Returning to this sophisticated high ceiling and open space at WOOBAR, we are having an afternoon treat with plenty of Shanghainese elements. This new afternoon tea set “Yeh! Shanghai” is prepared to celebrate the opening of W Shanghai – The Bund, featuring a few sweets and savouries that resemble some traditional Shanghai dishes.

Some favourites are the crispy suckling pig skin serving on soda biscuit with black caviar; a piece of cucumber stuffed with crunchy wood ear mushroom and jellyfish that resembles one of the reminiscent appetizer from Shanghainese cuisine.

The prawn is large in size, poached and served on a moreish sesame soy sauce mayonnaise. The set also comes with plain and raisin scones, relatively buttery and crumbly, with clotted cream and strawberry jam.

Plain & Raisin Scone with Clotted Cream & Strawberry Jam
An earl grey mousse cake with a citrus yellow jelly coating and pâte sablée crust; black sesame dumpling with an wonderfully sweet and crunchy sesame crisp; the ginger and plum macaroon is as well tasting pretty interesting.

Last but not the least, my most loved dessert is the Xiao Long Bao, which is basically a vanilla white chocolate mousse with multilayers of pistachio and raspberry jam, a feuilletine bottom, made in the shape of xiao long bao. A Chinese-fusion churros is generously sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.
