Which is a weird thing to type out. I mean, teatime that's… gendered?
But it's a marketing thing, right? We suppose it is a stunt to grab eyeballs and put butts into seats. Prego's Gentlemen's Tea isn't closed off to those who don't identify as male; in fact, anyone can opt for it. But if you're not hot on the whole "tea-for-the-gents" premise, come for the food.
Unlike Prego's other afternoon tea (a SGD48 medley of Italian classics like antipasti and deli-style offerings), the Gentlemen’s Tea menu adds steak pies, meaty sandwiches and even a glass of whisky. Spread across three courses, patrons start with Salato (savoury) options like the Pasticcio di manzo in crosta, a baked beef pie, and a Salsiccia casereccia con salsa di miele e pepperoncino, a garlic sausage with pickled gherkin and chilli jam.
The second course includes a Brioche con prosciutto affumicato e cheddar (smoked ham, gorge cheddar and brioche) and a Minuta di manzo Stanbroke, salsa al pomodoro e cipolla (steak and chimichurri on sourdough). We end with desserts like the Sigari di cioccolato amaro (bitter chocolate cigars) and a Macaron di mandorle al caffe’ macchiato (coffee macchiato macaron). Your Gentleman's Tea also comes with a Glenmorangie Lasanta Single Malt whisky or, if you're feeling teetotal, TWG Tea or coffee.
