The Perfect Meal
I really can't say enough good things about afternoon tea. What a perfect meal to a day of shopping, n'est ce pas? Today M and i had tea at the new Connaught Hotel. What a jewel of a place! The service was impeccable (i never once had to pour my own tea), the sandwiches INCREDIBLE (normally tea sandwiches are just so-so, not so at the Connaught), and the desserts abundant. We had two plates full of treats and thought we were through. On the contrary... our server then led us to a big table with an array of delicious tarts. We got to pick one. Each. I got the tarte tatin (apple tart) and the apple couldn't have been sliced thinner. Perfection. M got a shortbread/pistachio cream/strawberry number. Yum. I can't recommend afternoon tea at the Connaught more - it's the best (so far..) London has to offer.
