On Tripadvisor.com, I’d read about the wonderful afternoon tea that The Chedi’s Restaurant offered, and I made it a point to try it on our trip :) The afternoon tea cost THB400 for one person, THB700 for two. In the end, we ordered 1 set and shared it, while Marc had an additional order of ice cream.
Pretty china makes good food look even better.
Marc’s ice cream served in a glass ice-bath! Fancy.
The blank sprinkles are vanilla bean bits! We ordered praline and vanilla.
And here we have it – the sweet, scones, and savory tiers! I love the tiered serving tray.
For sweets, we have…
(L-R) Profiterole, Passionfruit macaron, blueberry macaron, The Chedi fruit cake, chocolate sacher torte, vanilla creme patiserre with mango
Valrhona chocolate pot – decadent and more-ish. This is also part of the ‘Sweet’ section.
The pretty blueberry macaron was really delish!
The texture was perfect (at least, to me) – a good amount of stickiness, and a bit of crunch. SO GOOD.
The 2nd tier was the scones – plain and raisin scones, lemon curd, butter, and jam.
The scones were crumbly and buttery-salty… mmmm. Good on their own, even better with butter.
The final tier – the savory section.
(L-R) Cucumber & egg soft bread bun, spring chicken & confit duck pie, ham & cheese soft bread bun, smoked salmon & rocket pesto finger sandwich
The savory section was so good, I devoured it before I could take any close-ups of each.
Overall, the food was mostly as good as it looked :) Only the Chedi fruit cake and the lone raisin scone was left over. We polished off everything else (and skipped dinner… for supper). And till today, I still dream of that blueberry macaron! Mmmm.
