Lady M Champagne Bar - Lady M's First Champagne Bar in the World has Opened in ION Orchard

Lady M is a household name. Most of all would have at least tried their signature mille crepe cakes, which  the brand is famous for, but have you tried their savoury items before? Well, I haven't, until I visited their newest and sixth outlet in Singapore, Lady M Champagne Bar, on the third level of ION Orchard. Furnished with plush seats, marble tables, and gold finishings, Lady M's first ever champagne bar in the world promises a luxurious tea time where patrons can indulge in delicious champagne, exquisite cakes and outlet-exclusive signatures.

But do you know that their newest outlet at Millenia Walk sends out yummy breakfast delights too?

Regent Tea Lounge - An Indulgent Weekday Afternoon Tea in the Heart of Orchard

photo Regent Tea Lounge afternoon tea 9.jpg
Having tea on a weekday afternoon is not something that we can do very often. Hence, when we get the chance to kick back and enjoy a luxurious afternoon tea session, we have to make sure that we choose wisely, don't we? The weekday three-tier afternoon tea at Regent Singapore, which is affordably priced at $45/pax, promises to please your palate and fill you to the brim. The tea starts at 12pm, and runs all the way to 5pm. While I didn't spend the full 5 hours here, those who plan to have a long catch-up session with their beloved girl pals will definitely enjoy their time in the revamped colonial garden setting. While the typical afternoon tea sets offer just the stated set, and drinks, Regent has made it their top priority to ensure that guests are very well taken care of with the inclusion of a mini buffet that features mini pastries, salads, sandwiches, Italian cheeses and other small bites.

Staycation @ Pan Pacific Orchard

Sponsored Post

 photo P8076481.jpg

I honestly think that the location of Pan Pacific Orchard is impeccable. It gives you an impression of being away from city life but yet, it is actually in the heart of the city. It's only a short three to five minutes walk to Lido or Pacific Plaza. It's incredibly convenient! You can go shopping, catch a movie or go to the supermarket anytime!

Lobby Lounge @ Pan Pacific Orchard

Media Invite

The newly renovated Lobby Lounge at Pan Pacific Orchard has recently launched a spanking new Gourmet High Tea Buffet which features uniquely crafted tapas, desserts and most notably, three classic and signature dishes.

First of all, if you're wondering where Pan Pacific Orchard is, wonder no more!
Pan Pacific Orchard sits just a short distance behind Lido and Pacific Plaza. It is also a short walk from Palais Renaissance and Delfi Orchard. It is alot more accessible than you think! Its location gives a sense of exclusivity and serenity, away from the hustle and bustle of the city but it is in fact, very conveniently situated.





When X and I first took our seats, we couldn't help but soak up the atmosphere. With a slow and soothing tune playing in the background, the slightly warm lighting, and comfortable chairs, we knew we were in for a great afternoon. We met Abigail who told us more about the buffet and off we go to fill our rumbling tummies!

Smoked Duck with Plum Dressing

Scallop with Mango Salsa

Smoked Salmon Crostini

Chicken Mayo Sandwich

Cranberry Cream Cheese

Banana Strudel and Coconut Tarts

Raisin scones with sweetened cream and kaya
Abigail was telling us how a few Japanese tourists were skeptical about the green jam but fell in love with it and even asked where they could purchase it!




Iced Latte

Fairly decent tapas. I plucked up courage to try the hummus and egg and it was surprisingly sweet and yummy! My favourite has got to be the smoked duck with plum dressing!

Spanish-Bred Iberian-Cured Ham (available during weekend)
This was so so good. Thin savory pieces of ham, topped with pepper and accompanied with sweet melon. It just doesn't get better than this. Secretly wished I could have more of it!

Swiss Cottage Melting Raclette (available during weekend)

Abigail told us that the thin crackers are really awesome, and she was spot on! The crackers are paper thin and super crisp. They are also extremely fragrant and X loved it!

Gooey melting cheese that is not too overwhelmingly cheesy and it goes really well with the crackers

Now, introducing the Plates of Pleasure

We had the honour of meeting Executive Chef Andy who is one of the six chefs who had recently won an award at the Omni Hotels and Resorts' Simply Street Food Competition. Chef Andy is from Penang and when we asked him why he chose these three dishes to be on the menu, he told us that when Singaporeans go to Penang, they always eat Char Kway Teow, Prawn Noodles or Penang Laksa. Hence, he decided to bring a little piece of Penang to Singapore. This is probably the only place where you can taste these three really delectable Penang dishes. And the best part? You can have as much as you want!

"Peddler's" Char Kway Teow
with Pacific Blue Crab Meat and Canton Air-dried Sausage

This is Chef Andy's signature dish and it is also the dish that won him an award at the competition. Unlike the Char Kway Teow that we usually have, this carefully crafted dish is lighter in colour, drier and is perfectly charred. The cockles are smaller and do not carry the taste of "rust". This is definitely the nicest char kway teow I've ever had!

Penang Aromatic Spicy Prawn Noodle Broth
with Chinese Roasted Pork and Vietnamese Tiger Prawn

An appetizing and rich bowl of broth with a variety of ingredients that will tug at your heartstrings. The taste of the soup is enriched by the roasted pork which takes the place of our usual pork ribs. This dish is comforting, albeit a little too spicy for me, and delightfully satisfying.

Penang Famous Assam Laksa
Rich Tamarind Fish Stock and Farmed Sea Bass

This is definitely not your regular laksa. There isn't coconut or prawns or cockles and neither is it spicy. The soup is incredibly tasty, unconventionally sour, and above all, remarkably delicious. The single piece of sea bass is extremely tender and fresh. If I were to choose my utmost favourite dish of the three, this would be it! X loved every single of the three dishes too but this was undoubtedly his number one too! Mouthwateringly good!

The banana strudel is a must try! Loved the sweet burst of banana when I bit into the strudel!

The desserts were pretty average.

The buffet comes with free flow Pacific Blend Coffee($10-$16) and Tea from TWG($12). I tried the butterscotch coffee and I really liked it! The chefs are currently still fine-tuning the buffet spread and the selection will be changed quite frequently so don't you worry about having the same goodies when you pop by again! Furthermore, we really liked how everything in the buffet spread is individually portioned!

The Gourmet High Tea Buffet is priced at $28++ on Weekdays and $38++ on weekends. Although the selection of tapas and desserts is not very huge, I still feel its pretty value for money!

We'll like to thank Abigail for inviting us and for a really wonderful afternoon and, of course, Chef Andy for telling us more about the buffet!
