Durian High Tea @ The Peranakan, Orchard

What are most Singaporean excited about? Durian!
What if we can eat and mix Durian in our High Tea Dishes, wouldn't it be great?

Durian Lovers would love to know Durian over lunch or High Tea is possible now at "The Peranakan" Restaurant at Orchard!

There's Two High Tea Set, you can choose from the current Peranakan Promotion!
*Gila Durian*
is served with 5 Course of Durian feast!

Everything in Gila Durian package is all about Durian! Everything you eat here mix with Durian and it is all of good and fresh quality Durian; XO Durian, D24, Mao Shang Wan.
Let me introduce, Gila Durian comes with Appetiser; Toasties with Durian & Durian Pengat.
Starters; Pandan Chiffon Cake with Durian (Intermezzo of the day)
Dessert of the day; is ofcourse Authentic Peranakan Durian Chendol!
We were also served with free flow of drinks; Lemongrass/Pandan Tea, which is also my very favourite of the day.
Those crystals that were served with the Food makes our Hightea excitement goes to the next level. And... Definitely photogenic too!
One thing I learnt from this meal is, fish skin can break the taste from the Durian and refresh our tastebud. It's really thoughtful to think of and served.
The serving above is for 2pax.

If you're a mild Durian Lover, and want something more filling for High Tea. Here's something for you.
*The Peranakan High Tea Set*
It feels like eating Buffet to me, I got to try many different dishes at one go. Huge varieties with a much better Food Presentation than having Buffet. Everything is served for us to do sampling all in the Peranakan Tray, such as Kueh Pie Ti, Ngoh Hiang, Mee Siam, Bee Hiam Toast, Pineapple Tart, and alot of Durain Puree (Aw.. I'm so in love with the Durian Puree!) & etc.
In this set, there are 12 different dishes for us to try it all. The portion are pretty generous and can be quite filling.
This serving is also for 2pax.
At The Peranakan, I especially love the way they present their Food and also style. Even plain dishes on my table can looks so exquisite. The details are thoughtful.
Moreover, the interior of the Restaurants plays a part to make us feel good and comfy.
This is my favourite corner of the restaurant. It's a good #OOTD wall!
The Restaurant were placed with beautiful chandelier all over. It feels like we're having Royal meals when we were served with Gila Durian Crystal dishes.
One other detail I love about The Peranakan is, they served their Food with Fresh orchids. Not only it is beautiful, but it makes a good combination with the interior spaces as well as the whole ambience and experience during our High Tea. Once again, thoughtful details.
Last but not least, this is my Family Photo with the Chef & Owner of The Peranakan.
As some may know Chef Raymond Khoo had been in F&B for about 30 years and he had ventured into many F&B businesses internationally before coming into this as a retirement plan for himself. Chef Raymond Khoo, is very passionate in his career and serving premium quality food to his customer. I am totally impressed in his generosity and the restaurant's Food presentation, details & style.

The Peranakan Dishes are Aunthentic Traditional and it is handed down through three generations of Nonya Baba family.  

Some of the comments I've got from my family:

My brother commented: "Durian Set was an approipriate refreshing blend of durians in numerous form".

My Fiance commented: "Great vibe and comfortable space, Thank you for the Great experience!"

My Mom loves almost everything here! And ofcourse, I love all the Durians mixing well with the Lemongrass / Pandan Tea.
Enjoy the great combination of tasty food and comfy wild ambience!
