After nearly eight months of lockdown, we’re all hankering for a proper afternoon tea.

The Peninsula Manila may still be closed, but after months of tinkering, experimenting, and tasting at the hotel kitchens, we may finally have our cake and eat it too.

The Real Reason I Miss Restaurants Has Nothing to Do With Food

Introducing, The Peninsula Cakeaway Afternoon Tea Set. It comes with scones, with clotted cream, lemon curd, strawberry jam, cake, dainty finger sandwiches, macarons, and other sweet and savory delights.

Included in the package is a charming three-tier stand inspired by The Lobby’s Villeroy & Boch Minton Haddon Hall china pattern packed in a tall Peninsula page hat takeaway box.

For a more substantial tea, add savory items from the hotel’s 44th Anniversary Menu highlighting specials such as The Lobby’s pancit luglug; beef Wellington or duck confit cassoulet from Old Manila; Spices’ salmon tikka masala or asam goreng; sushi from Escolta; avocado toast from the Pool Snack Bar, and The Peninsula Boutique’s fabulous strawberry shortcake.

Treats from Spices at the Peninsula Manila include nasi goreng, tom nuong, and chicken satay.

Slide into happy hour with a Negroni, Margarita, and Aperol Spritz from The Bar/ Salon de Ning, or live it up with an iced bottle of Deutz Cuvée Peninsula Brut Champagne.
