The invitation from Atrium Bar to savour Pan Pacific Singapore Nostalgic Weekend High Tea Buffet was accepted almost instantly. We admit we do have a weakness for Peranakan fares. Taking place on every weekend from 2.30pm to 5.30pm, the elegant long Atrium Bar transforms into a gastronomic line of unlimited Peranakan signatures and English classics, enhanced with live stations helmed by their chefs. Pan Pacific Singapore Nostalgic Weekend High Tea Buffet presents the perfect weekend indulgence of both Peranakan delights and English high tea essentials to satisfy friends and family members with diverse palate.
Pan Pacific Singapore Nostalgic Weekend High Tea Buffet – Peranakan Delights and Live Stations
Die-hard Peranakan fans must not miss the hearty Pacific Lobster Laksa, a recipe created by their resident Nyonya Chef Nancy Teo. You must also not miss the all-time favourites – the D-I-Y Kueh Pie Tee and Nyonya Chicken Curry with French Baguette. Against these heavyweights, the Popiah with Sweet Turnips and Condiments have to take the backseat.
Apart from the classics, their chefs have also creatively infused Peranakan ingredients and spices into Peranakan Pork Sausage with Achar, Otah Quiche, Ayam Panggang Skewers and a special Dish of the Day to excite your taste buds.
Of course, a Peranakan high tea is never complete without the colourful Nyonya Kueh, and their popular Pandan Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake, Heritage Coconut Scones with Kaya and Pineapple Jam, accompanied by the new Tart Blanc with Peach and Salted Yolk and Cantonese Sponge Cake with Salted Yolk. Our personal favourite – savour the heritage coconut scones with clotted cream and jams. It’s heavenly!
Pan Pacific Singapore Nostalgic Weekend High Tea Buffet – English Selection
Start with the savoury highlights including Roasted Beef and Apple Remoulade on Ciabatta, Norwegian Salmon and Fruit Puree on Malt Toast and Foie Gras Terrine and Fig Marmalade on Brioche. We must bring your attention to the Foie Gras Terrine. The rich taste of rich foie gras is orgasmic, you would not be forgiven if you miss it at the buffet.
Take a break from the sandwiches and go for the Mini Wagyu Beef Sliders or the Wild Mushroom and Cheese Quiche for a change. Round up the weekend high tea with a plethora of petite sweets ranging from the Matcha Yuzu Lychee Entremet, Araguani Hazelnut Royaltine Entremet, a special Cake of the Month, Homemade Bonbons to Raisin Scones.
Pan Pacific Singapore Nostalgic Weekend High Tea Buffet – New Beverages
The Nostalgic Weekend High Tea Buffet comes with two beverages of your choice. New additions to the beverage menu include two special cold brew teas – the Earl Grey infused with Orange and Cinnamon and Chamomile infused with Berries. For those who prefer the freshly brewed tea or coffee, pair the delectable canapés with a range of TWG teas or Lavazza coffee.
Pan Pacific Singapore Nostalgic Weekend High Tea Buffet – Peranakan Chocolate Boutique

Put your best Little Nyonya (or Baba) foot forward with their gorgeous High Heels with Chocolate Truffles, inspired by the Peranakan beaded slippers, and A Gentleman’s Dress Shoe with Chocolate Truffles, or treat yourself with an edible arm candy, a chocolate handbag. Perfect as gifts, these quirky fashion statements are available from SGD28 each.
