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?
