Pollen @ Gardens By The Bay
It is always a joy to visit the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay. And the whole dome was exceptionally beautiful during the recently concluded Tulip festival.
Lot's of beautiful real tulips on display, and we were there on the 2nd last day where all of the flowers were in full bloom.
Made reservations at Pollen for a leisure afternoon tea before going for the flower tour.
There were 3 of us, and we had a choice of 3 different teas which were refillable.
The Afternoon Tea (S$38++ per person) was one of the better deals here. But as it is an afternoon tea, the variety and quantity were quite small. And it's non-refillable too.
Gibassier with homemade jam. We like the crispy crust.
Sandwiches (Smokes salmon + chive cream cheese, cured ham + mustard pickles, organic egg mayo + spring onions, Corn fed chicken + tarragon mayo)
Éclairs and tea cakes. The macarons were one of the better ones we had here in Singapore. Tea cups a bit too dry.
We also ordered some additional items, such as this Half dozen "Fine de Claire" oysters with shallot vinegar (S$37)
And the Crispy fried baby squid with chilli and lime and piperade sauce (S$17). The squid was crispy, but a little bit tough.
Grilled white peach, bresola salad with balsamic dressing (S$28)
