I met my brother for afternoon tea on a weekday. At that time, it was lunch time and the central business district were filled with throngs and throngs of people. We found a coffee joint at the newly renovated One Raffles Place. JBM Coffee and Dining looks very good place for catch ups.
I ordered myself a piece of lemon tart and a cup of chamomile tea. Though they have at least four to five staff during that time, it was a little hard for us to get their attention. The restaurant/cafe was not full as I could see pockets of empty tables. Still, we need some time to grab their attention. My overall dining experience cost me less than SGD20.
Chamomile Tea (SGD 6.50) was just chamomile tea. So, just like any other infusion teas, it was normal. So I shan't say much.
Lemon Tart (SGD6), however, was a little disappointment. The lemon custard was too soft and the crust was too thick. It was very challenging to cut the tart. The funny thing was that the service staff gave us a dessert spoons for the tart. Isn't it supposed to be a fork? I wonder what was the rationale to serve us with a spoon. The tart, though thick, was sweet and flavourful. The lemon custard, ignoring the texture, was rather delicious. If only the lemon custard could be a little firmer and the tartlet less thick, the dessert would be a winner. (Food rating: 2.5/5)
