This summer, world-renowned Thai restaurant Mango Tree have jumped on board the afternoon tea train. Designed by their executive chef, the Thai Refresh Afternoon Tea features speciality frozen drinks, exotic Thai bites and sweet delicacies.
The Thai Refresh Afternoon Tea includes a snack platter, an all-pink dessert platter and your choice of shaved ice or a frozen smoothie. The savoury snack platter features traditional Thai faves: deep-fried shrimp cake, chicken wings, marinated chicken in pandan leaf and beef satay.
The dessert platter includes strawberry layer cake, pink coconut jelly and a choice of strawberry mousse puff or raspberry jam cake.
In the spotlight are the brand-new shaved ice concoctions, served in martini glasses, and frozen smoothies. Shaved ice with mango sticky rice is a mix of mango-flavoured shaved ice and Mango Tree’s signature dessert, whilst the Trio frozen smoothie and Cendor frozen smoothie are inspired by classic Thai drinks. Other thirst-quenching frozen drinks include shaved ice with coconut milk and grass jelly and pineapple shaved ice with mixed berries.
The price for a shaved ice or frozen smoothie with one of the platters is $98 per person, whilst for $128 you can indulge in both platters with your frozen drink.
