Shangri La, Rose Veranda: High Tea buffet

Shangri La, Rose Veranda: High Tea buffet

Mezzanine Level Shangri-La Hotel
22 Orange Grove Rd

Operating Hours:
Mon to Thur 11.30am - 6pm
Fri to Sun and PH 11.30am - 2pm and 3pm to 6pm

Wanna try out some taitai life, hence went for a few rounds of high tea session with different group of people. Like a shioks only... wahhahaah
Wanted to try Equinox, however, they no longer have high tea buffet, only the semi-brunch lunch available. And I realized not many high tea buffets nowadays, more of like a high tea set which is non-replenishable.

I think the price has increased. $48++

There was a whole selection of TWG tea.
However, I was pregnant, so I gave it to my bro instead.

Prawns with crispy oat and almonds.

I felt its a bit overcooked? not smooth and tender.

The cheese on top a little hard already. But still taste quite ok.

The chicken was not bad, not oily. Taste a bit like Mcdonalds fried chicken.
