New Hello Kitty Afternoon Tea In Singapore: 15 Sweet & Savoury Treats Served In A Treasure Chest
It seems like every new afternoon tea launch in Singapore just one-ups the previous. With $23 high tea in a pink Moroccan cafe, to hanfu afternoon tea with free hairstyling, and a Parisian-themed affair, the competition sure is stiff for eateries out there looking to come up with something fresh and new for us tai tai wannabes. But if you’re a Sanrio fan, none will be quite as enticing as the new Hello Kitty afternoon tea in Singapore - the first of its kind here.
Read on to find out more about the Hello Kitty afternoon tea in Singapore!
With “Hello Kitty Whimsical Tea Indulgence” as its moniker, this Sanrio-themed afternoon tea experience is a set of delicate sweet and savoury nibbles, served in an elegant white treasure chest at Anti:dote, under Fairmont Singapore. The pull-out drawers are filled with scones and savouries, while the mirrored surface on top is where the desserts are arranged.
Take a closer look and you’ll notice that some of the sweets, such as the macarons and red velvet slices, come with Hello Kitty motifs. Dear Daniel makes an appearance too! Special mention goes to the choux puffs shaped like apples, a commonly-appearing symbol in Hello Kitty merch.
A basic Hello Kitty afternoon tea set at $72 per person comes with 5 savoury items, 7 sweet items, and scones, which means you get a variety of 13 noms. Those in the mood to splurge can opt for an $80 set with a choice of 1 Amuse Bouche (Hokkaido Scallop or Sous Vide Japanese Egg), or an $88 set with both Amuse Bouche.
You can also top up $18 for a Hello Kitty or Dear Daniel mocktail. The former is pink in colour, with a Pink Flamingo Tea base, milk, strawberry, and rose, while the latter is a refreshing blue concoction of butterfly pea, apple, cucumber, and coconut cream.
Else, you can just go for one of the complimentary TWG teas, including unique flavours like The Bellini, Holiday In Paris, and Vanilla Bourbon.
