Met a friend for tea and cakes at Cafe Pal in Middle Road (close to Shaw Towers at Beach Road) , a place which also serves Thai food from a nearby restaurant. While the decor of the place was simple, you could see the effort put into the tea and the bakes. Reminded me of how the Japanese would go to great lengths for the little touches that would make the difference. The chiffon cake was fresh and soft while the fruit teas were lovely. I ordered lychee tea which was very refreshing but what was really good was the blend of oolong, pomelo and yuzu which my friend ordered.
Loved the presention too. The teas were served in glass teapots with flower teacups and saucers. They had little cornflake cookies on the side with simple and beautiful leaves adorning it. Must come back again for the Thai food and of course the fruit teas.
