We decided to drop by Sky on 57 by Celebrity chef Justin Quek located right at the rooftop of Marina Bay Sands for their High Tea Set and in lieu of my sister’s birthday celebration. Upon stepping into Sky on 57, we’re surrounded by an aura of luxurious and elegance. Decked in wood and brass tone, with a towering bar top strategically located along at the side of the restaurant and dining area filled with posh comfortable seating making you feel like kings and queens. Be sure to catch glimpses of the amazing view that encircles you too!
Of course, one of the best selling point of Sky on 57 is none other than the mesmerizing panorama view of Singapore; from the beautiful greenery of Gardens by the Bay to the picturesque view of Marina Bay Reservoir to the tall sky-scrappers CBD office buildings, bringing Singapore to you in a 360 degrees view.
After the enjoyment of such breathtaking view Sky on 57 brings to you, it’s time to indulge in their gourmet high tea set for 2 at S78++. The set comes in a 3 tier filled with savory and sweet delicacies, Chef’s Signature and free flow selection of Vittoria gourmet coffee and fine tea.
For their tea selection, tea leaves are exquisitely showcased in a box display with samples and description introduction which aid us in our selection process. In addition to the tea selection, they have coffee selection varying from Long Black to Latte to Mocha, to Flat White to Cappuccino and more.
Here’s come the teaser delicately created by Chef Justin to kick start the high tea – Demitasse of Mushroom Cappuccino and Foie Gras Xiao Long Bao. The mushroom cappuccino was creamy, smooth and perfumed with strong flavors of wild mushroom and fine remnants of mushroom bits. And i must admit, this Foie Gras Xiao Long Bao is the best Xiao Long Bao i have ever eaten. Beside the use of such dearly priced ingredient, the flavors were light and with one bite, the skin of the xiao long bao gave way gently with the warm flavorful soup stock flowing into the mouth and the fillings melting lusciously in the mouth. What a joy it was.
The highlight of the day – 3 tier high tea set filled with a medley of dainty and delicate savory and sweet treats. At the top tier consist of some fried oysters with seaweed and milo ice cream. The milo ice cream was a hit, while the fried oysters were a little dry lacking of the juiciness. As we move downwards to the middle tier, it was filled with savory shredded duck and swimmer crab on the crisp edge bruschetta, truffle egg sandwich and earl grey creme brulee. Everything on the middle tier was so delish with the earl grey creme brulee being more unique and outstanding. Faint traces of earl grey warms up your palette with the soft smooth custard that melts in the mouth. Finally onward to the last tier of the high tea set which consist of all the saccharine treats such as scones, chocolate cornflakes, strawberry cheesecake, truffle white chocolate, chocolate mousse cake and pistachio macaroons to end your high tea on a sweet note. Personally prefer both the cakes the most, they were so intricate and tasted so subtle. The truffle white chocolate on the other hand is one full of intriguing flavor that will amaze you and i shall keep you in suspense for that!
A nice gesture from Sky on 57 to gave my sis a complimentary birthday cake treat as well. It was something simple yet sweet.
It was indeed a satisfying high tea set we had at Sky on 57. It was an amazing afternoon we had surrounded by the lovely skyline of Singapore while indulging ourselves in all the scrumptious treats. I know many will agree with me that, though the price we paid for is on the steeper end, but accompanied by such an aesthetic pleasure and ambiance is what makes it all worth while.
