Lobby Lounge – 100 Years of Hospitality Afternoon Tea [MEDIA INVITE]

Egg Benedict with Asian Crab Salad

Hilton Celebrates 100 Years of Hospitality. Lobby Lounge at Conrad Centennial Singapore partakes in this celebration through its 100 Years of Hospitality Afternoon Tea. Let us enjoy the signature dishes popularised by Hilton through its 100 years of Hilton Hospitality.

100 Years of Hospitality Weekend Afternoon Tea Menu

The first course for Weekend Afternoon Tea is Seafood Platter on Ice. Consist of Poached Boston Lobster, Prawns and Irish Oysters. The freshness of the seafood really shines here. The lobster prawns are firm and springy, and I have both of them plain and really enjoy the natural sweetness of the seafood. The Irish Oysters are briny and sweet, and I just need to use a few drops of lemon juice.

To accompany the seafood is the newly crafted mocktail made from chrysanthemum, calamansi and leatherwood honey. It is fragrant, refreshing with solid leatherwood honey at the end. It really well with the seafood.

Newly Crafted Mocktail

For those having the free flow of sparkling wine, Nino Franco, it will be served after the first course. Of course, you can have it earlier if you wish.

The Second Course drew inspiration from Waldorf Astoria NY 1894. Egg Benedict with Asian Crab Salad, served with Hollandaise and Smoked Paprika. The crab salad replaces the original bacon. We were a bit curious that the service staff used a food trolley to serve the egg benedict. We were then informed that Hilton is the first hotel to introduce in-room dining in the hospitality industries.

The eggs are well poached, topped with solid creamy hollandaise sauce. The crab meat is refreshing and upping the game for the standard of an ordinary egg benedict.

Savory and Sweet Treats

Third Course Savory delights consist of Waldorf Salad (from Waldorf Astoria NY 1894), Chorizo Pate and Burrata Pincho, Cucumber and Cheese Pincho and Homemade Dill Gravlax, Horseradish Cream Cheese, Caviar.


Waldorf Salad 

Chorizo Pate and Burrata Pincho

The Waldorf Salad is crunchy, juicy and helps to cleanse the palate, while the Cucumber and Cheese Pincho has a more neutral flavour as the cucumber offset the saltiness in the cheese. The Chorizo Pincho has a good touch of spiciness and the Homemade Dill Gravlax is a tad too salty.

Sweet Treats of the third course represents the Hilton creations from around the world. Walnut Brownies (Palmer Hilton, 1893), Pina Colada (Caribe Hilton, 1954), Cream Cheese Red Velvet Cake (Waldorf Astoria NY, 1950), Gin and Tonic Panna Cota (Conrad Centennial Singapore 2016), and Strawberry dip Vanilla Milk Chocolate.

Walnut Brownies

Granny Garden Tea

Without a doubt, these are the highlights for the Heritage Afternoon Tea. The Walnut Brownies are just classic, solid brownie base, topped with cream and covered in white chocolate. The Red Velvet Cake is soft, moist and fluffy.

Pina Colada 

The adorable looking coconut shape Pina Colada is made from solid dark chocolate, filled with coconut milk cream. While Gin and Tonic Panna Cota has a nice tangy gin and tonic jelly on top, followed with a rich creamy base. The Strawberry dip Vanilla Milk Chocolate is delicious and the sourness from the strawberry helps to balance the sweet offerings here.

Scones are the Fourth Course of the afternoon tea. Served with Clotted Cream, Orange Jam, Homemade Strawberry Jam. There are two types of scones, plain and raisin. The Orange Jam and Homemade Strawberry Jam are delicious and made a good pairing with the scones.

Overall, the Heritage 100 Years of Hospitality Afternoon Tea represent the history and journey of Hilton Group. We learn some interesting facts about Hilton through this Afternoon Tea. Sure, worth the visit. Cheers!!
