Food Review: Afternoon High Tea at Halia, Raffles Hotel, SingaporeJuly 03, 2013
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.
