Angelina Tea Room & Patisserie has a long history since 1903 and has built its reputation as a tea room with sophistication and indulgence. This reputable brand has finally opened its branch here in Capitol Piazza, Singapore. Hannah, Luna and I were at the same building last Saturday and decided to check it out after our event. It was an impromptu lunch as we are so excited with it’s opening. It was only the 2nd day of soft launch and surprisingly we did not need for long. We managed to dine in within 15 minutes waiting time.
We ordered Old Fashioned Ice Chocolate “L’Africain” S$12.00 and Angelina mix Iced Tea S$9.50. Ice hot chocolate L’Africain has the chocolaty taste that is not overwhelming and flavorful. I am loving it! The mixed ice tea serves with a syrup serving where customers can customize your own sweetness level. Light taste to pair with desserts.
As for the mains, we decided to try Pan Fried Scallops S$29.00 served with 4 seared scallops with black venere rice and shellfish cream. The rice has the unique taste that best to have it with the shellfish cream. Otherwise, you might find it’s hard in texture and tasteless.
We also had Chicken Supreme S$23.00 served beautifully with the art plating. Chicken breast roll with chestnut puree and braised endive (leafy vegetable on top of the chicken roll). The servings are nicely roll up and very easy to consume if you are going for a date here. The meat texture was tender and flavorful with the chestnut puree.
There is always room for desserts. Although Mont Blanc is the signature dessert in Angelina, we decided to try other desserts. So, we had Paris-New York S$13.00. Choux pastry with pecan light cream and crunchy pecan praline heart. Beautifully presented on the table for us to feed our cameras before we attacked it. Some may find the cream too sweet but I personally feel that it is just fine. So, it’s all depends on individual preferences.
We glad that we ordered Choc Africain S$13.00. Combination of 3 chocolates which are African pure dark chocolate mousse, chocolate brownie and bitter dark chocolate cream. If you are a chocolate lover like me, you definitely should give this a try. Well-balance of sweetness and bitterness that best to enjoy with your companion.
Despite of their 2nd day of soft opening, the operation staffs are friendly and polite towards customers. The foods are served less than 15 minutes time. If you would like to have a classy yet affordable dinning, I think Angelina cafe can be one of the option. Although, the price is at a steep side, their foods and desserts are indeed quality and nicely plated on the table. This truly live ups their brand’s reputation throughout the years. I can see myself returning back to try other dishes and desserts soon.
