D9 Cakery Hilton Singapore – Ultimate Saturday High Tea Buffet With Singapore Flavours
Dessert lovers in search for the ultimate hotel high tea buffet can look this way.
D9 Cakery at Hilton Singapore features an impressive 6-meter dessert showcase, which I think is unheard of in Singapore (for now).
Its weekly Saturday High Tea Buffet from 12pm to 3pm, showcases many of their best homemade patisserie items.
Priced from $41++ per person, this is quite value for the money for the spread.
Plus, Citibank Cardholders enjoy a “PAY 2, DINE 3” promotion up to the end of March 2018. Time to gather your friends over!
This includes the signature Hilton cheesecakes in flavours of Classic American, Blueberry, Caramel, Pecan & Maple; delicious homemade cakes such as Green Tea Matcha, Cassis Caramel, Red Velvet, Fudgy Chocolate; Gourmet Dessert Jars; freshly baked scones; artfully crafted pralines, chocolates, macarons and more.
Not forgetting the Lemon Chocolate Fountain comprising of 33% Valrhona White Chocolate with homemade financier, marshmallows and fresh strawberries.
The Saturday High Tea Buffet has gone on a recent revamp, with the inclusion of more Singapore flavours and savoury items, while keeping the price THE SAME.
With the addition of these new items, the spread has been extended all the way to the back of the restaurant with a number of “live stations”.
The “live stations” include Popiah, Kueh Pie Tee, Singapore Laksa, Chicken & Lamb Satay, Hainanese Chicken Rice, and Oyster Omelette.
I personally like this better as dishes are cooked fresh, and there is more interactivity with the chefs.
Other Singapore favourites you can expect include Seafood Otah-Otah, selection of dim sum such as Steamed Siew Mai, Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf, Spicy Sardine Bun, and Toasted Kaya Bun.
D9 Cakery Singapore Flavours & Savoury Items Highlights:
Hainanese Chicken Rice
Succulent poached chicken with aromatic rice. I liked the tangy, not-too-spicy chilli sauce here, and that made a whole lot of difference.
Without fail, I won’t leave a hotel buffet without trying their Laksa. Hilton’s take is quite a worthy version, with rich and coconuty gravy, cooked ala minute to your preference.
Popiah and Kueh Pie Tee
Chicken and Lamb Satay
You can trust your grills with Hilton Singapore. This is one of my personal highlights of this hightea, where the satay sticks contained relatively large and juicy pieces of meat, beautifully grilled with a thin layer of char.
Love your “Orh Jien”? This version includes not the small ones, but huge ocean-trawled oysters – fried with generous portion of eggs and rice flour.
The fresh oysters used elevated this street food to another level.
Singapore Chilli Crab with Golden Mantou
Love your chilli crabs with mantou but hate to do the cracking and peeling?
This is a daintier affair. Fluffy buns deep fried till golden brown, with the chilli crab sauce coming separate which you can pour over or use as a dip.
Crisp savoury ‘fruit salad” prepared by the chef, added with prawn paste, tamarind paste, sugar, chilli.
I liked that the prawn paste had a nice sticky consistency which gave the ingredients an even coating without being overly thick.
Soft Pork Curry Bun Coated with Floss
These buns contained soft pork cubes cooked in curry, sandwiched in a soft bun, buttered then sprinkled on with floss.
Ice Kachang and Chendol
At the desert “live station”, you can get the chef to do up traditional desserts of Ice Kachang and Chendol with your favourite ingredients (add more of this, don’t include that), without getting your hands messy.
Local & Asian Dessert Spread – Onde-Onde Cake and Thai Red Ruby Gourmet Dessert Jar
In sync with the Singapore flavours theme, the D9 Cakery dessert counter has included a limited Onde-Onde Cake and Gourmet Dessert Jar with Thai Red Ruby – water chestnuts coated with rice and tapioca flour soaked in coconut milk.
The Onde-Onde Cake with light pandan sponge layers, gula Melaka and desiccated coconut was done European style, yet was full of local kueh kueh flavours. Interesting.
The D9 Saturday High Tea Buffet also comes served with free flow coffee a selection of 10 choices of TWG Tea, featuring finest Asian and European blends for a complete high tea experience.
