Treats For My Sweet

Lat­est Recipe restau­rant has been cel­e­brat­ing some of Sin­ga­pore’s loveli­est homegrown flavours since Au­gust, in­clud­ing deca­dent desserts for the sweet-toothed. From his pas­try kitchen, tal­ented chef Ed­win Leow plates out his quintessen­tial Parisian pleaser—éclairs. Pick from clas­sic flavours like vanilla and a zest of lemon, the pop­u­lar Choco­late Gold, and lo­cally-in­spired favourites such as pan­dan kaya and rasp­berry co­conut. En­joy a sweet af­ter­noon with a friend while tuck­ing into this Chic Treat set, fea­tur­ing two éclairs with fresh cof­fee or TWG tea at $10. Have room for more? Then bring home four of your favourite flavours for the same price (or $4 per piece) to be en­joyed later.

Tast­ing Dis­cov­er­ies

Some­times good things come in pe­tite parcels, and Le Méri­dien Sin­ga­pore, Sen­tosa’s Dis­cov­ery High Tea Ex­pe­ri­ence is ex­actly that. While stay­ing true to the French’s re­fined stan­dards, the chef has found ways to in­ject lo­cal twists into tra­di­tional Euro­pean treats, re­sult­ing in un­ex­pected sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ences on the palate. The brioche for in­stance has been up­dated with gen­er­ous fill­ings of savoury-sweet chilli crab, which pairs per­fectly with the other petits fours: mac­arons, choco­late gateau, rain­bowhued cakes, and savoury tarts for a de­light­ful tea ser­vice.

Lat­est Recipe restau­rant’s sig­na­ture and lo­cally-in­spired éclairs (avail­able in the Chic Treat set) are also in­cluded (in petit ver­sion) in this Dis­cov­ery High Tea Ex­pe­ri­ence, paired with brewed cof­fee or a pot of TWG tea at $39 for two daily from 2pm to 5pm.
