The savoury tier is filled with surprises to be unveiled.

Caprese Tart

Start with the must-try Caprese Tart – a personal favourite of the AVENUE ONE team – where the tangy balsamic glaze with a hint of chocolate elevates the classic combination of fresh vine tomatoes and mozzarella bocconcini.

Another standout is the Waffles Basket with Duck Rillette. The rich duck rillette is perfectly complemented by the sweet and citrusy orange chocolate, making for a truly unique and delicious bite.

For those seeking something intriguing, the Sustainable Salmon with White Chocolate is a delightful surprise. The white chocolate creates a creamy sauce that adds a touch of sweetness without overpowering the delicate flavour of the salmon.

The sweet tier is a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.

The “Stone” is a visual masterpiece – a Guanaja chocolate mousse disguised as a pebble – and the one I had came with a whimsical bee on top. Don’t be fooled by its looks though, because the mousse is pure decadent bliss.

The Framboise Flower Pot is equally charming, with a raspberry chocolate pot nestled amongst “soil” made of yuzu curd and topped with a dollop of whipped mascarpone cream.

And of course, no afternoon tea is complete without scones. Here, they come in both double chocolate and vanilla flavours, served with clotted cream, strawberry jam, and a rich chocolate ganache for dipping.

The Chocolate Island Dream is an alcoholic milkshake that promises to transport you to a cocoa haven, while the non-alcoholic options include the refreshing Urban Farm Elixir and the citrusy Yuzu Fizzle.
