Why tussle with the rest of the city when you can have a leisurely afternoon indulging in high tea delights, overlooking the sprawling horizon of lush greenery?
Mention “high tea” and it immediately conjures up mental images of long lazy afternoons, and time spent leisurely grazing upon light bites and tea snacks. The Carvery’s new high tea lunch buffet offers a combined lunch and tea menu, retaining the popular highlights from its usual lunchtime buffet, with a new selection of sweet and savoury bites that will satisfy both the hungry diners who are looking to fill their appetites and the grazers who like to try a little bit of everything.
If we must recommend a ‘must-try’, the roast beef wins the recommendation, hands down. This is The Carvery after all, a restaurant that has built its reputation on the quality of the premium roasts it serves daily. Executive Chef Ian Hioe has chosen to showcase Rosedale Ruby beef for the weekend menu, an Angus Charolais breed that has been raised on both pasture and grain, producing sweet and marvelously marbled beef perfect for the roast.
If that is not enough to fill your plate, graze on the new high tea items, such as pulled pork or skirt steak sandwiches, the ever popular Croque Monsieur, Angry Wings and the enticing Truffled Mac & Cheese.
Complementing the buffet is a special selection of artisanal Clipper Tea, available as part of the buffet. Whether you pick from a gentle floral tea, a spicy infusion or a robust brew, grab a pot to go with your meal.
The Carvery at Park Hotel Alexandra may not typically spring to mind for high tea, but with its new high tea lunch buffet, and the dining experience nested in the quaint Alexandra enclave with the view, it might just be the spot to consider if you want a venue just outside of the hassle and hype of the typical brunch haunts.
The Carvery’s Weekend High Tea and will be served every Saturday and Sunday between 12.00 to 3.30pm. It is priced at $42++ for adults and $21++ for children aged 11 and below. Online reservations for The Carvery can be made via chope.co, telephone at 6828 8880 or via email email@example.com.
