"The selection of savories in this tower were varied and delectable. The otak on Belgium endive leaf was tasty and I love the hit of chili to counteract the dense, slightly sweet fishcake, while the endive gave it freshness. The egg salad tartlet with pineapple patchare had an interesting touch of acidity and sweetness. The kuay pie tee was crisp and the savory pork filling topped with a large shrimp tasted luxurious in its own way." — Tina Wong (@wanderingeater) on our High Tea. ⁣ ⁣ High Tea is served exclusively at Violet Oon Singapore at ION Orchard from 3pm to 6pm (last order: 5.30pm).
