The tradition of enjoying an afternoon tea paired with sandwiches, pastries, and other finger food began in the 1700s. This pleasant British ritual is a meal usually savoured around 3 to 4 o’clock. Initially meant to be a break for working men, high tea was traditionally eaten sitting on high stools or standing up, hence the term “high”.
While hugely popular in Singapore, regular high teas might start to make less economic sense. Throwing your own high tea party with a home catering partner gives you more control over the budget, menu, and location.
Although there aren’t hard and fast rules when it comes to food selection, a standard afternoon high tea traditionally includes sandwiches, cakes, pastries, and other snacks. Other popular choices in Singapore include local delights like dim sum, chicken rendang, sotong balls, samosas, and curry puffs.
Le Rainbow has been providing halal food catering to Singapore since 2016. Though a relatively young company, we are a team of passionate foodies committed to providing affordable and delectable food through our event catering services in Singapore.
Food Catering for Birthdays, Baby Showers, and Other Events
Planning an event can be loads of fun but also incredibly stressful. You’ll need to think about the guest list, decorations, beverages, menu, and activities. Add the time needed for food preparation on top of everything, and you best be ready for a very busy day.
Great food is the central puzzle piece to every successful party. From a friend’s baby shower to a significant other’s 50th birthday, you want the occasion to be unique with happy and satiated guests.
A high tea menu makes the perfect complement for birthday parties, baby showers, other private celebrations, and even corporate networking events. As high teas are meant to be light and not overly filling, the comprise primarily of finger foods and other “grab-and-go” snacks. A main course option like rice, noodles, or pasta can be added for variety and to fulfil more voracious appetites. Le Rainbow’s high tea menus boast an exciting range of Western, fusion, and local food.
Our Muis halal-certified kitchen is equipped with the latest automated equipment and top-quality facilities to help us prepare for your next event. We aspire to provide the best food catering in Singapore and pride ourselves on our strict hygiene standards, excellent customer service, and innovative, palate-pleasing dishes.
