Ginger. Lily located on level five (5) in Hilton Singapore Orchard has launched Nikei-Inspired Afternoon Tea. The botanical-inspired lobby lounge and bar offers not only afternoon tea, but artisanal cakes meticulously crafted by Chef Cindy Khoo and craft cocktails inspired from native herbs, flowers, and spices. This new chapter of the afternoon tea is inspired by the flavours of Nikkei cuisine, presenting a harmonious synthesis of Japanese and Peruvian elements.
Guests can start off with a welcome drink of Nikkei Sour by Mendoza that combines elements from Japan and Peru together by pairing Matcha Distillate with a Macchu Pisco base.
Just like any other Afternoon tea, expect to indulge in savoury and sweet delicacies. First up is the refreshing, tangy Nikkei-style salmon with crispy quinoa, kyuri and yuzu sauce. A selection of savoury delights like Shishamo Bun served with siracha, jalapenos and furikake sandwiched between traditional Nikkei bread, and Kurobuta Pork Sando with tonkatsu sauce and black garlic aioli.
Indulge in the bite-sized Nikkei-inspired Nigiri presented and torched right in front of you. Nigiri sushi includes Foie Gras with Nikkei ginger teriyaki and Maldon salt, White Fish with Shiromi chili and Aji Amarillo, and Maguro Chutoro with orange ponzu glaze and wasabi. Table service to guest’s delight, which is our first-time experience. Interactive experience I would say for an afternoon tea!
For sweets, look forward to Japanese-inspired patisseries like Matcha & Sudachi, Japanese Mango Cheesecake, Muscat Anise Shortcake, “Strawberry” Miso Tart, Hokkaido Potato Moelleux, Mikan Cacao Pepper Choux, Red Tea Azuki Dorayaki and Sesame Finger Cookies.
Scones are available in cranberry and vanilla flavours served with clotted cream, strawberry apple jam and yuzu chocolate crème.All the desserts are light, delicate, and refined by Chef Cindy Khoo. No doubt on her skill and creativity on the patisseries.
Pair them with a selection of 10 aromatic premium teas by Gifel Tea or coffee to complete the experience. Guests can select up to two flavours from the list including a specially curated Ginger.Lily house blend.
