Anti:dote is a stylish and modern cocktail bar with a progressive selection of concoctions that appeals to the most discerning taste buds. Combining the craftsmanship of traditional bartending and the artistry of experimental mixology techniques, classic recipes are reinterpreted with contemporary flair. At Anti:dote, drinks crafted with premium spirits and housemade bitters, liqueurs and sodas are paired perfectly with innovative modern tapas. In the chic bar and open show kitchen, both the head craftsman and chef work in unison to create cocktails and modern tapas using aromatic herbs and produce from the bar’s very own herb garden.

Anti:dote has been highly raved about for their classic “Cosmetic Dessert Box” by many magazines and friends who have patronised anti:dote. As a lady, how can I resist beautiful things?
Beautiful things are meant to be shared with good friends. So I visited them on 24 March 2015 with my girlfriend, Candy Tan & later joined by the husband after his meeting. Finally managed to take a photo together for our 2nd high tea session but apparently, an “uninvited” guest was in the background somehow.
Classic pinkish utensils to begin with.. Oh! What a girly thing!! How can any ladies not be attracted to them?

Don’t you just fall in love with the presentation of the desserts?
Petit Desserts consist of Strawberry Gateau, Limoncino Napoleon, Cappuccino Comtessa, Framboise Lychee Macaron, Red Cherry Rose Ball, Karukera Chocolate Mirror Tart, Chocolate Pralines & Chocolate-dipped strawberry.
Sandwiches consists of:
First Column : Confit duck rillette, foie gras terrine, pickled onion

Third Column : Iberico ham quiche, mozzarella, black truffle / Preserved Capsicum

** Guest Relation Officers noted that I was pregnant so they actually inform the chef and changed 2 (Second & Third Columns) of the sandwiches with raw ingredients to fully cooked ingredients for me. That’s really a sweet gesture!! Good Job!!
Warm Raisin and Candied Ginger Scones
Butter Cookies & Homemade Strawberry Jam, Devonshire Clotted Cream, Lemon Curd
Simply looking at the photographs can almost make you drool and crave to try these delicate petit desserts.
I would recommend anti:dote bar located at Fairmont Hotel, Level 1 (Raffles City) for a relaxing afternoon tea with your girlfriends and boyfriends. However, I’d insist on making an advanced reservation by calling them at 6431 5315 or emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org as their afternoon tea are prepared in accordance to limited quantity to ensure quality desserts. Therefore, you may be “rejected” for afternoon tea, not seating should no reservations be made.
Afternoon Tea $$$
- S$45++ per adult (additional S$15 for a glass of champagne)
- S$15++ per child (refer to the child menu)
Afternoon Tea Hours
Weekdays | 3pm to 5pm
Weekends & PH | 12pm to 2pm (First Seating) , 3pm to 5pm (Second Seating)
Hope you have enjoyed reading and viewing the photograph of the classic petit desserts as much as I have enjoyed them at anti:dote bar. I am trying to do a weekly recommendation of places that I have visited for your reading pleasure before delivery (less than 4 weeks) as it would mean a month of confinement with very “heaty” homecooked food, not recommended for the ‘faint hearted”.
Nonetheless, do continue to support and follow Chef Mummy Tan’s on all other social media for constant updates of photography at Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
Wishing everyone a Cheery Wednesday from Singapore!!
