Food Review: Afternoon High Tea at Halia, Raffles Hotel, Singapore00:49:00
If there is no such thing as BRUNCH in this world, my next favorite meal of the day would undoubtedly be the Afternoon High Tea. I'm not sure why I love these "in-between" meals. Perhaps because there's just something slightly rebellious to eating at times when not as many people are eating, or because there's a sense of luxury of time if you could do brunch or afternoon high tea. You enjoy the company with the people you dine with more, I think!
Halia at Raffles Hotel took over the now defunct Seah Street Deli, which was known for it's old-school American deli food and sorely missed. I'm glad a restaurant that is at least up to standard was its replacement, though Halia has more of a European and Asian fusion slant to their food. As you can see, the decor maintained elements from the old, but updated with the new. I like how it fits perfectly with the architecture and heritage of the hotel.
