Picnics are a great way to get together with friends. However, in Singapore’s hot and humid tropical climate, it’s probably quite difficult to find a picnic spot outdoors that won’t make us the picnic for mosquitoes instead— which is why you need to check out Portman’s Bar’s amazing nature-inspired afternoon tea set.
A comfortable indoor garden setting
At Portman’s Bar’s situated at Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay, you’ll be able to enjoy all the perks of a picnic from being surrounded by lush greenery and chirping birds to decadent sweet treats and savoury bites—-all in the comfort of their amazing indoor garden setting.
Picnic In The Oasis afternoon tea set
At S$58++ per person (minimum two pax), tuck into the afternoon tea set aptly named Picnic In The Oasis, prepared lovingly with fresh farm-to-table herbs, flowers and vegetables picked from the hotel’s very own rooftop garden.
Some of the savoury menu items you can expect to sample include the Crab and Egg Salad served with charcoal bread and lemon mint. There’s also Applewood-Smoke Sustainable Salmon served with crunchy cucumber and dill mayonnaise as well as Classic French Duck Rillette with mulberry relish and beetroot tart and more. As for the sweet options, you have the Mont Blanc with pandan-infused mascarpone cream with aromatic coffee finger sponge, Minty Choco-wich with Speculoos chocolate ganache, mint cream and chocolate biscuit, and more.
The afternoon tea set is also served in a dainty picnic basket. Picture yourself sitting in a lush green garden setting and enjoying treats straight out of a picnic basket. Sounds like the perfect place to live out our cottage core dreams. The coffee and tea are also free-flow so extra points to Portman’s Bar for that.
The fact that these treats are made with fresh ingredients sourced from the hotel’s very own rooftop garden is a huge cherry on top of the cake as eating local is also extremely beneficial to the environment. This ties in perfectly with the nature-inspired and botanical theme of the entire place.
Free-flow prosecco and champagne
Plus, if you’d like to make your afternoon tea Irish, you can also add on S$38++ for free-flow Prosecco or S$68++ for Perrier-Jouët champagne. Who says happy hour is only from five to seven?
P.S., reservations are required so be sure to make one here to avoid disappointment.
