Located at the lobby of Hilton Manila, Madison Lounge & Bar is the perfect abode for relaxation and intricately-curated afternoon tea. This season, they’re treating us to a buffet like no other. If you’re used to having your afternoon tea on three tiers, then it’s time to reinvigorate as Madison Lounge & Bar amplified their afternoon tea game with their Choco Berry Afternoon Tea Buffet.
Delectable pastries, dainty finger sandwiches, and mouth-watering sweets, mostly in chocolate and berry flavor, are the highlight of the Choco Berry Afternoon Tea Buffet. It’s not only a feast for the eyes with its colorful creations but also a play of flavors in the mouth as each sweet or savory finger food is distinctly delightful.
Madison Lounge and & Bar also set up a little bar for crepes and waffles, which we artistically enjoyed as we personally decorated our own. The serving for the crepe is just enough while the waffle is quite hefty. Both can be turned into a savory dish as well, just whip out the rightful ingredients upon ordering.
Of course, this wouldn’t be complete without the drinks. We opted for Dilmah Sencha Green Tea, and Hot Chocolate, both with light taste to compliment the sugar rush from all the pastries. Coffee is also available and free-flowing as well. Wine and Champagne can be ordered for an additional charge.
We initially got one plate for the sweet and one plate for the savory. Each item is exquisite and left a mark in our palate. The heart-shaped french macaron is one for the books, and surely, Madison Lounge & Bar too. The ambience is superb and the sincere hospitality of all their staff is outstanding, we’re already looking forward on dining here again soon.
