Top 10 afternoon tea experiences in Dubai
My favourite to date has to be The Peninsula in Hong Kong where I queued for two hours on my birthday a few years ago (only walk-ins were allowed), which happened to coincide with Easter Sunday.A close second is the Mount Nelson in Cape Town with its intimate buffet spread of sweet and savoury delights and quaint garden seating.The concept of afternoon tea dates back to Great Britain in the 1830’s, widely credited to one of Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting, Anna Maria Stanhope 7th, the Duchess of Bedford, to appease her mid-afternoon hunger pans at around 5pm.On our Dubai doorstep, we’re spoilt for choice with pretty much every hotel and cafe knocking up afternoon tea – a great way to entertain visiting friends.You may be interested in my interview for The National with the chief baking officer of cupcake champion Magnolia Bakery about their foray into savoury.P.P.S – on a slightly different note, I tried and tasted Fairmont Dubai’s new dine in the dark concept, Noire – here are FooDiva’s impressions. .
