One of London’s best steak houses, Heliot Steak House, is launching a meaty twist on the traditional afternoon tea. Aptly named MeaTea, the West End experience includes three tiers of meat-laden morsels and delicious sweets paired with a selection of classic teas and a specially created cocktail, wine or beer flight.
The MeaTea meat afternoon tea celebrates Heliot’s signature ingredient, 28-day aged USDA prime steak, alongside a host of other meaty delights. The middle tier of the afternoon tea is focused on beef and includes USDA sliders with truffle sauce, USDA grilled polpette with a spicy tomato sauce and USDA sirloin served on mini Yorkshire puddings with a red wine jus.
But the meat doesn’t stop there. Other meaty morsels on the menu include chicken lollipops with peri peri sauce, grilled chicken with pitta bread & avocado, chicken rolls with lemon thyme sauce and grilled lamb cutlets marinated with rosemary.
But while this is a treat for meat lovers, this is still afternoon tea. And as such, those with a sweet tooth are still catered for with a the selection of sweets also on offer, including summer fruit tartlets with mascarpone cheese, chocolate Kahlua tarts and a classic Victoria sponge with strawberry marmalade.
The MeaTea is served with the choice of a cocktail, beer or wine flight – a tasting of three drinks chosen specially to match each tier of the tea – as well as a large selection of English Breakfast and fruit teas.
Located at the Heliot Steak House overlooking the main casino gaming floor at The Hippodrome, MeaTea is available to book from the beginning of June and will be served on Saturdays and Sunday from 11.30am to 3.45pm. Priced at £35 per person for the full shebang, the MeaTea can also be ordered without the cocktail, beer or wine flight for £30 per person. Check out more details over at the Hippodrome Website.
