I absolutely love afternoon tea, so I was super excited when Matt surprised me on Valentine’s Day with afternoon tea at the Palm Court restaurant in The Langham Hotel.
We’ve been super busy with moving house so it’s taken me a little while (like 2 months!!) to get this post out to you guys but I’m really excited to tell you all about it as it was such a special experience.
The Palm Court restaurant is beautifully decorated and the food is creative and delicious; so although it is one of the more expensive vegan afternoon teas in London, it was definitely worth a visit for a special treat.
There was an extensive selection of teas, including lots of fruit and herbal teas. During the course of the meal, we tried lots of them including the mint tea which was my favourite.
The bread that Palm Court uses isn’t vegan, so the chef creatively used waffle cones and popadoms to serve the sandwich fillings on. The fillings included a delicious falafel style chickpea pâté, hummus, cucumber, avocado, and tomato – all of which complemented each other perfectly. Although it was certainly an untraditional sandwich course, everything tasted amazing, so amazing in fact that we had 3 rounds of ‘sandwiches’!
The perfectly fluffy warm scones were served with sunflower spread and jam. They were so light, creamy and delicious and were my favourite part of the meal (of course, we had several rounds of this course too)!
The final course was a beautiful selection of Valentine’s Day themed cakes including: a chocolate cake, meringues, and my favourite: a fruit jelly.
The elegant atmosphere in the restaurant coupled with the delicious and creative food made for an incredible experience. If you’d like to visit the Palm Court for vegan afternoon tea, you can find out more about it here.
