High Tea Party at Oasis Garden Cafe in Solaire

Coffee, tea, and tiny cakes are a few of my favorite things. That’s why when Edel sent me to the High Tea Party as a representative for Kitchen Goddess, I was ecstatic. It was a chance to try a variety of tea and sumptuous cakes.

This selection of pastry includes bibingka, spring roll, and leche flan.


The High Tea Party was held at the Oasis Garden Cafe in Solaire Resort & Casino, Paranaque City. The Oasis Garden Cafe is true to its name. It serves as the centerpiece of Solaire’s Sky Tower, a sanctuary after a tiring day or week. Its interior design mimics a bird’s nest, making the entire place unique and refreshing. The place even becomes more refreshing with its transparent glass roof and cascading water features.

To top off the relaxing vibe, a piano is placed at the heart of the cafe. During our afternoon tea, we enjoyed the food and the live piano music.

The Oasis Garden Cafe offers a wide and very classy selection of coffee and tea. During the High Tea Party, we got the chance to try four different kinds of tea. My favorite was the Passion Green tea. It was fruity and light to the taste.


We also tried  a wide array of cakes and finger sandwiches--from the popular chocolate cakes to the more unique type of sandwich topped with smoked salmon. Every piece of pastry was appealing to the eyes and the taste buds.

After the afternoon tea, Oasis Garden Cafe turns into a lounge where one can hang out and have a cocktail served with the “usual Solaire panache”.

The Oasis Garden Cafe is open every day until midnight. If you are looking to unwind and get a break from your busy city life, Oasis Garden Cafe is a perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea and your favorite pastry without traveling far away from the city.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
