I have been a great supporter of Shangri la hotel and adore its serenity.
One of my favorites would be Rose Veranda. They serve high tea in two sessions, 12-3 or 3-6. I usually opt for the latter as I get to sneak in another half an hour or so.
I was initially disturbed by some issues that happened in the restaurant quite a while ago, but then, the asst director of f&b - Suzie, along with the restaurant mgr Sherine, helped to clarify those matters and things were eventually resolved.
Spread at the rose veranda were not extensive but I dare say the quality has been well maintained. Firstly, you get hundreds of quality tea to choose from - TWG, served in your personal pot. Next, they have nice selection of local delicacies - the laksa has very good soup base and ingredients are fresh. Best of all, you get to mix and cook it yourself! It's pretty fun. Lastly, dessert are well stocked with a good mix.
They never fail to brighten your day if you are celebrating a special occasion such as birthdays. Staff come to sing and clap (awkward at times.... If you are the low profile individuals), presenting you with a nice cake!
Well, for regular visitor like myself, food variety doesn't seem to present much of a surprise. Even for my visit last Sunday - Easter, it wasn't truly Easter and ambience pales in comparison to other places where we get to see bunny mascots.. But I guess it doesn't gel well with the slightly matured crowd....
Well, I will still choose to visit Rose veranda and thanks for surprising me with the nice greeting card! And yes, I am pleased to be back to Rose Veranda again! All the best to Suzie, as I have heard that you have been promoted to director of f&b at Rasa sentosa, Singapore.
