<<8th August 2019 – Hong Kong>> Inspired by the culinary traditions of Catalunya, La Rambla launches its first Spanish afternoon tea set featuring sweet and savoury bites by Chef Ferran Tadeo. Available from 3pm till 5pm every day, the tea set is perfect to enjoy amongst La Rambla’s sleek interior or on the harbour-facing terrace during summer months. Spanish tapas-style delights are paired with freshly-brewed loose leaf tea from Plantation by teakha, a local craft tea company founded by teakha café.
With each afternoon tea set priced at HK$480+10% for two, guests will first make their tea selection among six specially curated options such as Plantation by teakha’s Red Jade with Bergamot Peel, an organic red jade tea from Nantou province in Taiwan, mixed with dried bergamot peel. For a more classic afternoon tea, opt for the Plantation Breakfast, the Plantation’s interpretation of traditional breakfast tea with the unique twist of fruity red jade. The coffee option comes from La Rambla’s own sister café Elephant Grounds, the Elephant Grounds ‘OG’ Blend, consisting of specialty-grade Arabica beans from Papua New Guinea and Brazil, combined with the robust nature of the Supremo Colombian beans for extra body.
At La Rambla, the afternoon tea set breaks from tradition in more ways than one. In addition to boasting a contemporary Spanish theme, savoury bites dominate the menu for an ideal afternoon treat. The set includes Chef Ferran’s famous signature Avocado Lobster, made with fine slices of fresh avocado wrapped around a lobster salad; Jamon Croquetas, Spanish croquettes filled with creamy béchamel and Iberico ham; Bocadillos, or Spanish-style sandwiches of ham and cheese, and roasted wagyu; and finally, The Rustic Perfect Egg, an indulgent bite of scrambled egg, caviar, black truffle and potato foam served in an egg shell. For dessert, dig into ‘Xurros’, or homemade churros with salted caramel, and an assortment of fine Spanish pastries to conclude the experience.
Further upgrade your afternoon tea experience with La Rambla’s selection of wines available by the glass. The highly-rated wines on offer include Agusti Torello Mata Trepat 2015 “Rose” (HK$110), Agusti Torello Mata Brut Reserva 2015 (HK$110) and a bubbling glass of Krug Grande Cuvee (HK$390) champagne.
