Strait Back to Yesteryear

Singapore, 22 May 2014— Pan Pacific Singapore celebrates National Day with the introduction of the new Peranakan Afternoon Tea at Pacific Marketplace. From 16 June to 9 August, guests may embark on a culinary journey around the Malay Archipelago with an array of eight Nonya delights.

Presented in a four-tiered tiffin carrier reminiscent of lunchboxes used in Singapore of yesteryear, highlights include Kuay Pie Tee with Sweet Turnip and Prawn, and Open-Face Otak Sandwich with Quail Egg. The key highlight is the aromatic Nonya Chicken Curry served with freshly-baked French Baguette. Asian spices including cumin and turmeric used to make the rempah paste lend their aromatic lift to the succulent chicken pieces, giving the dish an added dimension in flavour.

End Afternoon Tea on a sweet note with traditional delights such as Kueh Lapis and Onde Onde, a sweetened rice cake topped with luscious coconut shavings, and filled with fragrant palm sugar. Guests may also reminisce over unlimited Ais Gem biscuits, a local snack characterized by colourful sugar frosting that would bring back memories of childhood.

Date: 16 June to 9 August 2014
Time: 3pm to 5pm
Price: $58++ for two adults with tea and coffee
Venue: Pacific Marketplace (Ground Level), 7 Raffles Boulevard, Singapore 039595
