Afternoon Tea @ 10 Scotts Lounge, Hyatt Hotel


High Tea sessions have somehow resumed its frequency in my dining schedule, for a strange reason. And I thought I bypassed  that level of leisure in my life to prefer high tea to brunch and dinner. Hyatt it was then for a session of nibbles and tea then!


I'd suggest requesting for a table with proper chairs for a more comfortable dining experience. Sitting on sofas with equally low coffee tables is possibly the worst combination for a leisurely afternoon tea session.


Two tiers are served alongside a buffet spread with Hyatt signatures like homemade sustainable crab cakes with remoulade sauce, curry puffs and scones.






The buffet spread is limited - none of the freshly shucked oysters as mentioned on their website but a live station that changes weekly serving unlimited servings of flambed minute steaks, a cheese counter and a selection of sweets.

Chef on standby to flambe steaks! 


Sear those filets.


Watch those flames.


Cheeses, galore!


And look at that beautiful mould on the blue cheese!


Anyone fancies sushi?


And the limited dessert spread comprising mostly of cakes.


Frosted cakes.


Berry crumbles!

Oddly, I was filled up quite reasonably with just one serving of two tier. Notable favourites include their


Crabcakes that we ended up having three rounds of! These were the bomb at Martini Bar previously but tasted less satisfying this time. Perhaps they were prepared before hand and served lukewarm that made the difference but these still rank as best crabcakes around with their crusty sides and plump fillings.

Beetroot Gazpacho

A hit and miss for some but I thought this cold broth was a refreshing version.


Curry Puffs

These potato puffs deserve some mention here, flaky pastry encasing a delicious curry potato filling. Had I not overdosed on those crabcakes, I would have had seconds of these!

Whereas from the buffet table


Cheese selection

Reasonable spread of cheeses with breads and dried fruit too. Whilst the bread could do with more crunch, this was definitely one of the highlights for me.


Minute steaks

Cooked on demand, these steaks made up for the lack of flavour with plenty of theatrics that included a flaming master. Perhaps just one portion is good enough.


Blueberry Crumble

These mini tartlets were the highlight of the dessert section, crunchy tart, almond cake and topped with a crumble. What's not to like?

The rest of the meh-dinary.   



Scones, just because it is high tea but these were more biscuit than buttery bakes. Nothing that clotted cream or fruit preserve could save.

It was a quick afternoon that went by way too fast, more because of the fun conversations than the food itself. The 2 hour limit was perhaps the restaurant's way of saying "thank you come again", last orders were taken 30 minutes before closing time and the bill shoved to us 15 minutes after 5pm, citing preparation for dinner.

Not such a friendly place to hang out methinks and just once is truly enough.
