Follow Me To || Landmark Hotel – Afternoon Tea

As-Salaamu Alaikum
Peace Be Upon You

Afternoon tea is the perfect catch up moment with a close friend. The atmosphere, food, tea and sweet treats make the moment all that extra little bit special.

On this occasion, I decided to catch up close friend, we didn’t feel like going out for a heavy meal or doing anything particular, this was a nice, relaxed moment to catch up without any loud chatter or noise. We finally found out the location of that infamous afternoon tea place with all the palm trees – we headed straight there!!!

The moment you step into Landmark Hotel, you feel as though you’ve stepped into a spa, I’m not sure what they’re spraying or what exotic flowers they had at their disposal – but it smells like how I imagine paradise to be.

We opted for the “Winter Garden Afternoon Tea” as opposed to the chocolate, this includes:
– A variety of sandwiches
– Scones, clotted cream and a variety of jams (we opted for strawberry and blackberry)
– Raspberry and lime macaroon/ carrot, raisin and cinnamon cake with cream cheese icing/ Dark Chocolate Choux/ Mango and mint mousse
– A pot of tea each – we highly recommend The Winter Garden Blend (honestly… it smells like cake!!!) and the Landmark Hotel Blend – it’s a house special for a reason and it’s nicely curated.

As soon as we were seated we were offered our tea and selection of sandwiches, they were aware of my dietary requirements (Halal, or in this case vegetarian) so offered me sandwiches accordingly, and boyyy did they keep on bringing them. This genuinely was a buffet of afternoon tea and sandwiches. In this instance, I loved the small finger-sized food, made it much easier to eat and control, the scones were by far my favourite treat, soft doughy little scones, they offered plain and currant ones; adored the fresh strawberry jam. It’s a nice change from your good old coffee shop.

It was a very pleasant and stress free setting where we found ourselves passing by two hours with ease. There’s no hectic rush that you’d usually feel outside, we found ourselves getting immersed into really lovely deep long talks, something that was very much needed.

From all the food that was served, the scones, the raspberry/lime macaroon and the Winter Garden Blend of tea was my favourite. I highly recommend this place and if you do have the chance to go, don’t overfeed yourselves on the sandwiches and tea, save a spot (or two) for the scones and cakes, you won’t be disappointed xoxo

Follow Me To || Dinner at The Folly & The Wicked

It was my birthday on the 7th November, I’m typically not one to celebrate it much but I did make an excuse to visit certain places because of it 🙂 As a result, I ended up dragging a friend out to The Folly, which is a bar/restaurant, and to watch a theatre product of The WICKED. All in all a very good day well spent. Here’s a quick blurry video of the night, enjoy!
