Afternoon Tea at the Tiffin Room, Raffles Hotel | Singapore


A colleague of mine had told me about the famous Raffles Hotel and the Singapore Sling that had originated there. While I was researching the place, I read that you could also have afternoon tea at the Tiffin Room at the hotel. As I hadn't had any for a long time I thought that it would be a good idea to try theirs. 

As you can see from the photos, the hotel looks like a dream. The Tiffin Room, where afternoon tea is served, looks just like it used to more than a hundred years ago during colonial times. The food was great; the finger sandwiches were a delight. The dessert selection had a few pieces that were a bit too sweet for my taste. There was also a buffet which offered additional desserts, tea, dumplings, fruit, mini croque monsieurs and scones. 

As for the service... well, even with a reservation I had to queue with those that had one as well. It took quite a while to be seated and be served. I had expected that there were different afternoon tea formulas but there seemed to be only one standard one. I could only choose between coffee and three kinds of tea. 

Overall it was a nice experience, albeit very touristy. I still have to go back to Raffles Hotel for my Singapore Sling. I might do that tomorrow evening.

  1. It looks stunning and the desserts are so yummy, I have a big sweet tooth so they would have been my taste! The queue must have been annoying though. Have a good week Anouk! (Thanks a lot, just arrived in Naples where will stay all the week) xo
