Located at South Wharf in Melbourne, the Pan Pacific, with its elegant wooden finishes throughout, is one of the premier luxury hotels in the city. And with all good luxury hotels, stunning views, five-star leisure facilities, a stunning foyer, and the comfiest bed you'll ever sleep in aren't enough. There needs to be world-class dining options, too, and with several options available, it's got you covered.

The highlight of its dining experiences, however, is surely its high tea. A bespoke experience presented by its director of culinary experiences, Deepak Mishra, the high tea here is a three-tiered experience of sweets, savoury and warm delights. The offerings are served with Singaporean TWG Tea, Vittoria Coffee and Veuve Clicquot champagne, with options for an extra glass available.

Cold savoury treats include torn burrata baby peas with asparagus, bush apple gel, candied macadamia and olives; mini lobster rolls with finger lime and Yarra Valley salmon roe; and egg and black truffle with aged parmesan and caviar, roasted onion and Tasmanian pepper mousse.

For a warm, savoury treat, it offers Serrano ham croquettes with truffle aioli and Serrano crisp; cauliflower and Sebago potato petite pies with whipped goat's curd and golden raisin; and slow-cooked pork belly with Davidson Plum gel and soused cucumber in a soft bun.

From the patisserie, expect a green tea sphere with milk chocolate crèmeux, strawberry gum and berry compote and hazelnut dacquoise; a calamansi and mango tart with jasmine tea veil and Geraldton Wax; and a black Sesame, almond praline ring with wattleseed sable.

The highlight of high tea is always the scones and here is no different. Its scones include warm buttermilk and orange blossom, white chocolate and lavender. They are served with a delicious strawberry and rose petal preserve with lemon curd and clotted cream.
