What a better way to spend a cold saturday afternoon than relaxing in one of the majestic salon of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, peeking at the Bund while sipping green tea and savoring delicious English scones?
The Waldorf Astoria is hosted in a grandiose town-house right on the Bund. As soon as you entered through the imposing wrought iron doors, looking right at the huge Christmas tree surrounded by a whole Christmas village in Chocolate (!), you realize how good your time promises to be…
Served in a cosy and intimate salon, the high-tea is a feast mixing english scones, jams, salmon sandwich, quiche, chocolate cake, macarons and other tasty delicacies.
They refill the plates if you ask them to do so, what a delicate attention.
I could have stayed there forever, listening to the sound of harp, observing the mannered and refined guests, and thinking about nothing but the little lemon tart that was eyeing me up…not for long though…
