@oxo_tower has got their vegan menu down to an afternoon TEA 👌🏼 (Invite)
Remember the days when you could barely even get a vegan sandwich in a supermarket? 🥪 Now, fancy restaurants are offering us trays upon trays of sarnies & cakes 🍰 It’s amazing to see how much of a demand there is for vegan food, and we all know what happens when consumers demand things… Change happens ✌🏼
For (I think) a very reasonable £35, you can look over The Thames whilst sipping on your tea with your pinky out and indulge in:
🥪 Vegan cheese & pickle sandwich (Could’ve eaten ten of these)
🥪 Golden beetroot, aged balsamic, rosemary & Russian rye bread (This wasn’t right for me, a bit too sweet)
🥪 Cucumber pickle, dill, yellow mustard seeds & beetroot bread .
🥪 Lemon tofu, roasted garlic, oregano, sage & onion stuffing & cranberry bread (Didn’t expect to love this as much as I did but it was my fave)
🍄 Wild mushrooms on toast .
🌱 Berbere lentils
🌱 Avocado shot (This wasn’t for me – it was like an avocado smoothie. Not my thang)
🌱 Chesnut & mushroom spring roll .
🌱 Parsnip & shallot bhaji
🌱 OXO Piccalilli, Orchard chutney, mint yoghurt
🍰 Lemon meringue pie (holy hell this was delicious)
🍰 Apple mousse
🍰 Coconut & Pineapple cake
🍰 Homemade scones with strawberry jam and clotted ‘cream’ (these were a little too sour for me but then I’m not a scone lover anyway so maybe not the best judge)
I’m really impressed by @oxo_tower’s offering. A reasonable price considering the location, brilliant service and the food is well thought out and creative. You all probably know that I’m a savoury gal by now, so I would’ve preferred a few more savoury items but that’s just personal preference. This would be a great place to take someone for a special occasion ♥️🌱 This was an invite .
