Axis Bar and Lounge~ It's been a long time since I last post. December!~ Always my busy, joyous and fun month. Ok back to the review. You may notice that suddenly I have a string of posts on Afternoon Teas. Afternoon Tea is now in the trend for me and my friends. Again I was looking for a afternoon tea place for another of my very good friend birthday celebration. As I went through many reviews of afternoon tea, Axis is the ONE this round.
Ambience
The arm chair seats were facing full-length glass window. The view is quite nice. It is situated at the level 4. The view will be even more awesome if it is situated at the higher levels. There weren't people around but the window seats are all full. axis_ambience axis_table_layout
Service
As I informed the staff that it was a birthday celebration, they were sweet to offer a complimentary cake and ask whether there is any dietary requirement of the birthday girl. I am so impressed. However, I didn't feel very good when we were keep being reminded that there will be a second seating coming. It feel like so stressful that we had to rush to finish up all the food. Believe me! There is really a lot to eat. Perhaps they can consider to have smaller portion afternoon tea set since they want to have 2 seatings. Of cos, the afternoon set will need to be cheaper then *Winkz*.
Food
~Afternoon Tea~
They have about 24 different TWG tea selections. Looks like a lot of afternoon tea place are using Singapore based TWG tea company tea selections these days. Cool! Our own Singapore brand! Unfortunately they didn't had the pink flamingo that I love at Fairmont. The afternoon tea starts with Citrus Fruit Jelly. Taste like yuzu. It gets me all ready for the rest of afternoon tea. axis_yuzu axis_yuzu2
Next come the Yuzu Prawn Terrine with Manuka Aioli, Foie Gras Chawanmushi with Sourdough Soil and Citrus Marshmallow....Bacon-Anchovy Creme with Lemon Candied Beets in Mini Spinach Cone...Citrus-dusted Lobster Sandwich..Smoked Salmon Canape with Ikura Mano Salsa...Passion Cream Cheese Sandwich and Caramelized Walnuts...Hawaiian Chicken Wrap with Compressed Pineapple...The sandwich didn't appeal as the bread was a bit dry ...Foie Gras Chawanmushi with Sourdough Soil and Citrus Marshmallow feel so exotic with so many different flavor merging together. Intriguing. axis_sandwich axis_cone
So what's next? Citrus Cinnamon Scone...Madagascar Golden Raisin Scone...Lemongrass-infused chicken mushroom puff..Citrus Seafood Marinara Pie..Hmmm sound like a Citrus Theme...Honestly, I didn't' eat the puffs. Not that it is not nice. I just feel that I need to leave space for the other desserts. Puffs are easy to take away. Hence, we request them to pack it up and asked my friend to bring home. I tried the scones. Quite nice but didn't leave any deep impression of them. axis_scone axis_puff
Last but not least is the Lovely Tier presentation of Irish Baileys Bread and Butter Pudding...Lemon Vanilla Meringue Tart...Coffee Chestnut Caramel Cake...Lime Tanariva Choux....Almond Cherry Oat Pie...Pistachio Gianduja Ganache...They look quite lonely as most of the items are already served earlier. I thought they should try to fill up the tiers a bit more and it will look more appetising. axis_tier axis_cream axis_sweet axis_sweet2
Happy Birthday Complimentary Cake! So sweet of them. It was a lovely cake but so hard to finish after so many sweet desserts from the afternoon tea. However, I still want to give a big thank you to them for the lovely gesture. axis_birthday_cake
~Conclusion~
We ordered the following:
- 2 Afternoon Tea sets (S$42 per person, S$80 for 2)
The place is chill and cozy with a nice view. It is nice place to hang out with friends or have a romantic date with your loved one. It is accessible as it is near City Hall MRT station. It is also near to a couple of shopping malls (Marina Square, Suntec City and Raffles City). Easy to go shopping/movie after the afternoon tea. By the way, I do notice that their menu changes quite often. Do check out the latest menu before deciding to go there.
