In honour of Singapore’s 58th birthday, Sofitel Singapore City Centre is excited to present The Local Table Afternoon Tea at 1864. Guests can look forward to an epicurean afternoon tea experience crafted with premium ingredients and a home-grown twist, inspired by nostalgic flavours that Singaporeans are familiar with. Available only from 1 to 31 August, be charmed by 11 delightful treats, including five savoury items and six sweets, all carefully crafted to tantalise the taste buds.
Highlights include the Chilli Crab Roll, where chunks of blue swimmer crabmeat marinated in sweet, tangy chilli crab sauce are encased in a brioche bun and topped with caviar for a luxurious burst of briny flavour. Another treat which takes an innovative twist is the Foie Gras Butter with Curried Caramelised Candy – where creamy foie gras butter on a light toast is topped with caramelised sugar that is infused with curry and spices, resulting in a fragrant bite with layers of fun textures. No Singaporean would be stranger to the Otah, where a plant-based alternative is presented here along with spiced lychee lime salsa, bringing together an unexpectedly delicious flavour and texture combination that elevates the otah’s umami notes.
From the highly valued Musang King to the familiar and aromatic scent of pandan leaves, relish an ensemble of exquisitely crafted elegant sweet treats incorporating the everyday Singaporean flavours. Stealing the show is the aesthetically pleasing Musang King Durian Puff – where the treasured durian variety is encased in a cream puff pastry and finished with ‘spikes’ made of luscious durian crème chantilly. Another creation putting a spotlight on Singapore’s perennial favourite is the Pandan Chiffon Cake, which comes in the form of a fluffy and moist cake topped with silky coconut namelaka cream glaze and a touch of 24k gold flakes for a fanciful finish. No afternoon tea experience is complete without scones, and the Local Table version has taken the classic pastry for a local spin with Cempedak Scones served with house-made jackfruit jam and clotted cream.
The Local Table Afternoon Tea is available from 1 to 31 August 2023, from 2pm to 5pm in 1864. Priced at S$118++ for a set (serves two persons), each set includes a choice of two premium tea from TWG, or barista-made coffee.
