Abode Bistro and Bar may be a hotel restaurant, but it's has an impressive high tea that has none of the stuffy vibes you'd expect from an upscale hotel. Think bottomless sparkling wine accompanied by a seasonal menu, and at a very reasonable $65 per person to boot.
On offer from Friday through Saturday, the sparkling high tea gets you two full hours of unlimited pours, plus your choice of tea from their Dilmah selection and an ever-changing menu of savoury and sweet bites.
The latest menu includes mushroom and goat's curd quiche, smoked salmon and cream cheese roulade and chicken, radicchio and apple slaw sandwiches. Pastries, of which there are six, feature caramel and passion fruit tarts, rhubarb jam and burnt mandarin macarons, as well as lemon meringue pie.
Abode Bistro and Bar's high tea runs every Friday from 2pm to 4pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11.30am to 1.30pm and 2pm to 4pm.
