Here’s an afternoon tea that is inspired by local flavours and it’s only available for a limited time

August may be coming to an end but it doesn’t mean you have to end your National Day celebrations. At least not at Portman’s Bar, the resident cocktail bar at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay.

Portman's Bar Heritage Afternoon Tea Picnic in an Oasis picnic basket

Presenting Heritage Afternoon Tea Picnic in an Oasis, Portman’s Bar is serving an array of sweet and savoury bites served in a picnic basket. It isn’t only the display that are on point; the treats are also enlivened with herbs, edible flowers and vegetables, freshly picked from its Urban Farm.

Now you’ll be wondering, what part of it has to do with National Day?

Here’s where it gets interesting: these afternoon tea bites contain elements of local flavours such as Milo Dinosaur and Singapore Chilli Crab.

AVENUE ONE visited Portman’s Bar to try out these goodies and our favourite savoury item was the Nyonya Otah Otah Tortilla and Satay. For sweets, the Ondeh Ondeh was irresistible. The Milo Dinosaur Scone was also surprisingly delectable and went very well with the Vanilla Pear Preserve.
