Pierre Herme Afternoon Tea at the Ritz

Afternoon tea 103 floors up at the Ritz Carlton! I’ve been wanting to try the Pierre Herme afternoon tea set since I heard they set up shop at the lobby at the Ritz! 103 floors up on a beautiful sunny day- we made a last minute booking and secured seats at the luxe and comfortable Cafe 103.

We sampled the Satine Afternoon tea set which will set you back $388 a person! 🙂 There’s a LOT of sweet as well as savoury pastries on the menu. I went with their Satine black tea which is flavoured with passion fruit and orange essence.

This was my favourite pastry by far. The Chou Satine | Choux pastry, passion fruit crumble, orange marmalade, passion fruit mascarpone cream, cream cheese mascarpone cream, shortbread pastry. It resembled a pineapple bun that you can get at your local bakery but it was filled with the most moist and creamy passion fruit cream. I loved the crumble that really gave this pastry its crunch, crisp and bite! 🙂 I want another one….now.

Savoury pieces! Herbed smoked salmon on top of a dark rye bread sandwich. (behind) is a lemon curd and seafood mousse lemon carrot bread Swiss roll with crab roe to resemble a siu mai! YUM.

The Herme Carre Satine….its basically a passion fruit and orange compote, cream cheese mascarpone cream, enrobed in white chocolate flavoured with vanilla gently on a breton shortbread biscuit!!

We were still a bit hungry so we went to the Lobby in between Tosca to order more from their a la carte menu! Twas a great mid week afternoon.

I’ll be back at the Ritz! Am definitely a fan of their spectacular hotel as well as their dining like Tosca, Tin Lung Heen, etc! 🙂 Have to give Vivian a big thank you too! 🙂 I’ll definitely be back.
