Dessert Buffet at One-Ninety @ Four Seasons Hotel

A cabin crew client, Monica* and I had been talking about having nice desserts, and constantly discussed good desserts cafe or bistros. We both have sweet tooth, and there was nothing like sweets and pastries to perk up our days.

We'd read and heard good reviews about the Dessert Buffet at One-Ninety Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel for a while. Therefore, we decided to give it a try one day. One-Ninety is located at 190 Orchard Boulevard, Singapore 248646. For reservations, dial 6734 1110 or  6831 7250.

Upon reaching the grand foyer of the Four Seasons Hotel, we headed towards the main restaurant which was easily
was located. The Dessert Buffet was available from 2 - 3.30 pm on Mondays to Fridays. We were seated and served 
pots of tea of our choices, then informed of where the dessert counter was at. The restaurant was subtly elegant in 
its dimly-lit furnishings and we loved the serene quietness of the place.

We note that the dessert buffet was part of their lunch buffet, except that for us we were only entitled to help 
ourselves to the dessert selection. I had thought that it was a buffet specially catered to serve only desserts, but
no, this afternoon tea buffet was unique that way.

The selection was good, with a rather good selection of quality-looking desserts. We did not know where to start.

There were cakes, tarts, madeleines, panna cottas, pies, cookies, and items for chocolate fondue and other sweet pastries. 

We randomly filled our plates and headed back to our table to slowly savour the mouth-watering delicacies.

I selected a variety of cupcakes, cookies, slices of cakes (chocolate and durian) and scones etc. It was enjoyable to devour the sweet treats over fragrant hot teas while chatting away in the lazy afternoons - where the rest of the world was working.

All in all, we were very pleased with the Dessert Buffet. Do note that the selection is not very huge, but the quality is there. Every dessert tasted heavenly, and we went back for second helpings on some of the items.

It cost us SGD$18.00 per pax, but was very well worth-it. 

We would definitely love to come back here for more desserts.
