Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands
posts displayed by tag
We made reservations at Daniel Boulud’s db Bistro Moderne, one of the several celebrity restaurants at the Shoppes at the Marina Bay Sands. For your information, their roster includes Mario Batali’s Pizzeria and Osteria Mozza (actually tried to make reservations there but they were booked up for the next two days), Tetsuya Wakuda’s Waku Ghin, Wolfgang Puck’s Cut and Guy Savoy’s self titled restaurant.
The number of high tea places in the Shoppes at the Marina Bay Sands seems endless. After our pleasant foray into the world of high tea in Singapore with TWG, we decided to check out High Society. Featuring plush red velvet seats and curtains, gold colored chandeliers, black and white tiled floors, a bar full of nothing but Veuve-Cliquot and Moet, the place definitely gives off a more fancy and uppity air. Despite the setting, the service isn’t snobby at all and you can really enjoy a nice cup of tea or coffee and a dessert quite comfortably.
Clearly influenced by their former British colonizers, TWG Tea, otherwise known as The Wellness Group is a Singaporean tea house primarily known for its impressive selection of teas (well over 100!) and delicious desserts. The loose leaves of the different blends are held in pots that are clearly identified by number and name and are placed on shelves that slide back to reveal more tea several rows deep.
