We all drink tea and afternoon tea especially to get refreshed…But when this drinking tea process takes the form of a festive tea and the place where you have it is absolutely superlative, the whole thing goes to a different level – zen!!! The experience becomes THE EXPERIENCE par excellence – one that is to be remembered for a long time..

I am going to share about Capella Singapore’s designer home-style kitchen, Chef’s Table and its Afternoon Tea. Read on and make your reservations for a beautiful culinary ride!

My mum was visiting us and since am a working mom, I hardly get any time to be with her. Glad that the media invite came at the right time so when I was on leave; decided to bring her to the Chef’s Table. My critic-cum-perfectionist mom thanked me tons for this later. Whoa, that means the Festive tea must be that that good. ♥

It was drizzling that day so already-beautiful-Capella was looking even more gorgeous! Capella hotel provides one of the best hotel experiences in Singapore. It’s a place where old and new fuse together in luxury. Curved, modern buildings gently intermingle with the colonial buildings and the verdant, vibrant rainforest spread over 30 acres of land. The South China Sea is just in the backyard.

Here’s the Chef’s Table – cool, cozy, classy

‘Tis the season to be jolly and Capella’s Chef’s Table was displaying its full Christmas glory – complete with Christmas House cakes. Aren’t they so adorable?

Chef’s Table presents a new dining concept breaking the epicurean frontier. You can savor irresistible epicurean fare prepared à la minute in the comforts of a home-styled kitchen. It’s truly a feast for the senses when we enjoy quality customized menus masterfully prepared in front of our eyes. The personal chef for the day creates a dazzling array of mouth-watering cuisine with impressive culinary finesse, utilizing only the freshest seasonal ingredients.

Chef’s Table at Capella Singapore offers a luxuriously appointed dining space for up to 14 persons, as well as a fully equipped designer kitchen.

Table is set – inviting you and gently igniting your craving for a great food.

It’s called as the “Afternoon Tea” so obviously there would be tea. In Chef’s Table, you decide which Tea you would like to drink – Jasmine Pearl or Himalayan or Milky Oolong. You can sniff and then decide. How nice! These are the things that convert the mere act of drinking tea into a ritual.

Our afternoon tea at Chef’s table was the perfect balance of specially curated sweet and savory delights. ♥♥♥

Simple Tart but perfectly baked, perfectly yummy.

Fish-lovers, you would agree that Salmon never looked so tempting. Being a vegetarian, I couldn’t eat it though I saw some happy faces around me.

Cranberry Scones – yum yum yum. Eat alone or with the premium jams and creams, they taste heavenly in every way. It helps that they are not overly sweet. Served fresh with that straight-out-of-the-oven fragrance!

These cuties were a bite-sized version of a burger and sandwich but loaded with taste.

Going bonkers with choices! Which one to start with OR should I eat all of them together? Choicest of pastries and cakes like:

  • Assorted Christmas Cookies
  • 70% Dark Chocolate Cheesecake with Gingerbread Crust
  • Lemon Tartlet with White Chocolate
  • Apricot Cardamom Chocolate Sacher

The best part about the afternoon tea @ Chef’s table was that it didn’t make us feel heavy at all. It was gentle on stomach and loving for taste buds. The atmosphere is such that along with quality food, it simulates great conversations with your loved ones. Special mention of the service – so humble, so informative and so caring! When I showed the pics later to my hubby and kids, they said why I didn’t take them with me!!! So one many more trip trips to Capella are expected ♥

From lively dinner celebrations, or entertaining intimate business luncheons, to personalized cooking classes with world-class chefs, the Chef’s Table promises a unique gastronomic experience one will never forget. So when are you visiting Chef’s Table?
