Visited on 27 May 2018 (Sun). 10 SCOTTS exudes an aura of elegance and relaxation with its contemporary decor complemented by a breathtaking view of the cascading waterfall. This place is quite 'atas' so i would suggest that you not dress too casually.  

The ambience here is those 'tai-tai style' of high tea with comfy sofa and cushions for you to couch. It makes you feel right at home (Residential-Style Lounge)

These are the best seats to see cascading waterfall by the window but sad to say that there is no table for 2 at this area, here are for big groups.. 

Chilled Juices & Ice Water

Artisan Cheese / Bakery / Cold Cuts / Salads 

Organic Tart, Goat's Cheese, Sour Cream, Chives

Soft roll, Blue Swimmer Crab Meat
Mayonnaise, Lemon, Dill 

Baguette, Champagne Ham, Gyuere Cheese
Dijon Mustard 

Scones & Blue Berry Walnut Scones
Clotted cream, Raspberry Jam, Kaya Jam 

Pumpkin Soup / Chicken Stew 
Kohlrabi & Potato A’ la Creme /  Braised Beef Cheeks, Red wine, Root Vegetables 

Chicken Stew

Note: There is an oven here to keep the scones, curry puffs, their signature crab cakes & spring rolls warm. The chef will usually help us to take the items. But if the chef is not around, you can help yourselves to take the items here.

Their Signature:
Crispy Blue Swimmer Crab Cakes, Sauce Remoulade 

Display Fridge

Hummus, Chickpeas, Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

California Maki, Wasabi, Soy Sauce, Pickled Ginger 

Smoked Norwegian Atlantic Salmon
Sour Cream, Caper Berries, Dill 

Seafood On Ice:
Freshly Shucked Oysters / Poached Black Mussels / Clams

Note: Although the clams here are not big and look very normal, but I have to tell you, the clams here are the BEST among other hotels! Very juicy, tender & tasty!

Ice Cream & Sherbet

Vanilla with Pretzel Ice-Cream (Left)
Summer Berry Sherbet (Right)

2-Tier Stand
Top Tier: 8 Dessert Selections
Bottom Tier: Fruits
(All are Refillable)

This is the only dessert that I like from the top tier... The chocolate looked very rich but tasted quite light with pandan layer at the bottom. A very unique dessert!

Cappuccino & Latte


2 Types of  Extra Coffee (Pass Around)
The waitresses will go around to pass you some drip coffee brewed for hours from South America. Black Coffee and Coffee with Milk. I still prefer the black coffee! 

Beverages Menu (Free-Flow)

Overall Impression: The service here was quite good but not warm... Plates were cleared regularly, food and beverages were served promptly. But... Compared to my previous visit few years back, the food quality and dessert selection seemed to be lacklustre now. I would rather not to have the seafood selection, but instead give us premium quality food & dessert selection as this is a high tea buffet. 

The price is a little steep for a high tea buffet (Due to the additional seafood selection). I wished the price can maintain below SGD45 without the seafood selection, moreover this is a high tea buffet! But overall ambience + experience is a good one. Still worth a visit to have the tai tai style of high tea! :)

 I was so happy to see 4 types of local fav drinks here, but all of them were too sweet...

Roti Prata

Bread Selection

Hainanese Poached Chicken Rice
 Most of the Hainanese chicken rice from hotels never impress me. To my surprise, the chicken meat here was really smooth and tender compared to the dry and hard ones from other hotels. Remember to try this!

Roasted Pork Belly with Mustard Oriental Chilli & Dark Soya Sauce

Fried Bee Hoon / Fried Carrot Cake / Braised Beef Stew

Fried Black Pepper Prawns / Crispy Chicken Wings / Chicken & Beef Satay
 Remember to try their black pepper prawns if you see it. The prawns were succulent with very nice black pepper sauce! The satays here were equally good as well~!

Decent Dessert Station

Look out for their signature Chempadek Creme Brulee placed on the top tier! Yummy!

Movenpick Ice-Cream:
Vanilla / Chocolate

Free Flow Coffee & Tea

Their High Tea Buffet Menu for your reference
(Subject to changes)

Overall Impression: The food quality at Element restaurant has improved compared to my visit few years back. As this is a high tea buffet, I would expect to see wide variety desserts and quality dessert selection. But the desserts here were quite a let down and the selection are more or less the same & boring each time I've visited. The rest of the food here were mostly quite good! The service here was not bad but do not compare the service with those 5 star hotels. Overall this place is worth a visit, great for gatherings!
