy pumpkin soup. It was milky, but I wish I could have tasted more of the pumpkin.

But what really excited our taste buds was the Tom Yam soup which you prepare yourself. The chef also stands by to serve you if you need help.

The Char Siew Pau was not too bad.

All kinds of bread rolls to satisfy my carb addiction. And I know this is a taboo when it comes to high teas as bread makes you feel full quite quickly.

There was this sandwich made with buns which I didn’t like so much.

Tried a white tea, but didn’t quite care for it. I have a preference for the black teas.

Wasn’t too fond of the heavier items either. This made it feel more like lunch than high tea.

Will continue with more of the sweet items in part 2.
