I recently got my chance to go to the shangri la hotel for their afternoon tea.
the restaurant decor was so so and I don't fancy their western take on Chinese people with that a side everything else was nice.
their tea set wasn't prettiest, interestingly enough it reminded me of Versace epic shower room..
now on to the food:
There were 3 plates, I liked 2/3 of them. they were pretty unique, especially the savory tier ..even though it is savory it is incorporated with fruit. which IMO is probably really hard to do well =D
why 2/3? because the sweet tier could not compare to the other 2... I didn't like the cookie the most. I had expected more in quality
the hostess wasn't at her pedestal when I arrived, security had to go get her in the back room, at the time there was only one group seated and already served... she has reservation list and should know when she should stand outside.......
anyhow she did her job, served us, told us what we were eating and poured our tea. I didn't really feel like I was serviced...I'm not sure what I could say more but some people when they serve you it feels like you have been served and greatly appreciated and taken care of
it not that it isn't pretty, just not my preferred style
Macaron was fail i can't even grade it
