Seriously! It’s much more fun to eat dinner when it comes on tiers.
My Husband is British — he moved to America when we was 16. Whenever we see a British restaurant, we always feel compelled to check it out. It’s like a little slice of home for the Husband.
Shakespeare’s Fine English Tea Room was like a diamond in the rough! Such great food — and reasonably priced, too. Plus, my dinner was too cute for words:
I thought the Afternoon Tea platter was going to be small (ha!) so I started off with a cup of Leek and Potato Soup:
And — of course — some snobby British tea. Which the Husband served to me with a snobby pinkie finger in the air. 🙂
Such cute dishes:
Our tiered dinner was so amazing — I literally gasped when it was delivered to our table (the Husband and I each got our own tier).
The bottom tier featured fruit, a regular scone, and a raisin scone. I had the regular scone and saved the other one for later:
The middle tier featured a mini quiche, a side salad, two cucumber and cream cheese sammies and two egg sammies. I’m ate the quiche, salad, and two cucumber sandwiches:
The top tier was the BEST TIER! It was the dessert tier.
My tactic for not overdoing it on the dessert tier was to just have a bite of everything, and then only finish off the desserts that were really, really food.
Obviously, this was QUITE a lot of food, but it was such a dining experience and so fun. 🙂
Before dinner, we went to the movie theater:
We saw District 9. The Husband and I both give District 9 two thumbs up. It was a great sci fi movie and very original, which is a hard thing to do in the genre. If you’re into sci fi, I highly recommend it! At the movie theater, I snacked on a plum that I snuck in my purse:
I also posted this Operation Beautiful note in the bathroom at the theater. It made me happy. 🙂
Oof! I’m going to digest on the couch. I have a 8.0 miler planned for the morning. 🙂
Have you ever been to London?
Oh my goodness! That looks so cute! I love the authentic dishes too! The dessert looks like HEAVEN! Glad you found this place! He must miss home! My entire family are all basically british (including parents) We always always order food from "back home" Not always the healthiest either..note crisps..and cadbury chocolate lol
