LONDON, ENGLAND — The Arch London in Marylebone is launching an Afternoon Tea inspired by the thriving London Street Food scene.
Embracing the wonderfully diverse, multicultural flavours found in London’s Street Food scene, the 5* hotel’s new Afternoon Tea will give guests a taste of foods from around the world, not simply Britain.
The boutique hotel’s General Manager Michael Voigt said: ‘So many London hotels offer the same standard Afternoon Tea with scones, sandwiches and cakes’.
He continued: ‘We wanted to create an Afternoon Tea that is exciting and different, yet still gives people a quintessential taste of the best of modern London’.
The contemporary Afternoon Tea will offer fresh warm cinnamon and sugar doughnuts filled with apple jam in the place of scones.
Savoury delights will include Mini Beef Burgers with Onion Marmalade in Brioche Buns; Smoked Chicken, Chilli, Avocado and Mango Tortillas, Mini Handmade Scotch Eggs with Piccalilli; and Chicken Satay served with a Peanut Dipping Sauce and Sesame Seeds.
Sweet treats will include homemade Macaroons; exquisite Mini Coffee Éclairs; and a Lemon & Mango Rice Pudding with Toasted Coconut. Strawberry & Pistachio Tarts, and Mini Raspberry Victoria Sponges will provide a nod to the traditional British Afternoon Tea.
Priced at £29, and £38 with Champagne, the Afternoon Tea can be enjoyed in the hotel’s stunning Martini Library, stylish restaurant, or chic Salon de Champagne lounge.
As well as Champagne, guests can enjoy cocktails alongside the tea. These include Indian Clouds, a homemade jasmine tea infused cocktail; or Cuban Lager, a mojito without the rum, both priced at £12.
