Brunch on the Bridge (TWG at Marina Bay Sands)

TWG might be a tad snooty (still not as atas as PS Cafe), but it’s the place that most women who love high tea, would appreciate. The cutlery and table settings were all just so pretty. The natural light flooding in, watching the tourists go by in sampans in the artificial canal below, the beautiful surroundings. The only thing that marred the experience was the constant lucky draw announcements over the loud speakers. It was quite annoying and drowned out the soothing classical music played by the tea lounge. The food here was perfection and it was a wonderful place to celebrate a special day.

With a dizzying array of hundreds of teas (black, white and green), you’ll be spoilt for choice and want to try more than one.

Some of us opted for the crepe, from the ala carte menu that served from noon, instead of brunch that served from 10am to 3pm.

I absolutely loved the generous serving of vegetable quiche. The crust was buttery deliciousness. The portion of green salad was so generous, it was hard to finish.

Loved that bits of sweet pumpkin in the quiche.

Another of the brunch options, if you don’t quite care for quiche.

The orange juice was extremely orange and pleasant to look at, but I wish that it could have been chilled instead. The ice melted quickly and it became dilute.

You could pick from the various cakes and tarts from the counter. It was part of the brunch menu.

I had a raspberry tart, but I was hoping for a lemon tart instead. I had a lemon tart previously at the ION branch and it was out of this world.

If you come here you must have the macarons. They are the best I have tasted in Singapore. We picked rose and caramel. Oh the joy of almond, egg white, sugar and cream. No cloying sweetness here. It was perfection.

We also tried the creme brulee from the ala carte menu. Even though we were filled up to the brim by then, who can resist the concoction of a kitchen blowtorch taken to a custardy mix of eggs, sugar, vanilla and cream.

The TWG is located just above this canal.

  1. Looks great! My sister is visiting Singapore for a few days next month so I’ve sent this to her. My mother in law is from there and I lived there as a kid – have not got back to Singapore enough… so I might live through your lovely blog on it.

      That’s so great. I hope she gets a chance to visit Marina Bay Sands.

      Thanks so much 🙂 I would love to bring back memories for you and since Singapore changes so much there’s always something new to blog about.

        I’m the sister of LadylovesCake. Your blog is really helpful. Marina Bay Sands looks fantastic. I definitely want to go there for tea! I’m only in the city for two days though really, one of which I fly the evening of, so I would love to know your must sees. I think I might try a night safari at the zoo but other than that my planner is a blank canvas, aside from seeing a friend who used to be a housemate. Any tips? Is Sentosa necessary? I was at a party recently and I said “I’m going to Singapore…” Two girl friends of the host did this “SenTOsa!” in a singing type voice. That kind of put me off… I know that Singapore is so much more than Sentosa Island right?

    I would recommend Haji Lane (the whole of the arab street area which is known as Kampong Glam) & Little India 🙂 Loads of colour and vibrant.

    I did quite a number of posts about Kampong Glam which is our Malay quarter.

    And if you have time here are my posts about Little India.
