Hi Tea at Landing Point, Fullerton Bay hotel

Met up with girl friends to try out the much rave about afternoon tea at Landing Point restaurant. They are having a purple themed X'mas decor...nice!

This place was formally the Clifford pier (红灯码头), now converted into a hotel. This path leads to the chinese restaurant Lantern. Some oriental decor on both sides..

The Landing Point is on the right side of the entrance...

Nicely decorated place with tall ceiling, plush sofa and scenic seaview..

Some of the afternoon tea seating arrangements..

More seating at the bar area...if this place is fully booked, you'll be offered to sit at the bar.

Our table setup with X'mas decor..

There is a selections of cold/hot coffee and TWG tea. I chose the Silver moon, some of my friends ordered ice latte and ice fruit tea..

After sometime, the much awaited 3 tier goodies arrived. We had a X'mas menu due to the festive season. Top and bottom tier are sweet items and middle tier has a range of savory items.

The 4 items on top are hazelnut cream choux pastry, orange choco opera cake, madeleines and cinnamon creme brulee choc tart.

At the middle, there are turkey wrap, onion quiche, salmon cone (no lobster :( ), egg mayo toast, cheese biscuit, parma ham burger, smoke salmon & cucumber sandwiches.

Bottom tier has cinnamon macaroon, mince pie, x'mas fruit cake and butter cookie.

Some of my food choices...the best sweet item is the cinnamon creme brulee choc tart...thumbs up! I also liked the hazelnut cream choux pastry...not too sweet and the puff is soft. The orange choco opera cake is not bad but sweet, the madeleines are too sweet. The macaroon is nice and light and not too sweet, the mince pie and fruit cake is disgusting sweet. Butter cookie was alright.

The savories are more popular with the girls, we had multiple servings of turkey wrap, salmon sandwich, egg mayo toast, onion quiche and the cheesy biscuits..the salmon cone is quite good but they didn't replenish often and we had to ask for it, so was the yummy creme brulee tart..

During the tea, some items not on the menu was served...there is raspberry cream cake in a shot glass, mont blanc cake and mini choc log cake...we were very full by then and only tasted the sour/sweet raspberry was not bad.

Scones were served warm and wrapped in a napkin, and were pretty much neglected during our tea session..

We had a nice time catching up over tea and yummy finger food here. The service here was very good, ambience was nice, food was generally good. We paid $46 per pax after 10% discount using UOB verdict is it is worth the price to dine here.
