Daily Vanity tried the Vegan Afternoon Tea prior to its official launch and we were pleasantly surprised by how we couldn’t tell that the items were vegan. This is despite not having butter, eggs, or cream – three of the most commonly used ingredients in pastries and sweets – in any of the food items.

Highlights for us include the Fishless Fingers, which really tasted like regular fish fingers, wrap, the chocolate brownie, which tasted rich and decadent.

We also enjoyed guessing what vegan alternatives were used for each item and were impressed by how skilful and smart the culinary team was in preparing this set. (If you don’t want to guess, just ask the server about each item!)
